  1. 01 E55 brakes and rotors

    W210 E50 AMG, E55 AMG
    Today was the first time I did high speed, heavy braking with these. Imagine going flat out and reaching the end of your tether. Our ears popped we decelerated so quickly. Apparently I am an A-hole too as it also messed up my girl's hair. I didn't even know that could happen!
  2. 01 E55 brakes and rotors

    W210 E50 AMG, E55 AMG
    Lifetime Guarantee and best price on rotors STOP THE PRESSES!!! Do I have a source of Uber high quality brake parts for you! These are American manufactured and incredible guarantee. OEM are great but on my W210 4Matic they do not last very long at all. I have gone through two sets in the...

    W210 E-Class
    Yes- a lathe would have been a godsend but this is SUCH a simple part to make you can do it with the bare essentials.
  4. PHOTO DIY- SHIFTER BUSHING REPLACEMENT

    W210 E-Class
    Why I will never replace another shift bushing This is why I will never replace another cursed plastic shift bushing in my Benz. The factory plastic parts are designed to fail and this whole thread is about their replacement due to failure. Why plastic? Call me a cynic but probably so the...
  5. Has there been a safety recall?

    MB Safety & Testimonials
    I'm SURE that is what they will say! Here's my idea- bring a voltage inverter and shop vac with me everywhere I go. Then, when the air flow is misdirected turn on the shop vac and vacuum the dash vents to force the internal flap to reset and blow at the seats..... that might actually work... I...

  7. Has there been a safety recall?

    MB Safety & Testimonials
    When running the a/c the car (as is typical) starts blowing onto the windscreen. If you read the threads this is typical of virtually all Benzs with age. There is a vacuum container that loses vacuum which causes the outlet to switch to the windscreen instead of blowing on the seats. Even if...
  8. Re-charging AC with R12 Alternative - illustrated guide

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Topping off an R12 system is how I originally got into EnviroSafe. In a 560 SEL the A/C system needed a little more refrigerant. R12 was the evil elixir at that point so I wanted to find something that was fully miscible with R12. That is when I found EnviroSafe. To top up the system took...
  9. Has there been a safety recall?

    MB Safety & Testimonials
    Today, the Temperature was 85 F, the Heat Index was 93 F, the Dew Point was 73.4 F, and the Relative Humidity was 70%. My Benz had the typical "blow on the windscreen instead of the passengers" issue every single damn Benz develops. Problem is the windscreen quickly clouded with condensation...

  11. Strange Electrical Issue E320 Wagon

    W210 E-Class
    I could bring it back to the body shop but I have a problem with giving the car back to someone who screwed it up so badly in the first place. I am a cynic but figure he might finish the job!
  12. Strange Electrical Issue E320 Wagon

    W210 E-Class
    Alright, this is a weird one. I just got my 1999 E320 4matic wagon back from the body shop. While they had it they replaced the driver's door and removed the driver's fender. The issue is when any door in the car is opened, only the rear compartment lights come on. The front passenger...
  13. Strange electrical issue

    General Mercedes-Benz
    The car was in virtually perfect condition prior to "the incident". I live in Florida. The AVERAGE driving age is about 109. The argument is 'you can't take away the elderly's last freedom' (read that as: "right to commit vehicular homicide"). A person who couldn't see past the steering...

  15. Strange electrical issue

    General Mercedes-Benz
    I agree, and therein lies my problem. Should I give the moron who screwed it up in the first place further ability to screw it up even worse? Unfortunately, using cattle prods on people is still against the law.
