I just changed the shocks in my 85 300D last week.
Take out both sections of the back seat.
Backed the car up on ramps.
remove the round plastic covers from the vertical
part of the back seat car body.
You need a 17mm open end to remove the 2 nuts
on each shock shaft, make sure you hold the shaft so it does not rotate.
Then there are two bolts on the underside of the car holding the shock brackets (17mm socket) remove those and let the shock drop out.
Replace the rubber mounts and large washers on the bottom side of the shock shaft on insert back in the
I had to jack up the body of my car because I could not compress the shock enough with 1 hand and try to start the bolts with the other, once I had the bolts start I lowered the car and torque the bolts to spec
19lbs-ft Blisten comfort. then mounted the top rubber
piece an washer, used the single supplied lock nut
and tightened up measuring the distance from the top
of the shock shaft to the washer per Blisten 24mm.
Repeat for the other side.
All new bolts nuts washers and rubber washers should be supplied. (I used never seize on the under body bolts)
I also changed the $9.00 stabelizer links.
A simple DIY job all together 30min each side
and I'm slow
They're all trickling in box by box... straight from MB... some from Germany since the US depots don't have stock on certain items... all are C123 pieces. :)

Hold your breath, in case you’re not aware yet… these are...

My 1979 250 (engine M123.920) blew the head gasket. I'm intended to change it, but unfortunately I don't have a Workshop or Repair Manual.
Maybe somebody has the Bentley or the Haynes Service Manuals that can hand me the torque specs of the main head bolts of the cylinder head...
it looks like it's job is to send oil from/to the pan. The gasket just above the pan is brittle and leaking around 1/2 qt a month. Do I replace the whole tube? Or gasket? All The Best,
PS I found my answer from Msource
