The myth of the water tight rear hatch...

Club traders have them - You probably need to buy a rubber from them for the outside of the glass frame but I just use a door seal for the rubber that fits to the GRP

previous owners make me laugh!

Sometimes you just have to use the bits you have to hand - although I would have cut the bolts down with a angle grinder afterwards.

The myth of the water tight rear hatch...

Mine is water tight at the moment - have you tried adjusting via the top hinges - three screws on the hinges to get the hatch to be in the correct place at the top. Make sure your drain holes are clear and have pipes attached to let the water drain below the "boot" level.

MB Wing mirrors

IIRC - its glued into position - a dose of Sticky Stuff Remover might work if left long enough to soak in

MB Wing mirrors

I thought I had a pair of old mirrors somewhere - manual but the principal is the same. If you can get the mirror glass out without breaking it taking the mirror apart is easy - sorry for the quality of the photo taken with my phone on the floor. Holes allow you to get at the screws no problem

MB Wing mirrors

The screws can be got at but it is difficult ( I have done it ) you have to push the mirror "table" to one side - the screws I had to undo were not too tight so hopefully you will find yours the same

Springs, Dampers and Bushings

"stock" springs as far as I know are still available and for the rear are probably ok however I don't know anyone who fits standard springs to the front as the ones that were fitted originally were never really up to the job and did not last long before the front end was drooping. I suspect most peo...

MB Wing mirrors

There are a couple of screws holding the mirror and mechanism in place - put together with a special screwdriver I suspect. Not easy to get undone but if you are going to fit a new plastic "shroud" you can afford to damage the old one

Wiper length

Just park it - remove it complete with the arm then re-fit it on the glass. The MB had a SS ledge for it to rest on, on the GRP but when I had the car re-sprayed the SS was removed and the state of the GRP under it had to be seen to be believed - hence it was left off and the wiper now parks on the ...

Wiper length

"Straight" wipers are/were used on tractors so they are still available from farm suppliers. I needed a 15" arm to go with the 15" blade and found it too long for the passenger side plus it adds to the load on the motor. I used ( still do on the MB ) a standard blade at the rear but leave it to park...

Wiper length

I used a 15" on the drivers front for a better sweep along with a 15" arm - same 15" combo on the rear ( 14" combo on the passenger side front as per the book ).
