    Window run channels are still good except for the driverīs side upper 90 degree corner. That one was gone and I had to find a replacement. It fitīs but not like the OEM stuff. Did not buy in the...

    ....and hereīs a picture of the plunger with retainer.

    I used six rolls of aluminum-butyl mats and did the entire trunk without deck lid. Package tray, behind rear seat, rear wheel arches, doors (outer and inner - totally sealing up all openings here),...

    Yes, I think (hope) so. The only issue Iīm having so far is speed control dropping out when lights are on. This is due to PO messing with the turn/brake/tail lights to meet german laws where you need...

    Hi Arquemann,
    yeah, I pulled a lotta hairs. I had read too much about the CFI EECIV issues that I totally overlooked the idle.

    And yes, Iīm a bit proud to get this good mileage. 16 mpg I get...
  6. UPDATE - UPDATE! Plunger fail prooved!

    I just swapped sensors from my Town Car and disassembled the non-working one this minute.

    And now itīs officially prooved:
    The plunger fails!

    Behind the plunger is a small plastic rod,...
  7. Finally fixed! ATC Sensor fully working again!

    Hi, I fixed my spare sensor!

    Caution! Glueing the plunger in the outermost position will not work. The plunger protrudes too far and the valve will not seal.
    Jamming a piece of wood behind the...
  8. Radio NOT culprit for stall - curb idle set too low.

    Well, Iīm kinda ashamed for not checking the most obvious first: curb idle!
    Hence I must correct my radio/bluetooth cuplrit thing. This had nothing to do with the stall. I verified it this weekend...
  9. Stalling solved - caused by radio turned on - bluetooth module in suspicion!

    Hi, I think I solved the mysterious random stalling on decel or hard stop.
    It must be caused by the radio, or better said very likely the bluetooth module I piggybacked onto the stock tape radio to...
  10. Thanks, Iīll check grounds.

    Thanks, Iīll check grounds.
  11. Speed control drops out after a feww sec when headlights are on.

    Any ideas?
    84 Town Car.

    It must be electrical.

    Brake/turn signal light circuit had been modified to meet german laws that require a amber turn signal.
    The two bulbs per light assembly had...

    Ah, now I understand.
    The stall is gone now with the new TFI connector.

    Putty around the drain did the trick. Itīs sealed.

    There is some 1/2" cloth/jute piece glued onto the carpet back in the footwell area. Then thereīs a layer of rubber backed jute/cloth padding on...

    Ha funny, you donīt see many of these Mercedes around here in Germany anymore. This generation seems to be gone already.

    Thanks, that was the drain the aero writeup was all about.
    I checked last night and it is leaking from there. Cleaned all dirt and mud from out of there. Still leaking.
    Iīll seal around with...
  16. 84 Town Car firewall water leak fix - same as 90 up gen HVAC drain flap?

    Found a writeup for fixing water leaks from the firewall on a 92 Crown Victoria. The HVAC drain flap needs to be resealed with putty thrugh the wheel well with pulled apron.
    Does this also work on...

    EGR valve had been cleaned. No deposit on the pintle and leak free seating. High idle is not controlled via an IAC solenoid on my 84 but vacuum kicker. EGR is however solenoid controlled.
  18. Makes no difference so I conclude EGR is fine....

    Makes no difference so I conclude EGR is fine. Weīll see if the stalling was cured by the new connector by time to come. Gotta check curb idle rpms with my meter - probably needs a tad of tweaking up.
  19. EGR valve is clean, holds vacuum when applied....

    EGR valve is clean, holds vacuum when applied. PVS switch works as should, too.
    How to verify proper operation other then that?
  20. I have replaced the TFI connector with a Dorman...

    I have replaced the TFI connector with a Dorman one from Rockauto. So far no stalling but I only drove two times since the repair. Looks like it was actually the connector that was causing the random...

    Still stalling, so the cleaning of the connecter didnīt help:-(
    Turning off the AC for hot starting helps, as well as pressing the accelerator pedal slightly down (like in the manual suggested).

    So far no stall on decel/quick stop since cleaning the TFI connector.
    Although now I have a stall after every startup now that the AC is fixed. I claim this to the throttle kicker not doing itīs job...

    Hi, thank you for the kind offer.

    The one from the parts car seems to work. Although I get the feeling I donīt get full heat. AC is finally rebuilt, charged and working since last Friday. What a...

    As far as a fix for the cracked armrest thing goes:
    While cutting my own floor mats from a roll of flooring material in the correct color (Canyon Red in my case), I also cut out four small coverlay...

    AC is all back in the car and filled with the proper amount of mineral oil. It will get charged tomorrow by the shop. They use R413. I cross my fingers it will work our well.
