Cosmetic replacement. Very nice looking cigarette light, but I have not tested so can not confirm if it works or not. I may work fine but can not guarantee. Priced accordingly. Not returnable.
Good used working sunroof motor removed from W126 300SD with good red clutch adjustment lock nut. Will also work on 1981 to 1985 W123 but the mounting bracking may be different. You can use your exisiting bracket - easy to change.
Good used working (tested) sunroof motor and rubber drive bushing as shown.
Good used very straight pulley.
Good used cover as shown. No breaks along the outer edge. Good gasket and thumb screws. Fuse box chart inside is for a diesel model is still in good condition ( not bent, not curled, very readable and clean. Getting very hard to find them this nice anymore.
Good ground cable as shown. Even includes good tightening bolt.
This potentiometer for controlling the dash lights was recently removed from a 300D. It is obvious from the condition that it is a recent replacement. Can not be sure how old it is, but it has excellent spring and rod movement and no corrosion. NO LONGER AVAILABLE NEW.
A 12 volt test light is a very handy tool to have when working on any car but it is particularly important if you have a old diesel. This tool will allow you to quickly determine if there is power getting to your glow plugs, and if not where the power is breaking down.
When replacing the steering lock assembly in your Benz you will need to remove that little black plastic switch on the side of the lock from the old one and put it on the new part. You can not pry it off, squeeze it off or pull it off by hand.
Tired of lugging around heavy batteries or battery boosters to test electrical components in your car? It does not have to be a Mercedes. It does not even have to be a car. Anything that runs off 12 volt DC power can be tested by these small, light weight but very powerful batteries.
If your rear door power window is not moving or the motor is not making any noise, it could be a failed motor, rear door switch, front switch or even a wiring problem. Trying to narrow down the problem can be frustrating unless you know the proper troubleshooting sequence.
If your engine temperature gauge is not reading at all, you need to fix it before you keep driving the car. To ignore this could lead to major engine failure, since you will have no way to get an adequate warning that your engine is about to overheat.
This is another small "frustration" for W123 diesel owners. The fuse box cover is mounted flat to the firewall behind and to the left of the brake booster. You can not just pull it straight out nor can you just push it straight back on.
No expedited shipping. Please allow 3 to 5 business days before this part can be shipped. It is not located at our main shipping warehouse and sometimes it will need to be removed from a car before it can be cleaned and packed for shipping.

Works on most Early 116, 107, 114, 115 and early 123 models up to the end of the 1970s. This is a Meyle replacement for the Bosch rectangular voltage regulator (see image below) those cars that use an internal voltage regulator.

Looking for better-staring performance? Are your glow system lights not coming on on your dash even after replacing the glow plugs? It it taking way too long for the glow light to go out ( it should only be on 5 to 10 seconds)?
50 amp fuses were used on most 123 240D diesel glow plug systems due to the lower amp draw. 80 amp fuses will also work but some may choose to go with original spec. Check the number on the center of the fuse you are currently using. It should read either 50 or 80.
Fits chassis 116 123 126 124 and 201 Diesels with pencil glow plugs, from 1978 to 1989. This includes the OM617, OM601, OM602, and OM603 engines. They also work on 1977 to 1979 300D 300CD and 300TD with series glow plugs. This pack includes three individual fuses.

This is another small "frustration" for W123 diesel owners. The diesel requires a big and heavy battery that is not as easy to remove and replace as you would think. If you are not careful, you can tweak your lower back lifting one out of the car.
An annoying problem on many older Mercedes up to 1980 that have an aluminum housing surrounding the turn signal arm latching assembly. When these wear out the lever will not hold position when you push it up or down.
To many people, automotive electrical systems and testing are a big mystery. It is not as complicated as you might think.
When an old Mercedes ( or any other car for that matter ) has sat idle for over a year it can be a challenge to get it safely back on the road again. If it has sat idle for more than 5 years you may find it difficult to even get the engine running.
Malfunctioning and failed power window regulators (mechanisms) are so common on older Mercedes that Kent can almost guarantee if you own one and drive it regularly you will have to fix one at some point.
This was removed from a 1981 240D. It is in good cosmetic condition but does not power up. We do not know what the problem is, but you can send these radios into Becker U.S.A. ( just google) for repair. These are getting harder to find each year.
Good used turbo diesel Alternator. Good working condition just removed from running engine. Good bearings. New Monark Voltage regulator installed. Ready to place on your turbo diesel.
Ever just need a small piece of good auto wire to make a repair - then run to hardware store to discover they only have lighting cord wire or you have to buy a big roll. This bag of 5 longer pieces of wire consists of different wire gauge and color. Lengths vary. All wire was removed from cars.
Kent has found so many uses for this little brush that he can hardly count them. On the top of his list is using this brush to clean out the typical corrosion on the fuse box contacts. Watch the video and you will see what this brush is ideal.
So you have more than one car and only want to purchase one battery tender / maintainer. You can use this high quality harness to connect to another car's battery and then just move your trickle charger between cars by easily unplugging it and plugging it back in.
This is a must-have if you have a prized Benz or any car you don't drive often!! If you let any of your cars sit for long periods ( generally over 30 days) without driving them, you can ruin your battery, especially if you let it go completely dead.
Good working rear door panel mount power window switch as shown.
Good used plug and wire as shown for the AC compressor. Will need to be spiced into your original wiring.
Good used working sunroof motor as shown. Does not come mounting bracket or clutch locking nut.
In this video instruction Kent will show you how he installs our battery tender kit in a W124 Mercedes.
The electrical plugs on 1995 and older Mercedes have a tendency to corrode when exposed to high moisture enviornments. When they do corrode - you will not see the corrosion - and you can end up having all kinds of weird electrical problems.
Very nice and carefully removed wiring harness from an early W123 240D. Not 100 percent sure it is all there but sure looks like it with all the plugs intact and nothing cut. You may not need all of this but if you just need some sections for a 77 to 79 240D it is worth having this on hand.
After years of "fighting" fuse replacement, Kent finally decided he had had enough! And so is born another special tool. It is designed specifically to securely grab hold of a ceramic fuse and remove it from and replace it back into the fuse box with very minimal exertion and no damage.
Good used connector block as shown with two good screws. Screws often break off due to corrosion.
In this video Kent explains some of the key reasons for poor battery contact and loss of voltage to important electrical components. If you want your later model Mercedes to run a peak performance pay attention to your battery.
Excellent used straight power window regulator with good teeth.
This is an above average used and a working potentiometer (dash dimmer switch). Fits only W123 chassis. We only have two left. Each one was cleaned up and inspected by Kent. No corrosion or lost wire. NOT PERFECT. They work but may not work as smoothly as brand new.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We do not sell replacement antenna masts by year and model. We have run across too many problems with confusion, interchangeability, and previously swapped antennas. We sell a SMOOTH TAIL mast and a TOOTHED TAIL mast.
Have you been having electrical problems in your older Mercedes? Maybe you have taken the fuse box cover off and wiggled a few fuses and it has solved the problem for a while. You probably noticed corrosion on the tips of the old aluminum fuses.
