Is it possibly to switch the stock 4spd auto for a 5 spd manual on a 91 300D If so where do I find the parts and what do I have to do

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 How to fix this SC plug wire broke

Any ideas how to fix the 2 wires that go into the back of the SC pulley My serpentine belt broke and somehow one of the wires got pulled out of the plug. Here is a picture I found on the site. Do not pay attention to the red and green arrows. Its the 2 wires that seem to plug into the back of the pulley. Thanks for your help

here are some pics... depends how far down it cut the wire... the pics show thats where it goes into the coil... if its cut it down there very low its probably impossible to repair. i would IMMEDIATELY unplug the electrical connector to the sc clutch as the voltage from it may be shorting to ground (engine) and destory the ecu. if its cut higher up you probaly dont need to remove the pulley to get

Ill take a few minutes to explain a little bit about this car. Ive been driving a 190DT for a dozen years. I rebuild it periodically because I cant find anything with the size power economy and reliability to replace it After all these years its more like an affliction than a possession. There are only a few things that can cause a transmission leak of this magnitude. Tranny oil pan dipstick o-ring

I have recently purchased a 1987 190D and have had an excellent experience with it. However since I purchased the vehicle it has had shifting problems. When having other small necessary repairs serviced my mechanic searched the vacuum lines of the transmission modulator. He came upon a small leak and after replacing hosing in the trouble area the transmission improved considerably. However despite

To address the original issues 1) Your transmission may start in first or second depending on how it was equipped at the factory. I think that if the differential is less than 31 ratio it will be set up to start in first. My 190DT has a 2.65 rear and starts in first but many start in second gear. There are mods that can make a 2nd gear car into a 1st gear car but lets not go there just yet. 2) The

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 Help me oil leakage

my magnetic clutch has a problem as picture shown there are two oil leakage spots In A site(connector) that problem is so famous in korea leakage oil soak into cable and mass up electronic equipment(such as ECU) In B site There is no gasket between magnetic clutch and engine block. If I replace clutch into new one I wouldnt fix it up I guess.. Help me Is there anyone who have the same problem like mine

my car is slk 230(2002) and I use a cable extension(I guess 27115027 is I can find no pix. so I am not sure) that prevent leakage to soak cable but still cant stop leaking and the most serious thing is leakage in B site. leak oil massed up my engine room. David said just the Cam Adj. Magnet sorry I cant understand it. David mean that just disassamble the magnetic clutch and assamble the magnetic properly or adjust other parts


Yesterday I was driving home and the car seemed sluggish. I thought it might be the 95 degree temp and 95% humidity robbing power. Still it shouldnt have been that bad. Car seems to want to run through the gears quick and stay in 5th. 30-40 mph and Im in 5th low rpm and I have to push the peddle down over 34 of the way before it will kick down to 4th and start to pull. Its like driving my wifes minivan.

Quote adrenalineslk - 7212005 350 PM you should check supercharger engaging while another person pushing accelerator inside the car. It engage at about 2500 rpm while car is stationary. If it doesnt engage you should check supercharger clutch and ECU controller of electromagnetic clutch. You can also do it from under the hood. The throttle cable goes to a converter on the drivers shock tower so you can do it there.

hi folks long time lurker first time poster here.. 99 slk-230 have had this rattling noise coming from the engine for quite a while now.. especially when putting it in gear to move from standstill or coming to a stop.. it goes away when its in park... there doesnt seem to be any loss of power leakage or increase in gas consumption...I asked the adviser at the dealer but you guys know the drill gotta cough up that couple hours labour so you can get an answer what could the source of the noise be

Since it is present at idle you can safely exclude suspension I think engine mounts

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 Supercharger sinply wont run...

Im not new at this phenomenon im afraid. My supercharger simply wont engage at all the engine runs smoothly but it feels powerless. I have replaced -Superchargers magnetic clutch -Air mass meter -Air bypass valve Checked -K40 re-soldered the joints -Cold start intake egr valve -Power (13-14volts) to the magnetic clutch ok. But nothing whatsoever...As i said the car runs smoothly and starts in any weather but the supercharger is dead. Does someone have any ideas what to check Carl Sweden

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 300E Engine Removal

Ive been looking all over the internet for something that would tell me how to do this. I havent been very successful so Im asking anyone at this forum if they can point me in the right direction. I want to remove my 300E engine and replace it with another 300E engine. I just dont know where to start and what bolts to loosen. Anything would help me immensely. Thanks

Have you ever picked a motor before Its a pretty big job for a first timer. Above ground..... You first need to go around all sides of the motor and disconnect fuel lines power steering hoses engine harness remove fan clutch etc etc. Unbolt transmission dipstick from cyl head and detach kickdown cable from linkage.

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 Sunroof has stopped working...any ideas

Hi guys.... The factory sunroof has stopped working on my Frankie.... Thankfully it decided to pack up in the shut position. When I tried to use the button to open it all I got was a faint whirringwinning noise and the sunroof didnt move at all. I have had a look to see if its a fuse problem but there doesnt appear to be a fuse for the sunroof in the main fuse box. Any ideas as to how I can find out

there is a clutch on the motor your sunroof seized so its just spinning and not actuating the cable to the roof I recommend you GENTLY move it manually (there is an emergency manual mechanism - nut - in the trunk) and greaseclean it. You can also tighten the clutch but that is not a wise thing to do unless you know there is no other problem... if you tighten it and the sunroof is giving more resistance because something broke - youre in for a lot of work...

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Engine swapping 2.0d - 2.6e

In my w201 engine blew up and I have another 2.6e engine from my old w126 that is in really good shape. I was wondering that can I swap that 2.6 to my 190 I did a bit of googleing and found out that 2.6 engine that is in 190 is 103.942 or 103.983. Mine is 103.941 what is the difference to 103.942 And I also figured that I cant use my old transmission (716.213). What transmission shoud I get to it. Im thinking about 5 speed ones. Thanks for help

Im sure you could make a w126 engine wiring harness work but it would be a lot more work. best just to get a full 190e 2.6 wiring harness and dont cut a single wire. either disconnect them at the fuse box or take the fuse box and the abs wiring. this includes some wiring that goes to the instrument cluster headlight wiring as well on the 2.6 the horn wiring is routed around the opposite direction compared

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 supercharger

should the supercharger just work when you set of or when cruising and you kick down should it also work or not cos mine only works when you set of at a junction or traffic lights

The 230 has a clutch mechanism that engages the sc when the engine reaches 2000 rpm although I believe this was changed for a permanent drive system in 2001. Certainly with my 99 you can tweak the throttle cable in the engine bay and see the sc clutch engage and spin up...

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 FTE Bremsen Teile

I was wondering if anybody is familiar with FTE parts. I have to replace my master cylinder & the local parts supplier stocks FTE brake components. I have always used ATE products in the past. I was assured that FTE manufacturers quality components in Germany & that theyre a reputable manufacturer of auto parts for German cars.

I think this is the company. Not necessarily manufactured in Germany. How much are they asking for the part If over 100 they are too high. FTE automotive GmbH manufactures hydraulic brake and clutch systems for passenger cars and commercial vehicles. It offers aftermarket product portfolio which include clutch cylinders concentric slave cylinders brake master and wheel cylinders drum brakes brake calipers

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Sunroof please open

I posted a message a few weeks ago regarding my sunroof the problem was that when you pushed the switch backwards and forwards up and down the sunroof would not move but you could hear the motor going. Also you could openclose it manually. Now I got told to pull out the roof lining and grease the the little channel that the cabel goes down. I did this but nothing then i got told to tighten the clutch

hi blackbenz. It is quite important at this point to know what the circumstances are that led to the roof not working. Did it just stop from working fine or has it got progressively worse The workings of the roof are very complicated but it does have common problems. Yours is not one of the common problems. If you can open and close the roof by winding the manual adjuster there cant be a problem where


Should I assume the cable is damaged I can hear the motor and I can move the sunroof to the closed position by hand (not sealed in the back) How do I take the sunroof apart so that I can inspect for damage. 1990 300E Thanks for any ideas.

Sounds like the slipper clutch is out of adjustment so the motor disengages the sunroof cable before it can generate enough torque to move the assembly. Look for the instructions in the DIY section. Theres a thread to the online service manual.

Andrew replied to me and stated that he has installed a LS1 in an XJ8 but that the car still is not running. He is optimistic that he will be able to get the cars electrical to work.
