  1. FREEWAY VIBRATIONS PERSIST AFTER NEW MOUNTS AND TIRES

    R129 SL-Class
    See if 40lbs rear and 37lbs front help any. I have the same wheels as you my tires are 245/40 front and 275/35 rear
  2. FREEWAY VIBRATIONS PERSIST AFTER NEW MOUNTS AND TIRES

    R129 SL-Class
    I too live in SoCal and some of the freeways are rough I get the same vibrations in all three of my SL's and they are all in new condition. Love to travel NV and AZ, great fast roads. 60E is real bad but I ain't tried it since the repairs. Parts of 215 shake ,15 south of Corona will take your...
  3. FREEWAY VIBRATIONS PERSIST AFTER NEW MOUNTS AND TIRES

    R129 SL-Class
    Tie rod ends and steering damper may be bad also control arm bushings. Does the vibration change with speed? Is it all freeways and smooth roads? Some freeways are pretty noisy.
  4. Convert To Manual Top?

    R129 SL-Class
    Haha kinda like Jay Leno(y)
  5. Temperature on 94 SL 320

    R129 SL-Class
    I'd check those wires for sure I have a 94 SL320 and the wire harness was falling apart I changed it before tit caused trouble
  6. Bose : too much bass

    R129 SL-Class
    The speakers under the roll bar are full range speakers 2ohm. The tweeters are the upper ones in the doors. The 6" in the doors are bass speakers all should be 2ohm for Bose amp. What radio are you using
  7. Old fuel

    R129 SL-Class
    I guess you could disconnect the line under the hood and turn the key on if the pump is working and direct it into a bucket, lots of pressure here.
  8. Convert To Manual Top?

    R129 SL-Class
    I can relate to that, how about a SL600 in new looking condition with passers-by watching you put the top up and down on a $130k roadster in the rain and snow. If pushing the button is showing off it's for the benefit of the Vette and Miata guy that says "I wish my car did that". Got that...
  9. Convert To Manual Top?

    R129 SL-Class
    It came with that option just unclip your main and bow cyls this makes it easier to manually operate the top:LOL:
  10. ENGINE VIBRATION

    R129 SL-Class
    Check the transmission mount.
  11. Replace R129 door latch

    R129 SL-Class
    I would like to find instructions and/or video on replacing door latches on my 98 SL500. I do find plenty on removing the door handle but nothing on how to replace the latch in the door.
  12. Radiator vent tube fitting

    R129 SL-Class
    Your pic looks the same as my 99 SL600.
  13. Radiator vent tube fitting

    R129 SL-Class
    Take the radiator hose off and push the fitting up outta the top of the radiator. The fitting will probably break so try to catch the pieces. If some fall in it wont hurt anything
  14. 98 SL500 steering noise

    R129 SL-Class
    My 98 SL500 steering makes a vibrating type sound when turning left only while driving also I can feel it in the wheel. No sound when stopped also quiet when turning right It comes and goes but I can jerk the wheel to the left to make it sound off.
  15. 1997 SL600 has rough acceleration

    R129 SL-Class
    I had the same issue with my 94 SL320 and the fuel pressure regulator did the trick.
  16. Grille

    R129 SL-Class
    Depending how bad it is, I took apart the one on my 94 and was able to get out most dents with some hard wood dowels and plastic used as body tools. The slats are soft stainless and work pretty easy. If you do this number the slats cause putting them back is easy to get lost.
  17. Dome light switch faulty

    R129 SL-Class
    I would spray it heavy with WD40 and just keep working it to see if it will wake up.
  18. Found broken piece in car, no idea what it is

    R129 SL-Class
    GOOGLE this mercedes A1298201001
  19. How do I search the forum in this new interface?

    R129 SL-Class
    It's like a ghost town here any more, Seems as though everyone is gone. The search is a joke, so much info is lost. Why call it a R129 forum the search just brings up the whole damn internet, mostly crap and adds.
  20. R129 transmission not shifting when cold.

    R129 SL-Class
    This is normal not to shift when cold if you just drive easy for a couple blocks. It will if you force it, all three of my SL's do this, The rest of the day there is enough temp is the gear box is why it wont do it till next morning unless you're in cold weather and it gets ambient temp.
