Door hinge lubrication has to be one of the most neglected maintenance items on the older models. I think part of the problem stems from the fact owners don't know how to do it or don't know how to acquire the proper grease gun to lubricate those special fittings on the door hinges.
If you own and maintain an older car (especially 15 years and older) you must be willing to take care of its lubrication needs or you may spend big money later in repairs.
Ever wish you could find a good way to lube the door hinges on your old Benz? Maybe you have seen that little fitting wondering what it is, or maybe you have heard there is a special grease gun that can inject grease into that fitting?
Are you tired of windshield washers sprayers that done spray straight or don't spray at all. If you can hear the pump running but no fluid is coming out the nozzles it could be the nozzle holes are plugged with dirt.
"I have heard some owners complain about the unreliability of those older Hirschmann power antennas. I would say that in at least 80 percent of the few hundred antennas I have taken apart that went bad - the reason was lack of lubrication!

This carpet wetness is such a common problem on the W123 chassis that Kent decided to shot a short video explaining how to troubleshoot where the leak is coming from. He will point out the three potential areas for leaks and show how to use water to find the source.
If you are interested to see how easy it is to install a new hood pad, this video will let you see Kent demonstrate the process step-by-step. If you have purchased one of our hood pad kits, then this video can help you get your new pad lined up and installed properly.

Is your driver side or right side manual adjusting mirror getting difficult to adjust? Is the mechanism broken or will not hold adjustment? Does the mirror glass need replacing? Repairing these types of problems is definitely something you can do yourself!

FITS THE FOLLOWING: all 126 chassis SEDANS from 1981 to 1991, including 300SD 380SE 380SEL 500SEL . Are you tired of the water leaks into the trunk and rear carpet area? Windows all fog up when you get in the car in the morning. Sick of that musty smell in the trunk and cabin.
Adjusting the power tilting sunroof is not difficult if you have the right knowledge and a couple alignment pin tools. Adjustment is not usually needed if the sunroof is working properly.
Manual sunroofs can have problems too. Just like their electrically operated counterparts, most often they will fail due to lack of lubrication. The number one failure point is a broken T handle. Number two is failure of the roof to close properly due to damaged felt feet and plastic slides.
Groaning, snaping and jammed door check straps are a common problem on the older models (up through 1995). This is primarily due to age and lack of lubrication. Newer models will soon start having similar problems. Rain water getting inside the doors is the big killer.
This is part 2 of a 4 part video series Kent has done on repairing the power tilting sunroofs on the W201 W126 and W124 chassis built from 1986 to 1995. Part 1 covers removal and replacement of the sunroof panel and headliner.
When working under a Benz having the right equipment to put the car and hold it safely up in the air is very important. Always think safety, and the type of equipment and how it is used plays the key role in keeping you safe.
In this 10 minute video class Kent shows you what you should initially look for when checking out an older Mercedes for sale. He routinely does a quick 3 to 5 minute walk around to determine if the car passes his priority three part test.
Those three areas on inspection are:
Why would you need to remove a fuel tank? If it is heavily rusted or contaminated sometimes it is just easier to find a good used fuel tank and replace it. Trying to clean a heavily gummed up fuel tank is a real challenge.
Mercedes 114, 115, 107, 116, 123, 126, 124, and 201 chassis window trim has a super strong anodized coating that is impervious to hand polishing but still can oxidize when exposed to harsh environmental elements. When this happens the trim becomes spotted and milky in color and it is NOT pretty!

In this 13 minute instructional video Kent will show you how to clean your sunroof cable tube, prep your cable for easy installation, lube the cable during installation, show preliminary clutch adjustement, and demonstrate how to get cable to engage the drive assembly using the power switch.
Contamintion in the window washer fluid tank is one of the main reasons the spray nozzles get plugged up. Install this little fitler somewhere in the line between the pump and the nozzles on the hood and secure with zip ties.
The sunroof transmission drive unit moves the cable back and forth to open and close the sunroof. There are 5 gears inside this unit that transfer the incoming drive from the motor ( high speed) to the final drive moving the cable (slow speed).
In part one Kent will show you how to get all the sunroof parts off our old Mercedes and on a bench particularly if you sunroof is broken and not moving. In this 21 minute instructional video here is a list of the subjects he covers:
