I am in Melb Australia. I have a 1984 190e . The
previous owner changed the ignition barrel , don't know why. I have
lost the only damn key I had to the ignition, so I don't think going to
MB with chasis number will help me much. I hear the barrels are hard to
replace . Can anyone tell me how I can get the barrel out. I was
thinking on trying to drill the ignition out, bit the racv guy that got
into the car for me tells me they are almost impossible to drill out.
Any feed back appreciated.
Also recently reco'd head and replaced but since I have had what I
believe to be an electrical fault. After the car has been running for
15-20 mins, Yeah before I lost the key, it just cuts out. If I wait
20-30 mins the car will start easily again. Mechanic said sounded like
fuel pump relay, so I replaced but found problem still existed. Had a
guy who proported to be onsite auto elec look told me it was the fan,
then he says he tested ignition module, ok,
then coil ok, distributor, ok, then tells me it was fuel pump.The says
the relay that I had replaced was burn't out. It was obviously he had
shorted something out. I bypassed the relay and it still does the same.
As he took these parts away to be tested they would have cooled off and
may not been in the same condition as when car stops. Any ideas I am
