    1989 230E W124 Saloon

    Hi All, Selling my Father's 1989 W124 230E Saloon as he is no longer able to drive it due to health reasons. He's the second owner and bought the car in 1994, so has owned it for 29 years. The mileage when he bought it was 26315 (still have the original bill of sale). At some point between 2005...

    W124 instrument cluster - LED bulbs?

    True, though the second link I posted says 501/504 so I assumed it would be suitable for both. I'm hoping somebody here has upgraded theirs and can confirm which ones they used...

    W124 instrument cluster - LED bulbs?

    Can't see how to edit my above post. That link actually says at the bottom that it's not suitable for German cars without a resistor. How about these -...

    W124 instrument cluster - LED bulbs?

    Hi guys, So the instrument cluster stopped illuminating on our W124 a few days ago. I didn't think it was the bulbs as I just replaced those 3 years ago. Pulled the cluster out yesterday and sure enough the metal contact behind the dimmer had cracked. Soldered it back up and all good. However...

    W124 door handle sticking out

    Thanks, I managed to get hold of a Haynes manual and you're absolutely right. I slid the handle out and refit so it would pull and retract how it should. I thought the grub screw might be loose also but it wouldn't seem to turn in either direction. For now I've tapped the smaller part of the...

    W124 door handle sticking out

    Hi guys, Our rear door handle on the W124 saloon is sticking out... it's been a bit sticky recently but now when trying to push it in it just springs right out. The little metal bit on the rear end slides forwards towards the front of the car and pops out - is that normal or should it be...

    W124 interior light/seat belt warning light

    Looks like it was number 2 on the list. I got a spare interior light, connected it up and everything working as it should.

    W124 interior light/seat belt warning light

    Hi, I gave our W124 in to sort out a couple of problems that I hadn't got round to looking at myself - the drivers window operation was reversed (up went down and vice versa), and also the passenger door wouldn't lock/unlock with the key. Both have been sorted and picked the car up last night...

    W124 indicators not clicking inside

    Ok great, I was worried the new relay was on it's way out already. I think we can live with no clicks for now, probably look to get a replacement cluster soon anyway.

    W124 indicators not clicking inside

    Hi guys, Just recently the indicators have stopped clicking inside the cabin when flicking up or down. They still flash and externally are still working. I had this problem last year and from memory I think that they weren't flashing either, so I replaced the relay with a new one from...

    W124 kick panel

    No yours looks exactly the same as mine, except yours is black and mine is red. Didn't get much of a chance to have a look at the source of the leak over the weekend. On Saturday it was freezing cold but I managed to remove the scuttle under the wiper mechanism and it didn't seem blocked. I...

    W124 electric window switch reverse operation

    Hi guys, Had some work done on the car recently (1989 saloon) which involved taking bits apart including the door cards and mechanisms. When put back together it seems that the drivers window switch is reversed so now it goes up when down is pressed and vice versa. Is it a difficult job to...

    W124 kick panel

    I'm pretty sure there should be something there - as you can see in the picture on my first post it's just exposed bodywork when you look at it. I doubt it should be like that by design! It also looks like there's grooves where something clips in. Yes I think I put 2 & 2 together and got 5...
