Hey Robert, long time no post!

Good luck with that, I don't remember anything about the orientation when I
replaced those bushings on my '95.  I do remember that there is one or two
exhaust heat shields that you need to remove in order to get a good attack
angle for those bolts.

 This weekend I will changing out the bushing on my steering idler arm.
 Reviewing the service manual, I thought that the bushing need to be
 installed in a certain orientation, because the bushing themselves have a
 red-band around one portion od the outer diameter. The instructions do not
 mention anything about orienting the bushing when I looked it over.
 Hopefully when I go to remove the old ones, I may see if the same marking
 is on the old ones.

 I will also be changing center rod, right steering link, and the steering
 dampener. Lower ball joints and left steering were replaced ( 2 – 3 ) years
 ago.

 Replacement is probably due, as the car now has 420,000 miles on it!

Re: [MBZ] 1995 E300D Idler arm bushing Change and suspension work/becker radio

2015-06-17 Thread Robert Massmann via Mercedes

Max,

Thank you for the comment, just wanted make sure.

I have been thinking of pulling the radio in my 95 as I have lost the 
antenna command when the radio is turned on. Antenna function was just fine 
and then became intermittent. Pulled the antenna and is working just fine, 
but there is no out put from the radio.  Need to make the special removal 
tool to get the radio out. I may have to break down and install a manual 
switch or command the antenna up and leave it up.


Regards,
