As what Azinn said Please read. The campaign is not a recall. They will only inspect AND IF NEED replace the harmonic balancer.

I thought he was BS'ing me just to make me feel better about them doing a free service for me.

If left at dealer discretion then I think there is room to get it done even if it ain't broken.

I called a local stealer, they said unless I have a letter they cannot give me any info even if I have my vin ready to give them. So they tell me to call MBUSA.

I call MB I say i have a ML55 and CLK55, he says no ML's are affected at all? I asked him 2 more times, same response. Ok then this is weird. I then ask him, how come guys online in benz forums are getting their ML's taken care of. MB rep asks if I got a letter, I say no, they say well you will get one eventually if yours is in the campaign and to just wait for it, Bye.

Thanks for the great informative service MB....

Here's a link that explains it. The part number is important in all this, but

I believe all MLs are involved. I asked my SA just this afternoon and he confirmed that it was not just a ckeck and replace. If you have the letter you'll have it replaced. Click <a href="http://www.mercedesshop.com/shopforum/showthread.php3?t=119790">here</a> for the link.

Did you read the previous thread? http://www.benzworld.org/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=1206075&mid=1454697&fid=29#M1454697

If you have one of the two affected part numbers it is considered "needed", and they will replace it. No apparent damage is required. I called my SA after confriming my part number and have an appointment for this Friday--no letter needed.
