Re: New addition to the family (96 SL2)

That seems to describe the situation with my car well so far. So my next step is checking the fusible link it seems. When i measure that, thats with the key at on right? And im to probe either end of...

Re: New addition to the family (96 SL2)

At the current moment, the car isnt somewhere i can put it on stands. Last time it died, i could only get it 10% into the driveway onto the grass and onto a hill. No way to safely jack it up.

Re: New addition to the family (96 SL2)

Well, the car isnt starting now. And this time its more serious.

Re: Motorweek 1993 SW2 Retro Review

Comments seem to err more towards positivity for the car which is nice. The few negatives seem to be people who havent had one or were genuinely disappointed with theirs.

I would really like a...

Re: New addition to the family (96 SL2)

Ive taken a look at a few videos to see the process. Some youtubers have extremely useful videos.

Ohio rust struck hard again, because the driver side brake line blew on the SL2. The light kept...

Re: New addition to the family (96 SL2)

I found one of those clip on wheel weights on the outside. Also was the spot where the most corrosion was present. Another wheel had the same clip but no corrosion and it holds air. One in the rear...

Re: New addition to the family (96 SL2)

I just experienced the joys of having alloy wheels... Finding out that they dont hold pressure when sitting. The left front wheel went flat today. I slapped the dummy tire on for now. (Even that ones...

Thats a 205 mile drive + passport to canada for me. Having just bought a car i certainly wouldnt want to pay that much for it but if they budge on pricing that would be a nice buy.

Re: Battery light on, erratic shifting

So, what ended up happening is the car had to go to my trusted mechanic. It was the alternator and a fusible link. The new battery is working fine now.
