Hesitating Wiper Repair

NOTE: This repair was done on my 1994 C280. However since this type of wiper was universal, it should apply to all W202 models. I cannot guarantee 100% accuracy nor can I be liable for any damage one can cause to his or her car or self.

This seems to be a very common problem these days with W202 Mono-Wipers. The symptoms typically include a very slow wiper movement along with hesitation as it reaches certain points on the wiper cycle. This fix essentially lubes the wiper mechanism. It is probably a good idea to do it yearly to keep the wiper moving well all year.
