Wiring loom - insulation falling off, water leak, oil leak
Help - Just been looking into a small oil leak and small water leak on my 1992 W124 E320.
While looking for the leak I moved some wiring at the front of the engine bay (after removing the black plastic cover on the front of the engine - behind the radiator fan). I guess this is the biodegradable wiring look?? Think it must be as it crumbled in my hands!!!
Has anybody changed this loom or could you recommend a W124 specialist in my area - I live just outside Pontefract in West Yorkshire (UK). I've used Mercedes Wakefield, Leeds and Doncaster with a newer Merc I had but Iâ€™m not that impressed. I would rather have an enthusiast / specialist. It's a really good car, Iâ€™m the second owner from new and it's done 83k.
Does anybody know the part number for the engine wiring loom?
Back to the oil leak, looking at the car from the front it could be coming from the front left of the engine (under the exhaust manifold). Any ideas?? Just serviced and now running synthetic oil (didnâ€™t notice leak before service, but had it serviced soon after buying)
Water Leak - Water could be coming from the front left of the engine?? Any ideas?
Iâ€™m not sure how much oil or water itâ€™s using yet, it's just been serviced and had the water/antifreeze changed (not sure if the water problem could be down to the new antifreeze finding a leak?? the system was flushed and filled as recommended with mb antifreeze.)
There isnâ€™t any water in the oil or oil in the water. It was running like a dream before I touched the engine wiring (used cruise all the time). Just going back out now to temp tape up the wiring and reconnect.
Any thought would help.
Many thanks. Simon.
