New owner of a Unimog 404

Postby Nathan0869 » Fri Mar 18, 2016 2:23 pm

Hi all!
as the subject says I'm a new Unimog owner, fell in love with the a few years back and just recently was able to buy one!
I have a couple questions I would like to ask!
the gentlemen I bough my Mog from said it has break issues, as in sticking.
he said he has them fix and then let it sit for a year, could it be that the wheel cylinders need rebuilt, cleaned up, or replaced? or could it be the break pads need adjusted?
one final question
one of the back running lights don't work. is the wiring and such easy to get to, too fix if needed..
never messed with a Unimog before its hard to find a shop manual as I am finding out!


thanks
Nathan

You could try Unipaser in CA.

You could try Buch + Bild in Germany as well. They publish the stuff.
