Hi from St Albans
I've had my 1996 C36 since 2000 (2nd owner) and have always loved it. Amazing engine.
She's a bit beaten up mainly due to other drivers hitting her whilst parked and I am in the process of putting her back together again but know next to nothing about this beast of a car as my friends call her because anyone who has ever owned a C36 will know what I mean.
I've come back to this web site time and again as a guest and nearly always found what I need to get things done, repairing the wiper system when it stuck, overhauling the air con motor (getting underneath the glove compartment to get to the motor required a certain amount of bending in a way I haven't experienced in years) so I thought it about time to register and say hello to you all.
And on a final note, if anyone knows how to change the driver side indicator (not the main indicator lights but those found on the side of the car) as I am completely baffled. It is part number A 124 820 23 21 I think.
Nevermind, easy job! Trouble was mercedes supplied not only the repeater but the cable so I assumed some internal work under the bonnet was needed. No so thankfully after I managed to seperate the repeater from the cable simply jigged the original out and replaced. Piece o cake! NEXT.... Any tips on stone chip repair and the awful rust that has appeared around the boot lock and licence plate lip (also on the boot)?
