280CE vs. other W123: what interior interchanges?

Hey guys,

What interior components from W123s (mostly the more common sedans) interchange to the 280CE? Does the dash? The front seats? Console? Instrument cluster? General buttons?

I'm mostly after seats, seat springs, etc.

Thanks!

Some I could think of are: Dashboard (and all it's components), Meter panel, Steering wheel, Center Dash Console, Turn signal switch, Driver and Passenger Seats, Sunvisor, and some switches.

Hello, are you sure the driver and passenger seats are the same from other W123s? I've been looking for covers or repair kits and they're almost always identified differently from the other models.

Also, question about the cluster box. Does this thing interchange with gas or coupe models? Is there any way to change the bottom part out so it doesn't show the diesel lens?

Seats are different. Mercedes 2-door cars are going to have different front seats because the front seat needs to tilt forward. There is also a vacuum actuated latch on the front seats to prevent them from tilting while the car is in motion. If it's the same as a 114 coupe, the latch is released if a) door is open b) car is not running or c) rear passenger presses the release button located on the side of the seat. (located on b-piller interior in 114 coupe). Dash and instruments should be he same, center console is the same. Front carpets are the same. Inside mirror same, sunvisors different, outside mirrors different. I _think_ everything else in the interior is different.

What are you looking for? I see W123 coupes at the junkyard regularly. PM me if you need something...

The images including the glow plug thing slide out. They have individual part numbers and you can probably order whatever you want, or in the case of this, just black out the glow plug indicator. It's like a little strip of plastic that slides out.
