I have been discovering this is one of those maintenance areas that suffers from severe neglect. Failure of the rubber support or center drive shaft bearing can cause all types of improperly diagnosed vibration problems - some commonly change with vehicle speed.
EXTRA BONUS: You will receive BOTH Kent’s written and video instructions with the purchase of this hood pad. Our W123 hood pad kit includes a quality thick foam pad with sound deadening perforations, the only glue that will really keep it in place, gloves, brush and complete detailed instruc
These are amazing. If you have not tried them before Kent highly recommends you do. Can be used around the shop, on the car, or in the home (keeping computer cables off the floor no less!). This kit contains 12 3M brand stickies with 12 medium length tie wraps.
For all 3.5, 3.8, and 4.2 liter V8 engines from 1969 to 1991 280SE 3.5, 300SEL 3.5, 380SE, 380SEC, 380SEL, 380SL and 420SEL. These THREE are the upper (and easily accessible) plastic guide rails that most often break due to age and heat.
For all 4.5, 5.0 and 5.6 liter V8 engines from 1972 to 1991 (excluding the W140 500SEL).
This super fine cloth along with Miracle Paint can really do some fine rust repair detailing. You can use it on a rough pitted area that you want to smooth out. Put on a couple layers of cloth and coat with Miracle Paint. Let dry and block sand.
So you have more than one car and only want to purchase one battery tender / maintainer. You can use this 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.
New O.E. cap as shown. Alert: These are almost out of production.
Exceptionally nice set of high-performance spark wires as shown. These should be replaced approximately every 80,000 miles for peak performance.
If you are a 1969 to 1991 V8 you should have some extras of these on hand. They are inexpensive and should be replaced anytime you remove your valve covers. The gaskets will keep a good seal longer than the bolt washers.
These will fit all 1977 to 1991 4.5, 3.8, 5.0 and 5.6 liter V8 engines. Do not use NGK, Platinum or any other kind of "special" spark plug. You will be sorry. Use only these Bosch Super plugs. The best you can buy that are readily available for the price.
These will fit all 1970 to 1976 3.5 and 4.5 V8 engines with D-Jetronic fuel injection (electronic). Do not use NGK, Platinum or any other kind of "special" spark plug. You will be sorry. Use only these Bosch Super plugs.
If you intend to replace the spark plugs in your older Mercedes V8 and want to save time and frustration as well as prevent cross threading the plugs then this is the kit you need to do the job right.
This is one impressive tool. Watch the video below to see why Kent is so excited about it. The wheels on the W140 and W220 can be REALLY heavy and taking them on and off can be hazardous to your health ( smashed foot, wrenched back, mental anguish, etc.).
This is a VERY common maintenance item on the older Mercedes V8 engines. If they are too old they will leak. If they are not put on properly they will leak. If you do any maintenance (ie, valve adjustment, clip replacement, timing chain, guides, etc), you should have this kit on hand.
This is the best tool to use when removing throttle linkage ball socket ends on older Mercedes gas and diesel engines. If you try to "twist" them off you can damage the spring clip. It is much better to pry them off evenly.
I do not need to say much about this tool. Well made and well thought out. Someone who obviously was frustrated at scratching the finish on his or her alloy wheels came up with this idea. Watch the video below to see why this is now my favorite go it 17 mm lug bolt socket.
This is version 2 of the special wrench Kent designed to remove and install rear end and manual transmission hex head fill and drain plugs. Have you ever had a problem trying to get a fill or drain plug out of a manual transmission or rear end housing ( especially with limited space)?
Very good used SLS tank assembly as shown. New special hose included. Will need to be cut to length. No clamps. Complete cap and good used plastic filter include.
This is a great tool that functions well to remove tight fighting push pin fasteners on all kinds of cars. It has great prying action and the sharp tips function as great snipers. Even though they will cut wire we do not recommend it as you want to keep them super sharp for plastic cutting.
A better performing and more comfortable 14mm hex wrench to use when changing the fluid in your rear end. Watch the video to see why.
It is not easy to find a good spray can paint! No spray can paint can match the performance of quality automotive paint mixed and sprayed properly from a spray gun, but as far as spray-can paint, this is the best Kent has found ( and he has used 100's of different ones over the years).
Both these units have been bench tested with 12-volt power, and neither of them works. I suspect corrosion inside the motors or ?. Could be repaired or used for parts. Sold as shown and AS IS. No returns.
The plastic seat adjustment handles are now one of the most common failure items on all 116 chassis sedans from 1973 to 1980 and all 123 chassis sedans, wagons and coupes from 1977 to 1985. It is just the nature of old plastic.
I have always like the "idea" of using a "stethoscope" to troubleshoot and isolate engine related noises. In theory, it should work, right? Over the years I have tried all kinds of mechanics stethoscopes and even a few battery-powered listening devices.
This is the best tool we have found to remove the chrome side trim strips and snap type door panels on may of the older models from the mid 1960's to the mid 1980's.
Yes the universal Hirschman antenna will work in your 124 chassis SEDAN ONLY from 1988 to 1993 ( 260E, 300E, 300D 2.5, 400E). BUT getting it installed so it looks good and does not leak is a whole different matter!!.
The Hirschman Universal Antenna is the best economical solution to a failed factory power antenna. They are reliable and not as complicated as the originals.
Why this new wrench? Every had a problem trying to get a fill or drain plug out of a manual transmission or rear end housing ( especially in a tight place )? Found other wrenches won't fit into those tight places or are just not stable or strong enough?
NOTICE APRIL 2017: Due to the unreliabilty of many new aftermarket tumblers sold we will NOT sell the steering lock separately. We do not want you going through the pain and expense of installing a tumbler into a new steering lock only to have it "lock up" on you.
Brand new NOS part. Fits right or left side axle inside the differential housing.
This is a super high quality ALLEN brand wrench with tight swivel head and great feel. 22mm is the size you need to remove your fuel filter on the 1977 to 1985 diesel engines (except 190D). Very limited stock.
BRAND NEW OE breather parts as shown. Make sure these match the ones on your W201 190D before ordering. Includes breather tube and new valve cover seal.
This is the best tool to use when installing or removing the Monark hand primer pump. PLEASE NOTE. This is 19mm and will NOT work on the Bosch hand primer pump or other style pumps (most others are 17 mm).
These are the parts and instructions you will need to fix a very common shifting problem in the 1996 to 2006 Mercedes 722.6 five (5) speed automatic transmission.
This kit is intended to fix SLOW LEAKS in your older door lock actuators. It is NOT intended to repair leaks caused by cracks or tears in the rubber diaphragms!! Please CAREFULLY INSPECT ALL of the rubber on your leaking unit before ordering this kit.
We believe that installing this Electronic Ignition in your pre 1973 Mercedes Benz 4 CYLINDER GAS ENGINE is absolutely the best upgrade you can make to your old classic. Elimination of the contact breaker points is the key to this modification.

This gasket set includes the complete valve cover rubber seals as well as the 12 rubber seals for the bolts. If you are going to change the valve cover gasket you will need to replace the bolt seals as well or you will regret it!
This is a brand new Genuine Mercedes check valve for the fuel injection pump on 4 and 5 cylinder diesels 1977 to 1985. This valve is mounted on inside of pump in the fuel line going to the filter.
W116 450SEL 300SD and 240D 300D W123 Sedan Hirschmann Universal Replacement Power Antenna - Previously Installed
This is a universal antenna that was installed in a W123 sedan, tested and then removed. If you have a universal Hirschmann installed in your Mercedes this could be a good spare for the future. It has the hardware and also the seals and caps needed to install.
There is much confusion concerning this filter. Many owners don't know if they need this combination filter ( both dust and oder) or the white paper element pollen and dust filter ( see related products ). In the end you will need to make the decision.
Old age hardened vacuum lines and hoses can sometimes be a real pain to remove. Then tend to just get "stuck" in place. Rough attempts to disconnect them can cause damage. If you are not careful you can crack the rubber hoses or break the plastic lines when moving or pulling on them.
There is much confusion among W211 owners as well as parts houses concerning the application of this filter. All W211 models from 2003 to 2009 had a cabin air filter located under a plastic box on the right side of the engine compartment near the firewall.
PLEASE DO NOT ORDER THESE FILTERS UNTIL YOU DETERMINE WHICH CLIMATE CONTROL SYSTEM IS INSTALLED IN YOUR EARLY W211 E-CLASS SEDAN. There is much confusion among W211 owners as well as many parts suppliers on which models actually use this set of charcoal cabin air filters.
For you 124 owners cabin air filters have been somewhat of a mystery. Parts application information in many auto parts stores don't seem to be accurate and many are not even sure where they are located. Some owners may even think it is just to hard to change them.
