[MBZ] 190D update

2019-08-30 Thread Kaleb C. Striplin via Mercedes
Today I pulled the instrument cluster because the PO had replaced the fuel temp oil gauge with one out of a gasser, so I put the correct one in.  Took car to town to fill it up with fresh diesel and to see if fuel gauge works, it doesn't. I guess I need to pull the sending unit and clean it.

As I said in my post, we have had ours for about 4 years and there has not been any sagging or compression noticed. With our old normal pillow top spring mattress I woke up in pain about every day.  When I go to hotels, which is often, depending on the beds they use I often wake up in pain.
