Looking at the 'data card' in the EPC I've been able to get a fairly good summary of the original spec of my car apart from one code which I haven't found on any list:

034A

Anyone know what that one is?
Cheers
Ben

034 Safran, Light Tan

In upholstery for W123
Hello there. Thanks for your reply. I did see that. There was a 034 listed in the 'interior' field. This is '034A' and looking at this list...

Mercedes Code Descriptions

... there's a lot of letter suffixes to the numbers and they all seem unrelated. '034A' is conspicuously absent.

Any ideas?

Yeah, it can only mean the trim. Weird how it's not on that list.

By the way, if you remove your jack, there is a rubber "cup" that it sits in twoard the front of the car. Under that will be the build sheet for your car with all the codes.

They're everywhere, I found one under the console when I replaced the hazard switch.
Oh yeah. I recalled a slip of paper in there. I dug out the pic I took. Unfortunately 034 is the only one with in the category that's illegible (and it's not '034A'). I can sort of make out the word 'Ausstattung' which is German for 'Facilities'. Doesn't sound right. Anyway. Weird.
