    Engine wiring harness

    Subyland - thanks for the quote, at current exchange rates, that works out at about £55 which is not bad since it costs £88 from a UK MB Dealer. What is the method for ordering and payment based upon the fact that this is a foreign exchange.

    veg oil in e220 cdi?

    Sugar free Vimto would be tax free (if you can make it run), the Chancellor only applies Duty when burning hydro-carbon based fuels and for some reason Veggie Oil comes under that category. Interesting to note that most home producers of bio-diesel in continental Europe are not required to pay...

    veg oil in e220 cdi?

    This is an area of interest I have been pursuing for some time, veggie oil is not the same as commercially produced bio-fuel, it goes through a chemical conversion process (transesterification) to remove the glycerin content.

Does anyone have further...

    C220 CDI W203 - Help

    The pulley you have marked is the tensioner pulley, it is a self contained self-tensioned unit and is easy to replace, they are normally quite robust on these engines. Your dealer is refering to the alternator pulley which has a free-wheel clutch inside it on 220 CDi models and has a tendancy to...
