    W168 steering clicking

    I have a 2004 A170 which has started to click when turning the steering at slow speeds. The noise appears to be coming from around the glove box, but cannot be heard from outside the car or under the bonnet. What is causing this?

    My car needs a new clutch, a garage quoeted £380 for parts(clutch+bearings) and labour. Is this a very reasonable price? The car revs are high in the gears but less power.

    w168 A170cdi - what injection pump?

    I looked in my autodata and it said EDC, eg a VP37/VP44 rotary injection pump, but that can't be right for a CDI? Surely it must be common rail? Also can anyone tell me if it's cambelt or chain driven and any common issues with this engine? Regards, Greg.
