Question Need a repair manual

We just ordered a minivan for my wife. She currently drives an '87 300e. I love that car and don't want to sell it, so I need to find a way to save on some of the repair bills and do it my self.

What is a good repair manual for an '87 300e (W124)? I saw one at Performance for $30 called Mercedes W124. Does anyone have this and is it any good? I can't afford to buy the $150 cd because of the new van....

Try E-Bay, search "Mercedes repair manual".

I got mine for 28 USD from a seller "pcgate", they are selling all kinds of repair manuals for MBs.

Repair Manual

I have that book. It has been somewhat helpful but not as good as the CD or the help here on Mercedesshop. The manual covers many years and engine types so the pictures and descriptions are not always correct for what you have and it can be confusing sometimes. It is better than nothing but saving for the CD would be better. Since I use the computer at work and it is inconvienant to drive back and forth to view the CD I haven't invested in a CD manual yet. I have changed the water pump, serpentine belt, radiator, motor mounts, shift linkage bushings, flex disc, brake rotors and lining all using that manual and this site. Repairs are generally fairly easy and I usually try this site first for the practical view then look in the manual if needed.
