1984 Mercedes Benz 280E
Hey all. I am having an issue with my '84 280E, and it is one of the last issues to be fixed. Since I got the car over a year ago, whenever I turn the heat on I could smell coolant. I could never figure out where it was coming from. My dad and I stood outside for an hour one day and tried to figure it out. My 280E has manual air/heat controls. Well, today I finally found the problem. I traced the leak to the valve controls the temperature of the air. It has two hoses that go to the heater core inside the car and a hose that goes to the radiator. When you change the temperature inside the car, by turning the temperature knobs, the valves move by the wires attached to it. Well, this air/heat control valve is leaking and I need to know either how to repair it or where to buy a new one. I searched all over AutohausAZ, which is where I usually buy all of my parts, and couldn't find it. If anybody has any suggestions please let me know. I will post pictures tomorrow if no one has any clue of what I just described haha.
