Not hard - the part number is the same, therefore the diagnostics must
be the same.  The problem I still have is that I can't see where the
actual mounting of the gauge is dealt with in the microfiche.

Unfortunately, a whole raft of new 'MB' material seems to have overlaid
the 'WR' material at this point, and there's no information _at_ _all_
about fitting a sender.  Some about taking one out ...

I wonder if it's the same as the Passat - index marks have to be lined
up, and if the sender isn't screwed down real tight - it creeps.

Oh, no - Dan is far from thankless.  I don't think you've seen a 'real'
regular bitch about archives ...

As an aside - I was in my tool merchant's today, and came across a
little jewel just lying on the counter.  It's a 17mm Allen driver,
ideal for the differential/gearbox plugs.  This one is _real_ neat -
it's FACOM D.107-17.  It solves _all_ the clearance and skew problems -
the 3/8" drive recess actually goes down into the driver - it's only
1" long overall.  Magic.
