FS: W123 vacuum elements (USED)

I have...

The trunk element
The Fuel door element
The pass. side door element.. (I believe it also works for the rear doors for the sedan)



They are all good.

I bought new ones from Fastlane because I thought mine were leaking. I was wrong... I replaced all of them and my car still couldn't hold vacuum. I never knew what it was... but it fixed itself up.

Anyway... here are the old ones. They are in good condition. In fact I think someone replaced them in the past.
They hold vacuum, no torn diaphrams, and work (I sucked air out of each holes to test)

Since new they cost $85 from fastlane.. let's say $45 take 'em all o.b.o

shipping will be determined based on your location!

payment could be paypal/money order

Thanks

Vacuum problems

Holson,

I don't know if this is appropriate since I've an older 240D but if I leave the a/c selector switch in the on position and leave the car overnight, often there's no vacuum for the other locks. Might try that on yours. The problem might be under the dash.

Yeah I sort of concluded that it was the problem (switching the A/C off keeps the vacuum), so now I just switch it off whenever I leave the car.

Anyway my vacuum leak turned out to be the seatback locking element (one of the two) on the driver's side.
