    Thumbs up Mercedes Benz W115 parts query??

    Hi Brothers,

    I have a 1975 (W 115) Mercedes Benz 240D 3.0. The car is in excellent condition engine wise but the body needs work and there are some parts missing like tail lights n grill etc.. I want you guys to help me out in finding the parts of this car or inform me those places where I could find the parts. All the rubber sealings of this car needs to be changed as well. I want to restore this car superbly as it is given to me by my grandfather..
    I will really appreciate your help and INSHALLAH will be posting the pictures of my project too.
    Looking forward to your help..

    Regards.

    Model is 240D, original 3000cc diesel engine with sunroof, 4 speed manual tranny.
    Body shell is pretty much intact just a paint job and some rusty patches

    Nice - you have the 240D 3.0 better known as 300D, pretty nice car - its quite a chore starting it - twist key to on hold the knob till the "salt shaker" glows then pull to start.

    What parts do you require?? i bet you need to overhaul the complete suspension. Be prepared to hear current parts prices, and its absolutely no use installing chinese, thai junk rubber parts.

    You should be. Just got a new blowpipe for my 1991 W201 and it cost me 2000 PKR :O

    Called in for new brake pads and the guy told me it'll cost around 7000 PKR. Your model is quite older so I can imagine the prices the shop will demand for lesser available parts as they have to be "shipped/sourced from elsewhere" :/

    dont judge by smoke only - check the engine compression and make sure that the cooling system is good, when was the transmission fluid changed??? It takes ATF.
