Front Wheel Sensors/'85 380 SL

Mon, 29 Jul 2019 18:17:20 GMT

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.

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!

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.

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!
