    E500 and 500 SL R129 common parts

    Hi there,

    I have been led to believe that there are common parts between the W124 E500 and the SL500 R129...

    I live in Oman and getting parts is a nightmare. When I go to the Mercedes breakers yard there are never any E500's there (I think I own the only one left in Oman!) There are however always a couple of R129's that have been stripped down. When I ask for the various parts off it the guy says they wont fit! Not sure if he's being an awkward git......

    Has anyone got a list of the parts that are common to both cars?
    Can I just use the principle that if the part number begins with 129 then it will fit my E500?

    Has any one got a link to a site which catalogs all the parts for the E500 with their part numbers? It would save a lot of hassle if I had this information.

    Thanks All!

    The short answer is the E500E shares many of the drivetrain parts with the 92 thru 95 R129. Some of these parts will be model year specific divided between the 92/93 models and the 94/95 models.

    There is no list of parts here that are common to both cars however some are discussed under various associated headings. You cannot assume any parts that begin with 129 will work on an 036.


    An electronic parts catalog does exist. Many of the more technology minded here are well versed with it's use and refer to it regularly. I am not, sorry.

    Steve, it would help if you could provide a list of the items you're looking for... as Drew mentioned, some items interchange, others do not.

    AND, model years also make a difference, both on the 124 and 129. The 1990-1992 500SL (129.066) has a completely different engine than the 1993-1995 500SL/SL500 (129.067).

    In the future, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE start new threads in the appropriate sub-forum relevant to the topic, NOT the E500E FAQ sub-forum.

    I have moved this thread to the appropriate sub-forum.

    Hi There,

    I am after a seat controller for the passenger side. Part number 1298200126 is that common.

    Cheers

    Steve

    Nope. Despite the 129-prefix, the EPC part number lookup shows 1298200126 as only fitting 124 chassis. However, any 1991-up (USA model year) 124 sedan or wagon with the proper seats, should have this. But no 129's.
