TROUBLESHOOTING.
My 78 Benz has a tappits that has seized and have never needed to fix this problem.
Also the power steering belt needs tightening.

Any insight is appreciated.

Seized? How long has it been sitting?

Top five reasons I posted in your topic:

1. You're talking about god, there has never been any god of any kind. EVER!

2. I just have a general dislike of you.

3. I am trying to tell you how to fix your Mercedes and you are not listening.

4. I'm flirting with Jody.

5. You're just to dumb to own a Mercedes, and should go buy a Honda.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
