1.0 out of 5 stars Useless... Oct. 15 2000
I don't even know why I go to this manual anymore. Today, after having some difficulty in pulling the starter out of my 280C, I went to the manual to see if there were any particulars that I may have missed...In three paragraphs, the manual basically told me to mark my wires (placement & order), that I may have to turn the wheel to the left or right (model dependant) and that I should unbolt it from the motor.
No kidding. (So how do I get to the topmost bolt on the starter that I can't even see? Do I need to go ahead and yank the exhaust manifold off or what?)
There are no wiring diagrams, no detailed information on body works (info on power windows, sun roof, etc...) and little to no detailed info on the drive line. Maybe I'm just spoiled by Haynes manuals, but please don't waste your time with this book.

After many persuals of the appropriate sections of this book, I was at every bit as much a loss to troubleshoot and perform preventative maintenance on my Benz as before. This book reads as if culled from a generic template, with alterations added on to appease the series' editors--not as though it were the product of experienced mechanics and engineers familiar with and fond of the ways of the Mercedes. I started troubleshooting and tuning up my car twenty years ago with the help of books, and this manual left me wanting to strangle the writers. Pass it by.

As the owner of a 1981 and a 1984 Mercedes 300SD, I find this manual absolutely useless. I have recently attempted to find information about the operation of power windows, the engine cooling system and the air conditioning system only to be frustrated by the total lack of any information about these systems in my children's vehicles. I'm currently looking for an manual for these vehicles more along the line of the user friendly, informative Hayne's manuals I had been used to.

I just want to know if this book helps you to do some trouble shooting before things happen, like a consumer report would, like brakes go bad fast etc...My parents just bought one and could use some help on getting them a book, my dad knows how to work on them but needs a good guide. thanks for your time :)

The only thing this book is good for is my fire place. Black and white diagrams only. Hardly any advice on how to diagnose or fix a problem. You need a Phd in automotive technology to read the electrical schematics. In one word, USELESS!! DONT BUY IT.
