  1. trip computer replacement for MY 98

    W163 M-Class
    I think I best apologize to you two. Between my wife having a stroke and business overload I had totally zoned out on keeping up with this. Sorry guys. (fyi all ok now) Ok so back to tripin out... Could this be a fuse issue or did the previous test rule that out? Is it possible to repair...
  2. Suspension squeeeeeek

    W163 M-Class
    I have a squeak that is driving me nuts. I completely rebuilt the front suspension 3 years ago. If it had a bushing or was connected it got replaced lol. Was going to do pretty much the same on the back end. My local mech says it is just the lower rear a-arm bushing and it is endemic to the...
  3. 98 Headlight adjuster repair?

    W163 M-Class
    I finally got the vertical adjusters to work so now I have light further than 5 meters down the road on low ;-] However the lights seem to be aimed towards the left lane. I measured and marked on a wall and got the height but when I try to move them to the right I get no movement so I am...

  6. trip computer replacement for MY 98

    W163 M-Class
    My trip computer decided to stop displaying. Does anyone know a source for repair or replacement? I am located in west coast of Canada but US source would work too. Does anyone have any repair information on these? I don't have access to a electronics repair bench Right now but am wondering...
  7. DIY - Fuel pump remove & install

    W163 M-Class
    I believe he meant to say fuel filter upgrade. The level "sensor" is just a resistive strip (3 strips actually ) and works in the same way a volumee control does. As the float goes up and down the resistance changes and thats what you see in your gauge. The problem is the resistive strips will...
  8. Butter?

    W163 M-Class
    The oil is Shell Rotella T6. That is a high detergent full synthetic for diesels. It is actually approved by MB for a few newer gas engine models as well. My 320 has over 350k on it and When I bought it it had a damn Jiffy lube sticker in the window so someone had cheaped out on oil changes and...
  9. Butter?

    W163 M-Class
    I know the 163's were prone to get the peanut butter using the dino oils but I was a bit surprised to see something more akin to soft half molten butter when I opened my oil cap today. I had just driven around town maybe 10-12km and come home and decided to check my levels. I was a bit low...
  10. Lift Gate Panel Removal

    W163 M-Class
    I replaced my rear washer pump and when I went to try it out it of course didnt spray out. I thought I was going to have a problem in the lines somewhere but as soon as I got to the back I saw a nice dripping going on out of the bottom of the lift gate/back hatch (what ever its called lol). So...
  11. Sunroof cleaning

    W163 M-Class
    I have to park my ML near a big pine tree at home so of course I get all the needles and crap all over and some has gone into the track area of the sunroof. I dont really want to slide it open and cause more junk to get pushed in. Is there a way I can remove the glass so I can get in to clear it...
  12. Front End rebuild - tie rod ends

    W163 M-Class
    Just as an FYI i did end up getting new moog tie rod ends as well as kyb front shocks, upper control arm assembly (so new bushings and ball joint), sway bar link kits, brembo brakes and pads. And indie was told to replace anything he ran across that was worn or suspect. After that and a bunch of...
  13. Front end rebuild and udder stuff

    W163 M-Class
    Andy the pan was dropped so that the filter could be replaced and the particles on the magnets and on the pan bottom be inspected, also the converter was drained. So other than possibly a few ounces of fluid all of it is new. The fluid definitely was tired. No entry in the book so no real idea...
  14. Front end rebuild and udder stuff

    W163 M-Class
    Just got my 98 back from the shop after replacing a bunch of parts wow what a difference. I put new kybs in. The old ones were so shot that one rod would not even come back out of the cartridge out of the vehicle and the other side took forever. Nice ride not harsh at all and not too soft. Much...
  15. Torsion bar troubles BEWARE

    W163 M-Class
    If you measure the top of the arch of the wheel wells, aka the highest points. The front should be about the same as the rear or as much as 2cm (~1 inch) lower than the rear height. That was the dimensions we got from factory press release pictures and a couple of guys who had the setup done at...
  16. Torsion bar troubles BEWARE

    W163 M-Class
    Hope it works but mine were that far and even the suspension shop that was tryng to fix it ended up cutting a hole in the side of the mount box to get a wrench on it. The welded it back together and I cant even tell it was done.
  17. AC DIY refill? Yay or Nay

    W163 M-Class
    When its all behaving how well does it work? On mine it really doesn't cool that much I suspect low Freon but really doesn't push that much air either. Winter up here is another issue. Have anew thermostat that will hopefully fix that part of it.
  18. AC DIY refill? Yay or Nay

    W163 M-Class
    We had a house in Payson and the rest of the outlaws live in the valley so I "know" it just doesn't get "that" hot down there lol My air definitely wouldn't cut it down there. How well does yours cope with the dry heat?
  19. Front End rebuild - tie rod ends

    W163 M-Class
    I just hit 360k on my98. It was very well taken care of up until about 2 years before I bought it then not so sure. The only reason I am wondering about this is simply they are doing everything but these and will have everything apart. The steering is tight and was inspected late last year when...
  20. Front End rebuild - tie rod ends

    W163 M-Class
    Just waiting for the last of my bits I ordered to arrive and I realized the only thing I haven't ordered was the tie rod ends. Just wondering if I should replace them or just wait until needed. No problems with them so far. Also should I order right and left as well as the inner one? Assuming...
