    W204 rear indicator (led)

    Update on my lights, tested the led board and it was indeed faulty. New (second hand) lamp fitted and all working fine.

    W204 rear indicator (led)

    On another topic, involving the same car I found a rather strange hitchhiker in my o/s rear wing. Anyone know what this thing is? Was wired into the fusebox with a live and the skinny orange wire, earthed to the vehicle and had what looked like an aerial wrapped under the boot opening seal.

    Oil leak. M642 again.

    Wow, it’s a refreshing change to see someone who values skill and ability over who people know or where they are from. From the sounds of it you must have a very successful shop, and I take my hat off to you sir.

    Oil leak. M642 again.

    You must have people dying to work there. Here I’m lucky if I get a lift to work in the company van. 😂

    Oil leak. M642 again.

    Thank you for the praise, it was a tough one to get done in a day and if I’m honest, I only managed it as I literally had no breaks to speak of. I think I had 1 coffee and a snack bar all day.

    OM642 oil cooler

    Very sensible shop rules, I did clean the threads on the exhaust flanges and fit new bolts when reassembled. I guess over in the states cars cover much more distance than over here in Britain. Mine is a 2008 model and still feels really good to drive, mostly due to the lower miles I think.

    I have indeed fitted the newer purple ones to the cooler and my car has 73800 on the clock. Mainly used by me on motorway and A roads. No idea how previous owner drive though.

    OM642 oil cooler

    Hello, yes the gas leakage was pre existing. The flange bolt you see was in the middle of being drilled out because it was snapped in there. Not by me, I found it like that. I did indeed cap the ports during cleaning but unfortunately, during using my airline, the thing blew off and some crap...

    OM642 oil cooler

    I did clean the engine a bit more after the photos were taken too. And then its reverse procedure to get it all put back together again. Sorry if its not the clearest description or the best photos but I have tried my best to explain what I can. Please feel free if anyone has a question and I...

    OM642 oil cooler

    Now comes the fuel pipes and filter, I found it easier to remove the air boxes and take the fuel lines and rails completely off so i could get all the leak off pipes off and glow plug wiring too. In my opinion it made for easier access. To do this required me to also unbolt and loosen the wiring...

    OM642 oil cooler

    O.K. Here goes. Firstly remove the easy bit, bat wing comes off to access the general area you want. I then disconnected the top radiator hose from the thermostat housing. Next take off the aluminium turbo pipe by removing the screw and clamp at the bottom end (front of engine), and the bolt...

    OM642 oil cooler

    Hello, I decided to write this as yesterday I tackled the dreaded oil cooler on my C320 cdi. To start off, I will say that it is an absolute pig of a job. Especially if, like me, you get it apart finally and see signs of someone else having tried to tackle it beforehand. I had a snapped exhaust...
