Ask your local library, who may know where you can buy one. They often have many workshop manuals, or can get you one from a different library. Not sure if they will lend it for a week or only let you read/photocopy it. They are very helpful-just ask them.

Is it hard to flush the radiator on a mb 100D, recently had it to a mechanic who put some stop leak in the radiator now there is heaps of black gunk in the overflow bottle.

paul
paul  

The mechanic may have put in radiator FLUSH to clean the system, rather than Stop leak, which you dont need UNLESS its leaking. Check with your mechanic.

It was leaking, but not boiling .
The mechanic put cooling system sealer in.
Now the overflow bottle has the black gunk in it.
Should I just leave it.

paul
paul  

I just read your reply. Not sure the sealer-stop leak has that effect. Ask the sealer manufacturer. As your mechanic can't tell you, ask another mechanic, but make sure you keep up the water level & keep watching the temperature so you do not cook the motor.

Does it matter if there is some movement in the fan ? If you hold the fan it moves a few ml forward and backward . But when it runs it seems balanced ok ???

paul
paul  

It may have some wear in the bearing, is all I can think of. If its not noisy I would not be too concerned. A mechanic would only take 30 seconds to look at it & tell you. Just ask one.

How to fix a noise problem in the steering?

paul
paul  

Depends on what the cause is. Due to wear? Are parts still available? How much free travel in the steering? Something working loose? Go to a steering specialist SOON, before it gets really dangerous & they will tell you-probably for free & give you an approx. price. Goodluck with it.

Where is starter relay

paul
paul  

Sorry, no idea. Best to ask an Auto electrician to check it out & get a quote. If too expensive, go to a wrecking yard & buy one.

Relay is mounted on left side wall, front of door opening. Diesels also have a Glow Plug Controller rear of left head light assembly.

The glow plug lamp has started to flash once the car is running but not every time.

Having problem getting the starter motor to engage, cleaned wire contacts, battery 12 month old and charged permanently by solar mat on dash. Any ideas?

paul
paul  

A small solar mat on the dash puts little into the battery. Try jumper leads from a good battery, & get yours checked while still under warranty. Batteries can pack up early. Best to ask an Auto electricion, who might easily diagnose the problems. Good luck.

beaver

The 40W solar mat is quite adequate, as the engine battery is at the rear of the MD100D van it has a very long cable to the starter motor, which can cause a voltage drop. The battery AH is the largest that will fit the space.

Why does the glow plug lamp flash?

Hi after about 15 minutes driving the fans come on and it's loud any reason why they just come on?

paul
paul  

The radiator cooling fans MUST come on to keep the temperature down below 105 or so? degrees C. Stuck in traffic will heat up the engine lots, so its probably correct to come on.Make sure the radiator is clean & unobstructed, & just turn your radio on!

How many vacuum line from ignition in MB 100D?

paul
paul  

Sorry, no idea. Check if any librarys keep a workshop manual. Failing that, go to a Mercedes spareparts seller, as they might show you in their parts book. As the merc mb100 was made by Sanyong motors in Korea, they also might know. Good luck.

How can i adjust the gear box shift cables bought a new shift assembly and still wont go into first gear?

paul
paul  

I don't know, but ask the parts shop you got the new assembly from. They might be kind enough to ask their mechanics. Don't think it would be a huge job--ask merc how much if THEY adjusted it. Would it have anything to do with wear in the box or selectors?

Adjustment screw is connecting the gear stick to left cable , it is about two and a half centimetres long and has two lock screws one at each end . Mine came loose and disconnected yesterday , and I lost gear CONTROLL :) luckily it was easy see the disconnected cable from the bottom of the gear stick , once I removed the engine cover . I did it up a bit short and first was hard to engage into first , a slight adjustment , lengthening the cable and locking the lock nuts good , should be all the adjustment you need . New bushes would be a good idea too to tighten up the stick CONTROLL , but good luck finding some , my mechanic said it may be possible to lazier print a set :) but for now I am just dealing with a loose stick .
