    240td 1980 vacuum control valve and auto problems

    I hope this is the right forum. My oldish 240td (120k kms total from new and my car from new) has an auto box that slips. Most likely it is due to a service by a Bosch injection pump outfit that doesn't understand the intricacies of the vacuum control system. I am not sure what all the pipes...

    240TD autobox and vacuum diagram

    From this VIN WDB12318312013266 can someone tell me which autobox is fitted? It has the OM616 engine. The core problem is adjusting the vacuum for the auto shift but I can't find a vacuum diagram which matches exactly what I have. Anyone have one by chance? thanks for any help or pointers

    Rear end clonking 240td

    1981 240td with 120k kms from new. When driving slowly over bumpy and not so bumpy ground (like my driveway exit) I have a loud clonk from the rear (estate car btw). It is not a regular knocking either. I have checked everything I can move by hand and stripped and checked the self-leveling...

    240td accelerator linkage adjustment

    1981 240td automatic with the auto box 'flaring' between some gears. Before I go into the dianostics, I need to make sure the accelerator is adjusted correctly but I can find no diagrams showing my engine! I know that if is is too long or too short, gear shifts occur at the wrong time...

    w123 240td lopsided

    The car has self levelling suspension which works fine and I have changed the spheres. It appear to a little lopsided at the rear. It has 75k miles from new so it is not really worn and has not had heavy loads. So, is this a spring issue, a hydraulic ram issue or is there some other thing that...

    My W123 240TD Project

    I can't post in the 'Project' section, apparently... I've been working on this, on and off (mostly off) for the past few months. It was an MB demonstrator until the P.O. bought it at 14 months old in 1984. He kept on top of corrosion and underbody protection quite well but not so some of the...

    240td suspension spheres

    I am going to change the rear suspension spheres on the self-levveling suspension. Does anyone know the best place to buy these in the UK? I assume I drain the fluid or at least take off pressure, unbolt the old ones, bolt in the new ones, replace the fluid and bingo! Is it any more complicated...

    240td auto box won't change up

    240td - 120k kms from new and never a problem. Suddenly it won't change up to top gear as it used to. The fluid level is correct and the fluid is in good condition. Any clues? I have not taken it for a long drive to see if it is heat related since I didn't want to get too far from home.
