  1. 560 electric fan issue...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I noticed earlier this year that my electric fan won't come on, and when spun by hand, has a tinking sound coming from the motor. How often do these fail, and what is the best way to check mine to see if it's the fan and not something else?
  2. Fixed fluttering cruise control...I think

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I've never been able to rely on the CC in my 107 due to fluttering every time I used it. A few weeks ago, I gave the unit a closer look, and noticed that the rubber dampers on the mounts had shrunk up a bit, allowing the unit to move, instead of holding it steady. I snugged the bolts up a bit...
  3. Searching for part numbers...timing chain guides

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Great info...thank you. This will be of great help! Looks to be a simple job...just going to need a bit of intestinal fortitude to put my hands inside it. It's nothing like what I'm used to tinkering with, and costs likely 10x the amount to rebuild if I screw it up...hence the need for the...
  4. Summers ending!!

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I know the feeling...not many around, and as the dealership told me the other day as they were trying to talk me into trading mine in (no thanks), there isn't another one in the area as clean as mine. I gave them my contact info, asking price, and a small list of recent maintenance done to pass...
  5. Searching for part numbers...timing chain guides

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    1987 560sl I've been putting this off til cooler weather, and it looks like that time is near. I've searched for a kit with all needed seals, guides and whatnot, but don't really trust my Google-foo enough to be confident enough. I also don't own a proper service manual yet, so I'm coming to...
  6. Fuel system question...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Thanks. Changing the check valves did seem to help with keeping pressure in the line, resulting in a quicker start. I still want to check fuel pressures...because while it starts quicker, it's still not a fast start. I'm wanting to get it sorted out before the warm weather season is over...
  7. Fuel system question...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    1987 560sl 10 or so years ago, when I originally began researching my particular issue, it was decided that I needed to replace the fuel pump check valves. I replaced those parts, and the change is minimal, at best. As fuel is used up from the tank, the tank begins building pressure, to the...

    No blue?
  10. 9 years in storage...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I gave her a proper clay bar treatment using Mothers California Gold Clay Kit. She shines up pretty good. Next up...a good wax and polish job.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I ordered the right ones through the dealer...somehow, they got the right NGK plugs, which were the same number I originally ordered. The BPR plugs are in my toolbox as backups, should I ever need them.
  12. 9 years in storage...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Because they looked like this...new ones are on and she runs better now than she did when I got her in 2008. I wasn't aware there was a cover that went over the cap for the top cover, til after I put the new one on, and was cleaning everything up. Needless to say, I took it back off, fit the...
  13. AC squeals...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Is it possible to rebuild or replace the clutch with the compressor still on the vehicle? If so, could you share a link to the parts I would need to do this? I think I'm going to remove the drive belt to it for now, so long as it only drives the compressor, and isn't shared by another...
  14. AC squeals...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I tracked down a squeal from under the hood to my AC compressor...it squeals when AC is off, but quiets down when its turned on. Any ideas what it could be?
  15. Visor question...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    PO, my FIL, had his son "fix" the mirror with gobs of glue...and he put it in upside down. It's also quite loose. I'd like to remove both until a suitable replacement is found. How far down the windshield frame is the electric connector for the vanity lights? What needs done to remove tgem?
  16. Looking for visor...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class 'For Sale/Trade/Buy' Forum
    Looking for a drivers side visor for a 560sl...in Navy Blue. Mine has too many issues to attempt a repair...so a replacement is needed.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Well, at least it's starting on the first crank, quickly...that's what matters the most at this point. I've been told much by different sources, and get more than a bit overwhelmed. Regardless, it's starting like it should. I'm sure it will do even better once the driver's side is done.
  18. R107 Purchase Value

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Looks familiar... Seriously...rot and rodent damage are seriously what I would look at first. So long that the engine isn't seized, it should be a decent mechanical purchase. Rubber bits will need replaced, as will valve covers...mine seemingly may have sprung a small seeping leak, but I'll...
  19. 560sl fuel line check valve...or something else.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    No worries. I ordered the part from the dealer. $40, minus 10% discount.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Thanks. I'm not going to stress if it takes 2 years to sell. I plan on getting some enjoyment from it first.
