Hi all.

I was a 80's diesel driver for many years but had to retire my '85 300TD a few months ago. Just picked up a 2003 W210 wagon that's pretty clean with a few problems. Outside temperature gauge is showing a constant 131 degrees so I'm guessing I need to change the sensor which I've located. Car is missing the bumper inserts next to the fog lights. The gear selector and clock window are dark. Is that a light bulb problem? The W/S switch seems to be broken and the +/- drive selector don't seems to change gears. Does this mean the selector assembly needs to be redone? Car seems to drive very smoothly, except shift speeds seem a little higher than my 2004 XC70. Might be the W/s problem. Hoping to get a lot of advice on repairing these.

Bob W.
