Our '82 240D/3.0 has been running fine lately. I have racked up a lot of
miles on it with driving down to Albuquerque for class. Added another 125
miles yesterday. It needs to have the headlight switch fixed and just
recently developed a problem with the front passenger-side door not
locking when I lock the driver's door with the key -- a vacuum leak for
sure, and probably the vacuum actuating element, but right now I don't
have time to deal with it. The frustrating part is that I do have a
spare, fully repaired element, but with being in the midst of moving, I
don't know where it is, beside somewhere in the depths of a furniture van.
