MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 bodywork question Dented front passenger quarter panel

My mother-in-law hit my parked car Grrrr. I checked for quarter panels on car-part.com and found one in my color for 350. Unfortunately they are welded on - not bolted on. So there goes the DIY. Im going to schedule an appt next week with an auto body shop to get an estimate. Before I do that does anyone have any thoughts on how much something like this should cost I dont mind spending my MILs money

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 Uk S Class 99 On Warranty Rusting

Probably a question for UK owners My 2001 S 430L is showing signs of rust on the front arches. I have a full MB service history although the cars has 2 previous owners. Mileage is high at 135000.

Initially he said look mercedes

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS G 463 look on 460 fenders it CAN be done

I spent some time playing with the stock mercedes pieces looking at how to mount them up. I am convinced that you can do it but it will take some bodywork. You will need to cutbend the fender VERY acurately right where it starts to taper under on the front. You would bend the metal to become horizontal and then drill two holes for the fiberglass part to attach too. You would grind off the old bracket

Hi I am a newbie on this forum and I just got this 94 C180 Esprit. The car has a decent condition though needs some adjustments (blower problem) and I would like to give it an updated look. I had a few ideas of how to give them a newer look 1) I was thinking of getting rid of the black stripe on the side which goes over on the bumpers. Is it actually possible to get them painted in the same colour

and some even preferred the C36 AMG bodykit. Though I really prefer the C43s bodykit appearance.

Is it preferrable to get them re-painted or get new ones instead I hope you guys can help me out with some advice since Im a new benz

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS G A question about Gs on the Rubicon

When folks talk about having done the Rubicon in their Gs with mild lift and 33 tires does that mean the WHOLE Rubicon gatekeeper sluices all the hardedst stuff in there And how much driving vs winching Ive never been to the Rubicon and dont really have an interest. But I just wonder how the G compares to other vehicles on the Rubicon and the first thing to know is what is meant when someone says they did a trail. Help me understand. -Dave G.

Dave you could get your car thru but it would be agonizing piling rocks endlessly to avoid rocker damages. I took the LWB in from Tahoe to Rubicon Springs and it took me forever in that car piling endless rocks and still managed to damage her a bit under the sills. Thats when I called Matt to have your sliders made When I got the 280GE cabrio Harald informed me of two other Gs for sale. One was the

Firstly whilst the Merc parts are expensive they do fit the real skill is in dismantling the seams to remove the old panels.and reassebly so it lines up as it should.

intercoolers or more precisely radiator type intercoolers are fitted to the more powerful engines. so with a 638 (upto 2004) the 108cdi and 110cdi generally do NOT have intercoolers but the 112 etc DO have intercoolers. if you buy a 110cdi and remap it you are likely to exceed the power of a 112cdi... this will mean it will run hot and an intercooler must be recommended. there is little difference

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C II 203 Totaled C230 Sportcoupe

Hey everyone as some of you know I was rear ended again on the 12th. The guy hit me going nearly 55MPH and my vehicle was pushed into the vehicle in front of me. So there is some major rear end damage and a decent amount of front end damage. Insurance decided to make the vehicle a total loss instead of doing repairs. I do have the option to buy the vehicle back from them for a little less than 2000

That doesnt seem like a great idea but hey with some backyard bodywork this thing could probably be on the road for another 2k of junkyard parts. A couple of junkyards have C230 coupes in red with good rear clips a couple with good front clips. I wouldnt want to drive it around like that since you can pick up an un-crashed one for 8k if you look around long enough but if he really wanted to do it its possible.

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 1976 450SLC - cost of bodywork What would you do

Worst week ever On my way to catching a plane for a business trip last week I wrecked my 76 450SLC. You may have seen her on ebay a year or so back I snagged her locally (Austin TX) at a fair price and have been loving here ever since. Havent taken her anywhere for estimates to get the full extent of the damage. Before I do just curious from any other SL SLC owners out there - worth it or not Ill

There are several variables that should be looked at first Do you have full coverage insurance on your SLC and how much is it worth to you to keep it are the first things I think of. Depending on parts replacing a fender headlight hood & grille will run from 3000 to 8000. Big range I know but new OE parts are super expnsive for the 107 now. Do you have a replacement car in mind and what will it cost

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 sorry another wheel question

Will the 17 mags from an e500 fit a 638 the offset of 40 is OK but they are 8 rims is that to big Thankyou

cant directly answer yes or no but probably yes with modifications. merc procedure isnt based on book data but on trial as vehicles vary. if youve access to one of the units remove rear wheel and unbolt one end of shock absorber.... fit new wheel and lift from ground to full height... shock should still be in position although not attached... feel for body clearance from wheel to all parts esp shocker....

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS B I 245 Engine compartment paneling

Has any one here had any real world experience with removing and re-installing the black plastic panels on the underside of the engine compartment The WIS instructions say &8220Installation helper required&8221 which makes me think it is a bit of a pain. Will any of the expansion clips need to be replaced once removed thanks

I have only removed the plastic panels from the front bumper to the large ones under the engine. I did not need to replace the expansion clips usually if you are carefull with them they can be reused (dont lose the plastic pins though I have replaced a lost pin with a small self tapping screw in the past). When I was removing the Bumper I seem to remember that it was supposed to be a 2 handed job but

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 Bodywork swap question

Would the front wingsfenders from a 500e fit straight onto a CE of the same year Obviously Ill have to cut and weld the back arches but the fronts going on as a direct replacement would certainly save a lot of time. TIA.

I thought the coupes used specific front fenders and hood but in checking online suppliers I see that the exact same parts are listed for 124 coupes sedans and wagons. So yes the 500E fenders would bolt in to the coupe body.

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 replacing fender on w124 wagon

i recently purchased a 1994 w124 wagon - the first older car i have ever had which i am looking forward to working on and learning from. the right front fender was scraped and subsequently repainted at some point before i bought it and I am thinking about replacing it. some questions for you all i have heard this is a relatively easy job given fenders are bolt-on. can anyone confirm any instructions

What kind of experience have you had with bodywork in general. mercedes cars do bolt up nicely and are a pleasure to work with but replacing a fender can be a bit daunting for the inexperienced DIY. The fender is physically glued onto the inner fender and is a bit of a bear to remove before the replacement can be fitted into place.
