    W210 320cdi - new diesel pump and swirl flaps deleted - problems!

    Ok so this problem persists! Car seems fine until it goes into kick down. Similar to before - kick down - surge- loss of power , smoke, juddering , pulled over and engine died. Restarted, very lumpy, lots of grey / dark grey ( not blue ) smoke. Revved it a bit, settled back into regular idle...

    W210 320cdi - new diesel pump and swirl flaps deleted - problems!

    Update - I found that I had not properly re- attached the pipes into and out of the intercooler and both had partially blown out! I am kicking myself but also hopeful this was the cause of the breakdown. I'm thinking a very sudden loss of boost would have caused over fuelling and hence all the...

    fuel line replace w210

    Meant to add I agree with blackc55, you might want to consider replacing all 3. The same components have to be removed to get to one of them. I did all 3 at once. Cost just under £100 in parts from MB Chelsea.

    w210 top of window frame rust. how to remove rubber seal?

    Hi all, I think the title says it all really. How do I remove the rubber trim/ seal (where the glass slots in with windows up ) in order to tackle rust bubbling up on top of door frame. Concious I could just yank it out but undoubtedly risk damaging it. Any insights much appreciated. Thank you

Although not so many 'relaxed weekends' in my house with 3 young kids - more a case of late nights after work ! Lots of research, the right tools & patience. Save money and have satisfaction and...
