I haven t been around for ages.
Two babies and an off the road roadster for the last couple of years.
It is a 1999 sl320 wdb1290642f177672 m112943 auto 722.6
The car is garaged but only gets a few runs a year. It has a new correct battery and is connected to a ctek5.0 trickle charger...
I have a 1999 r129 sl320 with a 722.6 gearbox.
The reverse lights' fuse and bulbs are fine.
The car does reverse but I need to * 'twiddle' the selector to get the reverse lights to come on.
I have learned this might indicate a bad gear recognition switch under the gear shifter part...
The roof gap adjustment - is that the adjustment of the front locking pins forward and back as detailed in the WIS instructions?
Also - I am replacing the garnish chrome moulding at the very front of the pano roof also , so if you had any more details on dismantling the front part I would be...
I recently acquired a panoramic roof.
The front seal is not attached correctly (45 in diagram) and I want to re attach it - is there a diy available for this? I have WIS/ASRA which has various diys but not for this front seal I don't think. I have been searching the internet for a while...
Someone who has correct original xenon headlamps on their sl for driving on the left (UK).
I need all the markings including numbers, letters and arrows from the front of your xenon lenses so that I can compare with a second hand
pair I am thnking of buying so that I can avoid buying the...
Hi, mine is 1999 sl320 and the two struts are designed to hold the boot lid up an inch or two when it is opened via the fob or the button at the back of the car. It is up to the driver to lift the boot lid and then it should stay propped in the fully extended position until it gets a little push...
I am changing my headlights from original halogen to the Mercedes xenon.
The headlamp units I am thinking of getting need new lenses.
Does anyone have part numbers for a pair Right Hand Drive Xenon lenses?
What does it entail changing just the lenses? How do they come - just as the glass...
Hi, I will get to the STAR machine soon. The left cat is the colder one but the left bank is more stable. Plugs are correct. O-Rings to which you refer, are they visible without pulling the fuel rail? HT leads checked and correct. Battery disconnect makes nil difference to anything.
Thank you ...
I have a 1999 sl320
My car will roll forward reversing up an incline until I touch the accelerator and the electrical signal tells the gearbox to hold the car from rolling forward. I don't have to keep my foot on it, just tip it with my foot.
I have a 722.6 gearbox.
Is that any help
Grober that is excellent information which will be used next week when I get the mounts loosened and re-torqued. Thank you.
Here are some temperature readings I got from my new infra red pyrometer: Degrees celsius
From cold start repeated checking of the temperature with pyrometer pointed at...
I'll get some live data...when I get to my local indie and get back on it. I have had various live data shown to me and the various experts can find nothing wrong eventhough all acknowledge something is wrong.
Grober's video shows the way my engine should be.
I wish it was.
One mechanic showed me the exact same symptoms in the same engine which was in another model I forget which. In engine bay it was exactly the same but virtually unnoticeable from inside the car, probably due to the bigger chassis....
I am sure it is running on all six at idle... as per various STAR diagnostics...If I unplug a coil then I know what running on 5 cylinders is..
Rpms are correct and as they should be.
Throttle body clean and its gasket replaced, air filters are good and nothing inhibiting intake...
