MB electrical Manuals (ETMs) for sale
I was doing some basement cleaning this past weekend and discovered a box containing about a dozen official Mercedes Benz Electrical Troubleshootiing Manuals. Most are for model year 1981 passenger cars but a few are for 1980 passenger cars.
If you're not familiar with these manuals, they are a godsend of info include electrical schematics *by vehicle system* and component location pictures (photos) as well as written descriptions.
The 1980 ETM covers 240D, 300D/CD/TD, 300SD, 280E/CE, 280SE, 450SL/SLC, and 450SEL having a separate section for each.
The 1981 ETM covers 240D, 300D/CD/TD, 300SD, 280E/CE, 380SL/SLC, and 380SEL having a separate section for each.
The books are perfect bound in 11x8.5 format, about 3/4" thick and nearly all are in new condition. Some very minor shelf wear. One or two have a loose page.
An ebay seller in CA is currently listing an 80 with a BIN price of $75. (Search for 1980 Mercedes ETM)
I want $50 each for the ETMs and will accept only USPS money orders. No PayPal. I'd gladly pay that for an ETM that covers my 1988 124s and, in fact, I'll send you both an 80 and an 81 in exchange for a 124 ETM if you have one.
PM me if interested. First come, first served. When they're gone they're gone. No trick, no scam, if you want to see a sample schematic post here and I'll upload some pics.
My next posts will be ones to each forum that could benefit from these books.
