    I went the Amazon route too - Bild Hamer stuff works very well and bundled with a gun it seemed good value too.

    Whiny PAS pump - R129 SL500

    When the car is cold i get a really whiny noise from the PAS pump. As soon as it gets warm it seems to settle down. Im taking it in for a service at Merc but before i do does anyone have an idea what it may be. Levels look fine for fluid etc and no play on belts. Thanks

    R129 Heated seat issue

    Only the back of the seat gets hot on my SL500. Its a MY2000. The Passenger seat works fine, but the base of the drivers seat stays cold while the back gets warm. Any ideas?
