    noise when starting engine mainly from cold (e220 cdi w212 2014)

    Had the exact same problem on a 2010 E200 CDI, only when cold, sounds like a rattle / belt squeak, got worse over time but always stopped after about 1 minute , often had people in car parks saying “your car sounds sick mate” in with dealer 3 times and they never found the issue

    W212 Facelift E250 Transmission issues

    Hey All, So, the update it, the mechanic while driving was able to recreate the fault, Looks like the tranny is coming out for inspection and possibly a TCU / Valve (?) replacement, up to 7 days in dealership!, I am happy they didn't fob me off and are taking it seriously
