Looking for a detailed Shop Manual

I am looking for a good shop manual that covers my 1979 280SL Euro car. Any insights are appreciated.

To my knowledge there is not one. You can use the online 107 manual http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r-c1...ompendium.html for suspension and other repairs. It only lists North American models but the chassis procedures are the same. The part numbers may be different. Chose the same model Year as yours.

Try to find an M110 engine manual. It too only covers North American models but the procedures would be the same. It will show emission controls which you probaly don't have.

Last there is the EPC where you can look up and compare part numbers. EPC-net Online It cost $75.00 per year. If you are computer literate check the last few pages of this thread. http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r-c1...nger-free.html It discusses a CD/DVD set which has access to the EPC
