    1996 SL320 Timing chain cover leak/gasket.

    I'd noticed a leak from this area sometime ago and tried a clean and sealant type fix to no avail, plus a fix article noted that it usually isn't the gasket but a poor interface generally see link. http://www.mercedes.gen.in/mercedes-r129-sl-320-m104-timing-cover-leak-alternative-fix/...

    R129 red oil - cambridgeshire

    I read a few more posts and that dipstick isn't used to measure the amount of fluids in the gearbox, apparently you have use a longer garage supplied stick is this true or? The (gearbox?)oil cooler is separate to gearbox, gasket or hose gives the bother, difficulty of fix or cost? P

    Project C43 W202

    Great read, especially noting you're learning as you go along plus not skimping on anything. As long as main platform not too rusty and no major cutting and welding you should be fine. Roll on 2018! P

    W124 Slow Idle speed

    Is it a bit lumpy on start up/going? If it was the cold start valve I'd assume you'd be cranking it over quite a bit before it would start, not entirely sure theres an adjustment. P

Firstly I had to remove plastic scuttle panel, then a further piece of plastic, allowed me access to said...

    Changing break pads- best place, price and brand?

    At two years old, keeping it within MBs network is important for most, however, at £300 they are taking the provebial, you can get online quotes, print off take in and ask them to match? Personally, I'd buy OEMS pads, take them to a good indie, still have service book/maintenance book stamped...
