Where is MB ecu and it's service connector? Hiding behind a carpet/ panel somewhere?

There is no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.

When you find your ecu you might look at the part number - my auto car had a manual ecu fitted which meant that when you lift off the throttle the car does not slow down - not that it slows much with the correct ecu fitted. I suspect that MB in true Reliant style just bought a box full of ecu's ( all the same ) and fitted them to all cars. The correct part numbers are:-
auto 86GB-12A650-BD manual 86GB-12A650-B2A
ecu's can be bought from

I now have a auto ecu fitted and keep the manual one as a spare - it did work so not to be thrown away - cost for a new one was around £160 five years ago so not that expensive
