Does anyone know how to bypass the vacuum operated door locks. I’m told I need a new vacuum module for the passenger door and it is hard to find. cannot lock my passenger door either from the inside or the outside. I’m ok with just having manual door locks. My car is an’82 380SL.

The utilization of pneumatic pressure-difference forces for completing certain functions in a vehicle is increasingly gaining in significance. Well known examples for the employment of such pneumatic forces are the adjustment of the firing point by means of a vacuum.
Automotive engineering must have been so much fun back then!

I'd be checking if CL module from W126 is usable and these must cost pennies.
I got a few in attempt to spruce up my CL that works without the need for engine vacuum.

I wish my car had mk2 CL with push/pull rather than double plumbing system
