w111 280 se 3.5 conv parts reqd

Hi All,

I am trying to track down a speedo cable, two good condition turn signals and a new engine temperature sensor (the one that activates the radiator fan).

Any help greatly appreciated.

Go to the dealer and order them or call the Classic Center.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

I avoid the dealer - much more expensive than "out in town." Try Napa Autoparts - the temp sensor is easy to find, and cheap. I bought mine from adsitco(dot)com for about $15. Speedo cables can be had at speedo shops, or from a bunch of places.

When I first got into the guts of my 108, I did a general google search for parts and found a ton of places. Autohaus(dot)com is also a good place to start.

Are you looking for the big fog light looking turn signals? I probably have a pair out in my garage.
