Hi every one my name is Henry, I live in Fremantle Western Australia and I own a 1983 380 SE with 214,000 km on the clock. It is gold in colour and has original cloth trim in striped dark brown, this is quite unusual compared to all other Mercs of that era. My car has all the usual extras and I have spent a good amount of money refurbing all the things that go wrong with a 26 year old mercedes. My last mechanical task is to find out where a vibration is coming from when I accelerate. It seem that it comes from the rear and at low acceleration or when I have just turned a corner and power on. it disapears when I reach approx 30-40kph and doesnt happen all the time. I am told that it could be the rear CV joints?. If anyone has had the same problem please let me know. I am also chasing a sun roof seal kit as I will need to do some work on the sun roof this summer. I am told that sunroofs are problamatic and a pain to work on, do Webasto agents carry out rekitting of Merc roofs. Well thats all for now and thanks for listening.
