    W163 M-Class
    Will a radio without navigation work in place of one that does? Just only wanting to listen to the radio. I found a radio out of a 2000 ML320 for $15 at junk yard that doesn't have that plug port in the upper right hand corner of the rear of the radio. (I assume that port is for the GPS...

    Trying to see if my search info is correct for which ball joint socket tool is needed for Lemforder and Moog ball joints. From searching, it looks like the Mercedes ball joint socket works with Lemforder ball joint but not the Moog ball joint. OTC 7158 works with the Moog ball joint but is a...

    If I have the dealer remove/reprogram the TeleAid error from my ECM, due to removing the TeleAid from the vehicle, will storing the vehicle for extended periods with the battery removed clear the deactivation code from the ECM? Is there a way to put a resistor inline to trick the ECM to...

  13. Rotors Worn 1/16", Pads Good, Replace?

    W163 M-Class
    My front rotors are worn 1/16" or 1.6 mm each side. The pads have plenty of life left in them. Looked over the caliper and there is no rubbing or tight clearances. Do I need to replace the rotors (and pads) with this much wear or do I just replace the rotors when pads need replaced?
