The Servo Gods Have Heard Your Prayers:

Verily I say unto thee, 1980SD, that the Servo Gods have heard your cries and unto you, this day, do we impart knowledge.

Cast not thine servo against the rocks and be not drunk with wine, for redemption is at hand. But heed these warnings.

Woe unto he who opens the sacred servo!!!! Turn your eyes from it!!!! Be not taken by its inner workings and listen not to its song as it parketh, lest ye be driven to madness.

Take heed, O mortal. The oracle has been given unto thee. Stray not from the path that has been laid before you. Cast not rolls of wire from thine system and leaveth no fittings unplugged.

Surely cool air shall flow forth from thine vents again....



















I am not a Servo God, just one of the prophets. Hope this helps you out....Robert

Nice, though it doesn't apply to my vehicle. My monovalve (in the '83) is a bit iffy. When it goes out I'll probably do the ball valve thing. Right now the problem is the blower. It only works occasionally after a hard right turn on a bumpy road. I really should fix that.

Nay though thou hast posteth the word of the servo gods, these gods dost continue to baffle the living shasbut out of thine humble servants who, having rebuilt thyne hideously complex system, now doth curse thou Mercedes engineers who putteth a servo to lieth next to a compression ignition motor that vibrateth said servo to death, for yay though the words be written on paper, thine servant still knoweth not his butt from a tree stump.

Here endeth the lesson.

woe unto whosoever directly readeth the message of the servo gods. your eyes shall dry up and be as sack cloth, your ears shall ring unto the night.
all who cast their eyes unto the message of the servo gods shall have their mind rendered blank, and their mouth to be caused never again to speak.

Now I have a headache and a sharp pain in my groin...

I've printed out about 1000 pages of stuff and I'm putting it in binders. 4 binders. A yellow/black one, a yellow one, a purple one and a black one.

Does it matter which color binder you put the Vacuum system schematic in? I'm going to try it out with the yellow one.

As soon as I'm done I'm going to test the system and see if this fixed it...

I have a metal clipboard but I'm thinking about changing to wood and see if it helps.

Hey on my wagon, nothing worked until I installed the battery hold downs. Man those w123 hold-downs are pricey at the dealer, but they sure do make the defrost work purdy.



I plan to reorient the car to a new point on the compass, over the weekend. I expect the servo will spring to life at that point and my suspension will immediately level out properly.

I cannot believe that I drove my w116 for eight years and all I ever had to do, to the cc system, was install a new pushbutton panel. Wow I had NO idea how good I had it....

metal or wood is fine, the servo gods accept sacrifices in those two forms. best response is from stone tablets though.
I find that holding my tongue between my two front teeth, with the tip touching the cleft of my chin makes the climate control behave best.

You were lucky indeed. If you install the panel improperly your left rear tire will go flat and your brake lights will burn out.


The scrolls are in German...

What is the meaning of this symbol? I have it on my clipboard. (Saving for a lab jacket.)



The secret is in THE VACUUM DIAGRAM.
