Hello everyone, unfortunately I won't be able to contribute to anything here, but I will be asking questions & picking the brains of the mechanically minded who are kind enough to answer me. . . I have a 1982 MB 230E automatic, which I purchased a few weeks ago. It (she?) had only one previous owner, is green-gold & in apparently excellent condition.
It's my second MB ( I had a smaller one about 10 years ago which I foolishly traded in for an Hyndai Atoz -hated that car from the moment its tinny door first closed until it was written off by someone reversing along the highway !)
I love my old car, but there's that worrying grinding noise that I've been asking about in the other section of the forums. . .
I'm female, & I've been living in Cape Town, South Africa, for the past 13 years. I did Motor Mechanics for a few terms when I was at school, which seems to have done me no good at all; I used to be able to service an old Beetle years ago, but feel way out of my depth with the MB!
Thanks for accepting a mechanical imbecile like myself into the forum!
