W108 Tool Roll

I found this roll of tools in the trunk of my Ď69 280S. Are there any glaring omissions? There arenít any tools in the little pockets on upper flap. Thanks.

Here is an original tool bag from a 1972 280 SE 4.5 that has been in my family since new and was only recently unwrapped from the original plastic cover for the purpose of this picture.

I don't recognize the flat piece of steel next to the screwdriver.
What is that used for?

I want to know that also. Doesn't look right to me. I also would like to know about the thing on the far left that looks like a long socket extension.

Looks like a tire pry bar of some sort, don't think that's standard issue.

That is an old hubcap removal tool that I added to the picture to see if anyone was really paying attention. Congratulations, but it did take a week for the "eagle eyes" to chime in. Everything else is original to the tool roll.

Not exactly a "long socket extension," but Mercedes-Benz 000 581 3501, made by Matador. One end is an 11 mm male hexagonal bit and the other end is a 10 mm hexagonal socket. Overall length is 8 3/4". I'll leave it to you and the other "eagle eyes" to divine its intended use.

With regard to the flat metal piece, it is not an M-B hub cap removal tool, but something from an American car, the exact make of which is long forgotten.
It even has instructions for its use stamped into one of the wide sides.

Man, I spent a solid week tearing my garage apart looking for that mystery tool for my 280S tool roll!

Not really, (not that ambitious), but I sure had an eye out for it!

No guesses as to why 000 581 3501 is included in the tool kit?

Healthy attitude with an honest reply. It's refreshing not to have to wade through PC.
