    Hi all, Ive been doing some repairs on my 350SL and got it running for the road. Initially my car wouldn’t shift into gear or reverse. After replacing the trans filter and putting in new fluid, it ran just fine. After two days of driving it on the road the car began to lose power to the wheels...

    Hello , I replaced the trans filter and gasket on a 1975 450sl. There are three "o-rings" (washers) in the kit. Two go on both sides of the dip stick mounting bolt. Where does the smaller washer go ? Thank You ! Joe

    I'm building a track car out of an C107, I found it pretty close to death as it was rotted and had rats living behind the dash. I saved the engine and want to turn the car into a track car. The problem is the car is a luxury car, that's not to say that there isn't any performance parts for the...

    My SL has been leaking some stinky fumes... and with a vacuum set from suck to blow, a rubber glove, and some soapy water I found the leak right here at this clamp a little before the o2 sensor. Is that stock? Or is it likely there from a PO trying to patch a leak there?
  8. R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I'm looking for an SL as a Florida winter car. I have owned several E class sedans and a 1992 Gwagen just for good measure. I'm thinking either a V8 R107 or R129. I realize this spans a number of years. Are there any distinct advantages of the R107 vs R129? Any years to target? Years to...

    Hi guys, Please pardon my english. I have a 450 SL 1978. The cylinder stayed in my hands... The rod mechanism has fallen inside, so the button does not operate anything.

    Good morning, afternoon, and evening! Long-time lurker and reader. Finally made an account. I just got a new-to-me 1986 560SL for $3000. It has 120k miles, is rust-free where it matters, has been a Texas car its whole life, and has never been wrecked. But it also has a good amount of small...

    Hi all, I just bought a 1987 560SL in really great mechanical and exterior condition, but there are a few little annoyances I have that I’m hoping someone can answer. 1) my friend knocked the plastic clip for the sun visor on the passenger side and it broke. Can I just order a new clip and...

    Sorry in advance but new to forum. I keep seeing these pics of the hood opened to what looks like 90 degrees on a 1989 560 SL. I cannot figure out how to do this.

    I just purchased a 84 380SL and I noticed that the suspension bushings are falling apart. I took it to a mechanic and he quoted me thousands of dollars of work. I'm not a mechanic but pretty handy. I think I can replace the lower control arm and the sway bar on my own. I see two options: 1...
