  1. Leak from windscreen side rain channel?

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    I have a similar small leak that shows up at the a-pillar at dash height, but I think mine is coming from the bottom of the windshield seal on the passenger side of the car. Are the missing screws you're referring to visible from inside or outside the car? I don't see any exposed screws on my...

    When I contacted Lseat via email, I couldn't get an answer on the phone, they said they have a dark blue they can offer for the W123 coupe seats. https://www.lseat.com/products/1985-1989-mercedes-benz-r107-sl-c107-slc-custom-real-leather-seat-covers-front.html I like the color, but would still...

    I've been looking at options for possibly recovering my coupe seats also. I ordered the samples from Lseat, as I know they have a good reputation. Unfortunately the only blue they offer is a bit too bright for my tastes. I've also looked at sjs-carstyling. They sell some of their covers on...

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    Coupes in good shape are not very common and prices do seem to be going up. Just as an aside, I've been watching Narcos:Mexico on Netflix. It's set in the early to mid 80's and a couple of W123 coupes get a lot of screen time. The main character drives a red one (perhaps Mesa red?) and his...
  5. W123 230CE 1984r service manual

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    I have the same model/engine. I have a 230CE service manual that may cover those issues with the 102.985 engine. I'll take a look. I do have a very lengthy M102 service manual in a pdf format that I can email to you. It is geared towards the W201 models but it may have what you need.

    Excellent. So what was the original sticker price? If you are looking for other wood trim supplier options I bought a refinished set in Zebrano from hpw-cardesign...

    Congratulations, that's a beautiful find in really great condition. My rear windows don't operate fully either, so that repair is on my to-do list. I'm guessing it's bent regulator parts also. The coupes are pretty rare, but I lucked out and found mine less than a mile from my office.
  9. help identifying electrical component

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    I have a '84 230CE with the M102 engine. The wiring diagram I have for it is challenging to read as the print identifying the wire colors, etc is small and blurry. Can anyone tell me what the component is just to the left of the a/c lines, with the white base and the green, yellow and white...
  10. Removing control cables from heater control valve.

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    Well I managed to just snip off the flared ends with wire cutters and slide off the cables. New valve in place.
  11. Removing control cables from heater control valve.

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    Hello, I'm replacing a leaking heater control valve in my 84 230CE. Are there any tips for releasing the 2 thin control cables from the valve? There is a flared end keeping the cables in place. I've tried prying them off with a flat blade screwdriver, don't want to take a chance of damaging the...
  12. Determined Chap vs. W123 230E Barn Find

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    Great link. I've been following his saga on YouTube also. I thought for sure he would get it started in the last video. I'm wondering if it's some bodge by the previous owner, creating as issue with the coil or timing. I wish I had advice to offer, but he's tried a about everything I can think...
  13. Rare?

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    Would love to see some photos also. Congrats on your acquisition. I came across a 1984 280CE 5-speed manual for sale back in the spring, but didn't end up buying.it. I don't know the production numbers, but it seems like 5 speed 280CEs are pretty rare.
  14. 1984 300CD US sunroof electrical suddenly not working

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    I'd try the fuse first. On my 84 230ce it's a red 16A fuse, on the bottom row, very far right of the fuse box. It says 'd', rather than a number next to the fuse.
  15. You guys please talk me out of a mistake

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Yeah, he hasn't commented since the 24th so I'm guessing he's not pursuing this one. I had initially considered going to see it based only the CL ad which had no photos. I'm glad drumbeater posted the photos and story to go with it to save me a trip.. I'm still determining if I can fit in one...
