A W126 owner from Australia
G'day to all,
As my username suggests, we have a S-class Mercedes in our family. We are the second owners of this vehicle. The car was owned by a doctor from 1984 to 1988 then my father purchased it. The vehicle has never been crashed, is always kept in a garage and has become a 'Sunday car' in recent years. Therefore the vehicle appears to be in fantastic original condition both inside and out (several years ago it was stripped to bare metal and painted by an authorised Mercedes-Benz repairer in the same factory "Champagne" colour).
However the car is showing signs of mechanical tiredness. Hence I found this forum with the aim to learn what is involved in repairing / replacing / reconditioning parts of the drivetrain. The first item on the agenda is to improve the handling as the vehicle tends to wander rather than tracking straight.
I suspect there are numerous W126 experts on this forum and look forward to communicating with them.
