i have a 2006 ML270 which has just failed the MOT - "Parking brake efficiency below requirements"
the MOT place have said it will probably need both rear disks pads and brake shoes replacing, at a cost of over £500. Surely if the whole lot needs replacing then it would have failed on...
I`m moving soon which will mean a drive to the station in the mornings for my wife and to drop kids off etc so she mentioned getting a cheap run about as back up to the ML for emergency's and the odd occasion when a second car will come in useful. Here`s the criteria;
1) no more than about...
I have a couple of chips in the lacquer on my ML, about the size of a coin i thought i might have a go at at least improving with some lacquer i have. Anyone had a go at this sort of thing? i`m not expecting miracles but it would be nice to improve the appearance a bit
I don`t know if this has already been posted before or will be useful to anyone but though i would post.
I wanted to find my VIN without having to wait until i got home to dig out my details so this is what i did:
i went to this site, i`m sure others will work as well

the three pointed star emblem on one of my ML`s wheel centers has come off so i`m trying to get it off without damaging it or the wheel to find a part number so i can replace it - is there a trick to this or do they just leaver out? it feels like something will get broken if i do
thanks in advance
i`m currently running 235x17x65 Continentals on my ML270 which i bought part worn to tide me over for a few months. I`m going to be replacing them at some point this year so can anyone recommend a good budget tire in the same size?
Last year i purchased a Karcher jet washer and power lance to do my patio and it also came with the standard lance which i`m assuming will be fine to use on the car, should i and are there any tips on use i should be aware of?
I know this probably does n`t qualify as detailing but small...
I had new rear discs and pads fitted a couple of weeks ago and i`ve just noticed a squeaking coming from the rear under braking as i come to a stand still. I`m not sure if it`s been there since they were changed as the only reason i noticed it last night is because i had the window down - are...
as per the title - Classic Mercedes magazine looks interesting this month, features on various coupes including the SEC and a buyers guide on the W124 estate among other things. Thought i would mention it for those interested in such things :thumb:
Normally I would just use regular diesel but because I want to keep my ML270 for a while and do a few very short journeys during the week I want to make more of an effort to keep the engine as clean as possible. Any recommendations regarding premium diesels or additives etc?
Booked my ML in to investigate a power loss issue on Monday, dropped it off this morning within two hours the issue had been diagnosed I had been called parts ordered and I picked it up, fixed this evening. Impressed.
probably in an attempt to shut me up going on about old cars my lovely wife has suggested buying me a classic for my 50th in a few years (ok, 3 and a half . . .)
here`s the criteria, all opinions welcome
1) budget around 5k
2) must be family friendly - if i`m going to use it for...
First of all apologies if this post is in the wrong place, I have another thread open for power loss under engine
