I just had a diagnostic performed and my mechanic recommended replacing the Balance Shaft- at an estimated repair of $5200 Cdn.

I bought the car about a year ago from a dealer along with an extended warranty from Lubrico.

I currently have 85,000k on my car but the problem was preliminarily diagnosed at approx 80,075km- just 75km over the factory warranty.

My questions are:
1) Is this a known issue with this Mercedes model and year??;
2) Is there anyway Mercedes would honour factory warranty, even though I was only a measly 75 kilometres over?;
3) Are there any credits I could obtain from Mercedes post warranty?;
4) If repaired, can I expect any more issues stemming from the balance shaft?
