300E Gas Guage Precursor to Battery Death (again)

A while back there was a discussion about W124 gas guages jumping around under 1/2 a tank. I observed then that this occurred as my alternator brushes were failing.

It happened again - the guage started jumping around last week and sure enough, the battery gave it up yesterday. Another clue was the intermittent ABS light.

If you see this happening, strongly suggest you check out your battery and alternator!
