Question Install instructions for roller blind & front seat cushion stabilizers on 1987 300TD?

I'm looking for installation instructions for the roller blind brackets and hooks so I can install a cargo area roller blind into a 1987 300TDT (W124) wagon. I have looked in the factory service manuals and service updates that I have from 1987 but I can't find anything. I have all of the pieces that came from a dealer but no instructions.

I am also looking for the installation instructions for the front seat cushion stabilizers that slip under the lower leather cushion cover. (I got the part numbers from GSXR's web page.) How are the covers slipped off without damaging them?

I have looked in the factory shop manuals that I have as well as the service updates I have for 1987. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

-Steve

Nope, I'm in the same boat; got all the pieces, but haven't figured out how or where to mount them. I'm fairly certain our MY vehicles are lacking several crucial mounting points in the back of the drivers side seat/platform, and the rear hatch panel.

I thought Dave also posted some pics of him installing those seat bolsters. You might try navigating around there some more.

It's pretty easy to install the seat bolsters...

I just installed the foam pieces in the front seats of my '87, and discovered, after pulling the driver's seat out of the car, that I could do it without all that trouble. I sat on the front edge of the seat to create some slack at the bottom of the seat upholstery. I began working the front, bottom edge of the leather down, until it separated from the metal seat frame. It's only held in place by tension. I took off the right side, working around to about the middle of the front of the seat, until I had a large enough opening to access the inside. Then pushed the piece in, between the two coil springs. Then pulled the upholstery down and put it back into place. Repeated for left bolster. Took about 15 or 20 minutes for one seat. Much nicer feel to the seat now!

I was finally able to get the installation instructions for the cargo area double roller blind. Joe Knight was nice enough to provide them to me. If anyone would like a copy of the roller blind/cargo net installation instructions for the W124 chassis wagons please PM me with your e-mail address and I can send you a copy.

Thanks to all those who posted suggestions as well Dave M. (GSXR) and Joe Knight.
