  1. Camshaft Timing Advanced

    W164 M-Class
    And here is your vehicles Datacard for your records.
  2. Misfire on cylinder 1

    W203 C-Class
    It could be many things, even a bad spark plug. I would pull the plug first just to give it a visual and make sure it's intact. Then if the code persists, swap coil packs and see if the misfire follows. I had a random coil pack die out of the blue on one of my other MB vehicles. I was in a...
  3. Can anyone here look up my options sheet if I gave my VIN?

    W164 M-Class
    LOL. That certainly explains a lot.
  4. 2007 C280 4matic - no heat on driver side only

    W203 C-Class
    My son and I are going to tackle this in Spring on his C230 once it warms up. He also has the sticky/broken footwell flap "click of death". From what I have read, the dash removal really isn't that difficult. It's just a very large "time suck" as there are lots of things to remove on your way...
  5. Advice on repairing M272 Balance Shaft/Timing Chain

    W203 C-Class
    Coincidentally, it just happened again yesterday. I heard the rattle for the first time in months and added 1/2qt of oil. This morning, she started up quietly.
  6. C230 with a STICK in Arizona (from German)

    W203 C-Class
    My son's 2004 C230 Kompressor is a 6 speed manual. USA version. Fun car to drive!
  7. Stop that power steering leak

    W164 M-Class
    Well, what's done is done but replacing the seals is really not a big deal at all... it's a small handful of o-rings. Mercedes even has a repair kit with everything included (see below) You should be sure to get the old steering rack back. It definitely has value as is, or you could replace...
  8. Steering wheel compatibility

    W164 M-Class
    LOL. You've been warned! Once you have retrofitted a few missing options, you will want them ALL. It's a sickness. :ROFLMAO:
  9. 2010 GLK350 4MATIC Transfer case leaking and drive shaft loose

    X204 GLK-Class
    I am sorry for your trouble, transmission problem are no certainly no fun. But your statement is demonstrably false. You most certainly CAN repair both, it is done all the time. In fact there is a thread in one of the SUV forums where a user is rebuilding his 722.9 transmission himself as we...
  10. Advice on repairing M272 Balance Shaft/Timing Chain

    W203 C-Class
    I understand the tremendous frustration with the balance shaft issue, but I (and most in the 164) forum would disagree with this blanket statement. I have two vehicles with M272's and they have, and continue to perform wonderfully. Luckily, neither were affected by the balance shaft problem...
  11. Parking brake pedal assembly

    X204 GLK-Class
    I recently had to replace the parking brake pedal on my sons C230, and from what I have seen in the EPC the vast majority of MB vehicles share the same one or two parts. There are two brass Torx screws on the backside on the pedal that appear to hold the coiled spring in place. The brake pedal...
  12. Oil buildup at the bottom of the ac compressor

    W164 M-Class
    I wish all my leaks were that clean! 😆
  13. Speedometer Discrepancy

    W164 M-Class
    Hey all, I am not a "Type A" person, and I realize this is a super minor thing, but every day I see this and it bugs me! There is a 1-2 mph discrepancy between the analog and digital speedometer at all speeds. If I increase to 72, the analog speedometer is spot-on at 70. Presumably they both...
  14. Baby Seat Recommendations

    X204 GLK-Class
    Another option. This baby seat manufacture make an "angle adjuster" pad which allegedly gives you several inches of additional space. $14 on Amazon.
  15. Fuel warning light kills engine

    W203 C-Class
    Interesting! What is the fix for "saddle tank syndrome" in the diesel world?
  16. W166 08 ml 63 amg auto trunklid not operating?

    W164 M-Class
    THIS! I thought I was the only one. 😆 I have had to teach my entire family how to pop the latch handle when it sticks. I have lubed the piss out of it. Yet, 1 out of 6 times it decides to stick and not return to its home position. I should just bite the bullet and replace it, but it‘s low on...
  17. Ml500 / Transmission 722.9

    W164 M-Class
    Please be sure to finish, as I am loving this thread! A fascinating and ambitious project. Bravo, man. I’ve done a lot of work on our families Mercedes, but when it comes to my ML’s transmission I feel like a teenage boy seeing his first girlfriend naked. Excited by the prospect of exploring...
  18. CO2 Emissions

    X204 GLK-Class
    Or that Canadian beer is magically "stronger" (or US beer weaker). I have heard both a lot. 😆
  19. Continuous loud noise under engine when ignition off and key out

    W203 C-Class
    When you hear the noise, put your hand on the auxiliary coolant pump (green arrow) and see if it is running. You could also pull the electrical connector to see if the noise stops. This is most likely the noise you here and not a cause for concern.
