Im looking for a replacement front wing for my Sl 280 1997, I don't mind painting one to match the Brilliant Silver (744) panel, my body shop suggested to replace rather than try and cut out rust from the wing.

Hi - I've got a 1993 R129 300sl 24v. I only have the valet keys and not a remote/fob - but have had no problems in the 3.5 years I've owned the car. However, I recently hadn't been able to lock the boot and when I was fiddling around in the mechanism I tripped a switch like thing before stupidly...

I've tried a couple of reputable trimmers, but they haven't been able to source any suitable coloured...
Just come back from a whistle stop tour of Cornwall in my recently acquired SL350 and must say I loved it! Nice and comfortable to drive, roof down listening to that burble from the exhaust was quite satisfying! I thought the acceleration was lacking but once you built up speed it responded well...

I have a 1991 300SL, which has faulty crankshaft pulley. Unfortunately, we also need the pulley with the harmonic damper which MB have told us is no longer made!!! Help.
Anyone know where we might get one from please.
I took ownership of an r129 300sl (1991) last year, and now need to tap into the knowledge of fellow enthusiasts!
Seems as these have an array of potential electrical faults, so it will be good to hear what people have encountered and hopefully I feel less bad about my little beauty.

My refurbished unit has arrived from the USA. I aim to fit it myself but can't seem to find a simple way of removing the vacuum pipe connections from the old unit. I certainly don't want to force anything and break the current pump as I intend to refurbish it with a new motor and sell it on...
