Well the first one didn't get much of a response from the brain trust, so I'll try again. Does anyone have any hints, experience, etc. with the high beam flash function of the combination switch. My doesn't flash anymore. If there is something beyond breaking down the column and replacing, pleeaase let me know. I'd rather not mess with the steering column and SRS unless I have to.

Thanks

I assume that you are working on a 124 chassis. If this is the case and all your other headlight functions are in order, the combination switch needs to be replaced. Forget repairing. The cost of the part is not worth having to pull it out again.
BTW follow the proper procedure for disarming the SRS before removing the Airbag. Procedure is located on Right floor panel under floor mat on plastic panel.

BTW, the SRS system has a replacement date, located in the glove box. Mine is also a 87 300 and the replacement date is 2001. It might be a good time for you to replace, especially if the work is a little involved. Just something for you to consider while you are working in that area, especially if you plan on keeping the car! Sorry I can't help with the switch problem.

Deezel, thanks for the info on SRS. My problem car is the '89 300E, but I will check that date anyway.

Deezel, there has been an update for the airbag replacement to fifteen years. For more info do a search as I have already inquired about it on this site.
