Legally, im wasting my time fixing the car. I turned in the tags today, insurance is cancelled and i sadly must do this. spare me the questions in this thread it is what it is. so here we go.
MODEL: S420 LWB
For the next 2-3 weeks, i NEED to at least be able to start the car, and drive it out of my driveway under its own power. this means anything attached to the car is fair game long as i can do that. lights, seats (otehr than driver), trim, doors, windows, etc can go bye bye...long as i can start the car, and shift it in reverse and steer it!
both drivers seats need leather refinishing, but all functions work.
tails are fully working, but not awesome...some cracks in the plastic from age.
passnger mirror is useless except for the mirror glass itself.
drivers mirror has bad rubber seal, but fully functional otherwise.
passenger rear window regulator
no becker radio and no cd changer. all other audio components are in tact and fully working
wipers on headlights....drivers as far as i know works, passnegers does not.
radiator is original from what i can tell. will update if i see otherwise.
interior rear view mirror is ghetto repaired.
drivers side door lock actuators not functional.
car has NO HEAT so dont ask about the heater control valve. but if you really want it...you have been warned.
door lock actuator for gas door not working.
shocks are normal ones, and are old. (1996)
1 year old: power steering pump, water pump, rear main seal, transmission seals, oil pan gasket. tires with full warranty at discount...which includes replacement certificates. none have been repaired either iirc. about 10000 miles on the tires (verifiable and fully transferrable)
Alternator is also a year old. Battery is just over a year old.
less than 3000 miles....motor mounts.
PSE pump works.
door assist pump works, BUT IT MIGHT need a time out screw adjusted. test on your car first tho, because i have a known bad switch that kept activating the pump so its been disabled for the past year to prevent burning out the motor. video soon to be posted showing it works.
cluster fully functional, but needs a bulb in the speedo around the 80mph area.
climate control unit fully funcitonal, but missing 2 horizontal pixels so OFF reads OII as an example.
maf is bosch oem and 1 year old.
all car body modules work. all ECU items work.
throttle body works. no asr codes.
i also have unopened, never used, brand new in package full set of front and rear akebono pads and aftermarket rotors.
in 3 weeks, efforts to remove the motor and transmission will be made. these items will be sold. i will drive the car hard and take video to show its smoothness, noises, etc. there are no odd noises, there are no jerking issues. the transmission has been serviced TWICE in the past 14 months due to leaks. TQ converter included. ill sell these items last, as a whole setup or sperated if preferred.
the wiring harness may not be sold, depending on any damages to it if any. at the time of engine removal, all that will be left of the car is the carcass and a full inventory of what i still have available will be posted and updated here.
