where do you get ruuber seals?

I just picked up a 1982 300SD for $400...The windshiled is cracked and leaking and the back glass has seperated laminate in the corners like a lot of them do...The interior has some moisture problems and it sat for about a year!

I want to buy the seals for the front/rear glass as well as a seal kit for the sunroof, but I am not sure where I can order them from.

thanks in advance

*replaced the battery and fuel filter along with some Sea foam in the new filter..turned the key and the bottom panel lights worked___Started right up~ You gotta love these cars...

The intererior lights come on and the door buzzer works...BUT the headlight switch is FROZE (oxidized I'm sure), no brake lights, and the sunroof only creeps back about 2"...Guess I will be learning how do fix sunroofs now as I need to put a new seal in it.
NOT sure about the gages yet! fuel gage was showing 3/4 after I added 5 gallons of fresh fuel...Temp gage never rose, no oil pressure registering, a/c panel is a little buggered up as well...HOPEFULLY the speedometer and odometer will work...GOTTA work out the bugs...My son is getting his license on Thursday and he likes the car...WHITE with NAVY interior! It has forward and reverse along with working brakes! NOT sure how it shifts yet...

Well you do have a project on your hands. it can all be worked out with time and money.
I don`t know if you have any Pick N Pull type yards near you, but they can be a real source for good parts. especially since Obama decided a lot of good cars needed to be junked. there are a lot of nice W126 in these yards for parts. they don`t last long before they are crushed.

for the gaskets, I would give Phill a call in the buy parts tab above. yuou will get quality and the right parts.

as for the back glass with the delaminate problem , again PNP. think one is around $45. pull the "C" piller panels off to expose the defrost connections on each side. then cut the rubber from the inside and push it out with trim and all.

the sun roof is 3 pieces. two side felts, one on the rear of the lid. have to remove lid to replace it. and the one across the front. this one is a bugger to replace. but dooable, been their. lot less hair now .

fuel gauge could be the sending unit. need to pull it out and clean the gunk out of it. there is a DIY pictorial for doing it. might be for a 123 but is the same.

oil gauge might be the electric sender on the bottom of the oil filter housing, or maybe the wire came off.

temp gauge might be the temp sensor on the left side of the engine between the 2nd and 3rd injector I think.

Might be a good idea to pull the fuses and clean all the connections and clean off the ends of the fuses, or just replace them all with the copper ones. the aluminium ones seem to corrode.

this will be a good project for you son to learn on, and a safe car for him to drive. there is plenty of help here on the forum. get him on line here, and the experts will walk him through things.

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
