I own a 2005 chrysler 300c and a 74' Porsche 911. I bought a 1991 sl500 from overseas (Japan) badged as and SL55 AMG. I have my doubts. Spring is back so it's out of the garage and then back in (alternator blew) now i'm trying to replace it.

I like German engineering yet changing this unit which traditionally is fairly simple is full of removing several other things before i can take out the second bolt. Finding a decent service manual turned into a quest. Finally got one online from England however im having issues trying to unpack it as it requires an install disk to be made over 7 gig. Anyhow all I want to know is how to adjust the tension on the tensioner pulley so I can pull off the belt and remove the alternator. I could probably figure it out but I would rather see if somone has already done it.

Hey Guys,

I'm a new member as well but, more so for information. We have 560 SEL that was the Owner of the Company had and she has just recently passed away so it's become a company vehicle and I must say what a great ride....

Just thought I'd join and look around for information

Random top problem!

Fairly new member:

I've been here since November. This is my second post.

I own a 1998 sl500 a 2000 ML 320 and a few other cars (not Mercedes). I've been looking at the r129 threads and have also lost a left front signal light which unfortunatley scratched the paint.

I've looked for info on the top and have not found what I'm looking for yet. My problem is that the top works fine most of the time but ocasionally the top button and the roll bar switch will light up and the windows will not roll up or down nor will the roll bar work and the up and down effect (I think it's called the hall effect) of the windows when you open or close the doors does not occur. I'll leave the car parked for awhile and when I get back to the car the problem will seem to have dissapeared. I've had the car checked with my mechanic and his diagnoses was a "hall effect sensor" I purchased one from dealer and when the mechanic went to install the part there was no place to install it. I'm wondering what could be causing the problem? Any ideas? Has anybody had a similar problem?

Apart from that both cars are really fun to drive!
