    w210 estate seat set wanted

    Hi, is anyone breaking a 210 estate? I've got an e300td 7 seater which I run as a taxi. It has the pop up booster seats in the back. Problem is that the covers are light grey cloth which gets stained easily. For preference I'd rather have leather. Alternatively, if anyone knows where I can...

    e300td s210 number 6 glow plug and oil filter housing

    I've squirted some more gunk around the electrode and a bit of silicone gtease on top of that. Also squirted all the bolts with liquid wrench. Think I'll order some more odd size torx bits too and give those a shot when get back on Saturday.

    e300td s210 number 6 glow plug and oil filter housing

    The E300TD is being prepared as a back or replacement for the E220CDI as a taxi. The 220 needs looking at at the moment so when I get back I'm going to have to use my personal car as a taxi (E39 BMW 530D sport), whilst I sort the Mercs out. Just wondering, if it's carbon that's holding the...

    e300td s210 number 6 glow plug and oil filter housing

    Not getting anywhere with this bolt that's blocking the bottom one on the oil filter housing. It doesn't seem to fit the torx bits very well. Tried the bits on the sister bolts to that one and they seem a sloppy fit. Is there an oddball size that MB use on some bolts? T40 is definitely too big...

    e300td s210 number 6 glow plug and oil filter housing

    If anyone is reading this thread, should I put all the bits back and run the engine with the bonnet up, the air intake off and something to shield or deflect the the electrode if it decides to blow out?

    e300td s210 number 6 glow plug and oil filter housing

    Almost there with the oil filter housing, I hope. Why is there always something else in the way with these things? Every bolt is an absolute pig to get at. Looks like, if I undo three of them the housing may swivel. But they're all awkward as hell and they're all torxes. To add insult to injury...

    e300td s210 number 6 glow plug and oil filter housing

    Update: No chance of cutting a thread on the end of the electrode, there just isn't room. Maybe if I had a socket type die but even then the oil filter housing is still in the way. Anyway, so far I have drained the oil and whilst doing so I noticed that there is a slight leak from somewhere...

    e300td s210 number 6 glow plug and oil filter housing

    Further to my last. The kit I have is the laser 5205 and I've been following the video. How easy it looks when the engine block is sitting on a workshop floor - lol. There was a better looking kit advertised (Klann I think) but I couldn't find one anywhere. I've managed to get the hex part off...

    e300td s210 number 6 glow plug and oil filter housing

    Hi, Just wondering, on the s210 e300td can the oil filter housing be moved without draining the engine? I was wondering if it was possible to maybe undo a couple of bolts and rotate it a little - or will I have to drain the oil and take the housing off completely? Reason is that the number 6...
