Since MBZ no longer stocks this part, I am in need of 2 replacement sensors for a pair that no longer work. Does anyone have a lead on some? Thanks.

What I need are the ABS Sensors, part # 107-540-00-17. With the sensors not working the anti-lock warning light is on. I am ignorant on this issue so I must ask, are the ABS sensors what you describe as warning the driver about excessive brake pad wear? Thanks in advance.

No, the pad war sensors are different from the ABS sensors.

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.

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: paulpeterson633@gmail.com Good luck.
