      No listing for the cabin air filter for the '82 model Mercedes 300TD. Check the vehicle owners manual to see if equipped with a cabin air filter - not all vehicles have them.

      Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com - to list only a few - for the replacement parts.

    Where is the washer pump located on my vehicle

      Remove the passenger front wheel. Then, towards the front of the vehicle, remove the inner fender well cover. The washer pump is behind a plastic liner. There are a couple 8mm nuts and at the bottom of the liner, in front of the tire, below the headlight location there are two compression pin connectors to pop out. The liner is actually 2 liners, a front half and a rear half. I think you'd only need to play with the front half.

      The washer motor and pump runs both the headlight and the windshield washers. Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.partsgeek.com, www.carpartswarehouse.com, or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the washer pump from around $5.00 for your vehicle.

      The engine air intake filter is located under the hood, just ahead of the engine. There will be a square or rectangular housing - which contains the air intake filter for the engine. This part is very easy to replace.

      Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse, www.carpartswarehouse.com, or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts.

    Average cost of a tune up
    110,000. miles
     
    • Jimm

      Lets see; eight (8) spark plugs at an average of $2.50 each = $20.00. The air filter would cost around $8.00 - 12.00, the new fuel filter would cost around $6.00 - so the total for parts may be as much as $38.00 to $45.00.
      You might figure the labor for perhaps one hour; roughly $70.00 - $100.00 - depending upon the repair shop.
      Check with the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the replacement air filter from around $6.70 for your vehicle.

    Can the catilyc converter make a tapping sound once its bad that souds like it could be in the motor?

      Yes it could, BUT, when you raise the engine rpm, the tapping should not follow the engine sped exactly. Or, when you raise theengine rpm, the tapping usually diminishes or goes away when the cat is the cause.
