RE: 1971 220 d

For the antenna cable:
Remove the rear seat. Just pull up from the front side and throw it out. The back rest is fastened with 4 bolts if i remember right... Two bolts are at the lower front part, two are in trunk at the upper part (not sure).
There is a hole at left/right side, you'll find it ;).

Welding:
You can weld a new part, trunk lid is regular steel. The heat can deform the lid of course, so be careful and weld slowly and cool down the metal right when welded.

RE: 1971 220 d

does the starter solenoid click when you turn the key?.. thats more likely to be knackered than the starter motor in my experience

RE: 1971 220 d

There might be some shit in solenoid. Try to hit the solenoid with plastic hammer. Use medium strenght: "Knock knock" is too light, "BANG BANG" is too hard. [:D]

Try to put some more cables to the battery. Use jump-start(?) cables.
-Connect one or to between battery minus and engine block, one between battery minus and starters body.

If it still doesn't work, try to connect a wire between starter + and solenoid +. Should start, or at least the solenoid should click.

What's so hard about using every allen wrench you have until one fits?
