    The master rectangular head ignition key should unlock everything. There is also a valet key, oval head that should unlock all but the trunk and glove box. You ordered a key from Mercedes for your VIN and it will only operate the ignition?
    Edit: April 4 I just checked an '81 280SL parts car. It requires two keys. Could be the ignition has been changed in this one because the keys are totally different designs.

    I see you have a 1984 280SL, I too have a gray market model and have a problem with the keys. The serial number gets me an ignition key but the trunk. both doors and glove box locks do not work. Did the Euro models require two keys?

    It is Bosch CIS (K-Jet) mechanical FI. All 107s from '76-'85 have it. Parts to the system can be VIN specific so they don't interchange all the time. There is an overview and other info on it in the EGv107.

    Hello Rowdie,

    How can I tell what type of fuel injection system my 1980 450 SL has? Is there a breakdown of the VIN number that can tell me?

    Hello Rowdie A month ago you sent me some great photos of the location of my fuel pump relay behind the glove box. I was able to order a new fuel pump relay and change it out. The 1986 500SL runs great now. Many Thanks. I am now working on getting the cruise control working and would like to know if you have additional pics of the location of the Cruise control unit part number 003-545-09-32.
    Many Thanks ....... Gord

    I didn't post anything yet because I don't want to jinx myself, but I have an agreement with the seller on the 79. I am suppose to take him the cash tomorrow. When I give you the details you will be very proud of me. Feel free to call me at (281) 881-0860 and I'll fill you in.
