29 years old and the proud owner of a 300te 4matic! But needing some help!
Hello Mercedes Gurus of the world, I need help!!
We just purchased a 1992 Mercede 300te 4matic with 113,000 miles, in perfect body and interior condition for $1,400 bucks. Car is fully loaded, 1 owner, leather interior, sun roof, new tires, the works! We love the way the car looks and drives.....but is has needed work.
We drove it from the previous owners house straight to Sears at 50 miles an hour for a new tie rod and alignment. No biggie.... They let us know at Sears that we had horrible brakes (yeah new that) and we had two leaking brake lines in the rear.
We have the car home and realize that we have no rear brakes at all. Rotors are so rusted out they have not been used in a long period of time. And no 4matic as well.
Would having no rear brakes cause me to lose the 4matic? If not what else could be my problem with the 4matic? Also my dad is helping me work on the car and in that same area is a broken piece of linkage, any ideas what this piece does??? I know that is very vague...but we have looked in different service manuals and no luck!
Thank you for any help!!
