    Hi Jim,
    Hey, how are you, I just wanted to update you on the beautiful black W140 1993 300SE I bought on December 2nd. Sat for 2 months after I bought it, and sat in a field for ten months before that. I replaced the wiring harness (upper) with one from eBay that cost me all of $149, and then the cap & rotor which I got from rockauto that were supposed to be cheap AC Delco "closeouts" for $25 each (was on a low budget that week) but when they arrived they were brand new beautiful Bosch! I couldn't believe it. $60 for both cap and rotor, has anyone in the country gotten a better deal? Gave the car an oil change and new F8DC4's and she runs like a swiss watch. The car is just phenomenal. She's my seventh Benz. Runs perfectly, smooth as silk and purrs like an electric motor. I am going to enjoy my W140 ownership. Hope you are doing well Jayare. Have a great day!!

    Hi Bro,
    Can you help me with this??
    Hi,
    I have a rear right leaking strut. My car is S320 LWB with ADS but no SLS. What is the part number for this shock/ dumper and is it the same whether the car has SLS or not?? I have read a lot on all the mods one can do to make the car use normal struts but I want to keep my vehicle as close to OEM as possible.

    hello brother,

    I am sorry I haven't returned your call. I was a little sick the other night when you called. I saw that I had missed your call the next morning. We are having some domestic trouble here with my new grandsons mother. We have been a little stressed out for a few days due to it all. My apologies if I seemed rude.
    I have one quick question regarding MB. How do I replace the upper antenna grommet? I bought a new upper portion and wasnt sure if i have to remove the lower half to install the upper etc. Please advise. TKs Jim. I will be working on the 190 most of the day tomm. Please do call if you get a chance.

    hi. I was reading through the fuel mixture diy thread and read that you were having hot start problems. I have the similar issue on my 92 300te. Starts fine cold. Once it gets hot it has trouble idling and shutters sometimes stalls. I've done a tune up cap, wires, plug, rotor. Still persists. What did you end up doing to solve your problem. Thanks in advance, Pete.

    Hello,
    I saw that link for the DIY for the power steering filter. Is there more to that? I just got my Mercedes at a car auction, and its a beautiful thing minus the power steering. The previous owner took extremely good care of the car. I have replaced the brakes, tires, lights, fuses, all basic things, but I have no idea how to work with a Mercedes/Power Steering.

    My father is a mechanic, so I have good history on DIY, but this car is different from the average "mainstream cars."

    Power steering does leak, a lot. Is there a step by step with photos somewhere that can guide me on how to do it? I rather learn myself than have someone do it. I cannot determine where the leak is coming from yet. Any advice will help. Thanks.
