    W124 Multi Function Relay Buzzing/Vibrating

    Yesterday, when driving to work, I noticed that my indicators and horn werent working. I took apart the fusebox lid and had a look at the multi function relay. Everything seemed fine, so I was slightly confused as I had only replaced the multi function relay 3 weeks ago. So this morning I...

    W124 230CE Ticking noise from top of engine

    I also should have mentioned that it does this when the engine is cold and hot, and not only when started up. Oil seems fine, and hydraulic lifter cleaner has been ran through it already. Thanks.

    W124 230CE Ticking noise from top of engine

    Hi, my 230CE has developed a ticking problem coming from the top of the engine. Could it be a hydraulic lifter? It seems to get gradually louder then stops suddenly, and get gradually louder again, then stops, and keeps doing this. It seems worse when idling and upto 1800rpm. Any ideas? Thanks...

    W124 anti roll bar bracket keeps snapping in half?

    Thank you for the help guys, it turns out, its believed to have been an original bracket so probably snapped due to age. Also, I should have been more clear. After the bracket snapped I took it to my local garage where the mechanic welded it together for me, it then snapped, again, after 5 days...

    W124 anti roll bar bracket keeps snapping in half?

    balge - Your photo is spot on, exactly the same as mines. It seems to me like these brackets are far too weak to withhold the strain of the cars body roll. I'm going to have a look at it tommorow, see if I can maybe weld the new bracket for extra strength.

    W124 anti roll bar bracket keeps snapping in half?

    W124 230CE, last week the front anti roll bar bracket on the drivers side snapped clean in the middle. Any idea as to why this happened? As its abit of a mystery to me. Could it be that the tracking is off and the wheels are toed out?

    230ce with a dissapointing overall check

    Apparently it passed first time and thier were no advisories at all on the mot pass sheet, which sounds very suspicious to me. However, I've booked it in at my local garage next week to get the manifold gasket and cam chain done, so hopefully that should keep the rattling and noise at bay. 4-8 I...

    230ce with a dissapointing overall check

    Ok, after being fed up getting deafened by the engine noise I decided I'd put it in my local garage to give it a check over. This is the outcome. 1. General check - engine noise 2. The camchain is noisy 3. The exhaust noise is from number 4 cylinder on the exhaust manifold 4. Slight play in...

    My new daily C124

    trapperjohns right, both are bad for the rear screens, but only the sec is bad for the parcel shelf rusting. From what I've gathered its rusty arches that are the main culprit for these cars, thats why I was glad to see that the guy I bought this one from hadn't stuck those silly chrome arch...

    My new daily C124

    Hi all, This is my first daily Mercedes I've owned. I had a 420 SEC last year but only had it to restore and then sold it on. I picked this up 3 weeks ago, for £650. It seems to be a good enough car so far, with a good history, years mot and 6 months tax. The bodyworks clean, not really got any...

    230ce clunking from top end?

    Just today I went out in the car and the engine was clunking quite loud, loud enough to hear it clearly in the cabin. It sounds like the topend. I had a look earlier and the 1st cylinder ht lead was loose on the spark plug, so I took it out checked it wasn't broken or anything, checked the rest...
