Pinneford, check out the 107 section of this forum, and you will find all the info you will likely need, hardcopy manuals are not easy to come by but look in the "Stickied" sections - especially the "Encyclopedia Germanica" and you will see links for further info including a source for the manuals loaded onto a CD.

That said, 99% of what you will likely need has probably been covered on the forum.

Happy Motoring!!

You can find the Factory Manual here on EPC Startekinfo. Scroll down-I think it's on page 2 or 3.

116 engine.
yes the air regulator is sticking and needs a thorough clean up . Remove and put overnight in a descaling solution allowing all the crud to dissolve, the thermostat plate will operate full length bringing the RPMS down as the water temp rises.
just sorted out a friend's 450se .worked!
