    W203 Folding Mirrors - All Noise, No Action

    Hi Mark, thanks for the swift reply. As I said, you can hear both motors, but the cog mechanism doesn’t move. I suspect it might be seized both sides?

    W203 Folding Mirrors - All Noise, No Action

    Evening all, Wednesday this week was a momentous occasion- my lad bought his first Mercedes- a late 2005 C180K Classic. Yes, I’m biased, but it’s in really good nick, bar one or two niggly faults. It has electric mirrors which also fold, except they don’t. When you press the fold button, or...

    500SL R129 - Still Immobilised...

    Hi there, I posted last year about my poorly SL - it's a 1990 with the MBSS and UK immobiliser. I've still got the non-starting issue with it. About time I got it sorted for summer! Basically- I think the immobiliser has its knickers in a twist as the engine will turn over but won't start. The...

    R129 1991 500SL Turns Over But Will not Fire

    Right, Just waved Green Flag goodbye. We've got a bit further. In short, if you spray Easy Start into the fuel inlet on top of the engine underneath the filters, it starts. So there is a spark. There is a quarter of a tank of fuel so its not fuelling. The remote central locking still does...

    R129 1991 500SL Turns Over But Will not Fire

    Locking / unlocking manually works, but only the door the key is in. The vacuum system does not unlock everything / central locking. Is there a stick for this code reader? And where is the connector? Is it near the fuses or over near the ECUs? Thanks for your help with this Richard - much...

    R129 1991 500SL Turns Over But Will not Fire

    Haven't got anything to read them with. OK, so tonight, I have: - bought contact cleaner; - removed and cleaned the connectors off both the black and white boxes adjacent to the vacuum pump in the boot. Sadly, no good. Richard also mentioned in another thread pulling fuse 5 and trying to...

    R129 1991 500SL Turns Over But Will not Fire

    Hi Richard - no, its OEM with the green and red lights in the doors and bootlid button. What is does do is kill the fuel pumps, as I don't hear them pressurizing when I turn the key, nothing.

    R129 1991 500SL Turns Over But Will not Fire

    Hi there Been a while! I hope everyone is well? I've got a problem with my SL - I suspect it is immobiliser related but hope someone can offer me some advice. I went to start my car earlier and as it has been a while, I let the immobiliser kick in so the engine would turn and not fire. I...

    SL500 (R129) Wheels refurbed

    Super, cheers Mike. To be honest, I've got the original alloys and a local tyre fitter, so I reckon I could knock a bit off that by taking the wheels over. Lovely looking car there sir! Cheers Greg

    My hood window split

    OK, thanks mate. Only ask because I will need a new rear section on mine (just put it back on the road after just over a year SORN, God, its good to be back in an SL)

    My hood window split

    So Bill, was it just 3 new windows, or a complete rear section? I only ask because mine needs a new rear section, and £395 sounds like a steal!

    R129 misfire

    Common problem on the M119 engine. Later distributor caps have better seals (I am told) and so reduce this particular issue. Also, if you ever need to replace them, get the BOSCH part rather than going to the stealer for the MB part - they are one and the same save an MB badge and an MB part...
