Takes maybe 45 seconds and the only tool you need is your hand.I know that it is a PITA with W124 to replace the knob. What about W210?
This is the boot I am having in mind, seller says fits W210, not bought yetHey, Tex. I'm trying to picture that and I can't see it attractively in my head. If you don't mind taking and posting a couple of pics after that would be great.
The seller advertises with "Any special orders are welcome (any model, any car for no extra cost) made by a leather specialist with only the finest and best quality leather. Please contact us!". Thusly if I order then exactly for my application.^^^ Thanks for the link, I just bought it out from under you.
His ad just says 124 and C class, did he tell you in email that it would fit the 210? You said the 124 was a pain, on that car he says it's ten minutes.
Just a couple thoughts. Be sure you have a solid understanding of the return policy and argue in advance for a shipping refund for at least one direction if his representation is false. Also, find out how it mounts. If it locks down and you get stuck in park you'll have to figure out how to get around it quickly so you can get to the release portal.
Take care and enjoy the ride,
I contacted the seller few days ago and he said that boot (this is only boot he is selling) will not fit on the car that doesn't have a base for it. As I mentioned in another topic -even if you fit the boot on, you will loose visual on gear selector.This is the boot I am having in mind, seller says fits W210, not bought yet
eBay Motors: MERCEDES 190 W124 C CLASS SHIFT BOOT BLACK REAL LEATHER (item 280331364698 end time Apr-10-09 06:53:27 PDT)
My fear of getting coffee spilled all over the shifter might be the compelling factor, but on second thought I gonna let it be.I contacted the seller few days ago and he said that boot (this is only boot he is selling) will not fit on the car that doesn't have a base for it. As I mentioned in another topic -even if you fit the boot on, you will loose visual on gear selector.
No liquids, including beer, near the shifter. I was saying 45 seconds because tex hadn't done it before.Make it 15 seconds if you leave the beer before entering the car.
