    W208 Front wing

    No, nothing on this forum, I checked some motor factors and they were about £300 each, so I did nothing.

    CLK55 Head

    I haven't checked the price of a new head yet, as it will probably scare me. I have 170k miles on the car. I was driving along when I noticed the temp go up past 80 and then it started to go higher so i pulled over and stopped.

    CLK55 Head

    there was no obvious symptoms, until the car overheated, whereupon I immediately switched the car off and had it collected and delivered to a garage friend. He found a trace of oil in the water and so removed the heads to find that the gasket had leaked and the oil had mixed. He sent the 2 heads...

    CLK55 Head

    I have no idea how the crack happened, and it does leak a little oil. I didn't know you can repair a head.

    Guys, Please advise on the potential value of a w208 clk55 with 177k miles. I love the car, but maybe it is time to change

    W208 new wings

    My CLK55 has a little surface rust on the front wings. With the price of the wings I dont know if it is worth fixing. My 55 has 177k miles on the clock, but I still love having fun with the tail out

    Exhaust ratle

    Local Tyre garage suggested blowing out the broken pieces, so I decided to give the car a good old charge and it seems to have blown the rattle away quite literally.

    R129 Rattling on tickover when in gear?

    I have the same thing with my 2001 CLK55, and my local tyre garage advised it is the cat converter breaking down. I just gave the car a blast over the past few days and it seems to have blown the loose stuff out the back. Problem is I now need back tyres......

    Exhaust ratle

    Many thanks guys, I appreciate your feedback. I will get them removed and let you know how it goes. They hope to open the pipe and take the bits out without having to cut open the box and then weld shut again, which could draw the attention of a pedantic tester. Will it make the exhaust louder...

    Exhaust ratle

    My CLK 55 has a rattle under the passenger side front seat or there abouts. I am told it is a cat converter that can be removed and left out. I initially thought it was a heat shield, but when you tap the mid box you hear the rattle. The CLK exhaust system splits at this point under the car and...
