    Had the same problems 5 years ago. I removed the door panels, a lot of fasteners was broken. Replaced. Now quiet. It was the panels creating the noise. //Peter

  6. Scanner ODB2 that works with the 38 pin contact

    R129 SL-Class
    Yes, but what I was trying to understand is wich scanner works on SL500 -99 without ODB2 connection. Is all -99 compliant with any odb2 scanner?

    Have a SL500 -99, Europe standard. Meaning we dont have the odb2 contact below the dashboard. It came first with model year 2000. Does anyone have any experience of a reader/scanner that via ODB2 to 38 pin cable that works with cars that dont have the odb2 contact? Have looking around, and...

    The harmonic balancer (vibration dampener) was completely wasted, with rubber parts all over the engine bay area. My indie told me I was lucky that nothing has happened. I can fly out of the Engine, into the hood, or in to the cooler. Just 5300 SEK or 630$ to fix :( Before the change, it sounded...
  11. what is this sound?

    R129 SL-Class
    Sounds exactly like mine SL 500 -99 We do have the same, I think you guys call it Harmonic Balancer. Mercedes called it Vibration dampener in EPC. If I am correct. Stop the car. Mine went relatively quiet the day after. Took it to the garage. The rubber on vibration dampener has gone south. So...

    R129 SL-Class
    As mentioned before, just replaced the sensors for camshaft and crankshaft. The more I drive the car, the better it gets. Could it really make such a big difference in performance just by replacing some sensors? Anyway, I am really really satisfied Feels like 50 hp more :)

  15. ENGING OVERHEATING

    R129 SL-Class
    Hi Read about some people here in Sweden having the same problem. Mostly it was a new radiator that solved the problem. It is made of alu, and when years pass by, it will have some coatings inside, due to the detoriation of the aluminium and whatever they replaced, they still have the same...
