Central Locking was created by SL450UK
Hallo,

Please could someone tell me if my '73 450SL should have central locking? It is a UK specification vehicle, imported new in Nov 1973. I do not have the handbook and have been unable to confirm whether it should. I can find no evidence of any parts missing, so have concluded that it shouldn't be fitted.

Thanks,
Andy

Hi Andy,

I cannot not answer your question but I can give you a hint how to find out very easy if your car has a central locking system.
If you take a look to the locking mechanism in the trunk you will see, if there is a vaccum driven actuator or not. If you don't have one, your car won't have a CLS.
Here you can see the actuator at the 2nd an 4th picture.

Best regards Martin

Dear Andy,

a look into the data card of your SLmight help. Central locking was an extra. If it has been ordered you find it in box 46 with a 6, means 466: central locking.

Best regards

Viele Grüße aus Berlin

Hi Andy,

you can also check whether you have the central locking reservoir in right fender consisting of 15 balls. It was not installed by default, only when ordered.

Thank you all for taking the time to answer.
My car was not built with central locking according to the datasheet.
Kind regards,
Andy
