Kal El I live stateside in Virginia. Any idea where I can get Module N32/9? My usual sources dont have a clue.

Kal El Based on what youre saying, I got bad info. I was told on the LWB/long wheel base S320 I hav that I have SLS. Now I know its my shocks.

And Thanks, again for the info on my heater T. I had no idea about that but I promise it will be the next thing I look at.

Kal El I want to say Thanks to all of you for your help. You are a wealth of knowledge. Im trying to take care of the functional parts first and then the comfort features.

Im not really sure how I could help any of you but if I can, please drop me an email.

System description, fault finding, component layout for the mirrors and steering column is here. The module involved is N32/9, under the passenger floorboard:

STAR TekInfo Mirrors/column

Same here for the seats. Modules N32/1 and N32/2 under the seats:

STAR TekInfo Seats

The module (N57) in the trunk controls the windows, sunroof, and portions of the central locking, and is described here:

STAR TekInfo Comfort module

Wiring diagrams for the W140 are here. Directions on how to use them have been posted several times so I won't repeat them here:

anziani And let me add to MAVA's post. Yes, change the "Tee" but also the small hoses attached to it. In my '97 the Tee was indestructible but the hoses were all puffed and ready to let loose. As MAVA says, you have only a minute or two to shut the engine down after loosing the coolant. In fact pay attention to anything MAVA says. He is a "fountain" of knowledge along with 3-4 other members here.

MAVA Good day, and welcome to the forum.

97 S320 is not known to have engine wiring problems, but... your steering colum is tied to the outside mirror fuse, and I can tell you maybe upto 99, but my 98 had mirror wiring problems; The fuse would blow on adjusting the mirrors, so you may have this. This may be a reason for the colum is not working for you too...

No SLS on these 320s just plain shocks. To service the low-side of the AC is a tank of hydraulic fluid under the right drivers side black plastic cover. if you had SLS.

As newbie, have you changed your rear heater tee as you blow that tee on the road, and you have under a minute to stop that engine. Change the tee with a actual Mercedes brand tee, or Rein Tee(Rein makes the MB tee) - No used or ebay/craiglist/offerup/etc...

The tee's are good for safely upto 70k-80k miles after that you are in the danger zone for failure... Here is the tee:

Change this one too:

Then read my posts here... I'm looking for that California to New York reliability every day, and that what it takes....

All the best,

Martin
