Questions about book from customers:

Will this book show me how to work on my vacuum doors in my 300SE 1992 model?
Answer: This tech companion has technical articles from a Mercedes club magazine reprinted into one book. It does have article on fixes for the vacuum door locks. This book is more of general tips for all Mercedes, rather than specific instructions for an exact model. So you might be better with an actual workshop manual for your car.
