Sorry about your problem with Stead's in Wanut Creek, I heard that they were bad.
You might have no choice but to go back to the SF dealer. But, I hate them.
If I were you I would NEVER, EVER go to the San Francisco Mercedes dealership.
Not ever, for anything.
I went there years ago, when I lived there, and they were a disaster, they couldn't fix my car, misdiagnosed the problem and laughed at me when I took the car back. finally had to get a chargeback on my credit card.
Go to RAB Motors in San Rafael, if you want to go to a dealer. David Santy is head of the Service Department, and he is pretty good, he is involved with the MBCA and has put on tech sessions and tours for the MB enthusiasts.
There is a poster here, at Benzworld, called "JoshuaJeeper" who is a service writer, at RAB who I think could help you. Mention Jim B. from benzworld, that is me, I talked to him here once, and maybe that would help.
RAB also used to give a 10-15% discount on work to MBCA members, I dont know if you are one, or if they still do, it wouldn't hurt to ask, with labor at $130 perhour or more (I think, haven't been back for around 3 yrs.)
