Book Excerpt: 1984-1988 Mercedes-Benz 190 Repair Manual
The Mercedes-Benz 190 was introduced in North America in 1984. The innovative new model heralded a departure from traditional Mercedes thinking, and marked the first venture into the medium-sized sedan market by one of the world's most respected manufacturers of large quality cars.
The models covered by this manual feature traditional, solid, practical Mercedes design and engineering, with new advances in automotive technology, foremost among them being the meticulous attention to ride quality and handling.
This has been achieved by further refining the proven MacPherson strut front suspension arrangement, used extensively by other manufacturers but not previously by Mercedes, and combining this with a new multi-link independent rear suspension.
The model ranges is not extensive, offering just one body style, but with a choice of engines and options to enhance the package. The cars covered by this manual are all four door sedans powered by a four cylinder overhead camshaft fuel injected engine.
The engine is mounted longitudinally, and drives the rear wheels through a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission.
