Guys I need a wiper motor for my 1996 E250. Any idea where I can get one in hyderabad?. I tried mahavir motors they said atleast 14 days since it is not available in pune, they have to get it from Singapore or Germany. Other guy said atleast 1 week need to get it from dubai.

Since it is a bosch wiper motor (I saw on the work bill) will any bosch wiper motor work?

Try getting a old motor from a junk yard, rarely any part supplier will stock this part as they rarely go

Can any body help me source an original clutch hose ? It looks like this. ..this one is a duplicate. Really bad as it hs a lot of resistance when I try blowing thru it. Say ita 80-90% restricted. My clutch feels like a brake pedal!

Damn! it looks like new, what could possibly be wrong, did you try shooting some compressed air through it?

Just what I would have done, except I would have used a coat hanger. Assuming it is the straight end, can't you cut off the crimp, cut the hose to size and have it re crimped? I don't have the tool, but I am sure there is someone who can crimp it for you in Delhi. Attached is a picture of a tool and brass fittings that could do the job.

If it's the straight end, why not try a drill bit and clear the restriction?

Tried hammering a nail..maybe I need a heavier hammer...drilling would be tricky business. But worth a try!

Thanks guys but the service advisor called and let me know that he was able to source one costing Rs.11,000, i decided to go for it as i was having a hard time sourcing it myself and i need the car back quickly.

Do you guys know if i can get a blank key, preferably original (w/o any transponder) in India ? I only got one key so thought it would be wise to keep a spare key handy. I saw some on ebay but am worried about the quality.

Blank key for w124? Yes i can send you one... I am not sure what you mean by "transponder" ? The one I have is just a regular key.

yes blank key for 1996 E250D, if you can get a couple of them for me that would be great. please PM me the details.
From what i read (i may have been mistaken) there were some late model w124's with remote locking so their keys have transponders built in them.
