    Spring compressor in Newport/Cardiff/Bristol area

    Thank you for the suggestion. I prefer to do my own work, if I am unable to find someone with the appropriate equipment I will likely buy my own, as a floor standing hydraulic press can be had for £80.

    Strange ARB issue (W209 CLK500)

    Interesting points and a reminder that I should not presume that because it *sounds* as though it's from the front, that it actually is. I will check the rear of the car as I have not looked there at all yet. I did find my front wheel bearings to be too loose, front discs heavily glazed with...

    Macpherson not double wishbone. Will take a look at mountings and bearings when changing damper (already have new front dampers so may as well put them in).

    Strange ARB issue (W209 CLK500)

    Thank you for that input, I will test the tape method. Front ARB attaches at the midpoint of the shock absorber casing using a metal tab. Could well be rattling the old tired shock around and causing the noise?

    Front ARB, noted that when replacing the bushes, the bar was corroded, cleaned up with 80 grit emery cloth. Is it possible for the roll bar itself to be worn? Have been jiggling and levering most arms, seem fine. Don't see how the engine mounts would be effected by the anti roll bar, but...

    Hello MBclub, Looking for some input; I recently purchased a 2002 CLK500 with 150k on the clock. I have been working my way through the maintenance tasks usually neglected on such cars and have hit a bump in the road. I get a fairly heavy knocking noise when travelling on road undulations or...
