I have just had the front end knock on my late 2006 (facelift) Sprinter 311CDI
looked at and have been told need to replace both lower ball joints. The garage said it was easier to replace both control arms rather than trying to get the ball joints out. They quoted £800 inc parts...
Had the car for a little over a week and 800 miles now and I've pinned the clonking at the front to a lower ball joint, the front one of the 2, on the end of an alloy arm. This one. Can someone tell me what this is called so I can order one, and is it a DIY job? Thank you in advance.
Just bought a 1050kg caravan and so need to fit a tow ball to my ML. Some videos just put a tow ball on but this one https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gUtq8gvv8jU puts on extra supports.
Whats the official guidance
Also how much does a 270ML weight?
Just bought a touring caravan. Some videos on the internet just bolt on a tow hitch behind the bumper in the predrilled holes, but also Ive seen other tutorials fitting 2 extra supports behind?
Whats the official guidelines?
I am contemplating changing the ball joints myself, quite handy with a spanner and fancy a go.
Firstly, I need a spring compressor. Clearly there is the Klann tool at one end of the price spectrum at the other there are the kits such as the ones on ebay and amazon about £60-£70.00...
Ordered a set of brake pad pins from the local dealer, and picked them up this morning. Paperwork and payment settled, the parts chap hands me a bag of parts, it looks vaguely right so I think no more of it and put it in the boot.
Get a phone call a few minutes ago from the dealer, apparently...
Well been having a pre Mot poke around and discovered play in o/s/f wheel bearing so nipped that up.
Also found same on n/s/f so did that.
Ever since jacking the nearside front up, strange feeling off play in steering wheel and a vibration right through drivers seat at 40mph.
Well I looked at...
What warranty usually comes with genuine parts, I replaced the 2 lower ball joints last year for the mot and one was picked up this year in October I checked it at the weekend and it is way worse and there is slight play in the other side now.
They have been fitted around 14months the rubber...

I need to get the ball back in its socket but after an hour of faffing and puffing it has defeated me.
Either I am too wimpy or there is a Teutonic knack...
Hey guys, a very quick one,

Just wanted to find out what tools (by brand/location) you guys recommend when it comes to ball splitting and removal/install . Is the stuff on ebay ok or is it just badly made putty? anything to go for or avoid?
I've gleaned a good idea on how to go about the job from searches on...
My car is a 1994 R129 SL500
A recent MOT threw up OSF ball joint play. My Indie quoted to replace - roughly £35 for the ball joint plus fitting.
He then called back to say that the ball joint was actually cast into the lower control arm and that the whole arm would need replacing...
I've noticed hardly no or very little conversation on this MB club forum about this, whereas on other similar sites it has been comprehensively covered - don't know why that should be - especially since it is an absolute essential to be aware of as this repair will save thousands of pounds...
