    Hi guys
    I need to replace the selector bushings and source new retaining clips out on my 1984 w123 manual 5 speed 300d.

    can anyone suggest anywhere to get the parts please? A tried and tested place or somewhere in the uk that specialises in old merc parts?
    Thanks

    He has an online shop in the USA. I have no experience of using it but he must source his parts from somewhere.
    Good luck.

    Word has it that some of his supplies are from the likes of Febi and Meyle. And he's in the USA so import duty may be payable.

    The OP should identify the parts needed from the EPC. Then ask one of the preferred MB dealers who supply by post. Or use Teile-Profis in Germany, as I do.

    This USA based forum
    http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/diesel-discussion/

    Link is to the diesel discussion page but go to main menu for the petrol cars etc and the ‘how to section’ .
    The site is a goldmine of information but you need to use american phrases in your searches .. gas.. hood...trunk etc etc.
