The ball joint is worn so needs replaced. Anyone done this and used original or aftermarket part? Best to replace both sides. I see that if you mark the washer positions it will be ok until you have an alignment check.
2010 E500 CAB The drivers seat has stopped moving forward when the seat back is moved to access the rear seats. The seat memory is ok and the passenger seat is working ok. Will this fault show up on ICarsoft. It could be a micro switch on the seat back. Any idea where it is located?
This is for information and may assist with a similar problem and give hope...patience is the key.
