Hi everyone, new to the site although I have been reading posts for quite a while!!
Bought a 163 270CDI 2004 in January, reasonable price, needed some work, 70,000miles.
Loved it straight away and I'm hoping things will be even better once I have it back on the road after a couple of months in my garage!!
Briefly, put it into a Mercedes garage as I had the dreaded heater go cold so it could be put on the machine. Best £45 I ever spent, although I still have the heater problem, more in a minute.
Basically needed 4 bottom ball joints, 2 rear springs, number 5 glow plug and they would do that for 3 grand!!!
The heater they said is a CAN fault but at the moment its a CANT fault!!! I will be looking at more threads and posting some help me pleas soon.
So Hi once again.
