Been lurking on here for a few months as a guest, the Mrs has a C220 coupe, No problems to speakof there apart from the rust starting to show, she's getting some quotes for that soon.
My wheels, an OLD 1998 Vito 108d, hurriedly brought from a mate when the Saab 93 fuel pump died in the middle of a campsite, by the time the potential cost of getting home and repairing it had sunk in she was scrapped ( funny how cars are always she
So my mate offred his van, for a mates rates price with time to pay and a "few" things to look at, none too daunting, so with the help of EBay replaced the CV joint after looking on here how hard it would be, Piece of cake, new tyre, then fingers crossed,..seems i was a little optimistic tho`.
In the last week i've replaced the rear exhaust, refitted the centre exhaust, remade all the earths i can find (lighting problem hints obtained from forum), replaced the nearside and offside suspension arm balljoints, (thought it better to replace both at the same time) two new front discs, 4 new brake hoses, both rear brake pipes and both anti rollbars. and a side lamp bulb
Thanks to all those that posted information on here, gives plenty of confidence.
My tip for the bad earths i picked up years ago, after you've cleaned them up and its working, a lump of vaseline over the top to prevent it corroding again, (i also do this with the plugs and sockets).
Fingers crossed for the retest tomorrow (just missed the 10 day freeby)
then i can start on treating the rust.
start making storage for all my Kites, and somewhere to lay my weary bones after a days kitsurfing, yup you guessed it, its becoming my Day/overnight/camper van.
