I've had my SL for many years now (it's a '94), and see no reason to part
with it, as it still runs strong, looks timelessly great, property taxes on
it are low, and the replacement model (R230) looks more like a freakin'
Toyota... er Lexus "cartoon-type" car we all know a "proper" ragtop roadster
Sooo... while still relegating many of the mundane or overly complex tasks
to the local MB dealership, I'd like to get a repair manual (CD or hardcopy)
to help nurse my baby along. Small tasks such as replacing an antenna mast
or trunk-mount brake lamp LEDs, would be immeasurably easier without having
to noodle it out sans-manual every time.
Unfortunately, it seems MB no longer produces hardcopy shop manuals (since
1990?), and a simple CD manual is not to be had (I heard rumors of a $1000
multi-CD set that implemented full PC diagnostics etc, but that's way
overkill for what I want!)
I recently got shnookered for a W129 CD-rom manual on ebay... the seller
disappeared and PayPal eventually agreed to refund the modest amount I "won"
Does anyone here know of a source for a R129 shop manual? (even the
Benzbin.com does not carry them).
