Mercedes Startek have done the right thing - to help you do the right thing!

Would you Adam and Eve it?

You can now access the FSM W123 W124 W126 R107 and W201 online via this official Mercedes site

You need to go to http://www.startekinfo.com

Then on the left hand menu click on "MB Workshop Resources"

Then click on the expanding menu underneath

"Service manual library CD/DVD"

Well done Mercedes - you ARE doing your best to help owners of your older products keep their vehicles road worthy and safe.

EDIT:-

This is FREE from Mercedes Benz.

"Error 500: java.lang.NullPointerException"

Could be a Mac thing.

Is a MAC thing - your java isn't compatible... I have the same trouble on Linux

Go to Virtualbox!

EDIT - ignore this - see posts below - could be something else

There might be troubles with the java versions you are running...

The W201 manual works without java

I have the latest Java build. If StarTek did not use proprietary calls to Microsoft APIs I bet it would be fine. But they are choosing to not be compliant.

And its Mac, not MAC. A MAC is a address for networking

The timing couldn't have been better--I was just about to purchase the w123 Cds before this popped up, thanks Army. Unfortunately though, I'm getting a "Java Error" (on an HP) as well, any ideas as to whats required in order to access this?

I think I've got the answer!

Here you go folks

Can you all get to this page?



This is the W123 manual

I've gone through on the W124 and the W126 too and I can get to the next page with the "racing car sound" which then allows you to get to the PDFs

So if you can get this far - ignore java errors and just click on continue

Well I could get to the non Java manual Army posted. But still get an error. I never got that error with the original site, it would just not login properly.

Try disabling java in your browsers and see if you get further.

I'm on a PC (Win XP) at work. No joy with or without Java.

"Server error"
