Just bought a new complete set of front bumper chromes for my second generation W126.
Price: £158. This is cheaper than some used pieces on ebay, and much cheaper than the £500 or so at the main dealers.
The seller is classiceuroparts.com. They have parts for various German classics...
upon removing the headlamp wiper arms on my 500SEL, I tried to remove the washer jets that are built in (??) to the wiper arm and some of it kind of snapped.... could anybody please confirm that this part can just be swapped out, or do I have to purchase a whole new (expensive)...
I'm looking for recommendations on suspension parts for my W126 500SEL please?
I'm looking for a slight drop too... was thinking of stock shocks (buying new of course) along with H&R springs? Which shocks should I go with? OEM from the dealer? or other?

The other day, when I'd been travelling some distance, on pulling off from a standstill the 'box stayed in low gear until about 3500 revs, despite relatively modest boot applied - sounded like it was in first (switch was in S mode at the time, so it would've used 1st). Checked the fluid level...
I need to fit a new alarm and immobiliser to my 1991 W126 300SE.
My copy of WIS does not have wiring diagrams. Does anyone know where I can get a wiring diagram showing the functions of the existing wiring?
I'm after a detacheable towbar for either my 1991 Mercedes 500 SEC or 1990 300 SEL, both are the W126 model.
Anyone help on that-please? Any parts you might have let me know as these are my daily motors.

Anyone have the setting angles handy for the W126? Replaced the brake rod joints, and that made the tracking a bit wrong, so I thought I'd check the caster/camber etc. before resetting the tracking.
 or whatever you want to call it. The one that goes backwards from the track arm to...
On Sunday, it was nastily warm and so I was using the aircon. On arriving in town and parking up in the supermarket, noticed the temp gauge sitting higher than normal, not up to the red, but about 20° warmer than normal.

A Period 1980s, Clarion Stack Stereo System (G-501) with a pair of Original Clarion Speakers!
As I'm sure you know, this would look awesome in a W126 and I've also seen them in W124, W201s and a whole host of other high end cars of the period! Can't even imagine how expensive...
My daily driver is a 1991 W126 300SE and the one thing I miss is cruise control. To buy all the individual components from Mercedes would probably cost half the value of the car, if they are all still available.
Has anyone fitted an aftermarket cruise control kit to a W126? If so, which one...
After giving up the search for a black on black 560 SEL, I finally bagged a W126 of some description, albeit a 500SEC!
