Wear sensors (typo)
Sorry. I misunderstood and thought you were referring to the brake pad wear sensors.
I was afraid of that...are either of you aware of someone/place that would have 2 ABS sensors or another individual who might know? Thanks.
Try the Mercedes Benz Classic Center in Irvine, California.
Normally a great source...checked with them already. No luck. Someone somewhere has one I hope. Thanks for the suggestion. Best.
I checked Pelican Parts here in Southern California and they also do not list the ABS brake sensor wire for your 85 SL.
I will post a Parts Wanted ad on the PeachParts.com forum.
Thanks so much...what is the PeachParts.com forum? Sounds like it is something about which I should know. Again, thanks for your help!
No response yet. The PeachParts.com forum is used by thousands of Mercedes enthusiasts and covers a variety of topics. It is totally free.
Fingers crossed 👍
Sorry, after two weeks being posted on the PeachParts.com forum still no response. I will bump my request up and see what happens.
Hope burns forever 👍. Thanks again so much.
Happy to help.
Sorry, no responses from the users of the PeachParts.com forum.
At least you tried; thanks again for generously giving your time to this effort.
I may have a source for the front wheel sensors on your SL. This email address was provided to me by a fellow on the Peach Parts forum: email@example.com Good luck.
My God, you are a saint. I will give it a go. Thanks so much
Hopefully Mr. Peterson will have what you need. Thanks.
Were you ever able to find what you were looking for? I have an '85 380SL, also, and needed to find a front ABS sensor earlier this year. After an extensive search, I was finally able to locate through Adsit Company in Muncie, IN.
I followed up with Adsit after your email and they are searching German contacts for the parts. Still no word but I was told it would take time. Thanks for your suggestion. Hope the parts are found!
