Make sure the people doing this job dont get the powder coat inside .
I removed a cover a few weeks ago ,- i will say it was an older W124 and all the black paint of the outer cover was missing, and insidethe cover i found that the paint was bubbled up ready to fall off ,,,and most had fell in to the valve lifters and cam shaft . Worth looking at your cars guys with these mercedes that have black rocker boxes that are powder coated ,.This is the truth i know .And if you open up your rocker box covers of the older type you will see the same fault. I hope yours is not like the one i opened up
