280S 1979 116 body vacuum

Hi all,
I cannot find where a vacuum tank is located in this car, that is the source of stored vacuum for central locking. Any pointers on main causes of failure of vacuum will be much appreciated.

Thanks

Ed

Did you check under the R. front fender, right near the windshield pillar? Oh, also check the lock solenoids first if the vac. resevoir checks out ok.

:p

There's also a flat pancake vacuum tank upper left corner of the trunk by the gas tank cover. Check sometimes vacuum line comes out.
