I replaced the L/R door check in my 80 240D, and it was the older style. first one I had ever seen. maybe something left over from WWII

I replaced it with the newer style check, and it fit right in.

Older style looks like a piece of cast iron compared to the newer style, a piece of stamped sheet metal.

Probably cheaper to manufacture.

The part# my older style has cast in it is, 123 730 00 16. there is one other # K.Au. 2921 and a name FRIEFI stamped into the flats upper and lower from the 123#.

Looking in Fastlane they show the older style, but it is listed for the rear doors part# W0133-1617899. from 000000 - 258174.
How many do you want? they are listed for $104.86

They show the newer style for the rear doors from 258175 but not in stock, and no price.

Iam going to PNP today, 50% off this weekend. there is a 79 280E Iam pulling the old style blue door actuators out of, I`ll see what type checks they used on it.
Also a 77 300D that has a new front door check I want. I`ll see what they installed in the other doors also.

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

80 240D Naturally Exasperated, 4-Spd 388k DD 150mph spedo 3:58 Diff

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works
