Hi All,
How do I adjust the idling speed on my 1981 380SE? Idling is a bit fast with a resultant strain on the transmission when engaging gear.

Have you tried the search this forum function on the top right of the page? Also, the DIY thread on top of page 1 has all the info you are looking for, including the link to an online manual. A 3 mm allen key will work for adjustment, but a 3 mm T - bar or S/D are easier to use. It's best to mark the original position. Good luck. Teutone (aka Horst K)
