Smile 300 SD Questions

I'm picking up an '82 300SD this week and am wondering if a windshield and dashboard from a 1980-85 300td will fit the SD.

Also, the SD has been sitting since 2000 and the front tranny seal ('course it had to be the front seal) is leaking badly enough that I'm trailering the SD home. Can the seal be renewed with some ATF or do I have to replace it?

Thanks

You can try to renew the seal with ATF additive, but generally you are much better served by replacing the seal. While you are at it, and since you have to have the tranny out of the car, may not be a bad idea to replace all the seals at the same time. You can also check the condition of the valve body, oil pump, clutch packs and the bands.

The 123 dash will not fit the 126.
