    CLK 722.6 Gearbox issues

    Its the wrong gearbox. It needs to be exactly the same number. Been there and got the T shirt. NOT one single second hand gearbox that I've been supplied in 22 years has worked when I have fitted it.

    Start/Stop Linked to Timing Chain?

    Why don't you get the timing checked. Saves any guesswork then. If its out then it needs doing. I think the thoughts about the stop/start causing more chain wear argument is false.

    Correct battery for 209 CLK220 CDI

    We alwayw fit genuine batteries. They Last longer, they seem to eliminate some electrical gremlins and they fit well. I replace them often and some have been 10+ years old. On a CL the other day one was 15 years old!!

    2000 CLK 320 does it have a diagnostics port if so where is it located

    You need some different software. The adapters rarely work properly and if they do they dont necessarily pull all the codes. You need a Star or a garage with one to go any further.

    Oil change after 3K miles ???

    Long life servicing is not good in our experience. There is a VAG specilaist near us that sees regular engine failure and serious wear on cams etc and he put it down to th elong service intervals. For the small cost an oil and filter is going to be, i'd just do it.

    If you need parts, your local mb dealer will look them up for you and they will have the latest part number as they do sometimes change.

    WD40

    I use Torsion Spray by Metaflux. Its seriously expensive at £14/can but its very very good. Especially if you have time to let it penetrate. We use WD40 for cleaning, thats all its good for imo.

    If you can see the cord in the cut replace it, if not then its ok. Thats the MOT rules.

    CL63 vibration through footwell

    It needs investigating first I think. Does it change when the ABC up button is pressed?

    Tell me about W213/S213

    So far the 212 has proved a better car than a 213. The late 212's are great. I am not convinced of the build quality of the 213's or 205's just yet.

    Head Gasket repairs Additive!!

    Those sealants are a pain. I'd avoid them as much as you can. The blockages i have seen all over the cooling system on MB's caused by this stuff is shocking. Look at the heater matrix......

    abs parts

    If you replace the wheel speed sensor make sure its a genuine MB part. Aftermarket sensors are usually crap. Have you wheel speed sensor codes?

    C350 exhaust smell with foot down and sunroof open

    It could be from the exhaust housing of the turbo and/or a snapped bolt on the turbo manifold. The snapped bolts are very common.

    Its usually a sales gimmick. Money for old rope pushed by salesman to up the commission.
