cruise control issue

hi all. this is my first time asking about my 230e 1985 w123.

so i got onto the motorway the other day and tried to use my cruise control.

but it started to surge forward and back as if i were pressing the throttle on and off?

does anyone know what this could be?

cheers

Andy

That sounds like it could be the actuator. I've fixed these by opening them up, cleaning the swiper tracks of dirt and corrosion, and then applying dielectric grease

You might want to head over to the W123 section under Sedans. Also please complete your profile.
