    Just wanted to put closure on this. It was the engine mounts.

    Had the tranny mount changed when gearbox serviced, made no difference

    My W221 350cdi started a weird vibration a few weeks ago which is getting worse. From a cold start I back off my drive and all is well, as soon as I put it into D with foot on the brake there is a noticeable vibration felt in the car. When I drive off it feels a bit rough but nothing major...

    S350 CDI starting problem

    Thought it might be EIS but no codes showed up and can you turn the ignition to on when it fails, as it means you can put it into neutral and turn handbrake off, surely security risk. Merc usually pretty hot on these things

    S350 CDI starting problem

    Hope someone has an idea about this problem. Couple of months ago I got in car and turned key and the starter did'nt turn, at first I thought I had'nt turned key properly, so flicked key again and all ok it started as normal. Next day it did it again but started on second key turn. Next day...

    funny noise s500 underbonnet w221

    There used to be a fan that cooled the ecu, think this was on the w220, worth a try. But it does seem a bit noisy for that. Also if I remember rightly when the fan failed it would trip a low coolant warning or some other weird fault not connected with the problem.

    Dpf explained

    Very interesting read and makes me understand whats going on. On mine the stop start is disabled aswell which makes sense, wondered why that happened now I know why. Did check today when a regen was happening and the heated rear screen comes on for no reason, why is that.

    Adblue heater

    Got a CEL, diagnosed as the dreaded heater failure.. Had new adblue pump last year, 1 month after warranty expired, paid 20% as goodwill. Will this fail the mot. Don't want to spend ££££ on something we don't need in uk. Did search but some say it will some say no. It has no effect on emissions.

    W221 s350

    Great car. Don't use premium diesel apart from every 4 fill ups. Keeps egr clean but produces slightly more soot that clogs DPF quicker. Just opened can of worms with that one.

    Pink xenons

    Just noticed one of my xenon headlights has turned pink. No error message on dash. Done a bit of searching and it seems bulb is on way out. Is this a DIY job, just looked under bonnet and not a lot of room, in fact passenger side no room. Its a w221 facelift. Anyone any idea what the dealer is...

    When I saw the cracked turbo vane I was shocked, had many mercs over the years and had many problems, mainly electrical, but never a big mechanical failure like this..
