MB Tech Manuals from MBUSA

----------------------------------------------------------------

I mentioned, in an earlier post, the availability of technical manuals for a very reasonable price from MBUSA. I got the service manual cds for my 1987 300SDL from them, and it cost $19.99 plus shipping, as opposed to the $120 I forked over to PerformanceProducts for the cds I got for the 1987 300DT.

I just received an email requesting help in locating these manuals on MBs site, and it is somewhat convoluted.
I am posting the information here, as well as a direct response to the individual who queried me.
To find the manuals for your car:

Go to:
:EDIT: Outdated data removed.

In addition to the Service Manuals, many members may find the Owners Manuals and Illustrated Parts Manuals useful...

I hope this is useful (maybe put in a sticky?)


:EDIT:
The following data is new to this post

Go to the MBUSA website:

http://www.mbusa.com/index.do

move your cursor over the "Service & Parts" left lower corner, and click.

move to the left column and you will see a list, "Accessories", "STAR TekInfo", "Maintenance Manuals", "Owners Manuals", just select and click ...

Newer model vehicle DVD only.

STAR Service Manual Libraries on CD and DVD

W140 chassis is more $$$ as it is a 2 DVD set

Hi Hunter!
Do these service manuals cover automatic transmission repair
procedures and electricial-troubleshooting & schematics?
[What I gues I mean to say is "Are these authentic and
complete service manuals, like the ones the guys working the
line use at the M.B. dealership"]?

I bought a cd from ebay for my 107 and it's good except there
is no automatic section. Of course that is the component that
has failed me most, [in the past and now again at this time].

Thanks!
Stan M.

You had me merrily off to the MBUSA site for a new manual. Imagine my disappointment when I saw all those models offered and no mention of the R129 500 SL anywhere. I thought I had a classic there for a moment. Do you have other sources?

Hello Mike Miller
Sorry, it is new data, not on the website yet.
You need to call MBUSA 1-800-367-6372 to order the R129 500SL DVD.

:EDIT:
"Mike", Thank you for the E-mail followup.
R129 is not on the cheap list.
$75.00 for the DVD

There is newer material available through MBUSA.

MBUSA > Classic on line lookup material ends at model year 1995.
You need to call MBUSA 1-800-367-6372 and ask them.
There is newer material available, however it is on DVD at a higher cost than the older classic data.

***************************************************
Dear Mr. Hunter,

Thank you for your interest in Mercedes-Benz USA.
We apologize for the delay in our response.

The CD-ROM includes technical information designed to repair one's car, it is not in a "how-to" format.

The Star Classic CD-ROM does not cover vehicle transmission.

The CD-ROM is not returnable and is compatible with an IBM computer system.

You may order this CD-ROM by calling 1-800-FOR-MERCedes with your address and credit card information or by calling an authorized Mercedes-Benz
dealer.

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Willard

I see they have the service manual for the W123.

Would you know if this is the same servide manual that skinnerbox.steaky has online? If so, that is the one I would like to get.

$20.00 is a great price!

This link may work:

Mercedes-Benz Classic Home - Classic - Classic Center

It looks like we're not "Classic" unless 1995 or older...

Online manuals.....

Howdy all,

I use these folks......they aren't official "Benz folks....but their info is useful, correct, and in my opinion a subscription is well worth the cost.....$24.99 for the first vehicle and $15.99 for each additional vehicle...per year.....

http://www.alldatadiy.com/

They have most of the stuff in shop manuals, but not a bunch of "body" info. They do give you the proper part # from nice exploded views, and they give a difficulty rating for the job, as well as the cost of the part at the dealer, and the cost of the repair at the dealership.

The website is designed for the do-it-yourselfer......

Hope that this helps.....

SB

DaimlerChrysler makes EPC available online

The EPC (Electronic Parts Catalogue) is now officially and legitimately available online from DaimlerChrysler's own website. The subscription cost is a mere 15euros per annum (about US$18) (i.e. about the same as an almost unworkable and out-of-date Ebay pirate copy). The EPC works in Java. It includes everything the dealer has, except prices and I believe these are coming soon. It particularly gives the ability to search and screen by chassis number and special order codes.

EPC-net Online

The website opens in German, but the language can be set to English (or one of four others) using the drop down menu in the top right corner.

Yes, but it is in Russian and it is not very good. Try the DC one: it's worth every cent of 15euros.

USA is NOT in the list of supported countries.

I believe we're required to use StarTekInfo.
