Hi,

I need to replace my timing chain tensioner and I cant install/access WIS.

my car is 2002 G400 CDI.

can someone help me and print the procedure so I can do the task?

(no hard copy needed - PDF or Microsoft document will be fine, BTW pdf995.com is a free tool to print into PDF file instead of papers :)

if you willing to help please let me know,
Thx in advance.

perhaps i can assist in installing wis? post some errors, etc. there are lots of procedures along the way for wat you need, and they are all linked to each-other.

ikeakayke,
thx for you kindness, the copy I have is from ebay and appear to be bad so it will take few days till I get the new one.
meanwhile, I am trying to download one..
I wanted to make the job tomorrow since I dont like the sound of ignition (but like to drive :) )

i think that any wis version contains all the information regarding everything mb prior to that date. you just enter your vin number and you got access to all the details regarding your car.

I don't have the min/max levels engraved on the bottle but I remember reading somewhere that the min/max is the bottom/top of the flat bottle corner (see in pic). It also correspons with the cooler level sensor. Below that I get the error in IC.

i'm glad i could help!
1. no, i didn't disassemble the A/C radiator ie didn't remove the A/C lines but you have to take it off the coolant radiator.
2. i'm no mechanic or anything, just a hobbist and the first time i'm doing something new, i take my time... I also had to replace/repair some additional stuff while i was at it... So to answer your q it took me about 15h

Hi
I got WIS 07.10 (2 DVDs, 4.15GB and 7.13GB).
installed as in the instruction manual, but when in EWA NET and trying to go to "Workshop" menu I get blank screen.
I tried to do all the rest and now I can get the WIS/ASRA program but everything is empty and cant find my VIN.

is there a different procedure for new WIS?
also, the Admin tool cant find EPC on my DVDs..

Thx

hi all,
just an update-
I replaced the tensioner.
took me 2.5 days in a well equipped workshop.
also, replaced the belt and the 2 rollers (static and tensioner).

my tips for those who tend to do the same job in the future:
- make sure your local dealer is working while you do the job (I had to wait for parts I wasnt thinking of replacing).
- be prepared for hard work.
- make sure you have a lift to lift the car.
- make sure you have all the manuals from WIS printed before work begin.
- use some grease to allow easy fit of the water o-rings back.

thx a lot ikeakayke - it was impossible without your help.
