13.1. Introduction


The body of Mercedes is self-bearing. Basis details, side parts, a roof and back wings of the car are welded with each other. The windshield and back glasses are pasted. Therefore big malfunctions can be eliminated only in a specialized workshop.

The engine cowl, trunk lid, doors and forward wings of the car are attached by bolts, and they can be replaced easily. At installation therefore surely it is necessary to maintain the appropriate sizes of air gaps, otherwise, for example, the door can knock or take place the increased noise of wind at the movement of the car. The air gap has to pass anyway in parallel, i.e. the distance between body details on all length of an air gap has to be identical. Tolerance of 0,5 mm.
