E350 check engine light and engine noise issue
Let me first let me let all you know that there is a lot of good information on these forums and thanks for the information.
I have an issue with my 2006 E350. I am the original owner and currently have 47,700 miles. I have had an issue with my car for a couple years now. The engine runs smooth but make a noise like diesel engine. I brought the car in under warranty a couple times for the issue, but they could not hear it or identify it. Of course, after my warranty expried, about 3 months later, the engine light came on with these codes (I have access to mercedes certified techs outside of dealer to run codes):
P0016 Crankshaft Position –Camshaft Position Correlation Bank 1 Sensor A
P0017 Crankshaft Position –Camshaft Position Correlation Bank 1 Sensor B
Both of these sensors were replaced and the engine light went off for about a week, and now presents with the same codes. I have been told the codes and the sound have to do with the balance shaft. Is this the case in your experiences? If so, is it really a $5k service task?
Any other ideas out there?
Should I try to make an issue of it with the dealer, since it has already been documented as an issue a couple when I brought it in for the noise. The only reason I hesitate to do that is because I do not want that to have an impact on me if I decide to get an extended warranty to fix the problem.
Thanks for your input guys!

This is well known issue and MB should cover it. Talk to the service manager. If he does
not attempt to get good will from MB then have the dealer give you the contact info
for the regional MB manager in charge of your region.

Definitely hound the dealer particularly since it existed prior to the warranty expiration.
Check out this thread (particularly the pics!) at benz obsession to understand what's going under the engine covers.

Dealer should refer to Dealer Technical Bulletin (DTB) S-B-03.30/08j for information on balance shaft problems.
