I can thoroughly recommend Crabtree Service Station at Lancing West Sussex, England.

Our SL500 which is based in the UK, burst a hydraulic line from the steering pump to the steering box.
I managed to drive to this workshop without power steering, and the owner was kind enough to immediately put it up on an elevator and remove the burst pipe.
I had another hydraulic line made using the original Mercedes Benz end fittings, and the new line was refitted.
It needed a lot of patience and specialist tools given the inaccessibility of the connections to this hydraulic line.

I was very impressed with the ultra fast, and friendly service, and the cost was very reasonable too.

No trees were harmed creating this message, however some electrons were very inconvenienced.
