Is Your Mercedes Convertible Leaking Hydraulic Fluid?

Is Your Mercedes Convertible Leaking Hydraulic Fluid?

I've custom made hydraulic cylinder seals for Mercedes soft high convertibles.

I was tired of looking for high high quality seals for my 500SL / R129 after the cylinders were already leaking after being rebuilt in April of 2008.

After over a 12 months and a half of analysis I found a manufacturer in Europe that makes seals out of a fabric that far exceeds the OEM and not less than one well recognized rebuilder.

Most of the cylinders may be "rebuilt" with basic instruments in 5 minutes, other will probably be longer.

Sure, you need to be very carefull not to scratch the piston rod, and DO NOT use a pliers/vise grips on the piston rod.

I cannot promote these on ebay after a bad experience, and I am, sick of their BS fees anyhow. Components I list right here will reflect reductions from NOT using ebay.

Currently I only have full units available:

Set of 12 for 1990-1996 $260.00 shipped, insured, SL320 w/ signature confirmation.

Set of eleven for 1997-2002 $250.00 shipped, insured, w/ signature confirmation.

I will have pairs of seals available on the next manufacturing run in 2019.

Mercedes has defective engine wiring harnesses, the biodegradable wiring insulation cracks and can fail.
