    W210 e300 td power boost

    If you want "real" power you should consider a modified diesel pump. Is your engine code OM606 ? If it is, then you can get big power for not a lot of monies. Speak to Diesel Pump UK. They build some superdiesel Mercs with insane power. HTH https://www.dieselpumpuk.com

    Redex - Experience of its use on older cars

    I used redex and noticed that the exhaust pops and bangs alot more on overrun. No change in fuel economy. However the engine "felt" different (better), whether its placebo or otherwise I have no idea.

    This is the insides of that junction box. It appears to have a different fuse setup. Hope it's of some help.

    w209 clk 500 not starting

    Quickest way to check is press brake pedal and see if brake lights work. If the lights don't work then yes this could be your problem. HTH.

    w209 clk 500 not starting

    I would think a multimeter should show if its blown or not.

    w209 clk 500 not starting

    I'm sure your car should have it. It's a 150 amp fuse. Not a blade fuse. Look at the first picture and you will see a silver cylinder type fuse. All electrics will work except starter if this is blown.

    w209 clk 500 not starting

    It's known as a Junction Box. The pic above is from a w220/215. It should look like this on a 209. Usually a 150 amp fuse inside.

    w209 clk 500 not starting

    Have you checked the "main" fuse between the battery and starter motor ? It's normally located in drivers footwell. Check pic. HTH.

    E55 2003 AMG parts

    I could not get rid of the squealing until I replaced all 8 pads with MB pads. I tried everything but ultimately had to change pads to genuine MB pads to resolve this issue. It was driving me insane. HTH. No idea what the difference is in materials.

    abc pump

    Send "m2278" (mb club member) a PM. He has rebuilt lots of these pumps and would be a great starting point if you want to rebuild your existing pump. HTH.

    w208 clk brakes upgrade

    You need to firstly check the bolt size of the calipers. I think the w208 uses m12 anchor bolts. 8 piston calipers (mercedes/amg/brembo) use m14 anchor bolts to hold the calipers on the spindles. I did the 8 piston caliper upgrade on my CL (some pics in profile) and had to use CL600 bi turbo...

    CLK63 brake upgrade on C55, clearance issue Help please

    Get some "engineering blue" dye and coat the inside of each front wheel. Then rotate the wheel (obviously whilst bolted back on to the hub). The rubbing should be consistent all the way around the inside rim. This rubbing will leave "engineering blue" dye on the caliper to indicate exactly where...

    CLK63 brake upgrade on C55, clearance issue Help please

    This ^^. If no problem then your wheel is slightly bent. Remedy by either having buckle taken out or grind the AMG logo down 1-2mm. I did a big brake conversion on my car a couple of years back. 8 piston jobby. There's always some niggly problem that'll drive you insane. Don't give up.

    CLK63 brake upgrade on C55, clearance issue Help please

    Just thinking outside the box here but did you thoroughly clean the hub before mating the disc to it ? Maybe you have a small patch of corrosion on the hub. HTH
