Never had Hydro - would never want it, but from recall the EUROs had full height available. I suspect all the way in is normal, one stop out is high and all the way out is full up for unusual circumstances.
Yes, you pull it out to raise the car. You pull it once, it raies the car like 4" and you are not supposed to drive any faster than 50mph that way. You pull it once more (farther out) and it locks the car in the raised position for service. If you ever put your car on a lift, or take it in for service you need to make sure they know that the knob needs to be all the way out. If you dont, the weight of the wheels will pull down on your hydromat struts, and push all the expensive oil out of your system. So, pull once to raise your car to clear snow or speedbumps, and pull it out all the way for service. Before going into service, i always leave the knob pushed all the way in, wait for the car to rise to normal height, then pull once, wait for it to rise to the "high" position, then wait, then pull it all the way, and wait again before putting it on the lift. Better safe than needing 3 liters of $20/L oil.
Here's what looks like a fully-optioned Euro 500 on ebay. It has the hydropneumatic option, reclining rear seats, and tons of other things. Pretty cheap on ebay so far... might be worth to "restore" this one unlike some other junk models members are trying to restore.
I'm prepping for Dynamat and it looks like the floorpan for the rear of the car may be some material on top of the actual metal floorpan? But it seems much sturdier than the other asphalt crud that's up front. I'm just not sure if I want to be tearing this stuff up to lay down the Dynamat.
Brand new to the forum and I picked up my dream car by chance.
1989, 560 SEC.
Lots of miles(235K) but I don't think that matters much, it was driven almost daily.
I'm no expert as you can read so don't beat me up here with my thoughts!
I've changed a number of sensors to get the...
Hello all - new to the group - I am having my original 1991 300SEL's Becker 1432 head unit repaired and it was removed from my car by a local shop.
I would like to reinstall it myself and I am not sure about the clip/insertion process.
I see two large silver clips sticking up into the space...
Over the past couple of weeks I've sunk about 7k into my, up-until-recently derelict 300SD. I've been talking about it for years but it would appear I'm now actually restoring my W126.
I'm aware it's financially stupid and don't expect to ever be able to sell it for anything. I originally...
