OVP location on 95 SL500 ?

based on my research here, it seems like I should try replacing my OVP to correct a warm starting problem. Could someone please tell me where it is located in a 1995 SL500 please?

Thanks in advance,

I am sorry to inform you, but your engine does not have the faulty OVP...
I recommend for you to SEARCH for other warm starting problems with your car.

Good luck and I hope you find your problem!

Your car doesn't have a true over-voltage relay like many other MB's. This car has a computer(Base Module) that powers up all of the computers in the CAN under the hood. Hard starting would not be related to this on the SL. Have someone look at the distributor cap area if your car is hard to start but runs good once started.
