How about the W124 CD Service Manual? This is what I use for my car. It is a factory service manual that covers your car and is packed with information, specifications, illustrations, and repair steps. It is available on eBay, or a fellow member can provide a copy for you for consideration.

The server has been strained to bursting point. I suspect this is just a temp action. I've downloaded about 10 files for my car and speeds vary between very slow and 100 kbs.

The UK Haynes version is pretty good and easier to use for most things. Just have to get used to the RHD, and a few extra models. You need the factory CD for more involved stuff though.

For very basic stuff, the 'Bible' is pretty good.

As you all know, I have been on and off selling the CD manuals for the W124 (1986-1995). Well I am down to my last few copies, and after these sell, I will have no more to sell. If anyone is interested in grabbing up one of the last few, my price is $15 shipped to anywhere.

Theses CD are packed with over 2000 files related to the W124.
Files are web linked, and PDF for high quality printing.
Diesel models are also included.
Troubleshooting, repair and maintenance, as well as part numbers are on the CD.

This CD set will pay for itself over and over!

Anyone interested, PM me or email me at
