W124 6th year of ownership service
Into my 6th year of ownership of my 1990 W124 230E, Been my all time favorite car and I finally had a chance to take it in for some much needed and long neglected repairs.

My car was losing water constantly and I had keep topping up water. turns out the water pump was leaking, and on closer inspection the thermostat cover was also leaking.

Water pump RM230


Thermostat cover RM30


Thermostat RM40


The fan belt was also making the most annoying and embarrassing squeaking/screaming and it was really time to put it to rest.

Fan belt tensioner RM230
Fan bet tensioner absorber RM98



The car was misfiring intermittently and the culprit turn out to be the spark plug/ignition cables.

Ignition cables RM125
spark plugs x4 RM28

The car's steering was loose and the car's steering seems to be unstable/jumpy at highway speeds.

tighten steering box labour RM25

Steering absorber RM80



Driver side mirror needed to be replaced RM190



My gearshift was loose and so replaced the gearstick bush (RM20) and the gearstick bush clip (RM8)



Also replaced my driver side window winder motor/regulator (RM140)

All these are wear and tear items. Not bad after 6 years.
Did you change these parts at Ah Sang workshop?

Yup mainly wear and tear items. 2nd time changing radiator thermostat, 2nd time changing belt tensioner & belt tensioner absorber. 2nd time changing the gear shifter bush.

First time for me going to Ah Sang's New workshop in Sg.Besi, his old place in Chan Sow Lin has been reclaimed for redevelopment.

How is the new workshop? Is the set up same like the old one, open space?

It's a very different setup, He's now in a shoplot and he's installed 6 car jacks in his workshop. Much neater place. The shoplot is quite deep and they were able to service 8 cars (6 inside, 2 outside) at a time when I was there.

Yeah, it is a very busy workshop. I avoid Saturdays and I try to bring the car in before 11am on a regular day. If its a big job there is no point waiting as there is no service lounge, astro, wifi or free coffee!
