  1. Inexplicable Vibrations at ~70mph

    W220 S-Class
    I’ve ordered 4 ABC struts. They need replacing, there’s no way around it. The rubber bushing trick helped quite a bit, but I’m hesitant to leave it as a permanent solution because I do think it changes the level of the car, no? And can this rubber bushing trick be applied to the back struts...
  2. Do your O2 sensors

    W220 S-Class
    Sorry for not replying sooner, I was busy being banned for being “racist” against a religious group (it makes no sense to me either). The car has something like 210-220k miles on it. The O2 sensors had white sort of shitty crap all over them, but i’m not going to read much into that because of...

    Which bushings did you find? The oxygen sensors removed an engine vibration, which wasn’t related to the driveline vibration I’m hunting. But, replacing them caused the engine to run so smooth I had an orgasm and had to share with everyone. I’m still skeptical on the bushings because they are...

    Is it possible your leak is coming from somewhere else?

    Update on the vibration; After pulling the driveshaft, the joint had a bit of clunking in it at the joint. I did some research and I’m going to have it remanufactured. Cost: $450 w/tax. The differential is nice and stuck in there, I initially suspected that might be causing trouble. I have a...

    Wow; What I meant with my comment about jews was stinginess/accountants engineering cars.... which is exactly what happened under Jürgen Schrempp. Wow y’all are a sensitive bunch
  8. Do your O2 sensors

    W220 S-Class
    I just replaced all four oxygen sensors on the S 500, and i’m kicking myself for not having done it a long time ago. The recommended interval is 100,000 miles, and I’m pretty sure mine were never replaced in 200,000 miles. I did not know the engine could be as smooth as it is right now. I...

    ROUND 3, I THINK I FOUND THE VIBRATION I had the car lifted today to do the Oxygen sensors and Transmission mount. While there I decided to check the ball joints by lifting the tire. There was a lot of play when lifting it, much more than there should be, but it wasn’t coming from the ball...

    I don’t mean to upset anyone with that statement, but Mercedes themselves admitted (as far as they could) that under Jürgen Schrempp the engineering took a total nosedive, and quality suffered as a result. Mercedes spent a full $1 Billion in 1990’s money designing/building the W140. Not so...

    Here's another thread describing the same thing. https://www.benzworld.org/forums/w220-s-class/1472038-cannot-get-rid-vibration-please-help.html Hub discs are a recommendation, but I think that's for aftermarket wheels. Another suggestion is electric tape around the hub. I might give that a...

    I will give this a try, b/c I'm going crazy. Here is my thread: https://www.benzworld.org/forums/w220-s-class/2546433-inexplicable-vibrations-70mph.html

    Sit. Rep. Harmonic Balancer - Replaced. Engine Mounts - Replaced. Transmission Mount - reseated. Wheels - Balanced. Still have a vibration/wobble while driving. It seems to propagate through the car as I go over speed bumps or similar. Something else I noticed is a slight vibration/wobble...

    I don’t know where you’re buying, but this is not my experience at all... like no. It should be noted, Genuine Mercedes is different from “OEM” or “OES”. Lemfoerder (OEM) engine mount: $72 from ECStuning Genuine Mercedes engine mount: $183 Corteco (OEM) Harmonic Damper: $82 Genuine Mercedes...
