This auction is for the seals to rebuild the hydraulic cylinders that raise, lower, and lock your retractable roof, with instructions.
This comprehensive set of 20 o-rings is what you need to rebuild all 11 (or 12, depending on year) of your car roof's hydraulic cylinders. Because of changes made by Mercedes during the R129 chassis' run, We have included all the possible combinations of o-rings needed--regardless of year or model.
The o-rings in the kit are organized by cylinder, so you know which ones go to which cylinders.
This is an upgrade to the OEM seal, which is not capable of withstanding the aggressive/corrosive hydraulic fluids.
The Nitrile Rubber compound used in this seal is exceptionally resistant to petroleum based oils, found in hydraulic fluids used in the Mercedes Benz convertible top hydraulic system.
Fits the following vehicles built on the Mercedes R129 chassis:
300SL 1989 1993
300SL-24 1990 1993
500SL 1990 1993
600SL 1993 1993
SL280 1993 2000
SL320 1994 2002
SL500 1994 2002
SL600 1994 2002
A set of basic instructions and links to online resources are included.
