1980 Mercedes 300td wagon

1980 Mercedes Benz 300-TD. $3900.00 This is a great running and driving, classic and hard to find Mercedes Benz diesel wagon. 136,000mi on the odometer looks to be original mileage. It is the 5 cyl. Diesel with 4 speed auto trans, it gets 26mpg. Power steering, Power breaks, Power windows, factory AM-FM cassette, 4 seasons heat and air (air doesn't work), 4 wheel independent suspension with the SLS rear suspension that has been freshly serviced, including new "air spheres" and rebuilt valve body, new Michelin radials and tinted windows. The car has a nice straight, solid body with no rust; let me say that again, this car has no rust. I think it has had one complete repaint to original color at some point in its life long before I got it. The original interior is in good shape but does have some wear in the carpets and some cracks in the upholstery. This is a nice original car in really great shape and from 20 feet back it looks almost new but on close inspection it bears the patina of a 33 year old car. As with most older cars it has a few things that need fixing, dash lights, rear window wiper, rear window defroster, it leaks a little oil, the stereo speakers snap, crackle and pop, the auto antenna doesn't work. Probably the biggest thing is the AC doesn't work, it's all there, just doesn't work. Don't expect it to drive like a brand new Mercedes, this car doesn't have auto park or accident avoidance, you are required to perform those tasks in a car of this age, but it really does drive like a new 1980 300-TD.

It is the heart of the climate control system. If it's bad or not working, you get nothing. It was a significant weak point for models of this vintage, and a design that was horrible in its best presentation.

No longer available from Mercedes, only as an aftermarket rebuild that can be upwards of $700-$1000, depending on where you buy it.

Look in the engine compartment on the passenger side for a large, black plastic "box" that has a bunch of electrical and vacuum lines going to it. On the bottom will be several hoses from the cooling system. Can't miss it.

Google "ACC servo Mercedes" and you'll learn far more than you ever wanted to know.

Ok now I know what your talking about. not it's not leaking coolant but it is bad and not working so your right there is no air or heat. The fan and from what I can tell the floor/bi-level/defrost doors are working. your right that cost to restore to original operation can be upwards of a grand. I was planning on doing a manual bypass because of the expense to restore to original. But would rather just sell the car and leave that to it's new owner. The biggest plus this car has going for it is the condition of the chassis and body. If someone wanted a good car to restore and keep this would be the one.
