One headlamp mists, I know the inherent design fault and sealing problems.
During the summer it was swimming, like a goldfish bowl🐟 took it off dried it out and resealed it, seemed to work for awhile too. Inevitably with the weather turning, it's just started to mist slightly, managed to sort...
I just had an "out the blue" speculative call from my local friendly supplier of mb parts today (not main dealer)
How much for a pair of wings says I, £807 per side says he. Good job I was sitting down, I didn't get the chance to ask if that Inc VAT!
High all, after advice before I set too. My car came with one remote, I had a blank cut several yrs ago, remote stays in the draw and I just manually lock the car.
Recently the the key only works one way up in the drivers door, the other (main key with remote) doesn't work att all when used...
I know it's supposed to to this to warm the cats, but it gets a bit embarrassing. Pull out of the drive, gentle gradient downhill and it holds onto 2nd gear for a couple of hundred meters.
The engine feels like it's revving it's nuts off circa 3k @ 30-40mph. It'll then change up and everythings...
Fine one day, then idle went awol and misfire started, felt like 2 cylinders but may have been one. Total mileage driven with miss about 4 miles.
Took car home and left it, whilst errands run in spare car.
Several hours later I started it miss still there, I ran a diagnostic blink code...
Hi I've damaged my right hand rear light lens in a careless parking maneuver, the shattered bit's are long gone in the bin.
I've been trying to buy one from ebay, but struggling to see one the same, they're either the later shape with 3 ribs. The others are early but look more orange around...
Hi I'm after a rear lapbelt for an R129 SL in black if anyone has one?
I've a 3 point harness in the back on the passenger side (works with child seats) that I'm happy to swap. It looks genuine MB, the fittings match and it uses the original socket.
Okay so coolant leak from this area, stupid place to put them under the brake servo, can't see properly or work easily down there.
I suspected the duo valve, I've had the thing apart in the past, to clean it up when jammed.
However I can't see any obvious leak, the coolant circulator...
I'm carrying out some maintenance and I have removed the resonance valve. 94 SL 3.2
It has a rubber nipple by the electrical connection, that just vents to the atmosphere, when I suck it operates the valve. Is this correct? I can't find a loose vacuum pipe it could connect to.
Request for help.
Anyone in the Midlands with a spring compressor they're prepared to lend me in exchange for some beer vouchers?
I'm changing the lower control arms on a "94" SL320 R129
Thanking you all in advance.
1994 M104 I've managed to overfill my engine oil M104 engine by about 1/2 ltr (early 104 engines were 7.5 ltrs I'm guessing this was a later 7ltr capacity) :doh:
Should I drain 1/2ltr out? or just let it burn off naturally? I've a long trip to do on Friday
