What a coincidence this thread came up, yesterday me and a member on Benz World pulled one of these metal cased antennas out of a 81 280E. thing looked brand new. car looked to have been always garaged.

we put power to it through the plug wires, and would not respond, finally with the cover off and taking the mast apart and pulling out the cable, got the motor to run ea way.
then fished the cable back in, and the motor wound the cabe in. after this the relay started to click.

so just left it there. probably something simple, but Iam not good with electrical things.

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
