Hello just signed up at Benzworld.org
Just purchased a 1985 silver 190D 5spd. with 180k on it.
Pretty clean car, still has all the accessories,tool kit,jack,spare,owners manuals, factory radio a three ring binder of all the maintenance records.
I bought it for my commuter, going to start running 120 miles one way for work. So stoked to find the 5 speed.
Normal things don't work
A/C not working
wiper doesnt work
tach doesn't work
everything else works and is solid. All windows, sunroof,door locks all in good working order.
I will pound through the forums to help me zone in on the most common fixes for these issues.
My first MB diesel in 15 years, but not my first ever.
My first car was a 1959 190db that I was brought home from the hospital in as a baby,in 1973 (I think that's where the diesel fumes got into my blood.)
1984 190d auto
and now this 190d 5spd
looking forward to dialing in all the issues and enjoying the fuel economy.
