Thanks for checking. GLWTA
Thanks for the reply. In the listing description it says the wheels are staggered. That would mean they have different ET (offset) numbers and different widths from front to back. Can you confirm the same part number on all four wheels is the same? ET57 would be a front wheel, so will not look right on the rear. Very interested in these, but not if all four wheels are the same part number.
Can you confirm that all four wheels have the same part number and offsets?
Could you possibly provide the VIN number of the GLE they came off of?
FYI - This pano top is only for R129 SL's after VIN split F107603, somewhere in the 1995 year I believe. You can tell if you have the later version if your windows drop slightly with the door open, and raise into the gasket after the door is closed. If you use this top on an early 129, I'm pretty sure the windows will hit the gaskets when you close to doors if they are rolled all the way up.
Thanks. Any chance of some photos of those areas? Is there overspray on the gaskets, etc? I tried to zoom in on the available photos but couldn't really see....
Seller, are there any panels that have been painted? Any chance you have access to a paint gauge and can take some pictures?
@Youngclassicamg- thanks for the clarification, appreciate the response
Any further information on the transmission rebuild? What was the failure? What internals were replaced? Was it rebuilt at that shop on the invoice? No mention of fluid/filter replacement, or if transmission module was checked for fluid (common on the 722.6 to push fluid through harness and fill the module). Was this the original transmission to the vehicle, or another unit that was refreshed? A little more info would be helpful, thanks!
@blakleyleonard - Thanks. This system will engage the compressor as it needs during "AUTO" operation. It will also cycle the compressor and "turn on" the A/C anytime the defrost button is pressed, to pull any moisture from the air that is directed towards the windshield to ensure good visibility. You did a fantastic job with the photos and videos for the listing, truly top notch!
@poppys- Sorry for the delay. Yes, been working on MB exclusively for almost 20 years and run my own shop for 15. The W210 had a few common A/C leakpoints. The "Z" shaped line that goes from the receiver drier to the condenser was very common. Also, in much higher mileage cars the condenser would leak behind the auxiliary fan (debris would build up and rub through). In rare cases, the evaporator core would leak, but not nearly as common as the W124. Another tell-tale sign of a low a/c charge on a W210 is a light hissing sound from the dashboard, and cooler vent temperatures on the passenger side versus the drivers. When the system becomes too low on R134a, the N22 climate control module will notice this via the B12 pressure sensor an lock out the a/c compressor and store a code. This code must be cleared after repair or the "EC" light will stay lit. I was assuming that it was just in ECONOMY mode, and that is why the light was on but wanted to make sure. You sure have one of the nicest examples of an early W210 E55 I've seen. Current bid is above my internal reserve, so good luck with the rest of the auction!
The "EC" (economy) button on the climate control push button is illuminated in the pictures with the engine running. This can be indicative of a low A/C charge and locks out the compressor. Was the system actually in economy mode, or is the A/C low? Please advise, thanks!
