    Knock Sensor needs replacing exhaust - quoted £1200!!!! :(

    Thank you guys for all your posts. I’m gonna use all the info I’ve gathered from this forum and others then contact Mercedes HQ. I will explain the Nox sensors are poor quality and are a common problem and it’s not right that I should be forking out £1200. Others have had it done as a good Will...

    Knock Sensor needs replacing exhaust - quoted £1200!!!! :(

    Your totally right it’s the NOX sensors. I missed heard on the phone I do apologise. Merc had no attempt to repair the issue. I was told that the error said replace both Nox sensor. Which I don’t believe so I demanded the error code and was told they don’t have it. Said I won’t leave until I...

    Knock Sensor needs replacing exhaust - quoted £1200!!!! :(

    I’ve called around and a garage has quoted me £433 this includes VAT. For a knock sensor replacement. Garage claims there is only the one sensor. Mercedes quoted me £1200. This is two knock sensors. I’m really confused on the prices difference. I’m also waiting to hear back from Halfords...

    Knock Sensor needs replacing exhaust - quoted £1200!!!! :(

    Not sure how to remove the SOLVED bit of the post sorry. Genuine Mercedes , I’m upset that this has an issue. Mercedes said £400 each knock sensor and labour on top. Did call another specialist and they quoted £350 each sensor and then labour on top which was around £900. Which is £300...

    Knock Sensor needs replacing exhaust - quoted £1200!!!! :(

    My E350 coupe 2013/2014 engine light came on recently and Mercedes said it needs the knock sensor x 2 replacing. Quoted £1200!!!! I googled the part and it comes up really cheap so not sure why they charging me this. Anyone else had any issues with a knock sensor. My mileage is 65,000...

    I’ve just got myself a can of this silicone spray. Please can someone tell exactly where to apply this. Thanks. Do I just apply the silicone spray alone the edge of this glass panel ? (Arrow on image) I did try this and didn’t seem to get better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hit a huge pot hole...

    Just an updated for searches: (mainly for people who come across a similar problem) Buckled Alloy Wheel Buckled my 19” alloy on a pot hole. I knew i damaged the alloy as it instantly had a vibration feeling through the steering wheel. I got my wheels checked out at my local tyre garage...

    Hit a huge pot hole...

    £200 to £300. I said why is it so much they said it’s just labour. I said that would only cost £10 from my local tyre garage. He said they are many factors that go into it. Remove tyre , sort out pressure sensor, value, install new tyre , rebalance , and fit. Madness! Sent from my iPhone...

    Hit a huge pot hole...

    Update: So after thinking the repair wasn’t great, I thought get all the wheels rebalanced and checked just in case. This way I can check if the repair job was good or if any of my other wheels were causing me problems. Repaired buckled wheel was perfect, I can’t believe how much of a good job...

    Hit a huge pot hole...

    These looks much better. Did you sell your old set ? I’ll try to get mine perfect and vibration free if that isn’t successful then individual replacements. But if I need to replace more than one then it has to be a new set and sell my current ones of for pennies :( Sent from my iPhone...

    Hit a huge pot hole...

    Some part of me is saying just get new alloys all round, maybe try something new. What are people’s opinion for a nice set of alloys 19” on an e Coupé black ? Cost of alloy refurb (diamond cut would cost loads) and getting the alloys perfectly straight will cos me a loads that I might as well...

    Hit a huge pot hole...

    I’ll get all 4 wheels checked and put on the balancing machine. Fingers crossed this will sort it. If that doesn’t work I would be happy buying a replacement alloy from eBay , ones that haven’t be welded or buckled that I’ve seen. £320- £350 each. Hopefully I would only need the one alloy...

    Hit a huge pot hole...

    So I got the buckle fixed. It cost me £70. Got the car back and it has been fixed but only 96% the other 4% I notice a tiny bit of vibration only around the 60mph mark. Like no other person would notice but I’ve done 50k plus miles now with the car and I can tell. Maybe it’s due to the tyre as I...

    Hit a huge pot hole...

    So I got it checked out today and it’s a small buckle inner rim. Like a few of you have said the inner rim is weaker. I have to drive it 250 miles for work [emoji20] hope it doesn’t cause any damage to the tyre will get it fixed soon as I get back. Just hope it’s just the alloy that’s...

    Hit a huge pot hole...

    Thanks for the replies guys. I’ll start by taking it to my local tyre place and get it balanced/checked out. Will get it sorted ASAP as I’m often doing long journey. I’m hoping it is just a weight that has come off the alloy and not buckled. I’ll have a check and keep you guys updated thanks...

    Hit a huge pot hole...

    Hit a huge pot hole. No sign of damage to the tyres or the 19” alloys but I am getting a vibration sensation (Feel it at higher speeds, fades when I go slower). Like the wheels are out of balance. Is this something is should worry about or is it just a case of tyre balancing my wheels again...
