Well after owning my 91 200 for 7 months, I wanted to report to the list
the things I have fixed:
replaced all suspension rubber
Replaced passenger side e-brake cable
Fixed sticky passenger side rear brake caliper
Multi function temp sender
digital warning display
Steering wheel center section
And last weekend I repaired the multiple broken wires in the passenger door
hinge. I'm afraid to take a look in the drivers door.
On the good note no more crackling noises when someone opens the door, and
blowing 15a fuses.
What is next?
Oh yea my blower motor started to squeak.
