W123 – Tacho-Reparatur – works for W116 odometer (kilometerteller) as well

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/09/11

Since the odometer of our W116 would stall every now and then, we had to repair it.  Luckily the instructions at W123 – Tacho-Reparatur [WayBack] work fine for a W116 as too.

It’s different between 450SEL and 450SEL 6.9 and contains a bunch of lightbulbs so for completeness some links that help fixing lighting issues:

 Becker Mexico Cassette AUX input Upgrade by Ken Tyler for W116 : Mercedes-Benz S-Class – 280S, 280SE, 280SEL, 300SD, 350SE, 350SEL, 450SE, 450SEL & 450SEL 6.9

A modification to fit a 3.5 mm stereo socket to the front face of a Becker Mexico Cassette to allow use of mp3 players and the like but still retaining AM/FM radio and cassette functions.

Source: W116 : Mercedes-Benz S-Class – 280S, 280SE, 280SEL, 300SD, 350SE, 350SEL, 450SE, 450SEL & 450SEL 6.9

Interesting…

We’ve such a receiver in our classic car (see 1970 Becker Mexico AM-FM Cassette Car Radio showing operation & sound – YouTube « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of stuff).

It would be a great way to add AUX to it, but I’d rather not modify the front-panel. Since the 450SEL69 has plenty of room, I will try to see if the above instructions can make the cable external so the AUX connector will be either near the arm rest or the glove compartment.

This is the radio in our W116 450SEL 6.9 (pictures are at Flickr: mb450sel69).

Still need to figure out how we can connect a mobile phone or AUX to it.

Research research…

Note there were earlier and later models of this:

This is ours:
