    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...

    Hi Guys Just a quick one, (I hope). I've bought a used vacuum pump to replace mine as I'm having some locking issues with the boot. Q. Does the replacement unit need to be programmed in or can I simply swap over the air and two electrical connectors? Cheers :bannana:

    240TD autobox and vacuum diagram

    Vacuum system W126

    Trying to work out the vacuum on the W126. Looks like the central locking, unlike on the W123, is fed from a pump in the boot. However, there are still several vacuum connections in the engine bay - I know one of them is headlight aim, but that is not working - so I suspect leaks in the...
