W210? or W201? I think you mean 201, right?

I was kind of concerned, if tool rental would possibly be an option? Some of the tasks to be efficient specifically require designated tools.

Is this for your 201 or something else?

I meant both actually, we just finished a bunch of articles for the W210 and were looking for the next project car right now. We are considering the 201 and 202 however that may change depending on the feedback we get from you guys.

A whole set of articles could be generated just by focusing on worn out rubber parts. Engine mounts, control arm bushings, rear subframe mounts, driveshaft flex discs, etc.

Rear diff repairs like replacing leaking seals. Rear wheel bearings. Just throwin out some ideas, some of these may already be covered.

Purchased W201

We are picking up a 201 tomorrow afternoon and will start working on the DIY articles. Do you guys like written DIY articles with pics or do you prefer DIY Video? Both are an option as well.

W201 Project car arrives (Pictures)

Here are a few pictures of the car, was a 120 mile trip to get the car here. It has a charging problem currently however I was the told the alternator has already been changes so perhaps a draw somewhere, we'll figure it out. Funny thing was the car literally stalled right when I backed into the parking space so timing could not have been more perfect.

It's in really good condition overall, the owner took good care of it. Here are a few pictures.

Removing interior trim and door panels

Hi, I would appreciate it if you would post a DIY for removing W201 interior door trim panels without damage... so many times these older cars need attention for door lock vacuum issues and door check issues, but you have to get the panel off properly first.

Thanks,

Kurt

I haven't seen anything about the door panels. I tried to order some from Mercedes (thru parts.com) once.. NLA

The ones in my 93 190E are coming off themselves. I'm told MB used crappy components.
The panels are still available. Just go into your nearest dealership. I also see them coming up on XXXX, under body hardware.

Here is a great writeup on W201 climate control troubleshooting for those that asked: Troubleshooting Mercedes-Benz 190 E/D 201 Tempmatic Climate Control System - Benzworld.org - Mercedes-Benz Discussion Forum

Personally, I would love a write up on how to replace the Valve Stems on my W201 190D 2.2 , I have the factory tool just not that sure how to do it even after reading the FSM.
