    Help!! Don't know where coolant is leaking from!

    Thanks, t4hir. Is there a possibility to replace just that part instead of the whole radiator? It's kinda expensive here. If not, sorry for the dumb question, but does m-seal do any good on the cracks? Since the leak seemed to be reduced, how safe is it to take it for a long test drive? I'm not...

    Help!! Don't know where coolant is leaking from!

    Suspicion confirmed. It's coming from the radiator(New photo by Viswanath Aditham, New photo by Viswanath Aditham) I also tried to feel around for a leak at the radiator end of that pipe... And i found it. I loosened that hose clamp, pushed the hose in and tightened the screw of the hose clamp...

    Help!! Don't know where coolant is leaking from!

    Oh no, I wasn't insisting on taking the thing out. Since the leak seems to be nowhere near the water pump pulley and was closer to the radiator's drain nozzle, I just thought it'd be worth clarifying. Thanks

    Help!! Don't know where coolant is leaking from!

    Got it. Also, the leak seemed to be coming from the radiator to my untrained eye based on where it pooled up.

    Help!! Don't know where coolant is leaking from!

    Hi, I hope everyone's safe at home. About 3 days ago, the engine coolant warning came on, and after putting about a liter of coolant in it and getting it home, I got the same warning yesterday. Upon further inspection after checking the engine oil cap and washer fluid tank and finding nothing...

    Good idea or bad idea- DIY jumper cables for a Mercedes

    Thanks for all the help on this, guys. All it needed was a jumpstart. And that current drain Shadychris has mentioned maybe is accompanied by a coolant leak. But that's gonna be another post.

    Good idea or bad idea- DIY jumper cables for a Mercedes

    The battery is not even a year old, so that should rule that out. But the battery did go dead, though🤔 I know that it hadn't been started for a few weeks, but I couldn't even get the doors to unlock through the key fob. And the key fob batteries were fine.

    Good idea or bad idea- DIY jumper cables for a Mercedes

    Thanks for the info, Shadychris and MarkJay. We got the whole thing done in about 25 quid, if not a little less. It's a 35mm² copper wire and about 10 feet in length, so that should suffice, hopefully.

    Good idea or bad idea- DIY jumper cables for a Mercedes

    Really appreciate the speedy reply, bob6600. No, I don't want to do this just to crank longer. I just observed that, and thought that it might be useful information; nothing more. It's the 2.2 liter cdi version(143hp). The thing hadn't been started for at least two weeks, so we thought that...

    Good idea or bad idea- DIY jumper cables for a Mercedes

    Hey, everyone. I hope everybody is safe during these tough times. My dad's w210 cranks, but won't start. It started to crank a little more everytime we'd give it time and turn the key, but we were scared of breaking something so we stopped and decided to go out and buy jumper cables. But we...

    Need to replace the compressor

    Hey, guys. So the AC guy says the compressor In my dad's w210 needs replacement. It hasn't been cooling that well since a month for the short time we use it, and about a week ago, it was almost completely gone. I don't exactly know where and what to buy in the u.k, since we live in India. I was...

    W210 E 220 CDI air intake torque nut specs, pleaseeee!

    One of the intake manifold nuts is missing(picture attached below to show which bolt it belongs to), which means the bolt spins when the engine's on and it's causing a lot of rattling. So bad that the engine noise leaks into the cabin, along with the road noise that those terrible Michelin...

    Whyyy do they do this? Possible rip off?

    There's a seller named "bestpartsforu2", who has replied that it doesn't need programming. Don't know which one to believe. This one costs 10 quid and the breaker's costs 27, just putting it out there.

    Whyyy do they do this? Possible rip off?

    Thank you for all your replies. I've stumbled across a car breaker store on ebay named apexcarbreakers, and matched the part numbers. When asked about whether I need to reprogram the module, they've said that I do need to reprogram the module. Unfortunately, my quest for an answer on google has...

    Whyyy do they do this? Possible rip off?

    Thanks a lot, E55BOF. I didn't know that new W210 ESP modules were officially available at Mercedes. Not that I'm gonna buy one brand new, but it's good to know. With my luck, I might actually need two modules. Wouldn't it be easier if he just brought it to India in his cabin bag/ check in...

    Whyyy do they do this? Possible rip off?

    Follow-up question: On the second half right hand side, there's numbers that read 01-04-24. What does that mean? Something similar to an expiry date?

    Whyyy do they do this? Possible rip off?

    Does mercedes Mercedes Benz(or bosch, rather) still sell these modules brand new? And about the ones on ebay, I'm aware that they usually come from cars that are not running, thank you. How is the quality of these products, usually? Anybody who had obtained this module for their car, please...

    Whyyy do they do this? Possible rip off?

    I really hope I'm not beating a dead horse with this, but the people at the garage said that the ABS BAS ESP control unit(that hard drive looking thing that controls the three functions, as I understand) costs about 1100 Pounds in INR at least. But when I go online and search for units, I find...

    Whyyy do they do this? Possible rip off?

    UPDATE: The guy who supervises for this mechanic called yesterday and said that he should be done with all the repairs by the evening(problem mentioned in the post excluded) and take it for a test drive, and that we could take the car and use it until he gets the ECU for the above...
