  1. remove passenger knee bolster

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    I need to access my climate blower which I believe is behind the passenger knee bolster. How do you remove it? I removed three philips screws and a larger plastic one next to the console and removed the glove box liner. I don't see any other things holding this guy in place. Do I also need to...
  2. Blower Motor problem

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Thanks is ianrandom and mlb87560sec. I checked both the fuse in box and #5 in the fuse box. Yesterday I parked inside all day. On the way home after about a mile the blower came on perfectly. This morning after being parked in the 20 degree garage I get no blower. Am I onto something relating...
  3. Manual Recomendations for 1986 W 126

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    What do you guys recommend for a manual for a 1986 420 SEL? I found three related manuals from emanualonline.com. One is titled FULL SERVICE MANUAL 1.3gb for $30.99. the other is a PDF Full Service & Repair manual for $27.99. Don't think I I want a PDF file. The third listing is COMPLETE...
  4. Blower Motor problem

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    This thread could come to another rescue! Or maybe I need to start a new one. My 1986 420 SEL started the exact same blower on/off and clicking issue. It seems to be temperature related. Above 40 degrees everything works fine. Between about 32 and 40 it clicks on and off with a loud clicking...
  5. 420sel vs 560sel

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    if the 420 has not had a timing chain and tensioner done, count on it needing it. The 560 has a couple nice features like heated and adjustable rear seats and the hydraulic suspension. I don't miss those in my 420. Ultimately I would go with the car in the best condition. Rust can be a deal...
  6. Amazing good habits of the obsessive compulsive 107 owner

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I could use a few more points. Please post a picture of these plastic guides to protect the weatherstrip. Not sure if I want to know. I guess I do. What is the baby bottle thing?
  7. Rotor adivse wanted

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    I replaced the rotors and pads. Car stops! Wheels have not fallen off! Shutter is gone. Brakes smoothly. Most time consuming part of this job was to find a 10mm hex socket to use with my torque wrench. Went to four stores without finding one. Finally borrowed one.
  8. R107 560SL tightening the Sun visor

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Tightening that screw seems like the correct way to adjust the tension but it will never work. You need to get to the ball and socket and put something in there. I used a piece of denim from old blue jeans. It is working for almost a year now but I expect to need to do it again. Next time I...
  9. Rotor adivse wanted

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    My 1986 420 SEL vibrates when braking. Seems to come from the left front wheel. Tonight I removed the wheel. Turning the hub by hand it turns easily for about 220 degrees. The other 140 degrees is hard to turn. I do not have a dial gauge. My guess is I have a warped rotor. Before I start doing...
  10. What's now over your head when driving your 107?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Mine sad to say is parked inside for the winter. The hard top is stored in the rafters wrapped in a tarp. I have only seen the hard top twice in the 17 years I've owned it. It's unseasonably cold in Wisconsin this fall.
  11. 560SL rough idle

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    This thread is 4 years old. Last post from MLSL was 2016. I don't think we're going to hear from him about how or if he solved his problem. I have this same symptom. Had injectors tested and they were no longer giving a good spray. New injectors helped a lot but not totally. New plugs wires...
  12. Blank key wanted

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class 'For Sale/Trade/Buy' Forum
    I bought a spare key from my indie shop. Think I paid less than 20 bucks. He ordered one using the vin number. Had it in a week and works perfect. Maybe it was less than 20 bucks, just don't remember it being a big deal.
  13. Help Needed

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I was just thinking about you and wondering if you need some help. How does one send a pm? New sight has me left out! I should be able to come over Tuesday night and remove the battery, put it upstairs put the top back up and put it away for you. Send me directions using the hwy 83 route...
  14. Where to put old gas

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    RC, AFTER the engine warmed up I thought it ran OK. Are you able to take it out for a cruise? I think I would just in it. Or syphon out a bunch and use it in the other car or lawnmower.

    It's a sickness. I tried to get it covered under health insurance but no success.
  16. 560sl jump starting

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I don't recall any posts in my 86. There might be a positive wire you could use but unless you know exactly where it goes and what it does I think I would not use it. Instead hook up the positive cable to the positive terminal on the battery and the negative to a metal part that is grounded to...

    Spock If it works let's us know.
  18. Engine temp gauge no working

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Thanks much OK. You are helpful again. Working from my desktop in my office and for the first time a link to startek has actually worked! If I read the wiring diagram, page 115 correctly, the temp sensor B13 is connected to ground which I think means it is based upon resistance. I'll check it...
  19. Engine temp gauge no working

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Is there a way to test this sensor using a DMM? Does it send a signal using resistance similar to the two pronged sensor sending ohms to the EZL and ECU? TIA
  20. Engine temp gauge no working

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Suddenly the temp gauge on my 86 560sl is no longer working. Which sensor feeds This? The two prong on the front left side of the manifold? The one with two plugs located on the coolant pipe inlet or the single one next to it or the one on the passenger side at the back of the engine. Thanks in...
