    1990 200 Carb ABS dead but warning light only on with lights

    This is odd. The ABS is not working, but the ABS light goes out when started and will only light up when the side/head lamps are on!!! Is this some sort of MB clue as to what might be wrong? All opinions gratefully received. Peter

    Pierburg Carb

    Just in the process of stripping this carb down as it has been spewing out fuel when really cold. So rather than just strip down / clean / put back together I thought why not refurb it with an overhaul kit, so.............anyone have the Part Number for this item? Many thanks in advance.
