W140 Child Seat Anchors

Post by drewpasmith » Tue 28 Nov, 2017 12:15 pm

Hi there!

My W140 600 SEL has just arrived off the ship from the UK and the compliance engineer says the car needs child seat anchor points installed.

Is there a W140 owner out there willing to show me where these are on their Australian delivered cars?

I'd like to avoid having the car look like it's had a run-in with a Repco store...

Cheers,

Drew

Hi AMG,

Thanks so much for this :)

I got in touch with Mercedes Benz Sydney at the same time, and they provided me with the image attached, which I then cross-referenced with another image showing the W140 body for context.

Notice the differences in the spacer tubes (104) in the MB Sydney image, and the triangulated mount in yours?

I wonder if this difference is down to pre- and post-facelift cars. Mine's a 1991 build, for reference.

Anyway, thanks again for your help. The discussion with the engineer is much more fruitful as a result.

Cheers,

Drew

P.S. I love your cars and names. Here are mine:

1991 Mercedes 600 SEL "Diana"
1993 Mercedes 190 E 2.0 "Vivian"
1991 Porsche 928 S4 "Loretta"

part number 104 is a tube spacer for the rear roller blind - it's got nothing to do with the child safety restraint anchors.

I think you need to ask them to check their diagram and ask them how they came up with a rear blind spacer part for the child safety restraint anchor...
The pictures show the group number reference where they looked up the part number

Hope it's cheaper than a w220. Ex-pat had a 625-option (ie Aus spec but O/S delivered) w220 and I think anchor was there but buried under parcel shelf trim. Lot of trim had to come out.

Hi Drew,
:think: ... has that something to do with 1997?
