1980 Mercedes-Benz SL 450 SLC 4.5 litres from Australia and New Zealand


Terrific car


Exhaust renewed.

General Comments:

Vacuum system will not operate the doors or seats, could anyone supply a drawing of the valve direction of the valves located behind the battery.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Had the same problem you will have to put actuators in your doors, relatively inexpensive. The vacuum system has a leak and the pressure is not sufficient to lock the doors. It will take 25lb. actuators to operate your door locks; anything less will be insufficient! Good Luck!
