R129 SL500
Hi guys and girls

We are now offering a repairs, maintenance, detailing and restoration book-in service, for the R129 SL, at our garage in the southeast, in Kent. More information on that at our website here.

I would like to ask - what problems related to the R129 SL have you had, or had heard about which potentially deterred you from your purchase?

And what problems are you having now! We probably know this car better than most (likewise for the W140) - ready to answer questions on here and lead you through it! Or private message me.

Thanks
Jay

Ok here's a weird one for you.
Old PSE pump everything worked fine till it died.
Fitted new (used) pump and now neither front door unlocks but every other lock works fine. Moving air lines about makes no difference. There is no leak on either front door line.

Car is 1993 500SL.
