Its a good idea to include the mod and year (like 1982 280SE
) of your car visible to everyone reading your posts (similar to my profile next to this), it helps generate responses.
Members wanting to give correct advice are not likely to search through an entire thread for your posts mentioning the engine / mod of your car.
P.S. Fellow mod 420 SE is what you call a banana bender
and his sig also has the link to the Aussie MB club
I have the coupe SEC which is different, i think once you pull the release lever in front of the drivers door, next to your leg space, the hood should go up 1 step, search with your fingers and there should be 2 release levers on both sides of the hood.
Otherwise, a second step hood release will stick out from the grill when you pull the hood up slightly.
#10 is the inside car lever. RHD will be on the opposite side.
