    Great day for an afternoon fall drive here in the PNW!

    More boxes arriving!



    Thermostat, oil filter, and plenty of panel clips for the junkyard trim piece I picked up.

    oh.. plus the gleit...and the anaerobic sealant for the cam solenoids!

    I am going to have to double check EPC... but I feel like I have the wrong thermostat. My car is an April '94 build, which makes me think I need the early PN. I was using EPC when I placed the order though... perhaps one too many after work whiskeys that night

    Re: OWNER - a777fan (E420)

    Does anyone know how to interpret this EPC return? I can't tell which PN I need for the selected control arm.

    The notes don't give any hints if the 210 number superceeds the 124 number. Its interesting though, when I type the numbers into mboemparts, it comes back and tells me the 124 number 'fits my 1994 e420' while the 210 number does not.

    I think the 124-number may be the bolt kit to replace existing bolts, with old / factory links.

    The 210-number is the kit needed when replacing the links with the new-style links, which have different bolt hole diameters.

    So, it depends if you are replacing any links or not...?

    Awesome. Thanks! That would make sense, since the CA part numbers all start with 210!!

    Stopped by the dealer today with my title to order a new complete set of keys. The Master and Valet are both still available, but the wallet key is NLA!

    The aerodynamics on this car show a lot of thought and effort. It's literally the only car I have ever driven whose driver and passenger windows as well as the rear view mirrors stay free of water at speed, even in the most blinding rain!

    My wet commutes are so much safer thanks to this.

    So... the turn signal seems to have become possessed. At times, it doesn’t blink, just stays on all the time. This happens randomly. I assume the relay is starting to go...?

    Very likely, yes. It's the combo relay in the compartment behind the fuse box. Pretty common problem. If you have a local Pick-n-pull you could snag a couple of used ones, or get them from eBay, or from captruff / David Hendy. I vaguely recall new ones were a little spendy. I've had to replace this relay on a few different cars.

    Thanks much Dave. I assume the relay is the same for all 124s?

    I had the same issue and a captruff relay fixed the issue. I have one in my garage...but I can't remember if it's the good one or the bad. I may not have bothered to swap it out before my car went to the wreckers. You're welcome to have it.
