Am having flex disks and gearbox selector bushing replaced today. Both things need doing - disks are looking old and will probably see cracks when they are off. Selector bushing is no longer there.

I replaced the fuel tank. The original tank rusted in the filler neck area and was seeping Diesel.

Just replaced the plugs, wires and coil packs on my 2000 e320. I put the job off for so long because I was really scared of the tight clearance on the rear 2 cylinders, but the job wasn't that bad with a 3 inch ratchet extension. Mileage: 166,500.

W210 Estate - Replaced Throttle Position Sensor

This was such an easy thing to do.

PROBLEM: after depressing the accelerator pedal agressively, the car would become almost unresponsive. Had to turn car off and back on again to accelerate.

SOLUTION: replaced TPS. Took 10 minutes and the problem went away.

Replaced the hood struts in 10 minutes or less thanks to this simple tutorial, without which I would have been flummoxed.

Got pulled over 2 times within 20 miles for a tail light bulb out!

I really need to get off of my arse to fix that silly Bulb Malfunction message! Ugh.

For the 2002 E430, today I swapped out the sagging seat back pocket behind driver seat that's been buggin me for a while. I picked up a set of 2 seatbacks from eBay good condition and in matching color. Now I have a spare! A reminder for anyone doing this the 2 screws on the bottom are Torx 15 and be very careful when removing the little rectangular night light.

Also, passenger side windshield spray nozzle was not spraying while driver side nozzle stream was weak. I removed the passenger side spray nozzle assembly and reattached the hose that has a tendency to slip off on their own. This is not my first time with this problem- last year it was the driver side hose that came off, and I've had it happen in my old 2000 E320 in the past.
