Rebuilding Hydraulic latch cylinders Mercedes convertible R129, W124 convertible
How to rebuild the front windshield hydraulic latch cylinders on a Mercedes
R129..W124 models rear latch and more recent clk are very similar..The seal
kit was from Konstantin Belov at MBseals http://www.mbseals.com/
He was really good to deal with and shipped very quickly..he uses an
upgraded seal that will resist the leakage problems the original seals
have..The latch cylinders are very easy to do yourself,unlike the main
cylinders which would be better left to a professional rebuilder...I can
not stress enough that you purchase the correct hydraulic fluid from a
Mercedes dealership when topping up the fluid.

Mercedes SL-Class 500 test drive review Mercedes SL500 - Autogefühl
Testing the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, the 2014 Mercedes SL 500.
With its fine materials, the Mercedes SL gives you immediately a luxurious
feeling. You can see, this car was perfectly finished with great attention
to detail. In German cars, the clearance is always a big matter, the small
gaps between two elements -- which are supposed to be exactly even. We can
see this perfect symmetry here, for example. I do like the clear, elegant
design lines in the front. But the media panel looks not quite up to date
with its square plastic buttons.
The "Cockpit Management and Data System" COMAND can be ordered with
internet access. A DVD changer is also available as an option. I really
don't know, why anyone would still use DVD's in a car, but nevertheless.
One feature I like best, is the panoramic glass roof with adjustable
lighting, called MAGIC SKY CONTROL. The transparent roof switches to light
or dark at the push of a button. It had been tested in Death Valley in
California and the result was, that with dimmed roof, you reduce the heat
radiation by the sun about the factor twenty. How does it work? Imagine
particles inside the glass that stand in a clear row and let sunshine
through, as long as an electric current is induced. When I push the button,
the electric current fades, the particles get all mixed up -- and prevent
light and heat from shining through.
This sixth generation of the SL also offers that hard roof that can be
retracted into the boot using an electrohydraulic mechanism to save space,
which converts the SL in a few seconds into a roadster or a coupé. In less
than 20 seconds it opens or closes. The disadvantage is of course, that you
have to stand still. In that case, a soft top is better -- but not that
durable over the years.
While driving, the first things I immediately notice is the exceptional
riding comfort. You have a extremely smooth ride, no matter if you are in
the Sport or Comfort mode. Actually the difference doesn't turn out to be
big. I can just repeat, the suspension is maybe the most superior thing
about this car and sets standards.
The sportiness comes to play, when you push the throttle and circle it
around the corner. You feel a little bit of rear wheel spin -- that's just
super fun, and even works with stability control turned on.
The electronics just allow you that little spin to have the fun and still
keep being in control. However, you can also turn off the stability control
to be able to spin it around more freely. The SL is powerful in
accelerating and effortlessly superior across all speeds and nimble on
winding roads, like here in Southern France.
On the negative side, there is the indirect steering which lets it step
down from the league of pure sportscars. So sportscar lovers might be
annoyed by this, however, you should prefer the smooth ride of a grand GT
with sporty elements.
Mercedes always wants to stress its safety features, and actually, for a
roadster, there are a lot of them in it. For example, we have the blind
spot warner, giving you a signal when cars are approaching at the sides
from behind -- erm, does that actually happen when driving this car? ;-)
Furthermore, the so called Adaptive Brake firstly warns you when you are
getting to close to a car -- with a visual and a sound hint. That can be
practical, if you are overtaking a vehicle, turn your head shortly to take
a look around and in that second the vehicle in front of you brakes hardly.
In that case, the sound
catches your attention 1 second earlier and you can start the braking
process right away. Also, in an emergency braking situation the braking
lights are flashing to warn the car behind you.
And my favorite: The Active Parking Assist. It automatically manoeuvres the
car into a parking space using ultrasound sensors. We will see how it
The current SL500 has a 4.7 Liter V8 under the bonnet. With its twin turbo, it reached 435 horsepower -- and Boosts you from 0 to 100 kilometres or 0 to 60
miles in 4,6 seconds.
In Germany, there is also the smaller SL400 available, it recently replaced
the SL350 now delivering 333 horsepower from a 3 Liter
V6. If you are OK with that, you can at least save 20.000 Euros stepping
down. The SL 500 however starts at 120.000 Euros in Germany, at 80.000
Pounds in the UK and at 106.000
Dollars in the US -- where you can only get the SL 550 with 429 horse
power. No clue why it is called 550 although having less horsepower.

The technology of tomorrow is already a reality at Daimler Trucks, in the
shape of the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025. The autonomously driving
truck was presented on the eve of the 65th International Motor Show for
commercial vehicles in Hanover, Germany. Its perfect synthesis of
technology and design means: The Future Truck 2025 is more than simply a
new truck; it is a key component of the transport system of the future. For
the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is sparing on resources, reduces
emissions of all types, ensures maximum road traffic safety and increases
the level of networking in road transport. Goods traffic in the future will
be safer, more efficient and more connected as a result. The Future Truck
2025 thus marks a revolution for road traffic and its infrastructure, the
truck driving profession and the haulage industry as a whole.
Work continues to take the Future Truck 2025 towards market maturity -
series production on the horizon
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is far more than a remote vision. The
truck should be on our roads in ten years' time. Many of its technological
elements are already available and ready to use.
"This truck provides compelling answers to the challenges that our
customers will be facing in the future. Our aim therefore is to press
forward with readying this technology for the market and to bring it to
series-production standard," said Dr Wolfgang Bernhard, Daimler Board
Member for Trucks and Buses, at the presentation of the innovative vehicle
in Hanover. "What we are showing here today is how the transport of goods
on our roads will be running more efficient, safer and more connected in
ten years' time. I am convinced that this will open up a whole new business
perspective for Daimler Trucks ," added Bernhard.
