Per the MOTOR TREND review:
And that whine? While various editors speculate it might be a lube-deprived driveshaft or a tranny output shaft in need of a squirt, it turned out to be an engine guide pulley gone bad. According to the dealer, the faulty idler pulley is a common problem in GLs; luckily, it wasn't a major issue and was covered under warranty.
This has been a MB issue for how many years/decades?
'87 300E: sold after 11years @ 230k & still on the road somewhere in rural Tennessee.
'94 C220 with 93k totalled 10/06 by hit & run broadsiding monster truck: not a scratch or bruise for me
