where is vaccum pump for 300sl and how do you check it
I think its a Mercedes 300sl gullwing
The most recognized- is the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300sl "Gullwing"
The soft top of the 300SL ( W129) is operated by a control unit, not by relays. If you want a can tray find a localization picture of the control unit for the soft top
The 1954 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing is considered by many as the worlds first supercar.
The 129R with the 6 cylinder engine - the 300SL - has a timing chain. Please note also that Mercedes Benz makes a modified tensioner(s) to correct a problem with the chain rubbing on the cover.
The fastest car production in 1950-1959 was the Jaguar D type at 172.8mph. Second is the Mercedes Benz 300sl at 161mph.
I need more information as to what model you have ???190E300CE300D300E300SD300SE300SL300TE400E400SE500E500SEL500SL600SEL
"My earliest memory of a car is a Jaguar XK120 racing a Mercedes-Benz 300SL", he once said. So i guess it might have been one of those cars.
I have a 1993 300sl and the battery is in the trunk on the passenger side. There is a knob that has to be twisted out and the wll of the trunk should pop out revealing a car battery. Its not that hard. Hope this helps.
The '91 used R-12. You need to buy the converters from Mercedes because the universal connectors are usually too small. The Mercedes converters are cheap. You can gety them from any Mercedes dealership. Make sure you vac out the system before you add R-134. Another good idea is to change the dryer and expansion valve before recharging the system.
Try this dont listen to people who say to old or get it for free when its not.. Here is a truly free sdchematic with stereos also http://mercedes-benz-club.org/forum/manuals/w126/Mercedes_300SE_1991.pdf If you want to know something ask ME

I bought a 1992 300SL and the seats were so hard that I thought something was wrong. So I went to a showroom and sat in the seat of a 1998 500SL, same hard seats. To remedy the problem I had my upholstery specialist take my seats apart and replace the German horsehair/hard rubber fabric with modern foam rubber. The seats are much more comfortable now but not as comfortable as my Volvo. The Volvo also has cup holders, the Mercedes does not, which helps understand the hard seats.
i have the same car with the same probem but my key turns
If the fluid level is OK and does not smell burned and the shift lever works the transmission may need to looked at by a repair place.

When a 300 SL Benz will run fine put when in park it cut off it can only mean one thing. It usually mean that the oxygen sensor has gone bad. A oxygen sensor can be bought at any auto parts store.
Rarest cars to buy all from 1 to 10 million dollars----Porsche 916--Talbot LGO Grand Sport--Mercedes 300SL Aston Martin Bulldog Tucker 1948 Packard Panther 1969 ZLI Camero The up and coming Collectable that is fairly easy to buy right now is the Reatta! If Anyone has a 1990 Buick Reatta under 100k miles can get 30,000 dollars in the right condition. And by 2025 the Reatta will be worth over 200,000 dollars,While some clueless owners are selling them today under 7 and 5k !!!! (hand made cars only 17k ever made 30mpg /137 MPH) can drive over 500k miles without a problem.
Remember always start with the cheapest solution, in this case a/c fuse. Happened to me. Find the drier, behind drivers side headlight. Its a black cylinder with the refrigerant lines going in and out. Take the wires (they are black, 90 degree angle) off the drier switch (larger sensor at top of drier) and jump them with paper clip to see if compressor will engage. If so, switch may be bad. Also, inside of footwell, under the steering wheel area, drivers side, the evaporator temp sensor could have gone bad. You will have to remove under steering wheel cover to access temp sensor. If faulty, will not let the compressor engage. Likely cause, pressure switch.

Initially, I didn't think anything would happen as your battery duked it out with the grounding strap, sparking and heating up. I did a little research and found that people who switched the battery cables blew their ECU's and relays, or anything with a diode in it. Maybe it reversed the polarity in the rest of the car. If the rest of your car is okay, the engine starts, radio plays, etc., then I would check the convertible motor. Check the wire with a testor to see if it's getting juice to the motor. No juice, check the relay in the fuse box. Juice going to and from the relay, check the switch on the console.
A 1993 MB SL has 2 tops. 1: The canvas top stays in the boot. 2: The hard top can be removed from the car. There is a big button on the center console, to the rear of the shifter. Accessing this button will unlock the hard top, allowing you to hoist the top off of the car. You will need either an optional hoisting device, with a block and tackle to lift the top off the car, or two, reasonably strong men to lift the top straight up, then walk it to the rear of the car. Its not that heavy of a top, its bulky. Make sure the antenna mast is all the way down, otherwise you'll snag or break the mast. You might also want to put a towel or mat down on the trunk lid to prevent any damage which can occur when you move this bulky top After you remove the hard top, use the same big button on the center console to activate the top, either up or down. This is a fully automated set up, and should take less than 20 seconds from start to finish to take up or down. You might want to take some WD40 to the top's hinges just to make things run smoother. The mechanics and soft top are very expensive items which need TLC and maintenance if you want them to last and work properly. Avoid using harsh detergents on the canvas top. Those chemicals in harsh soap will make the canvas brittle and subject to tears. DM
