This is an open thread for your suggestions for modifications to the DIY sticky threads in the W210 forum.

Don't post here asking where to find a particular DIY article.
Don't post general help questions in this thread.
Don't simply put the DIY article within this thread.
Don't otherwise take this thread off-topic. Off-topic posts will be deleted.

Do post a follow-up in this thread, containing a LINK to the thread which contains what you feel to be a good DIY article. You may nominate your own thread. Do post your comments to links posted by others.

When posting comments about the content of the DIY thread in question, please say if you have performed the procedure. If you think what we already have linked is better and the new thread adds nothing, say so. Other critiques, such as style, are also appropriate and the originator of the thread may want to go back and make modifications.

We need YOUR input to get the best possible material included in these pages.

Once a discussion has run its course, expect to see the link added to the DIY thread (or not) and the discussion deleted to keep the thread from growing.

Is this in the diy section?

and if not it really needs a special place of it's own as one of the most valuable money savers.

MRBSMITH really took up the ball when I dropped the solution on him and he carried the diagnostics through from testing to removal,pictures,and a complete diy.It has been referenced on other forums and I think needs a category of its own in the diy's.
I have not read through the whole thread lately to see if checking for broken wires before declaring the sensor dead is included and if not that might need to be added.
If I missed it in the diy's can someone point it out,if it is not there it really needs to be:thumbsup:

Dood. Look two posts above yours at mine from 6/30, nominating the same thread, albeit requiring some cleanup in the thread, it's sort of a mess. :rolleyes:

Not at all, but just noting it and giving it a thumbsup would be the same as a new post, no?

Interesting typo....most offices do have some manner of kink in them, right? :D

My guess is that Matt doesn't have the time to clean up that thread, but when he does it will be added.

You guessed correctly, Greg.

I will do it one of these days. You know, when I get some spare time. I'll try to do it before too long.

Probably won't come up too often, but I think cleverpig's post about his oil leak is worthy of inclusion:

http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w210-e-class/1327051-1998-e320-oil-leak.html

I'd respectfully suggest editing out johnamoss' post that proved to be a red herring, as well as my and ohlord's rejoinders as were hashing around that (and probably 1998mbe320's inquiry that was also OT at that point). Although, those are referential to a specific leak on a specific year, so instead of just dumping them, instead perhaps carve them into their own thread as a useful sticky for a very pointed potential trouble spot for a leak.

Take care and enjoy the ride, Matt (at least when you're not moderating!),
Greg

The forthcoming text will make it complete, but just as a follow-the-pictures yachtmaster's window slider repair should be included:

Thanks Greg,
Text is done, I know Matt is a busy guy, so I may have a few days to correct, improve, and make additions, but for the most part it is done.

Well, I've been swamped, but if I find time I may download the whole thing, clean it up and assemble the tasty bits as a PDF and send it your way, you can dump most the posts and just add the pdf. Whether I'd get to that before Thanksgiving is another story entirely. :D

Take care and enjoy the fall ride,
Greg
