hi everyone im Darran from Dorset uk . i have a 500sel 1990 . i have a few problems , most i am solving . my main problem is the speed idle control/relay . i have no idea where it is .!! i seem to be having a hard time trying to figure it out i have no manual at all . so far the problems i have are brake calipers need a new seals . kit ordered for that .
manifolds need replacing no problems there .
on the mot fail sheet it says lower arms are basicly bent , been to a few parts shops and they keep trying to sell me wishbones . The problem i have there is the price they quote and the price quoted from a garage is different by £100 lower arms are not the main problem as i can take to my usual garage and he will replace . but together we have no idea where the speed idle control or relay is .! Can anyone help me out ??
