    WTB: 94-up Headlight wiper blades 124-820-02-45-67

    Looking for 2 Bosch blades that are in good to new condition. I believe the part number is 124-820-02-45-67

    Wow, these headlight wiper refills went stupid expensive. $62 list EACH, $46 discount each:
    https://www.mboemparts.com/oem-parts...e-124820024567

    That is up 3x (+200%) from five years ago, when they were "only" $22 each list at the dealer. Appears all the Bosch aftermarket sources are gone, they had been as low as $5 each circa 2010. I don't think you're going to find them anywhere but the dealer, and $90/pair is downright silly.

    EDIT: They might, possibly, be NLA from MB? Anyone call a dealer to find out?

    FCP shows "Discontinued":

    Importec still has a half-dozen pairs in stock, but that's about the only place I could find 'em...

    These went up within the past weeks. MB of Portland can't get them despite being online at their site for about 44 buck each. Spoke to Art in parts today on the phone (mbpartspros.com website for MB of Portland Rx by GSXR (thanks again)) and confirmed this despite the fact their online parts store lists them for $44.03 each. He told me he has to buy the Bosch from a distributor and since the dealer gets a discount automatically "their" distributor won't sell them to me as they make no money. Not making this up. He gave me a number to call direct but having been down that road before I thought I would try the results from my online search for part number 124-820-02-45-67 and a replacement came up for very cheap, well cheaper. I bought them but can't vouch for them until I get them. Autopartswarehouse had search results for that wiper blade number and claims - Bosch 3398113068 Headlight Wiper Blade - Replaces OE Number 124-820-02-45 67 for $20.26usd each So I bought a pair and shipping to CA USA was $50.93usd. So I guess I "found" some but not sure how to end thread.

    I'm seeing Bosch as unavailable too, unless some vendors have old stock laying around (like Importec).

    Amazon also shows unavailable for Bosch 3398113068:
    https://www.amazon.com/Bosch-3398113.../dp/B001CO18E0

    I hope Autopartswarehouse comes through, but don't get your hopes up. I'm pretty confident that Importec does still have a few sets but they will cost you nearly $120/pair.

    Possible workaround courtesy of another forum member:

    FWIW, I have been purchasing just 24" Bosch inserts (no Frame/assembly) and cutting them down (no gluing) for these headlight wiper blades.

    Works great.

    Works for both facelifted and pre-facelift W124s.

    You need to swap over the stainless-steel strips, and use the old wiper as a template to cut.

    +1 On using the wiper refills cut down for these - works just fine.

    These headlamp wiper motors and arms have pretty high demand locally and people nab them fast on parts cars. But over the years I have accumulated a box full of spare motors and arms. At least a dozen. Glad I did now as people ask silly money for the HL wiper kits.

    Most of these headlamp motors don't even work unless stripped and rebuilt due to the flaw if the Internal plastic gears "growing" inside and seizing up.

    Exactly! Which is why we need some guidance here from the How-To jedi master.

    I looked at the old wipers and it doesn't appear to be a straightforward job to pop in modified-length refills. And, Neil mentioned something about having to swap over the metal inserts, etc...

    Some of us, the more prescient owners, have a set or two of new, factory spares in their parts stock. Obtained years ago, when they were still cheap and easily available.

    Yes, but some of us, the more prescient owners, don't want to open those sealed packages lest the original Bosch air leak out.

    Especially if said blades will be going on a pedestrian E420 that will get actual winter usage where the headlight wipers get, like, used on snow & ice.
