i have a 1991 R129 300 SL-24 and have been incurring intermittent faults which cause the car to die and leaving me stranded. When trying to re-start the car it fires briefly on first attempt and then dies again. It can be a couple of days before the car starts again without any...
just picked up my new 1991 300 SL-24. It comes complete with its fair share of problems and i (my father) is working his way through them.
I was hoping that i might be able to locate a wiring diagram for the electric seats but i have so far failed. I need one for the 1991...
I have for sale a Lesjofors rear coil spring for the W123 (1976-1985).
I ordered a front spring for my 230 CE but received this instead.
It is brand new, never been fitted. Part number is 123324060.
Open to offers.
Could anyone point me in the right direction for confirmation of the correct pressure for the transmission modulator on a W123 230 CE please?
The transmission number is:
123 270 52 01 722 401 02 206723
Many thanks in advance!
Thanks BME63, if i can find the time and resources id love to sort out the bodywork and get it resprayed in the original colour. It is called Cypress Green - ive got the colour code from the spec sheet from Mercedes Benz - let me know if you want it!
sorry all, regards the hose, the circle is to show it has split. If anyone has a spare i could acquire, or know if this hose is still available from Mercedes (and knows what it is called), id be grateful.
good evening all. Still not having much look with the running problems.
I was hoping that a few of you might be able to help in the continued absence of a decent manual/workshop book and help me identify the following components in the photos below.
For ease of reference, the hose set up...
i probably should have mentioned that the car had been sat for the last 3 years prior to my purchase.
I took the tank and strainer out today and both were gunked up. Ive cleaned it out now but will wait a few days for it to thoroughly dry out before re-fitting and see if this has made any...
morning all. Went out to start the car this morning, started on first turn and then sat at just under 2,000 rpm owing to the adjustments we made last night. Engine revved perfectly up to redline and held revs on the throttle.
I then did a number of short drives up and down the drive way and...
Thanks Derek. Ive checked the plugs and they were a bit sooted up, cleaned them off, ran it then checked again an sooted up. Running a bit rich.
Indeed we have now adjusted the fuel/air mixture and it idles at 2,000 rpm and revs smoothly thereafter on the throttle so we think enough fuel/air...
i discovered a missing tension spring on part of the throttle linkage. I found a spring and attached this and the engine revs and runs sweetly.
I then took it for a drive and after around 3 minutes of working fine, it returned to the coughing, spluttering and popping under...
Good morning all,
I have just taken delivery of a 1984 230 CE (hopefully with pics attached).
Unfortunately i have yet to drive the car owing to the following problem:
The car starts fine and idles nicely at around 500 rpm, however when i apply throttle the car will only increase in...
