My 300SL has developed a soft-top problem and I would be grateful for
some advice as to how I can diagnose / fix the problem.
The car has been in my garage with the roof up for the past month
(been away on holiday). Yesterday, I decided to give her a wash and go for a run. As usual...
The test of the practicality of the CLS as a family car was always going to be put to the test in our annual summer hols trip into Europe. With roofbox on (necessary evil) we cruised across to France, then Italy and back. It racked up 2,300 miles in 2 weeks and it didn't miss a beat. It happily...

if u can help and have something suitable if u can take out and fit the engine and...
My friends car is being completely renovated. It is done. It looks beautiful.... Chassis up. Really chuffed.
They broke the indicator stalk while working on the car!!!
Obviously being a classic parts are going to be harder to get hold of - but we cant find a...
I got my W126 300 SE 1987 yesterday bit of a project,
Nice base car with only 60k on the clock so I'm trying to put back to her former glory to enjoy.
Question is, the car has 4 different tyres on it, does anyone know what the original tyres were for this car? Brand, size, etc
This looks like it could be a very good buy for the right person, unusually high spec too, and is that a period Becker I see?

Collected yesterday a 1995 E300TD estate that I hope is going to do us for a good 100k miles. VIN is WDB1241912F319174.
I gather it has a catalyst in the exhaust system. I have no intention of donning an anorak, but I'm curious about the changes MB made during the last year of production...
Hi, sorry im new here and have just brought a 300ce after wanting one for ages, as with most cars 24 years old i have a few problems(though with a MB i should say far less than another make!) One problem that im not sure of is when driving along through town i can here a clinking metal noise...
Hi, I have been looking around for a nice clean 300 D saloon W124 model. Ideally I was hoping to find a pre 24 valve model, but I would be happy with anything as long as the car and especially the body work is in good shape.
I had a 1988 one back in the early 90s and I covered nearly 250K...
While I wait for my exhaust and OVP to arrive, I've been hunting down badges but cannot find a rear tailgate "4matic" or "300TE" badge for my 1992 W124 in the correct font. Does anyone have any ideas please?
I have the opportunity to purchase a 300 ce gold paintwork with cream leather, not sure of age or mileage yet , it is sitting on a neighbours drive and has been for more than 5 years, he is asking £500 as he feels that the supposed private plate has a value of £200.
I havent tinkered with old...
Recently purchased my first Mercedes, I love older cars as I enjoy the rarity and having something different from the average joe.
I also like working on cars myself and after playing with old Hondas the Mercedes makes a nice change.
Decent pics to follow but i'll put a couple up as a...
