1985 500SEL with a 560 V8
Gives me some inspiration and ideas for diving into the brake pad wear sensors...those wires have been broken for at least as long as I've had the car.I addressed my ANTILOCK (ABS) light in my 300SD today. You can see the light was illuminated in my above post.
Well I jacked up the Benz and the damn wire was completely cut. Just not even connected.
So I pull the sensor, cleaned it, chopped the remaining wire back and had to use an exacto knife to delve into the sensor plastic housing a bit to expose enough of the old wire (it had broken flush with the sensor) to solder more wire onto it. I then cleaned up the other wire and put some nice connectors on.
Antilock light is no more.
Thanks. :thumbsup:Ugh, flat spots are the worst! I hope you can get the tires sorted out soon.
Also, themonk: Looking good!
The way you see it is the way I bought it on Monday. The a$$ end sits a little high but I'm thinking it's like that because when you put it in drive like all older MB's it squats so driving it looks normal.monk, very nice, love the steering and gear shift, tell us about the head unit install
and u gotta lower it, i had mine rolling around like that for a few yrs, but lowering it works wonders
She did. Good buddy of mine across the street, i got him hooked on SD and SDL's. He's a junkyard dog and managed to find me everything i needed to fix my car. Took a while between work and school and repowering my gas truck with a diesel. But she's fixed. Need to take care of some little minor detail work around the car, give it a bath and a detail.Ah, you are back? Cool, thought this car had a fire.
