W126 Help Australia

Hi Everyone,

Its really very good to join a new forum with heap of information, I have just bought a 1982 W126 280SE very cheaply but comes with alot of defects as you can imagine and I was just wondering if anyone could give me any help/guidance on the problems below:

1 - Suspension low at reaer
2 - At highway speed a loud whining noise
3 - Alot of knocking when going over bumps
4 - Cruise Control not holding speed but will accelerate with lever but just not holiding
5 - Not able to get 1st Gear
6 - Drivers window slow
7 - AC pump seems loud, could this be the belt?
8 - Gearbox dipstick plastic cap has melted and is very brittle
9 - Central locking not working
10 - Parking Brake light staying on
11 - Brake light staying on
12 - After 40 minutes of driving, keeps cutting out and can only restart by putting a bit of pressure on the gas pedal while turning over
13 - Fuel pump sometimes staying on after car is turned off
14 - Odometer not working

Any help would be much appreciated

Kind Regards
