    W124 230TE ignition coil help needed

    Need some help as I replaced the coil on my W124 230 TE year 1986 but did not mark all the wires. Is there someone who has a similar coil that can check where these connect or else send me a photo of their coil? Thanks all.

    My W123 230TE

    The W123 series was my first exposure to Mercedes. We have had one all throughout my upbringing. I had a 280CE coupe until a few years back.. Lord knows what possessed me to sell it... Space was the reason at the time I recall, but I really miss it. It was a lovely 59K mile example... I...

    W123 230te

    Hi all. First post here! I currently drive a 280ce but am looking to change to a more practical 230TE due to having a baby. I've test driven one but was a bit suprised about how bouncy the ride was compared to the CE. Also, the front seats were much less comfortable. Is this due to worn shocks...

    Air Filter 230TE 124

    Good evening, I've been looking around online and can't seem to find an air filter for a 92 model 230TE. They all seem to cut off around 1988. I'm guessing that this is because of the change over from carburettor to injection. Can anyone tell me where I need to look? Thanks.
