My '94 SL recently developed a groan when the driver's door was opened or
closed (arrrgh!)... the cause: broken ear tangs on the door-check assembly.
Rather than confront an expen$ive repair bill from MB, I decided to try
tackling the problem myself (I was a gearhead in an early part of my life,
but remain a thrifty Scotsman throughout my whole life :o)
Several postings could be found on the net which listed procedures for
dissecting an R129 door (ouch!), but I could not find any that were
illustrated (old farts like me need visuals to guide us! :o) I thought I'd
put my own spin on it and took a few pics along the way so as to spare
others the angst of muddling about if they are confronted with similar
door-surgery (or speaker replacement, or...):
Here's to helping each other save a few bucks and knuckles!
