After a year or so of cold start rattle and being told by several Mercedes Tech's it's normal I'm finally going to change all 4 cam adjusters. Not an easy job but no choice if I want a quiet engine on first start up. I will attempt it without removing the engine but may remove if needed. I will update and post pictures as I go.

Not much progress as this is a spare car and not very motivated to mess with. I did start removing some of the front pulleys and alternator. I received the new cam adjusters / gears so I need to get started on this project. FYI the adjusters are aftermarket ones off ebay, quality looks good. Phaser wheels are new OEM.

Removed all cam adjusters and cams, reassembled and checked timing. My cam timing is correct but the harmonic balancer timing is advanced, need to disassemble and rest balancer at 40 degrees then rest cam gears.
