1994 Mercedes Benz E320

anyone want to save this car ?
Generally (not always) cars that have had fake badges applied need all kinds of deferred maintenance and are only being sold because there is a fatal issue. My guess is either the wiring harness or the transmission is headed south.

Mercedes-Benz Model 124 Service Manual on CDs

My question: Is this CD set same as the one we can access through the DIY section of this forum? Or is it something a lot more comprehensive?
It is the same as what is posted online, for free, by Mercedes. There is nothing "more comprehensive" without digging up ancient print manuals or microfiche off eBay and even those would not add much beyond what is in the PDF's online.

Click the link below, then Workshop Resources, then Service Manual Library:
https://www.startekinfo.com/StarTek/

Or, use the much nicer HTML interface here:
http://www.w124-zone.com/downloads/MB CD/W124/Main.html

It's all the same stuff from the CD, just posted on the interwebs.

I would agree, the badges are all original AMG...just not to that car. Biggest clue is the engine. Clearly not a V8, like the E60 requires.

Finding secondhand Euro Headlight assemblies with wipers is going to be a real hat trick here in the US. You'll get the up-date you want much faster and less expensively by purchasing DEPO knock offs on ebay and buying solid blanks to fill the gap.

Good Luck

All he needs is facelift headlights, and I have plenty of those I can sell him. Unfortunately, finding the wiper motor and blades at JY is much harder.

This.

I avoid almost any car with cosmetic (bolt on or stick on) "improvements".
Especially tacky ones

is there anyway i can use the wiper motor that i have currently with the car with the newer lights? if i were to see an e420 at the JY and take the entire assembly would the light fit directly in or do i need to modify anything?

thanks!

X2... I like the early W124 front end with the euro lights and no wipers so much both of my cars have the lights. My 300E has the Bosch and the 300TE has the Depo lights and honestly I can't tell a difference.

Before



After

The pre-facelift motor will not work on the facelift version. In addition, you will need (I think) to get the facelift metal facing that resides inferior to the headlights due to different placement of the hole in it. The E320 and E420 have interchangeable parts for this.
