While replacing the interior of my 1969 280 SEL I used the seats from a 1972 model which fit perfectly but with one problem. It feels like the seat is tilted forward a bit much and that you're slowly sliding forward. I'd like to get the seat to tilt back a little, does anyone know if there's an adjustment for this? Will I have to use shims? Say it ain't so.

Take a look at the passenger's side of a W123...These cars came with additional blocks and longer bolts at the front. You can add something like that to prevent you from leaning forwards...(done that with a W201 in the past as well and it worked pretty well).

MBenz,
Thanks for your reply! The W123 body shell corresponds with what years and models? This will give me something specific to look for. Great idea though, I thought I was going to have to fabricate a shim out of something from scratch. As soon as I finish installing the new window channel on all four doors I'll get on it. Thanks again.
Thom

Thom,

I think that you should be able to find these blocks in any W123 (models like the good old 240D) that is produced in the 80s...I don't know how luxurious the US W123 was, but the European seats were all manual adjusted.

greetingz,
