My car has the same problem - it appears that the switch on the housing for the intake is not closing. It's on my list to fix...
To confirm this: With the ignition off, disconnect the plug from the inlet housing, and short together the two connectors (on the plug side, not the switch). Then turn the ignition on. The pump should no longer run continuously (but, neither will the engine start - this is just a check to ensure the problem isn't elsewhere)
Recently I bought a 1984 280SL in Spain (where I live). It came to Spain from Germany 18 years ago. On it's ITV (safety inspection sheet) it has the notation (translated from Spanish)
"Imported from US in 1984 with 180 km. Homologated for European use and registered in Germany"
I tried multiple searches here and online. The only site mentioned in a post is no longer up. Can someone refer a seller. Even Ebay doesn't offer any.
I can get an entire new top for $305 locally but thought I would try this route first.
Thanks in advance.
So I am sure the question has been asked a lot. I have spent 35 plus years owning/working on Mustangs and Corvettes but have always like 107 SL’s and Pagoda’s (too expensive for starting out) so I started the search. Found a local 84 380 SL w/35,000 miles, second owner. Car is nice needs...
I know the 380sl hood part number 107.880.07.57 was replaced by 107.880.10.50 which was replaced by the the 560sl hood number 107.880.14.57.
So a 560sl hood will fit a 380sl.
But does anyone know if a 380sl hood will fit a 560sl?
