                                          Those complaining about the transmission leaking the issue could be the AT Piston Seal O Ring. Not only does this car share the M119 engine with the larger S Class it also shares the (722-370) 4 speed transmission. It took me many years to find the leak and later I found out this is a common problem which many people do not known about. The O ring can range from $1 (aftermarket) to a few dollars for the official MB part. It is hard to replace because of the location but can be done. Part # is 0059977048. I think there are 2 rings. It has been over 12 years and I cannot remember. Other ring could be 0059978648. This 722-370 transmission is known to be very reliable. Sometimes just replacing the fluid and filter can stop any shifting issues.

                                                                Is there somewhere else to watch the T.V. show if you don't have the D.I.Y. Network? I set my DVR to record the show without realizing I didn't have that network. My package used to include it-- but the wise, innovative, business-type people over at Comcast decided it would be a good idea if I kept sending them the same amount of money each month; & they gave me fewer channels in return.

                                                                So yeah... I'd really like to watch the show any help would be appreciated.

                                                                  As far as I know:

                                                                  The 500E was "only" build by porsche (Porsche had a bad order situation this time). There are no parts from Porsche or modifications done by porsche. The first series has Brembo brakes later the SL600 brakes. Most of the suspension comes from the 500SL. The Engine is the same as the S-Class 500S (w140). The differential has a short translation - that's why the 500E feels more sporty as a regular 500SL

                                                                  kind regards

Prior to street cars the M119 engine was used in the Mercedes -Sauber C9 Silver Arrows that won Le Mans in 1989. 1st, 2nd and 5th in the 1989 Le Mans race. On the Mulsanne straight the M119's clocked at 250 mph or 402 kmph. That is faster than F1 and Indy cars. To slow down the cars in 1990 2 chicanes were added to the Mulsanne which are still in use today.

That is responsible for many of the problems you described (trans lag mainly). regarding the seat position switch, it's only a matter of opening the switch and cleaning. I've worked on similar w124 for many years. Keep up the channel!
