  1. 124 300TE ball joints welded to control arm or replaceable?

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Thanks. And the 1986-92 300TE with 103 engine- replaceable ball joint, or is this an exception with welded ball joints?
  2. 124 300TE ball joints welded to control arm or replaceable?

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    I searched but did not find a thread that listed which control arms have replaceable ball joints and which are welded in. Are the ball joints for the 1986-1993 300TE replaceable? I do know the 1995 E300 606 engine ball joints are replaceable. Is it correct to say the 1994-95 104 engine...
  3. Cabrio Climate Control

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    The sensor blower fan (aka sampler motor) sucks air through the slotted grill, past the sensor, and then out in the dashboard.
  4. W124 wagon cargo mat?

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Fifteen years ago when I bought my TE, some one in Germany had a rubber mat for the rear cargo area with the seats up. I never saw anything that would cover the entire cargo area with seats folded down. I use a thick wool blanket that can cover the entire area with seats down, and heavy plastic...

    FSM available on this site- great resource! Since this is your first post here, up in the Sticky: 124 DIY Thread section is the Factory Service Manual with index. Very easy to use. In that is this section for the SLS on the 124 vehicles...
  6. Cabrio: Radiator blockage / AC Issues

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    First, read this from the FSM: http://www.w124-zone.com/downloads/MB%20CD/W124/w124CD1/Program/Climate/83-600.pdf Section F describes the ventilation blower, a small motor that pulls air across the interior temperature sensor up in the overhead lamp assembly. When that motor dies, the...
  7. Interior ceiling cloth lost adhesion

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Painful Ouch, a headliner for a no sunroof car is $250, and for cars with a sunroof $1800, which is most of the USA delivery vehicles!!! I have two 1995 sedans that have sagging and badly sagging (like the OP above) headliners. I have been putting off the job, and not driving the really bad...

    Factory Sevice Manual Since you are new to your car, take time to explore the Sticky: 124 DIY Thread section. Many helpful write ups on how to repair these cars, and the Factory Service Manual is there online.
  9. Blacked Out Instrument Panel

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    The knob to the left of the speedometer resets the odometer when pushed, and adjusts the intensity of the dash lights when turned. Turn it clockwise and counter clockwise a few times to see if that helps.

  11. W124 95 E300 diesel

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Relays got wet? The OP has a 95 E300, which is a diesel and does not have an ETA. The blower motor and headlights are not wired in the upper or lower engine wire harnesses of the E300. I'm sure you checked the appropriate fuses, by actually removing them and placing them back in. Also the...
  12. 1995 CE200 cranks but no go

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Respect I'm impressed that not only did you admit your "end user error", you also came back 10 months after to post what you did to correct it, thankfully with a good ending!
  13. Weak air flow coming out of vents.

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Fact check before ordering parts Not funny if the OP believes that ebay is a reliable source of information, does not double check for correct tech info, and orders something that won’t fit on his car. I can only speak of USA delivery vehicles, and the 124 in the USA had factory equipped dust...

  15. '88 300 CE trunk won't open

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Clean the keys Having had an ignition cylinder lock fail in a 190 many years ago (before online help forums even) and it towed to a mechanic for repair, I started an OCD habit. I clean my car keys. Maybe once a year, I take a toothpick and an old toothbrush, and scrub my Mercedes keys. The...

    Don't use polish or wax, because that stuff will get on your hands when the inside of the car gets baked in the sun. Leather dye would be ok. I've also used a leather overgrip that laced by Wheelskins.com.

    Ball joints and flex discs Check the ball joints and flex discs. If either fail, you likely have major damage to the car.

    One thing, it's not a Special Edition. It's a base E300, antenna doesn't retract, worn through seat bolster.
  20. Hacking original Integrated Cellular telephone

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Telephone Base unit in trunk The analog phone system has three components- the phone in the armrest, that overhead push button module, and a base unit in the trunk. I can only guess that both the phone and the overhead module were each wired directly to the base unit.
