  1. Any chance I can put back together this timing chain and engine?

    W140 S-Class
    Mods delete this thread. haven't found a way to.
  2. Am I dense?

    W140 S-Class
    I had the same question, they weren't appearing for a while (so I thought, or I just didn't notice them too haha)
  3. Need a comprehensive list of ADS parts for a S500 Coupe

    W140 S-Class
    Turns out the tabs on the wire that connect to the shock just needed a good 50lbs+ of force to snap them on... hard to do in that confined space.. One of them snapped into place, the other I broke a slight bit (the outer shell) while pushing it with all my might. The damn wire comes with a...
  4. Need a comprehensive list of ADS parts for a S500 Coupe

    W140 S-Class
    FIXED! Needed to replace 1 shock, front right ADS wheel speed sensor, and the ADS computer. Now the light stays off. Drove around, and big difference. Not sure about it being better than regular air shocks, but definitely way better than firm mode! Haven't taken her out on the freeway yet but...
  5. please someone help me..they're killing my pocket!!

    W140 S-Class
    Reading ch.1953's post, he mentioned a filter. Where is this filter located for the SLS? and does the ADS equivalent have it too?
  6. Got My MB STAR C4 Diagnostic Tool Today!

    R129 SL-Class
    I don't have an oscilloscope :\ But I do have some semi-good news. I ripped apart the whole harness, and found that this wire has no damn converter! Empty box! And after reading about quality of wire, I did notice that this wire was more flexible and soft compared to the other wire which goes...
  7. Got My MB STAR C4 Diagnostic Tool Today!

    R129 SL-Class
    So with some luck, Paul and I had found that I got an original C3 after all :) !! I've installed all software and software seems to be operational, but I cannot get the MUX to show up at all or talk to the computer. After checking the settings more than 10x, and trying it on an IBM T43 and Dell...
  8. Fan regulator becoming a yearly maintenance item for me.

    W140 S-Class
    Throughout the 4 W140's the family owns, we find ourselves having to replace the fan regulator every year or two. Tried cheap ($20), used originals ($80-110 from junkyards), and expensive new oem/genuine ($187) options, all with same results. Been buying on the cheaper end $40 some dollar ones...
  9. R129 - Removing Instrument Cluster - a Cautionary Tale

    R129 SL-Class
    I've had a couple stuck but no issues. I do slow careful pulls, side to side till I see it start moving a bit, little by little it starts sliding out. I learned to do this job myself since my mechanic cracked it on one of my w140's...
  10. Need a comprehensive list of ADS parts for a S500 Coupe

    W140 S-Class
    So, I took out the ADS sensor, called a few junkyards and no one has it. Decided to open it up, to find some non-conducting fluid ? And thought i'd just share it for everyone to see what it looks like inside and then noticed something that might be the issue, @MAVA with your electrical...
  11. Need a comprehensive list of ADS parts for a S500 Coupe

    W140 S-Class
    Swapped out a computer from junkyard without having a chance to use HHTWIN software to clear or check codes, no change. Did a battery disconnect too. By actuating I meant via HHTWIN. Yes, B24/1, the wheel acceleration sensor is the one showing up in the error. And looking through forum...
  12. Need a comprehensive list of ADS parts for a S500 Coupe

    W140 S-Class
    Yep, following same train of thought on that one. I spun the LEFT wheel while looking at the ADS readings for speed and got a flat 0 throughout the spins. I didn't try to spin the right wheel? Should I be spinning the right side to detect speed?' Oh one more question : On the diagnostics...
  13. Does This Part Need to be Installed ?

    W140 S-Class
    I took mine out, no issues with it off. All it does is make it easier to stick the manual sun roof opening tool and guide it in the right spot. I think it twists onto something (lining?), it's a bad design imo. Falls out easily on mine, maybe mine's just broken.
  14. Need a comprehensive list of ADS parts for a S500 Coupe

    W140 S-Class
    Just wanted to give a little update. I was able to use a mechanic's DAS system, and scan the car and work on it for a couple of hours. One of the issues was, one of the struts had intermittent jumps in voltage, I replaced this strut since I have 2 spares now from all the testing.. lol.. Ended up...
  15. Part number for secondary air pump K17 Relay?

    W140 S-Class
    HHTWIN showed error LH1 011 "Air Pump Relay K17" error code. It shows up instantly after resetting the errors, triggering check engine light. Edit: I found a spare 0015420219 relay and put it in, it worked. No more codes, no more check engine light. Thank you @jal1224!
  16. Part number for secondary air pump K17 Relay?

    W140 S-Class
    Thank you @jal1224 , 0015420219 seems to be the silver 20amp type when looking up parts online. Man, this is a fun one.. 0015427419 shows up as a pink one, but 50amp. I'm going to take apart my 97 coupe to see the relays and their part numbers and see if I can get to the end of this for the 94.
  17. Part number for secondary air pump K17 Relay?

    W140 S-Class
    Hi @AutohausAZ , I've seen it but here's the issue. The w140's had a change in relay layout between years. The 94 has auxiliary fan relays that are long (like 2 regular relays) and newer ones have 1 square relay instead. Your site lists the pink relay as an auxiliary fan relay rather than...
  18. W140 Picture thread

    W140 S-Class
    If you wanna keep the ride a tad bit softer, keep standard. Monoblocks look nicer though. I've been wanting monoblocks, but choose to stay standard since it looks good enough. I think monoblocks are 17 or 18 inch though instead of standard 16, so tire prices more expensive too I think.
  19. Seeking plastic coated front bumper for W140 S500/600 coupe

    W140 S-Class
    You're going to have a REALLY hard time finding one. If you find one in decent condition in regards to not being cracked or somewhat easily repairable, with the two inserts, bite the bullet and restore it. Somewhere between 300-500 USD should be the price point. I spent 2 years looking for a...
  20. Need a comprehensive list of ADS parts for a S500 Coupe

    W140 S-Class
    @thisisntchris87 , I am not sure.. the car sits level if judging by eye, and doesn't sit too tall. This was so beyond my comprehension I allowed mechanics to take over and read from computer and use their known how. But, I think I'll end up sitting with the car tonight and doing all the tests I...
