    Not sure exactly what you mean here. Are you referring to the radio receiver antenna? That is probably plugged in to the back of the radio head unit. It should go via cable all the way to the trunk area of the car where the actual antenna sticks out (accessible from within the trunk) Hopefully...
  2. Transmission Flaring, stacked up-shifts, high rpm

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    I've been at it with the transmission of my 1980 300TD for months now and I can't get this problem fixed. The symptoms are all over the place which is making it hard to find relevant posts (most solutions I've seen are for newer model transmissions) Symptoms: It flares when shifting from 2-3...

    Over the past few months I have been slowly rehabilitating my 300TD's vacuum system in the hopes that I would fix any problems before they popped up. Alas, my (automatic) transmission suddenly gave out and is now shifting like it has a mind of its own. Luckily, I know enough about these cars to...
