    R107 350 SLC - no signal going to the fuel pump relay

    Hi Guys I've got a 350 SLC manual that's a non starter. I put direct power onto the fuel pump and it runs 100%. I checked through the relays and found the fuel pump relay. Swopped the relay with another to test and no joy. I then bridged the relay so direct power from 12v goes directly to the...

    R107 wipers won't turn off!!!!

    I bought a R107 1985 280SL recently. The wipers used to run on "0" but off on "1". They also used to turn on when indicating - very annoying! So I figured it was the stalk. I purchased a brand new stalk and I have just fitted it - now the wipers run on every setting when the ignition is on! I...

    1972 350sl front antenna

    Hi The automatic antenna on my 1972 350sl (R107) has been misbehaving. It continues to try to wind down the aerial after it is fully down - resulting in a flat battery. I've disconnected it from the Becker head unit for now but does anyone know how to get at the antenna? It's situated on the...

    Hi I forgot about my old Mercedes 350sl and left it in a garage (embarrassingly for 14 years) whilst I moved away, had kids etc. I went back and got her about a year ago and had everything done bodywork-wise and mechanically too. Looks really beautiful. Now I want the interior done. The...

    Who rebuilds cruise control amplifiers?

    Having bought a reconditioned cruise control amplifier unit for an R107 (p/n 0035450732) I am the proud owner of my old broken unit. Does anyone know who can rebuild my own unit so that I have a spare? Resoldering it myself seems a bit pointless if I don't have the facility to test it.

    R107 300SL Engine cutting out

    Any assistance would be useful - my 1987 300 SL has recently started to cut out after a period once the engine has warmed up. It starts up again but then the frequency of it cutting out increases to the point that it is not driveable. At first the concensus was that it was dampness in the...
