Brian Gunney in Cardiff is your man - he is the leading 190SL restoration specialist in the UK . Tel - 0292 052 2157 or 07710 077 605

He is a member of the OFFICIAL Mercedes-Benz Club . http://www.******************.co.uk

Most of the specialist knowledge on these cars will be over on that club - well worth the £35/year subscription .

Like all other Ponton models ( to which family the 190SL belongs) if you look at the back of the steering wheel boss you will see a small hole : press something like a knitting pin that will fit through the hole in there and this will push the star emblem out of the centre of the wheel , thus revealing the retaining nut .

For parts try the following :-
