    Goodbye dear friend

    Thank you Charles. I'm not expecting a concourse example for the money l'm willing to spend, but gearboxes and serious rust are not part of my plan. Apart from the arches, where else should l be looking for rust? l work for ECP, so the staff discounts are generous to say the least (OE plugs...

    Goodbye dear friend

    So, on my way to work on Friday morning, some muppet in a Rover 75 pulled out in front of me on a roundabout without looking and the inevitable happened. I've a funny feeling that was the last time l drove my W124:(. After almost 5 years of ownership, not once did she let me down or leave me by...

    Relay ?

    How would this affect the central locking, alarm and the electric windows not working with the ignition switched off ? The rear interior lights work, just not when the doors are open. They were all working prior to this.

    Relay ?

    It's not a blade fuse, it's one of the old style continental fuses and it looks fine. I think everything l mentioned not working above is covered by more than one fuse and everything was working fine before this, hence the reason l thought a relay was at fault.

    Relay ?

    The puddle light on my drivers door, at one point during the previous owners life, broke a clip and was held in with a piece of Blu-Tac, which then gave up the ghost causing the light to pop out and smash while he closed the drivers door. It was then popped inside the door and forgotten...

    Bosch or MB battery ??

    Bear in mind that Bosch is an aftermarket battery. You'll probably find Exide are the O/E equivelant.

    W124 Door handle

    Once again Druk came up trumps, even showed me how to fit it. Bit disappointed he wouldn't take anything for it. Many thanks Derek (yet again).

    W124 Door handle

    Has anyone got a N/S/F door handle kicking about their garage for a '91 W124 230 TE they no longer need? Somebody tried to break into my car whilst off on holiday and destroyed the handle in the process. It's the small square section with the barrel that's missing. The door opens fine without...

    Bad e-bay'er

    Only the old Saab 900 can pull off 3 spoke alloys.

    My beautiful W124 has been Stolen

    Does anyone else think this will push the insurance premiums up for the 124's?

    How Much 20 Years Ago?

    My 230TE was registered on the 1st October 1991. It has mushroom leather and an electric sunroof but no A/C. Can anyone tell me what the dealer price for this would've been in 91 brand new and what that converts to in money today? TIA......
