    How easy to replace a front camber arm ball joint in C180 estate

    Easy peasey. Remove centre undertray, remove inner bolt to the subframe usually 2 21mm spanners required but sometimes a torx is used which is e20. The 21 mm nut on outside. Sharp hammer hit to brake the tapper then refit. 30 mins most. 10 minuites on a ramp at work. Don't even remove the wheel

    Loosing Speed

    Mb tech here. If the top cat had gone it will of probably blocked the lower cat so my advise to prove this is to remove the clamp between the two and road test it as this will allow the gases to escape ok. It will be a little loud but will prove if you have power back or not. Top cap failing...

    Auto dipstick!

    The measure meant lengths to the end don't help guys as it does not push all the way in to the handle like an engine dipstick. If you do an oil and filter on you box run it drain it change filter clean magnets and rebuild. Add 3.7 Ltrs of oil and that will be spot on trust me.

    Heater drain hoses w211 eclass.

    The 211 has drains in the back of both front wheel arches that blocked up. Pull the rear of the arch liner forward and there maybe a black plastic funnel visible held in by 2 10mm black nuts. Just remove it. Lots were removed in the early days of the models life but yours may still be there...

    S320 CDI W221 Oil leak 2008

    No the small orange seal is ok just wipe it over and push it in firmly. It does take a while to get rid of the oil as it lies in the v and only runs down in motion and when hot and thin hence why u don't get in when not been used. Most dealers keep the parts in stock. Make sure the o ring is...
