Question universal joint for 85 300 CD

Well, here we go again. The universal joint needs replacing on my 85 CD. As usual MB, instead of making a yoke with c-clips or bolts has staked the u-joint in. Tried to find replacement joint online, MB, local auto parts store, no luck. Some one must make a replacement joint. One guy in the tech forum said he got the joint from NAPA but I can't find a listing for it. Anybody got a manufacturer and Part #?

If you search, I remember long ago hearing about someone from here using one from a Ford Fairmont (or Fairlane, I can't remember). I believe it took a bit of surgery, but it worked...

I had these guys shorten my driveshaft when I put the turbo engine in my 240D. They installed a rebuildable U-joint as part of the work.

************** is overpriced junk, and on top of that they don't even sell U-joints.

No advertising!

I bought the hardline to the ALDA from them. $24 plu$ thier $hipping charge$.

Then I found the same material at my local hardware store. It was 15 cents a foot.

I will buy nothing from Mercede$ $ource unless they are the ONLY place to get a needed part.

Are you sure it`s your U-Joint? It might just be your center support or the bearing.

I thought mine was bad, but it turned out to be the bearing.

I have 338000 on my drive line and original U-Joint.

How many miles do you have on your CD?

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

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
