    I think that VIN is "WDBRF52H47F917504". If so, it has M272 engine #574882, which is beyond the problem range.

    Can you tell me if VIN No. WDBF52H47F917504 has an engine affected by the balance shaft problem? Grandson is looking at this for his first car (108k) and I don't want him to end up with a $5k repair.

    Hi Rodney,
    This is Foamy, thank you so much for your reply. I have looked at the steering unit all around and can't find any wires leading to a solenoid. Also, I was always under the impression that a fuse was either blown or not, never intermittent. Your take on it sounds most likely that it's the solenoid and not the rack given the mileage.
    Again, thanks!

    Hi Rodney....can I ask you to decode this VIN so I can see if this car has the troubled balancing shaft. It's a 2008 C300

    Thanks

    Rudeney, you've been helpful on a few of my posts. Can you recommend a good MB parts online shop?

    I am looking purchase a 2006 C230 with VIN#: WDBRF52H76A869833. Vehicle has 69K miles and oil leaking from rear passenger side of engine. Told it was two (2) small gaskets that can be replaced for $300-$500. Dripping onto converter causing smoke and smell issues. Also sunroof opens fine but does not close smoothly. Any advice and/or direction is greatly appreciated.....
