Over the years Kent has detailed hundreds of cars and you know from his videos that he likes "extreme" detailing. His absolute favorite two "tools of the trade" are these premium grade microfiber sponges and what he calls his soft bristle "sawed off" paint brushes.

If your 380SL or SLC key is stuck or is sticking this may be your only option for repair! New tumbler and key assemblies for these cars are no longer being made.New O.E. steering lock with special tumbler and two keys as shown.
Removing a Mercedes instrument cluster from any of the chassis listed is easy with these special "pull" tools. Many owners do not realize that the instrument cluster is just pushed into the dash panel and not held in with any bolts or screws.
Wouldn’t it be grand if there was a way to remove your ignition tumbler without a key - then easily start the car using a flat blade screw driver or needle nose pliers and drive away?
If you have been around old Mercedes for any length of time, you have probably run into a problem with your ignition key starting to "stick" or one that does not turn. This problem can leave you stranded and could cost hundreds of dollars to fix $$$.
This video is not only going to show you how to remove and replace the “SNAP cap” style tumbler, but it also going to explain the theory of operation and how to avoid certain pitfalls when doing this job yourself. And YES, there are pit falls.

Original first aid kit as shown. Not to be used - but good for show. I can not confirm is all the original items are inside. Sold as is.
Very good black plastic cover as shown. Originally came on early 240D but can also fit 300D 300CD and 300TD. Rear Pin on back side not broken off as in most. Straight panel and mounts securely. Note: No cutouts for power window switches.
This one is straight and has all the clips on the back side, but you can see it has a little chipping along that front edge. When a little touch up and polishing this could me make to look pretty good because it is not all cracked up like most.
Good used working PASSENGER side rear door window regulator and motor.
Good used working driver side rear door window regulator and motor.
Passenger front regulator with good working motor. Appears to be a recent replacement.
This assortment was removed from a 126 sedan with navy blue interior. This is NOT a complete set of hardware and trim. Only misc peices. What you see is what you get. Study picture carefully.
Super nice front speaker covers in chocolate brown with good mesh. Could easily be painted blue or black.
This one is super nice. Looks like it has never had ashes in it nor has the lighter been used any. Good chrome, good wood.
Good used rear view mirror as shown. Has two small cracks in the ball socket but still holds. Priced according.
Works on all 123 models with right side manually adjusting mirror.
Very good used working 201 regulator for right rear door. Frame is very straight. Strong motor. No frays in cable.
Exact tool kit as shown. Pouch will need some cleaning. When was the last time you saw a set of original pliers that were not rusty and worked freely. Can not guarantee every original tool for this model is here. See picture. What you see is what you get.
Excellent used part as shown. Not perfect but still has cad plating and non rusty threads as shown.
This is one of the best sets I have seen recently. The doors open nicely and the lights in both visors work!!!!!. We will even include the special headliner attach clips as these complete the electrical circuit. These are also not cracked and in excellent condition.
Any of us who have owned a 1977 to 1985 Mercedes W123 for any length of time have probably had to deal with the glove box door at some point. The hardest part is loosening and removing that weird little round slotted nut on the two hinge points.
Very good used working 201 regulator. Frame is very straight. Strong motor. No frays in cable.
Good used set of navy blue vinyl trim pieces as shown. Almost all pieces are there including some chrome trim. Only one rear door ash tray included . Note one door upright piece has a slight break at the top. All four arm rests in excellent condtion.
Excellent used instrument removed from a 125,000 mile 300SD. Good work tach and clock.
Original first aid kit and box as shown. Contents are original so should be for show only. Plastic box is good except the little lid closing tab is broken off.
Good used tight adjusting mechanism. Nice looking mirror.
Appears to be a recent replacement. Not new buy teeth are not rusty and hardly any wear. You an also see the motor was spliced in. So you will have to splice your wiring. Check out Kent’s video if you need instructions on how to install.
This is an above average used door check strap. It was removed from a rear door so I does not have the usual wear associate with front door checks. No cracks in the cast frame. This will fit either right or left front or rear doors.
Set of chrome covers that go where the right side mirror should mount. No screws included.
Good seal to hold the cluster into the dash. If this gets damaged you cluster will not hold in tight to the dash opening. Most of the rubber gets very hard over time. This one is near perfect. No nicks and still super super soft!
Good used plate as shown. No small screw included. Does have one of the three tabs broken off on back side but still fits well.
Very good used. Good chrome and not sloppy hinge.
Complete set right and left and in good condition. No cracks. Both screws are included.
Very good used set of black visors. No age staining or warping. Above average. Mirror in good condition.
This video covers the step-by-step VERY detailed procedure for removing the W201 rear door panel, inspecting and lubrication components inside, and replacing the door panel without damage. This is why it is 30 minutes long! Kent really covers the subject in DETAIL!
WILL NOT FIT 2 DOOR COUPE MODELS! Very good used window regulator with working motor. Wiring not cut. Very straight and excellent gear teeth. Above average condition.
Excellent used shfit knob. Still has grain on the top and rubber is strong and tight. Fits all W123 from 1977 to 1985 as well.
Tool kit removed from 1979 300SD. As you can see it is not complete and will need some cleaning and detailing. Sold as is not returnable.
I wish I could say this one was perfect. It almost is. There is no damage to the wood or the veneer and the back side is clean and damage free, but there are just a few very tiny hair line cracks in the finish (not in the wood) that you can hardly see.
Although not perfect, this may be one of the better 116 center dash wood pieces you will find. No major damage in the wood or finish, But there are a couple very fine line (hard to see) cracks in the finish coming off the bottom corners of the switch cutout.
Circuit boards can also fail causing intermittent fuel and temperature gauge readings. Oil pressure gauge can leak oil. Before ordering please confirm wire plug Location. This one has multipin wire plug near the top of the cluster. Newer models have wiring plug towards the bottom.
Good used intact rubber instrument cluster hold-in gasket.
Good used steering wheel as shown. Not perfect. It is worn almost smooth at top and left side but rubber is solid on the wheel ring and DOES NOT twist. No gouges, rubber missing or damage. Horn pad not included.
