    Lightbulb Clk 320 2000 Convertible

    Hi, I am looking at buying a 2000 year model Clk 320 convertible. The car seems in a great condition, drives well and the roof is super quiet and works 100%. I have been warned that they are prone to rust. I can not see any rust but would like to prevent it from rusting. Can anyone suggest what one can do? Also where can one get parts for these cars? The one door speaker cover is damaged. Is there anything else I should look out for on these cars?

    Thanks
    Kobus

    Hi Kobus

    I can offer a little info regarding rust prevention. The rest, unfortunately not.

    1. Never use a high pressure cleaner to wash the car's body. It removes all the polish and oils that you actually want.

    2. Do like most vintage car enthusiasts do .... one cup of parrafin into a bucket of water together with the car shampoo and wash the car with a sponge. The parrafin gets in under the edges of the window rubbers and stays there, reducing the chance of rust starting where it normally does first, at the edges by the rubbers.

    Lastly, find a garage that will be prepared to spray the whole chassis and pan underneath with old engine oil.

    Having spent my whole life living next to the ocean, I know that the above tips do work.

    Cheers and peace out
    Derek

    Enjoy the jammie.

    Are there any good reliable Mercedes mechanics in the Cape? Areas like Brackenfell, Bellville, Durbanville, Goodwood, Parow.
