New Owner of 1989 260E


Dave from New Hampshire and I am the proud owner of a 1989 Mercedes 260E. Learning a lot about this car in a short amount of time. Today's project is to remove door panel on drivers side to locate the short in the power window. My 260E is a little cold to start so I have been running injector cleaner through it for the past couple of days. I am impressed with the power and ride of this car. The odometer stopped working this past spring at 92,000. It was in storage for the past 8 years and just taken out this past spring. So far I have replace the rear brakes and pads and one caliper. I am fortunate to be able to bring my own parts to my mechanic (who is also my nephew) Brake repair was $270. I will be changing all of the fluids on Monday and replacing the fuel filter. Hoping this will take care of the cold starting. It's not too bad but should just fire right up. That's it for now... anyone have any tips for me, I would appreciate it.
