Arcijack,

Was that the square base pump?

You have to be quite liberal with the sealant/glue to keep water out. Any seepage of water under the seal will lead to mucho rust shenanigans :o

The boot lid can remain in place. It's not a hard job, but do make sure the entire surface is glued in, and pay special attention at the top corners.

The glue that MB sell for this job is indeed Teroson SB2444 / Terokal 2444. Official part number A000989927109, but you can buy it half-price in normal retail.

That is the same adhesive I have used on Hood pads. For the trunk seal, I used regular autoparts store 3m Black super weatherstip adhesive: https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/3M-Black-Super-Weatherstrip-Adhesive/?N=5002385+3292908126&rt=rud

Do small sections at a time, a few inches, then apply more adhesive. The stuff dries quick and is an absolute mess to work with. Not for use on hot days adhesive will run everywhere. Slow and steady wins this race. Also take some sand paper and rough up the seal on the side that attaches to the chassis. It allows the sealant to adhere, otherwise it will peel right off. Study the current seal that is on there, and match your new seal up.

The boot lid can remain on, it was not in the way for me.

Evening all

I'm just about to embark on the first mini job on my newly acquired 450SE. Fortunately the previous owner purchased the seal but didn't get around to replacing it.

Is it correct that the boot lid has to be removed before the seal can be inserted?

I've also found this glue to use:

Appreciate some advice.

Alright, I know I’ve asked before, but for the life of me, I cannot source the parking pawl linkage for my 1979 Mercedes 300SD Transmission. I’ve included a picture of it below. I have searched the yards here in Phoenix. Only yard that might have what I need is boarded up.  :-[

Mercedes Classic Center sent me a different linkage, and all metal linkage missing that plastic piece at the top that pushes the pawl over into the cog. I’m frustrated to no end.

Anyone have one or know where to source it, or even have a part number for this piece?

Thanks
John
Looks like items 80, 83 and 86 in the attached parts catalog;

80 = A 115 270 06 65  - LINKAGE PARKING INTERLOCK
83 = A 115 990 21 40 - WASHER PARKING INTERLOCK
86 = A 115 278 05 71 - ROLLER PARKING INTERLOCK

Item 83 is listed as NLA at MBoemparts.com (my favorite online MB dealership parts webstore)
The classic center might have the washer

Hi John

I just bought a 300SD parts car.  Excuse my ignorance but where would this pawl be found?

Easy to get to?

I run Falken Sincera on the 6.9. Not great but not bad for occasional use. 15 inch is the logical upgrade as the choices open up dramatically.
