Re: Replacing coil springs - what tool?

Disconnect both rear shocks at the bottom mount, jack up the frame & let the axle droop down. You can lift each spring out easily. Your brake lines should be long enough to accommodate this. Similar for the fronts, but they require a few firm kicks to remove/install.

Re: Possible Single DIN Solution?

My Continental has bluetooth that goes silent for a minute after each start-up. Quite a nuisance - plus it does not remember where it left off so I have to start the engine, wait for it to find my phone, click the input select 4 times to reach A2DP, then start my audio through my phone. Uuuugh. Not ...

Re: wtb rear sliding windows for swb 463..

I've tried to get US manufacturers to make them. Two of the corners have a bend radius that is too tight for our materials/equipment. You could make something work 80%, but with the wrong bends I think it would look weird. Plus they quotes nearly $1K per pair!

Re: WTB: Provisional Lower Dash W461

The factory put 5.25" speakers in the lower dash on civilian models. I have a Chinesium sheet metal punch set that goes to about that diameter. You might think of looking for one - it makes a very clean hole & the hydraulic versions are really easy to use

Re: Bleeding brakes-need advice

After both rear wheel cylinders. I'm assuming the wheel cylinders and proportioning valve are new as well? It's a good time to replace ALL hydraulic system rubber or you will only get more frustrated.

Re: Help Needed: W460 300GD won't turn off with key

"Brake" could mean low fluid or the parking brake is applied. It has nothing to do with vacuum. Your vacuum pump, even if working, should be removed and checked for wear. When it fails, the pivot and/or bearings will break up and fall into the engine. Bad.

Any leak could cause a no-shut-off condition, but start with the vacuum pump, brake booster, shut-off diaphragm, and ignition switch. Then continue to the door locks.
