4-Matic have front axle going right under (or above depends which way you look) the belly pans. Would that give you any clues?
Still something that would require raising the car, or at least parking on hight curb.
If you are such DIY why did you send wife to Jiffy Lube, instead of spending 10 minutes to do oil change on your driveway?
Be honest. We won't tell your wife
I been to California in February so I get why don't understand We had a big melt and got rid of most of snow but I have 4" to get off the driveway now. Anyway I jacked it up and it was real simple. The brake dust cover was jammed into the disk. 10 minutes with the impact and done deal and I didn't even have to lay in the snow! But here is something I don't want you tell her till I fix it: Her brake light (the center one is the window) is out. I took the bezel off and I can see the socket and bottom of the bulb but what is the easiest way to R&R the bulb? She will probably know about it soon enough cause that message center tells her everything that is wrong and she won't stop nagging till I fix it!

Sounds like a half-shaft rubbing on a belly pan that hasn't been reinstalled properly.

The decision now is whether to take it back to the morons that screwed it up in the first place or write a check to someone who knows what they are doing to set it right. The first choice may result in more damage than you have now; not to mention the possibility you'll wind up with sand in your CV boots or some other malicious pay-back for interrupting their weed smoking in the back.

It's pretty clear what choice I'd recommend. Maybe you can set it right yourself and save the few bucks having somebody else do it.

Welcome to the forum. This is a place where you'll get good advice and maybe a little razzing. There is a lot of experience working around Mercedes automobiles here, and most folks will help you all they can.
