1 ENGINES1.0. Technical Data1.1. Engine - Removal and InstallationThe removal of the engine and transmission requires a suitable lifting hoist or hand crane to lift the power unit out of the vehicle. The engine and transmission is removed from the vehicle as a complete unit after the parts shown in Fig. 1.1 are removed from the front end of the vehicle. The engine and transmission is a heavy unit and the hoist or crane must be strong enough to take the weight of the assembly, remembering that the weight is more than 200 lbs. The following description is a general guideline, as we cannot refer to every possible variation and/or equipment that may be fitted to your vehicle. If an air conditioning system is fitted, it is not possible to remove the engine under DIY conditions, unless you have the system discharged and after completion of the installation re-charged at a Mercedes Dealer or a workshop dealing with A/C systems.Fig. 1.1 - The engine can be removed from the vehicle after the illustrated parts have been removed from the front end of the vehicle or as described on the following pages.

The installation is a reversal of the removal procedure. The door can be adjusted in the elongated holes of the hinges. The front door is correctly adjusted when an even gap exists all around in the opening when the door is closed. The hinge securing bolts allow an adjustment up and down and in and out. Slacken the hinges as required by trial and error until the gap is obtained. Then tighten the screws without moving the door. Tighten the two hinge bolts to 5.5 kgm (40 ft.lb.) after installing the pin (25) and the nut (24) in Fig. 11.1. The nut must be tightened carefully (0.5 kgm).
