    R129 SL320 Headlight issues

    My Xenon headlight lense had a crack which let moisture in. The Xenon light and side light now no longer work but full beam does. The light shorts when a new fuse is put in but full beam continues to work. I've replaced the lense and plan to pull apart the light fitting. Planning to dry out all...

    Original spec for wheels on R129

    Hi All Is there anyway I can find out what the original wheels that were fitted to my 1997 SL320 would have been? It has genuine 16" Mercedes wheels on it at present but I don't think they are original - the spare doesn't match! As I want to change the tyres - it has odd ones on the rear...

    Instrument Cluster, blown fuse.

    The Cluster 15 amp fuse has blown twice and I don't know how to start looking for a fault. Is it a case of taking my SL320 into a dealer for a full check over, or even a replacement cluster? The only work I have done to my car on the day the fuse first blew, was replacing the front brake pads...
