    S320CDI Power Loss + Excessive smoking

    Did you actually change the EGR valve? My 320 CDi had the exact same symptoms as your. Cleaned the EGR valve but the problem remained. Swapped it for a new one and problem solved.

    Protruding Circumference of Worn Brake Disc.

    Modern discs are designed to wear more quickly. That's how they get far better braking performance than cars seen many years ago. The materials they are made from combined with the materials of the pads give far better braking performance than you got with harder discs that lasted forever. As a...

    E-Class (W210) SRS and Airbag Light

    I replaced the sensor pad. Part was about £70. MB wanted £250ish labour so I did it myself. 10 minutes to get the seat out, about an hour to work out how to disassemble it, an hour ro remove the leather/take out the old pad/modify the seat foam to stry and stop it happeneing again/fit the new...

    Do cdi injectors need programming?

    2900 psi. Pah, that's nothing. I work with 3500psi of Hydrogen. I don't fancy any leaks in that pipework.

    E-Class (W210) SRS and Airbag Light

    But surely the pressure pad is working OK if the SRS and airbag lights come on/off depending on whether or not somebody is sitting in the passenger seat?

    E-Class (W210) SRS and Airbag Light

    Our E320 CDI (W210) has developed a problem with the safety system. Without a passenger in the passenger seat, the "AIRBAG OFF" light and SRS light are both illuminated. As soon as someone gets into the passenger seat, both lights go out. When the passenger gets out, both lights come back on...

Silver, completely rust free, black leather, 7 seater, parking distance control, and just coming up to 90k. Superb condition !!! Very well maintained (extra services by me). But we...

    320 CDI Engine Changing Fan Belt

    Many thanks for the replies chaps. Just got back from a trip to some Mickey Mouse outfit near Paris so sorry I'm a bit late with my thanks. The car has gone into the bodyshop this morning for the rear quarters to be replaced (only the roof and bonnet to go now and I'll have had every panel...

    2000 E320CDI Starting Problem

    Saw this on a friend's 220 CDi. We traced it to the fuel filter seal. Easy and cheap enough to do as a first attempt.

    320 CDI Engine Changing Fan Belt

    W210 E320 CDi MAF + smoking

    Car drives nicely with no smoke at all. Lovely. At last. The clattery noise is still there :( Can be heard within the cockpit but not really evident from the engine bay (i.e. listening to the engine with the bonnet up). Clattering reduces dramatcially when the steering wheel is turned left or...

    W210 E320 CDi MAF + smoking

    Finally got it back today (I haven't driven it yet - it's still on the drive where they delivered it). The intermittent power loss was being caused by the brand new MAF I'd bought on eBay from "" which wasn't OEM. Beware of that one. The bill was 25 hours at £95 p/h + new...
