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!!.

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.
For these old 6 cylinder gas engines of the late 80's and early 90's Kent feels this part along with the injector o-ring seals could be one of the most overlooked maintenance items on these engines.

New stiff jointed 6 sided flex socket. Has limited travel as shown which keeps it from "flopping around" in tight places.
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.
Ever wish you had an air gun that would not blow chemical cleaners all over the place when air drying critical parts prior to assembly. This could be a brake caliper rebuild, an SLS leveling valve or pump overhaul, and electric fuel pump rebuild, etc., etc.
Brand new set of TWO Sachs O.E. rear hydraulic struts. These only fit the 560SEL and 560SEC. No instructions are included for changing the struts but you will receive a free video on how to flush change the hydraulic fluid after changing the rear struts.
Hard to find an early W126 headlight assembly in this condition. It would be near perfect except for a small grey plastic tab that was broken off in shipping.

This is the repirator Kent uses in his shop when working with spray cleaners, spray can paints and fumes created by testing fuel injectors. The mask fits comfortably, seals tightly, and is light weight.
With these old gas fuel injectors, sometimes you just have to "back flush" the insides to restore them to peak performance. There is no guarantee that back flush cleaning will restore every old gasoline mechanical fuel injector. Some are just plain worn out.
Have you ever been embarrassed by opening and closing one of your car's doors? What is that annoying noise bystanders may ask?
Great price on a set of two new front brake rotors as shown. These are sold only as a set of two and do not come with installation instructions.
VERY STRAIGHT and damage free wheels with knobs to hold the small round hubcaps. This is the actual set of wheels you will receive. I also have a set of white hubcaps and beauty rings for these wheels, but I suspect they will set fast. See related products below.
EXCEPTIONALLY nice original alloy wheel set of 4 to be removed from a 1980 300SD. Curb damage is non existant with only a few very small scratches in the outer rims. Complete with center caps. No lug bolts included. Old tires will be removed from wheels to save shipping costs.

This is a quality long 17mm combination wrench with a "twist." The ratcheting box end can be adjusting straight or at any combinations of angles to the right or to the left. This will allow you to get onto bolt heads or nuts in very tight places.
These are very high quality finish 13mm combination wrenches that are 8 inches long. How many times have you needed that extra reach or that extra torque! One of the most common sizes you will use on older Mercedes Benz.
Over the years I have used lots of different methods to clean off rust before applying Miracle Paint. This is the best and quickest method I have found. This is a great tool that can be used for many other things like cleaning off brake hubs and rotors.
This is such a common problem, I decided to come up with an inexpensive kit that will help you clean off any corrosion you find on your parts and seal them so they will not continue to corrode in the future.
These early “short style” electric fuel pumps are very prone to leaking fuel because the rubber case o-ring seals harden with age. New pumps are no longer available and rebuilt are over $1000! If you risk buying a used one it will probably end up leaking or seeping fuel too.
This is a special contact cement ideally suited for bonding foam hood pads to steel or aluminum hoods. You will receive one pint can of glue full to the brim. This is enough glue for one hood pad IF APPLIED PROPERLY!
I have used a ton of 5/8 inch spark plug sockets over the years but this one is the best. Primarily for two reasons: 1. The rubber holder inside the socket is twice as long and twice as strong as what is in most of the other spark plug sockets out there. 2.
These are the style of wheels that started showing up in the very late 1960's and early 1970's. Please note size and part no. They will fit on almost any Mercedes from the early sixties up through the W123 but please make sure you want the 6" wide wheel.
This is something many owner's and mechanics miss. That little check valve on the side of the injection pump can cause a lot of starting problems on the older diesels.
Kent's personal little diesel and one of his favorites. Watch the video to see why!
