Might not have been their fault (did not read the ad so if they said it 
was, I am out of line?).
My poor old mother in law celebrated her 87th yesterday. We went out to 
the hospital where she is in a geriatric rehab program to get her back 
on her feet so she can go back to where she was living.
She fell and broke her elbow a month or more ago and has just had the 
cast off so now she needs some therapy in order to be able to use her 
walker.


In any event, on our way home after this, last evening, I literally 
dodged a bullet. A young fellow driving a late model Dodge van crossed 
a number of lanes at high speed into my lane. I don't know how he missed me.
I saw him coming out of the corner of my eye and hit the brakes and 
moved left as much as I could and he slid into the lane in front of me. 
I very much doubt that he knew I was there until I hit the horn.

Wierd. How does one not see a red F150 Supercrew in daylight???
I am very happy that my truck was not wrecked. My peripheral vision must 
still be good!

Re: [MBZ] 300 SDL Front Transmssion Pump leaking

2015-07-09 Thread Jim Cathey via Mercedes
I have transmission fluid leaking from my '87 300 SDL, had a garage 
check
this out and they identified it was the Torque Converter leaking.  
Replaced

the seal in the converter, now they state the front trans. pump is
leaking.  What are they up against Thanks, Ralph,


Idiocy?  It's more-or-less SOP, when dropping the tranny to
replace a seal, to do all the ones that are now easy to reach.
Front seal, pump seal, etc.  Maybe even consider engine's
rear main seal at that time.  They're all staring right
at you at that point.

[MBZ] Front window scraper remove and install - W123 300TD

2015-07-09 Thread Andrew Strasfogel via Mercedes
This weekend I am going to tackle the refreshment of the LF and RF rubber
window scrapers, which have aged to the point of being completely incapable
of removing fog or water droplets when I lower/raise either front
window. Due to my twin credos of ready, shoot, aim and why do it right
the first time?, any job is a challenge and definitely an adventure. This
jobtherefore has a HIGH degree of difficulty, which means, assuming I am
successful, I will deserve at least one and perhaps TWO attaboys (one for
each side).

Can someone advise me on the steps involved?

Re: [MBZ] Front window scraper remove and install - W123 300TD

2015-07-09 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
I don't recall doing window scrapers on a W124, but on the W123 and W126 the 
outer scraper is clipped to the outer window sill moulding.  The scraper itself 
can be pulled up and out of the clip on both the inside and outside. The clips 
are very, very strong, and you might find yourself pulling the trim up with it, 
as the clip is clipped to the trim as well.

I liked pulling the trim off, as it allowed me to clean underneath, which is 
usually horribly messy.

The inner scraper was similarly clipped on to the inner door panel, which you 
don't have to remove.

Another reason why I liked pulling the trim and inner door panel to do this is 
that on some occasions you would push the clips down and out of reach when 
attempting to install the new scraper.

Where did you end up getting your window scrapers?

Wow, I sure didn't expect that; being called an idiot!


If you were doing your own wrenching, I apologize.  If you
were using a 'trained' mechanic, then HE is the idiot!

It was explained to me, back when my tranny needed servicing,
that IF you take it out you ALWAYS replace those then-easy
seals, because the parts and incremental labor are cheap.
And you _don't_ want to have to pull it again the next year.
Or month.

After all, if one is already leaking the others may not be
far behind.  The rear seal can be done in-car, so there's
no need to do that one unless it _is_ leaking.


He didn't seem to know how the pump could be removed.


If I recall correctly, and yours is anything like mine,
it's four bolts right on the front.

Re: [MBZ] 300 SDL Front Transmssion Pump leaking

2015-07-09 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
Ralph,

I think he was referring to the mechanic.

If you're dropping the transmission, which one would have to do in order to 
check the TC, you would also expect to closely inspect the front (pump) cover 
as its exposed and easy to reach at that time. If there's the slightest hint of 
seepage/leakage, one would expect to replace the pump gaskets and seals. It's a 
quick, easy and inexpensive jib to do under those circumstances.

I would be looking for another mechanic.

Re: [MBZ] Front window scraper remove and install - W123 300TD

2015-07-09 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
Yes, but do it carefully so that you don't bent it. If you do, it could end up 
with a curl in it that makes it tough to get fully seated again.

I highly recommend the use of plastic body filler spreaders/scrapers to get 
under this sort of thing to pry it up. You won't damage the paint that way, and 
with them inserted underneath the trim, if you need more leverage you can use a 
metal tool on top of the plastic scraper, if that makes sense.

On the chassis' mentioned previously, I always started from the back edge 
(strike side) of the door, as the trim was widest and strongest there. This 
made it less likely to bend or distort while pulling up on the trim piece.

 outside. The clips are very, very strong, and you might find yourself 
 pulling the trim up with it, as the clip is clipped to the trim as well.
 
 I liked pulling the trim off, as it allowed me to clean underneath, which 
 is usually horribly messy.
 
 The inner scraper was similarly clipped on to the inner door panel, which 
 you don't have to remove.
 
 Another reason why I liked pulling the trim and inner door panel to do this 
 is that on some occasions you would push the clips down and out of reach 
 when attempting to install the new scraper.

If you're dropping the transmission, which one would have to do in order
to check the TC, you would also expect to closely inspect the front

(pump)

cover as its exposed and easy to reach at that time. If there's the
slightest hint of seepage/leakage, one would expect to replace the pump
gaskets and seals. It's a quick, easy and inexpensive jib to do under

those

circumstances.

younger then my car, so that about did it for me with the M.B. dealer doing
my work.  I have found a Volvo mechanic that does a good job for me but he

I have available here.  When I am in Florida for the winter months, I have

My mechanic here is researching what is involved with replacing the seal

  I have available here.  When I am in Florida for the winter months, I
 have
  lots of M.B. talent available, but not here in N.B. Canada.
  My mechanic here is researching what is involved with replacing the seal
  for this front pump in the transmission, so any advice would help.  I
 know
  the M.B. transmissions are complicated and I am trying to assist him in
  this job.
  Thanks for any help.

  Ralph,
 
  I think he was referring to the mechanic.
 
  If you're dropping the transmission, which one would have to do in
 order
  to check the TC, you would also expect to closely inspect the front
  (pump)
  cover as its exposed and easy to reach at that time. If there's the
  slightest hint of seepage/leakage, one would expect to replace the pump
  gaskets and seals. It's a quick, easy and inexpensive jib to do under
  those
  circumstances.
 
  I would be looking for another mechanic.

  Wow, I sure didn't expect that; being called an idiot!  Sorry I don't
  have
  the experience that you have, but thanks anyway for the nice advice.

  I have transmission fluid leaking from my '87 300 SDL, had a garage
  check
  this out and they identified it was the Torque Converter leaking.
  Replaced
  the seal in the converter, now they state the front trans. pump is
  leaking.  What are they up against Thanks, Ralph,
 
  Idiocy?  It's more-or-less SOP, when dropping the tranny to
  replace a seal, to do all the ones that are now easy to reach.
  Front seal, pump seal, etc.  Maybe even consider engine's
  rear main seal at that time.  They're all staring right
  at you at that point.
