    W124 300te Rocker Cover

    Friends I had my 300te rocker cover media blasted and painted to match the bodywork. Very happy with that (at the time). The cover is made from Magnesium Alloy so when all cleaned up from the rubbery plastic coating that Mercedes use at the factory, it is very pitted. I primed it with an...

    Auto transmission fluid change -300TE

    I'm planning to service my transmission at home but have two queries before I start: 1) I'm told that MB has "approved/recommended" the use of fluids listed on sheet 236.14 for gearboxes 722.3 and 4.

    124 - 300te hunting at idle?

    Folks What colour would the plastic behind the chrome have been on my 300TE when new? It is a faded grey now. I am unsure if that is the original or if it would have been black. Either way it's need a freshen up. Any tips for reviving this please?

    Wanted: W124 300te Cruise Control?

    As above? Is it vacuum or cable operated please? Mine works occasionally but will stop when it feels like it or simply not engage. Could be a dirty switch on the stalk? But I figure if it cuts off when it should not then it is a vacuum or cable issue? Just looking for what to check please.

    If I wanted to purchase the above - which I might - where should I start looking does the Team think? Asked my friendly Main Dealer and if he could get one the cost would be astronomic, so need another source. :confused: Cheers Mike
