RE: 300 sdl 87 seat spring front driver
Do you have an MB dismantler fairly close by?
The L/F seat cushion on my non-MB (Volvo) was pretty much worn out & the foam had compressed after so many miles. I went to the scrap yard and was able to obtain a cushion replacement from the Right front of a newer similar car (thought it would have had less use).
It was easy to unplug the electrics, remove my drivers' seat & take it to the upholstery shop. There the leather was removed, cushion replaced, seat heat grids rewired etc, I was able to pick up the repaired seat the next morning & reinstall it.
My 2 cents, MBL
