Price check 124D Turbo

Hi All,

After many happy years of dieseldom I'm probably going to sell my 124 and wanted to get a better handle on fair value. I realize these are priced all over the place but the more input I...

You need to recharge the system with dye. When it leaks you'll see the dye and will know what needs fixing. There is dye that is specifically made for this use.

My reverse lights aren't going on. The lights will go on if I wiggle the shift lever in "R" and all else looks OK so it must be the switch. I wouldn't really care except I believe...
