the W123 300D Turbodiesel and 240D are some of the easiest cars to work on . The Mercedes engineers thought of us and the mechanics when they designed the thing in the mid 70's...

I have no problem really working on my 300D. All you need is a set of good metric wrenches and sockets, extensions, u joints, maybe a 22mm wrench and a 27mm deep well socket, channel locks and the occasional special tool. plus a hammer, 3 ton jack and jack stands, creeper, and a mity vac
