Go to your local library and ask them if they have a service manuel for your particular car if they dont have they can get through inner library loan. When ever I need to work on a car in which I have never worked the first place I go is our library. I hope this helps

SOURCE: How to enter unlocking code in Becker Grand Prix radio

hello I',m an M.B. tech. These becker radios can be difficult if the wrong code is entered( i believe 3 times ina row) and go into security lock. if you enter code and it does not work remove radio and get serial number of and call dealer. The way you enter 4 digit code is by entering the number with the station program keys on the top of the face plate . then after code is entered you press the * symbol and it should start working. There is a becker web site that can also assist you with radio problems it is www.beckerautosound.com . good luck

SOURCE: i want to know how to take the interior door

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls.

Battery light is on when idleing, but when i accelerate battery light goes out


Two things can make the bat light come on at idle but go off above idle.
The belt could be slipping because it is not tight, or glazed, or the alternator could be defective.
Once the engine starts, the alternator should be making enough current to "turn the light off". The light is grounded thru the alternator until it is charging, which reverses that circuit and kills the ground source for the light.
If you are sure the belt is ok, I would have the alternator bench tested, because usually if the belt is slipping it slips more at higher speeds.

1989 Mercedes 560 sel, w126, Car will start and idle fine for 10 min. then stall and will not restart until next morning...


catalytic converter is clogged basically its stopping up your exhaust. Over time the pressure will slowly vent out, allowing your car to start, only to build up the backpressure again, stalling engine.

1989 mercedes sel 300 electrical problem? It wont stay running


Get the battery & the alternator checked (Autozone, O'reilly's or even Pep Boys can do that for free). If the alternator is out or going out, it's not charging your battery - that means everything electrical in your car is now trying to run directly off the battery & draining it (it doesn't take long - especially if the lights or A/C is on). If those check out ok, take it into a mechanic & have them run a diagnostic - you may have a relay out. Good Luck.

How to remove a drive belt from my mercedes 560 sel 1989 I am trying to change my alternator belt, because it is broken and I need to remove the drive belt first


Not familiar with your Merc. This is general info. My porsche has a mecanical belt tensioner down low under the engine off the ground. Toyota has a spring charged piston pushing a belt tensioner wheel. Most other cars I've worked on had a pivoting alternator. If your car has a flat serpentive belt then it probaly has a spring loaded tensioner. If it has Vee belts then something sets the tension mechanically at install. Good luck!

The ign lights do not come up when the key is turned just the h/brake and abs light the battery seems not to be charging and the car dies when the batt is dead model 200te estate H reg


This sounds like the output regulator on the alternator! if the car has electronic ignition, this works under load from the engine! if the alternator is not working the the electronic ignition will run off the battery.... thus draining it and the engine will stop! can you test he alternator using a test meter, this should throw out approx' 14-15volts under load! if this is dropping or does not register a voltage then the alternator is at fault! replace and charge battery! hey presto.
hope this helps
Kind regards
