PCB Retro-fitted within the EIS which has been used to manipulate the vehicle Mileage
Has anyone come across the below on a Mercedes 2013 SLK.?
Merc Engineer Report:-
Please find attached our findings after the investigation into mileage discrepancies. You will see the two test print outs which show distance in kilometres, the initial test 30791.0km and test after New EIS fitted 36355.0km, a difference of 3457 miles, this isn’t something we would have noticed until you highlighted the mileage discrepancy.
Once I noticed the difference on the test prints I looked at the part which had been replaced, you will see from one of the photos the sticker covering one of the screw holes has been broken to access the screw. There is no reason for anyone to open this unit so this shows someone has been in a tampered with the unit. You will then see from the additional images a PCB has been retro-fitted within the EIS which has been used to manipulate the vehicle mileage.
I can supply Photos of the PCB if any one is interested ?
I wonder if any one has come across this before?
Sorry new to the forum, and just brought this car my first Mercedes.
