Had a W208 for the last 10 years completely trouble free apart from a crank sensor. Fixed by reading this forum of course.
Now have a second Mercedes as a project car. May have bitten off more than I can chew. Its an SL320 1993 with immaculate body but has needed lots of TLC.
Replaced Heat transfer radiator in Oil cooler housing. Replaced noisy belt tensioner pulley and other little oily bits under the bonnet (Hood of course !).
Recovered leather seats front and back so getting there. Still no ambient temperature showing on the dash though (feel free to to advise). Have posted a soft top problem that is beating me, so looking forward to hearing from people who know what they are doing, unlike us fiddlers..
All the best and thanks for all of your combined knowlege.
