Cruise Control Module Repairs
Cruise control on a 107 SL is such a wonderful thing, especially if you plan to do any long distance touring. Frustratingly the control units can fail causing intermittent faults or prevent the cruise control from working all together. As you might expect new items can cause a sharp intake of breath but once again the wizards in our workshop can diagnose and replace your control unit for you.

When these fail the cruise control function will shut down or not hold the desired speed. We can test/refurbish all variants of these modules which were fitted to many models up to around 1992. We replace any components that will have deteriorated as a result of age as well as the faulty ones.
Repairs usually take a few days to complete and offer a considerable saving over the cost of a new one.

Bulkhead
First noticed when the SRS warning light stays on this is now checked at the MOT test. Corrosion from water leaks can affect the gold plated connectors and the best way to effect a long lasting cure is to replace them. A few hours work depending on which part of the SRS system has the problem.

Door Seals
Cracked unsightly rubbers? Ripped or missing door seal? We can help restore your rubber seals with a range of genuine Mercedes-Benz SL 107 or high quality reproduction items. We can provide advice if this is something you would like to try yourself but if you lack the patience or only have a small swear box it might be better to book your car in and let the boys sort your SL 107 door seals.

Engine Mounts & Suspension
An often overlooked area this on SL 107’s. These cars were so well engineered that the bushes and mounts can survive years of hammer and still produce a compliant ride. Drive a car with fresh bushes and mounts however and you then realise what a well sorted SL really can feel like. “Lighter, nimbler, more compliant, a different car are just some of the ways our customers describe the way their car drives following a relatively modest expenditure in this area..

129 500 V8 Engine Tapping
129 V8 SL’s from 1990 to 1998 can suffer from a “top end tapping” sound which can often be something rather less serious than you think! Book your car in for a diagnosis.

Heater Blower Motor
If your 107 SL heater blower motor squeaks, squeals, only works on limited speeds or worst of all doesn’t work at all then unfortunately you need either a new blower or resistor pack. New parts from Mercedes (if you can get them) will make your eyes water and dent your university savings account but once again fear not because we can help with refurbished resistors and blower motors.

Heater Stuck On
Cant turn your heat off? Hot on one side and not the other? Always cold in your cabin? The good news is that in most cases all you need to do is change a valve in the engine bay or trace a hole in your vacuum system. Sometimes the flaps that control air flow become warped or fail to open and close properly but this can be addressed.

Rubber Seals 107 SL
Suffering water ingress? Cracked unsightly rubbers? Ripped or missing deck seal? We can help restore your rubber seals with a range of genuine Mercedes-Benz SL 107 or high quality reproduction items. We can help you with advice if this is something you would like to try yourself but if you lack the patience or only have a small swear box it might be better to book your car in and let the boys sort your seals.

Steering Box
Vague or loose feeling steering in your SL 107 can often be adjusted out but if you have reached the end of your adjustment then previously you might have been staring down the barrel of a £1500 new steering box. Well, panic not because we can remove your existing steering box and completely refurbish it for a fraction of that cost.

Steering Creek
This is an annoying creak that comes up through your steering column and feels and sounds really quite serious. Once again, panic not. It’s a simple fix.

Noisy Tappets
V8’s or Straight sixes. Mercedes-Benz engines are no different to any other Germans in developing slightly tappety tendencies after a few years. Fear not, your engine is not dead and the cost of sorting this noise is often less than you might think. We’re able to help stop those tapping engines. Book your car in with our team for a quote.
