    W212 350d 2016 engine/gearbox noise

    Good Afternoon, The source and correction of this unusual noise is now completed. A technician at my local dealership (Inchcape Cheshire Oaks) took the time to take the car out for an extended run so the noise could be replicated. His diagnosis was a faulty auxiliary oil pump which backs up the...

    W212 350d 2016 engine/gearbox noise

    Good evening, Firstly my apologies for not replying earlier to your suggestions, I'd been away. Thanks for the concensus it's not the gearbox, that's reassuring. I'd struggle to 'live with it' as i have a lot of mechanical sympathy and if it's making a noise, something is in conflict. I've got...

    W212 350d 2016 engine/gearbox noise

    Hi, I posted recently about an unusual noise coming from the drivers side of the engine bay, thought to be a gearbox related issue though there are no gearbox problems. I've attached an audio file recorded from the front drivers wheel arch. The noise only develops after an hours running, and...

    2016 W212 350d gearbox noise. 96k miles. Full MB SH.

    Hi there, An update from my original enquiry. It been suggested that this noise is originating from the 'eco boost pump' rather than the gearbox. As the gearbox seems to be faultless, and the noise only occurs when at rest or just starting off this seems to make some sort of sense. Would anyone...

    17" Staggered wheels for 2016 E Class

    A question about 17” wheels. I have a 2016 W212 350d with the AMG sportpack, 18” five spoke wheels and it has normal suspension (not sport). Over the winter I ran it on 17” winter wheels and the ride was noticeably plusher. I’m influenced towards comfort over sportiness and would prefer a good...

    Tyre pressure sensors

    Thanks, My local dealer was quoting £65 each, including VAT. I could see plenty on ebay etc, but understood they have to be a particular megahertz for the W212 to recognise it. It often confuses suppliers when I 'tick the box' to say its a 2016 model, as they then assume its a W213.

    Tyre pressure sensors

    Good Day all, I need a new set of tyre pressure sensors for a set of winter wheels I have bought, I don't really want to take them off my summer 18" alloys. The car is a W212 2016 350d. I understand you need a specific 'mhz' model of sensor, and wonder if anyone knew which Mercedes part (or any...

    Which Command Version on W212

    Thanks for your input. It does look as if I have the 5.1 system that is shown in Markjays last video, though I don't seem to have the access to the internet or apps as shown in the german videos. Perhaps I need to explore deeper. I'm confident its Command as its a 350d with the Premium and Plus...

    Which Command Version on W212

    Good Evening, I've just bought a March 2016 350d W212 (facelift, one of the last year). I'm trying to work out what version of Command I have. Quite a few members post pics of the face of the unit and suggest which software it would be...but how can I be sure? They can suggest either 4.5, 4.7...

    Command TomTom subscription

    Good Day, Just wondering if the ‘TomTom’ annual ‘live traffic’ subscription was a good investment? Does it merge well with the sat Nav and is it ‘live’ and real time? thanks for your advice
