Miscellaneous Notes and Things

Hmm, when I bought my white 200, the clutch master cylinder was leaking, a £50 part from Mercedes Benz.

Or so you think.

Well, little known fact, many of the odd little parts like servo cylinders, joints, suspension rubbers etc, can be sourced from other German cars, in particular, the clutch and brake cylinders seemed to be shared by Volkswagen Beetles of the same vintage, which stands to reason, as they probably shared the same OEM manufacturer.

So when you're stuck for a part on your vintage Merc, take a look at period VWs, cos those parts are plentiful and still made new across the world!
