I don't think it's a problem. Seen it before, and it's usually attributable to the idle speed running a little high. Doesn't take much more than an extra 100 rpm for oil pressure to peg on a good...

I installed a pair of check straps out of a 114 sedan on our coupe. Still working well 8 years later. The parts were identical.

Replaced one on my '79 W123 with one from the dealer. It broke...

One more disaster scenario that caught me when I replaced a UCA on a W123: the worst case is that the torsion bar end is rusted away, and the control arm can't be reattached. That could be a...

First thing I'd try is check the thermostat. It has to come out to do a good flush anyway. Unfortunately, that procedure is a bit involved on a W115.

This is important. Unless the system has been updated, the glow plugs are in series. One bad one means no light and no glow.


Aside from push starting, this is pretty much the only option if...

It's a release agent used in the molding process. Most likely just cornstarch.
I usually try to rinse off as much as possible, but it doesn't hurt anything.

Your '83 240D did before it received the turbo engine. I've never seen a 240D with a manual transmission that didn't have one.

I've had good luck applying straight vegetable oil and letting is sit for a bit. It doesn't lift the adhesive, but it dissolves it to the point where it comes off easily with dish soap.

Don't do that unless your car is already a total beater. Google this part number: 001-988-20-81. The correct way to put that trim back on will be cheaper and faster than messing with an adhesive.

My frame of reference is an older style W114 coupe, so the trims are a bit different. Therefore you should take this with a little bit of caution.

The 1 meter pieces are the correct extrusion, but they're just 1 meter pieces. They sell "by the meter". It's not clear that you can buy a piece that's say, 2.5...
