    Water Leak in the boot Lid E200

    Maarten - found your post when looking for help. I have exactly the same problem as you on my 1996 E220 coupe. Did you manage to fix yours? Cheers, Jude.

    WANTED - Heated electric driver's mirror for 1996 w124 coupe

    I desperately need one of these, including glass, for my 1996 UK car - mine was smashed off while the car was parked. I have the painted mirror cover and the inch wide centre trim that goes round the circumference of the mirror so don't necessarily need those bits. Mine has the wiring passing...

    Loud whirring noise - rear wheel bearings?

    Update on my car - the diff has been fitted and the old girl purrs like a kitten on goldtop again. Result. The whole repair was about £300 all in. The diff was from a 1995 M111 engined car, and mine is a Jan 1996 M111 car so no problems with compatibility. I paid £200 plus postage for the...

    Loud whirring noise - rear wheel bearings?

    Yes Chris. My mechanic told me yesterday that after testing the car he found out that it is definitely the differential. This is good news as I found a diff off a 111K mile car with full history for £125. Hopefully my car will be back on the road by the end of the week. The car I am getting...

    Loud whirring noise - rear wheel bearings?

    The whine does not change tone when going round a bend. My mechanic (who is Merc trained) is pretty sure it's the diff. It's going in to him tomorrow so I will know soon enough. He has some gadget(s) that he attaches to the prop and diff that can tell him if they are the culprit. I've found...

    Loud whirring noise - rear wheel bearings?

    They would have to be from a cheap Chinese tractor to make that noise. They are decent matched Goodyears all round.

    Loud whirring noise - rear wheel bearings?

    My 54K miles 1996 E220 coupe has developed a whirring noise that is speed sensitive - the faster the car goes the louder it gets. When I put the car into neutral while driving the noise does not stop, so I'm assuming it is not transmission related. Possibly rear wheel bearings? It does not...

    Any good bodywork places in South East to paint and fit W124 front wing?

    Dave, re Nick F's reply above. Did you have both your W124 wings done at the same time? Any issues with paint matching? My car is 'brilliant silver' and I think has been garage kept most of its life so the paint does not appear faded. Many thanks. Jude

    Any good bodywork places in South East to paint and fit W124 front wing?

    Can anyone recommend a bodyshop in the South East (preferably Surrey) to paint and fit a new front wing for my 1996 W124 coupe? Cheers. Jude

    Owner's manual/handbook for 1996 w124 e220 coupe

    Thanks Graeme. The last time I tried Mercedes Croydon for a manual for my old 230CE I waited weeks and then they got me the wrong manual. Thought I would try people in the know first! Would someone be able to post a photo of the cover of their manual that covers my car, so I can put...

    Owner's manual/handbook for 1996 w124 e220 coupe

    Hi all. After a few years away from Mercs I've just bought a nice Jan 1996 W124 E220 coupe (only 52K!) It came without a manual/handbook - how can owners lose these? The car is quite highly specced - electric seats (driver with memory settings), infra-red central locking plus everything else...

    Merc Only in Hanwell, W7 - DON'T USE THEM

    Well, I certainly didn't expect so many responses to that post... The solenoid valve relay sits in the ABS hydraulic pump, and is essential to the operation of the ABS system. A couple of weeks before bringing the car to MO, I activated the system during an emergency stop so I know it was...
