Introduction 68 220D

Introducing my 1968 220D W115, been in my garage for 4-years and now I'm finally getting around to it. A first-class rebuild of the motor just before I bought it, but the manual 4-speed needs help--it won't downshift into 2nd, so I assume the synchros are bad and I need a rebuild. All the rubber is deteriorating, but almost no rust and original interior in good shape!

A question: front Teves type disc caliper piston wont return on its own, heats the heck out of the disc: anyone have an easy fix or is this time for a rebuild.

Thanks to all.

Welcome to Benzworld, with a sticky caliper piston it is time for a rebuild.

for sticky calipers , poke a hole in dust boot , spray some w40 , or put some brake fluid with oil can [ NO OIL ] work caliper in and out , using a shim bett rotor and piston , so it does not pop out , the piston will free up .later on , watch for brake fluid leak , if so , time to do a reseal job .
