    Time to cut my losses.

    At the end of last year I had welding done at the front end to get the car though it's MOT (front spring seats) and refreshed the front suspension with new arms and shocks. Since then I have had problems with the ECU, documented elsewhere on the forum, which has stopped me putting it through...

    Fly tipping, or not fly tipping?

    Strange incident this afternoon. My daughter came running in saying that two people had parked up in our street and had gone down to the brook and were throwing the contents of two black bin bags into it. I went out to see what was going on to see a couple get back into the car (a brand new 5...

    Oil leak. M642 again.

    Hi, My car is currently in the main dealer for investigation of an oil leak. 2012 ML350 cdi, 56k miles. The car drips oil onto the drive and I have had the under-tray off and it is full of dirty oil. They have rang me to advise that the oil is coming from the seal around the air inlet to the...

    What's this clip

    Does anyone know what the spring steel clip in the attached photos does. It's been knocking around in the garage for years since I did the head gasket on my 104.992 engined W124? (I usually have bits left over when I have done work!!) I think its probably from somewhere under the inlet...

    W124 M104 E320 not starting.

    I am having trouble with my '95 E320, I tried staring it for the first time in a few weeks (Battery was fully charged first) and whilst it turns over fast enough it makes no effort to fire. I have spent many hours trying to get to the bottom of it but have drawn a blank as to the root cause. I...

    Front brake dust shields

    Hi, Does anyone know where I can buy the front dust shields for an E320 (W124) at a reasonable price? Part numbers are A1244202544 and A1244202644. The ones for 4 cylinder cars are dirt cheap but finding the correct parts for my car is proving frustrating and expensive. Cheers, Martyn

    Parking sensor question

    I have just bought a W166 ML and I have found that the rear parking sensors are not working correctly. When you engage reverse gear the four red lights light up and the beeper sounds for about a second. The manual states that this is not a failure of the parking sensors as that is followed by...

    Another "Whats it worth" post.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, by all means move me on if appropriate. It is with a very heavy heart that I have decided to throw in the towel on my 1995 E320. The poor old girl has been sat on the drive for the last twelve moths after it failed its MOT on rusty front spring seats. Over...

    W163 multiple engine mount failures

    Hi, having replaced the offside engine mount about 12k miles ago I am surprised to find that the replacement has now began to show signs of failure in the same way, the rubber is intact but has squashed to such an extent that the metal parts are making contact transmitting vibration. Does...

    Not MB But you guys are the best!!

    Ok, apologies in advance but this is not a Mercedes issue. It's because the Citroen forum is useless that I turn to yo for advice! A couple of years ago I had some (Ultimately unnecessary) work carried out on the gearbox of my citroen Picasso (Clutch, flywheel, actuator pack and drive shaft)...

    Is this repairable?

    I’m just wondering if this bumper is beyond salvaging (I know the wife’s reversing skills are but that’s for another thread). Finding a used W163 bumper with reversing sensor holes is proving tricky so I need to look into all options and if a repair is do-able that may be the way forward. Any...

    OM613 hp pump on OM613 engine?

    hi, Can anyone tell me if the hp fuel pump from a 613 engine would a straight swap onto a 612 engine. They look the same and the rigid hp pipe from pump to fuel rail has the same part number so I’m hopeful. I’m assuming that flow rate may be (20%) higher but otherwise the same part. Any advise...

    W163 H&R lowering springs.

    I have a pair of H&R springs for the rear of a 163 ML. I fitted them about a month ago but the wife prefers the ride as it was so I’ve reverted back to standard springs. They lower the car by approximately 40-50mm and you simply adjust the front torsion bars to suit. I’ll take £70 collected from...

    New appendage.

    Ten minutes ago my daughter pointed out that something was sticking out of the letter box. Upon investigating I was pleasantly greeted one of the best things I have ever witnessed, indeed the girls could not believe that their daddy had got quite so excited about finding a knob sticking through...

    French cheese

    I've just found a lovely Brie at the back of the fridge, unfortunately it claims I should have "used" it by 2nd January (I assume 2017). Question is bin or biscuit? I know the forum is full of wise people who will point me in the right direction and I can soon reverse my initial instinct to...

    W163. To lower or not to lower.

    That's the question really. We have a w163 ml270 which we predominantly use for towing our caravan. Whilst it tows well enough the remove able tow ball is a little too high resulting in the caravan being completely level when towed; best practice for stability is for the front of the caravan...

    MOT Emissions failure

    Hi All, I've just heard back from my wife and the 124 has failed it's MOT on emissions. She has sent me a photo of the results (attached) and it has failed on the lambda reading. My thought is that the O2 sensor has to be the obvious candidate. What do the more technically astute of you think...

    270cdi, new manifold or deflap?

    I've just this minute finished removing the inlet manifold from my ML (Not a great job in this weather!!) and am now considering my next step; should I buy a new inlet manifold and fit that or do I plug the holes in the old one and refit that with the motor working but disconnected? The...

    Operation Stack

    As operation stack is now in place until at least 7 tomorrow evening and we are due to take our caravan to France at 10 tomorrow night has anyone got any advice as to the best way of getting to the tunnel terminal from the M25? The official advice seems to tell you to take the M2 from the M25...

    W163 ml towbar wiring.

    Hi, I need to fit a towbar and wiring to my 2003 ml 270 but having looked up the options for oe wiring I am a little confused. Hopefully somebody on here can help me out. A thread on another forum suggests that the part I need is B66850071 but when I visited my local dealer he said I needed...
