How do you get the console off a Mercedes-Benz 190-Series to replace the heater core or inspect the O rings for leakage?

I havn't done the heater core specifically, but I can walk you through on how to get the dash off.

Part 1. center console

1. Remove cigarette tray by angling the dish up and out at a 45 degree angle.

2. There should now be two Phillips head screws visible below where the removable tray was...remove them.

3. Slide the rest of the tray and cigarett lighter out, and unplug the lighter. (PS you might want to unplug the batt.)

4. Now you should have two more Phillips head screws visible below where the tray was, remove these also.

5. remove the swivel vents. (be very careful as they are fragile, I use needle nose pliers and very firmly yet gently release one side at a time for each vent)

6. Remove these screws that become visible

7. unplug radio and remove. (on an 86, to remove the wood plate below the radio, pull straight down and then out once the hooks are clear)

8. slide forward air-con unit and unplug

9. now the center console should be able to come out. you have to slide the bottom out first.

10. un plug fan control and completely remove center console.

Part 2 steering wheel and instrument cluster.

1. To remove the steering wheel, first make sure the batt. is detached so that when SRS is detached, it does not set off (have heard that having batt conected can cause this, not sure if its true, but play it safe)

2. There are two screws needed to be loosened to remove SRS. They are located on the back of steering wheel. cant recall the size, but i remember it was a star bit.

3. use Allen wrench to remove steering wheel center bolt. Wheel now slides straight off. (when putting it back on, i just slid the wheel on and when for a short drive down my road, which happens to be perfectly straight, and i made adjustments for alighment.)

4. Now the inst. cluster for this you need two special hooks. look in star magazine or other places where they sell mb parts.

slide hooks in on diaganols of cluster and hook the plate.

5. slide a ruler in the dead center of the top to unlatch the securing tab.

6. Use wiggling to pull out cluster w/ hooks.

7. Unplug connectors ( if your speedo cable is not very long like mine, yo will have to remove all foot well panels and reach up andfeel for the cable and disconnect it)

Part 3 The actuall Dash.

1. start by removing all foot well panesl so that the bolts can be accessed

(don't forget the plastic black trim that goes right below the steering wheel)

2. pop out sunroof switches adn disconnect

3. remove speaker grills

4. Remove the six (or seven) major bolts holding dash in place. They are located under the speaker grills, under the plastic black trim, on inside of doors, and underneath the trim located beneath the glove box.

5. remove the B pillar covors, (just clips)

6. now unplug the center air vent deflector (the thing that regulates air flow in the center vents. to do this there is a small Allen wrech nut inside the switch....disconnect it.)

7. remove glove box interior (remove vanity light and undo clips)

8. unplug the vent connectors for the outside vents (just pop off)

9. Pull out the dash, i found this to be easies using, first of all, two people, and starting with the pass. side of the car.

Have fun putting this all back together.

I found that to just take the dash off, it took me about 8 hours

good luck, and remember, MB designed all of their parts to come off, don't force anything

You have it spelled correctly. It's leakage.

when the DC current flows through the capacitor .the leakage of the charges is in capacitor called Dc leakage capacitor .

The plural form for the noun leakage is leakages.

Seat leakage is defined as leakage that is internal to a valve-between the inlet and outlet sides of the valve-when the valve is in its closed position. It is not limited to leakage across the valve seat, but also encompasses all leakage across the valve trim when the valve is in the closed position. Leakage across internal trim seals, such as piston rings, and across trim-to-body seals, such as gaskets, can be counted as seat leakage. It is important to note that, while leakage through valve stem packing is of growing concern in the industry, governing industry standards address this type of leakage separately and do not consider it to be a form of seat leakage.

The union gas leakage held in 1984

You need a tool called a cylinder leakage tester. You remove the spark plugs and rocker arms, install the tool, and pressurize the cylinders to check for damaged valves.The other options are to install a new timing belt and try to start the engine, or remove the head and visually inspect.You need a tool called a cylinder leakage tester.

by measuring the insulation resistance then by usig the formula for finding leakage current leakage current =voltage applied /resistance measured by megger.

Inspect every connection in the lines for leakage by the accumulation of dust soaked in oil. Any A/C leak will generally leak oil as well and if you don't degrease your engine every week there will be dust stuck to the oil leak.

The best way to find out where the leak is coming from is to inspect/observe, if possible. As far as what parts could be the culprit, there's the brake master cylinder, a hydraulic brake hose, or a brake caliper.

For sump leakage its a mainly damage of cement plasting or crack of sump wall we can use water Prof pint and avoid the water leakage in sump

The current of the minority charges (collector region) is the source of the leakage current. At higher temperature, this leakage current increases due to increase in thermal energy.

1. Electrolyte leakage by corrosion of package, not good packing 2. Electricity leakage by electronic conduction through separators, intended for preventing such leakage and permit only battery outside conduction caused by protrusions that wound the separators which are very thin

leakage resistance of a resister is type of fault which occurs at a specific voltage across the resister which are undertesting.

Electrical leakage does waste electricity. Any current that does not do useful work is wasted.

Yes, there can be lactation leakage at 22 weeks, especially if a first pregnancy.

In low voltage and electronics Leakage Current is any current that flows when the ideal current

brake leakage? or vacuum assisted vacuum leak?
