How to replace Steering damper
How do I replace the steering dampers?
The W123 chassis covers 240D's, 300D's, 300TD's, 280E's, and several other models of Mercedes coupes, sedans and wagons from model years 1977 to 1985.
The W123 has a single steering damper. It is simply held in place by a single bolt on either end. Jack up the front of the car and place it safely on jack stands. Unbolt the old steering damper, remove it, put the new one in its place and bolt it down.
