Mechanicals / New radiator
« Last post by Janse on 04 September 2019, 11:35 PM »
Are there any differences between the radiator on a manual and automatic transmission 280S? I have come over a new one, but it is for an automatic. Will it fit?

A light dab of silicone grease on the tabs makes life a lot easier as well.  From memory this is a tough one, but also you need to do this with the backrest removed if I recall, it is very tough to get that panel in place with the seatback in there.

I will give this another try, sounds similar to what we were attempting just could not get that tab to catch.  TY!

Make sure the 3 spring clips are attached to the panel. Make sure the screw at the bottom is removed. You should be able to start the bottom clip and then swing the panel back and engage the other 2 clips, pushing the panel flat and back at the same time.

Thanks for that. It all looks very good - full marks. Is under the dash also carpeted?

It is, yes. The panels were carpeted from factory.

the piece that the seat belt feeds into, it has three tabs & screw and for the life of me (and the wife) we cannot get all three to catch and seat correctly.  cant only get two of them and so the piece hangs out closest to the door.  Checked youtube and interweb without any luck.  About to take it to a Upholstery shop.  TIA

Yes, front windshield mouldings! - they also have the right and left pieces.  I just ordered these.
