190 Diesel-junkie in Nashville - plus question forum help

Hey folks,
Good to see that there are so many other Mercedes lovers in the world. I'm particularly fond of the old body styles. I love the 190D that I'm in the process of rebuilding, but the 300 series are classy cars as well.... aren't they all?

I'll re-post this question in an appropriate forum (as soon as I can find it), but in the meantime if someone might point me there I'd appreciate it.

I'm pulling the rear differential on the 190D due to noise issues (probably to replace, but I'm hoping just to rebuild) and I'm having trouble finding the right Torx size for the axle bolts and the single front left mounting bolt of the final drive housing (i.e. diff casing).

Help? T50 almost fits, but maybe it's a T55? Thoughts? Experience? Anyone have any thoughts about how to get these beasts loose without melting or stripping something vital?

Thanks a bunch!
Ben

Welcome Ben!!

Which 190 are you talking about. We have the C-class model of the 201 chassis made between 1984-1993, but there are some 1950s models known as 170, 180 and 190s too, but have nothing to do with the C-class line.

The forums are organized according to Chassis models. I guess you have a 1980s 190D? That would be a W201 Chassis model.

Look along the forums for the Chassis models and you will find your car.

Thanks!

Yes I've got the W201 1985 190D. I'll start skimming the forums now that I know how to find the right posts. Thanks!
