Mercedes made a change in the upper strut mount.

1st version up to Aug 82. the picture in my FSM shows it with a regular bolt head.

2nd version starting Sept 82. then the bolt head had the stupid 5mm hole.

MB changed the upper rubber mounts and looks like they changed the sheet metal design by the drawing.

I tried to pull a good set of Struts off a 85 300TD in PNP, and both sides rounded out.

I think if I had one of these 2nd version cars, I would weld a nut on the head of the hex head bolt.
You would have thought MB would have made it a 8 or 10mm bolt.

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
