View Full Version : HOW-TO Rebuild a W126 steering gear

10-31-2016, 12:43 PM
Here is a very detailed steering gear r/r I used for the C126. I opted to get a replacement box in the end, but this is an excellent write-up and similar to what we are used to here on this board. I do not know the author but its available on the web.

Choose part 2 first, then continue with part 1. Not sure how that came about.

This is not for a W124 model, so it should not be in the E500/500E HOW-TO sub-forum. The 500E/E500 HOW-TO sub-forum is reserved for HOW-TO articles specific to the .036 (and as they apply, to/from other W124 chassis models).

If I remember correctly, there is a specific HOW-TO sub-forum for the C/W126 models.

Furthermore, all HOW-TO articles on this forum are strongly preferred to be authored and illustrated by 500Eboard forum members.

If we don't apply some discipline to maintain the quality of HOW-TO articles, then before we know it, we will have folks posting links to supposed HOW-TO articles and DIYs at other forums like Benzworld and PeachParts.

You are right. Can Someone move it or would you prefer that I delete and set it up on the C126 or I can remove it al the same. Just shoot me a PM what you decide to do and I shall concur!

I have moved it to the regular 126 discussion forum, so the matter should be settled.

It's important that we categorize discussions correctly when initiated, so that the workload is reduced as much as possible for the site administrators.

You bet, I have noted the distinction.
