I love the shocked look on people's face when the arm is right next to their head.

I'm not too mech. inclinded to pull the interior apart to try and fix things. I'd love to find a wrecked '88 CE and pull the guts out for the passenger side. I dickered around with a guy here selling one from an '89 iirc some time ago but the part #'s were different. I wasn't willing to buy it unless discounted so I passed. I don't have much on the passenger side, including the retractor. SB kind of just hangs there.

Question to ask: Are all the CE presenters the same on the W124s regardless of different #s? Would an 89 or 90 or up fit and operate in an 88? (1988 was the first year of the US coupe).

I tried placing it in a bag. That didn't work. There was one incident where my car was parked in a driving rain, and the people picnicking nearby told me the seat belt presenters were going crazy. I quickly removed the rear seat, disconnected the module, and shook the water out of it as best as I could. I never put it back in. It's available for the next guy should I ever decide to sell the car.

I did spray the electronics within the control unit generously to coat them with lacquer. I would recommend anyone with a working unit to do so, if it hasn't yet corroded. The only trick is to make sure to mask off the relays. They are the only moving parts.

The part number for my control unit is 140 820 25 26.
