Have had my w163 320cdi serviced and now has a ticking sound coming from engine. MB has confirmed issue.
Anyone here replaced the bearing and can it be done with engine still in place?
Also has anyone had to pay to have this done and how much would it be?
Can anyone advise what direction the fat and thin 'nubs' on the strut mount should be?
I recently changed both front shocks and fitted the strut bearings back as was.
Currently trying to track down why the front driver side wheel has a clunk and feels like it its bobbing up and...
Someone told me that replacing the front drive shaft bearing (A1129800115) on 4MATIC cars is good preventive maintenance especially on high mileage cars. Has anyone done this on his own? The part is pretty cheap but I'm not sure if it's easily DIY-able.
Upon inspecting my recent abs sensor problem I noticed that the reading kept falling to 2km/h every few seconds and setting the abs esp defective codes. Code was front right speed sensor visually inspect component.
Pulled the hub and noticed the rear seal is missing rubber. Is...

Hi All, we have recently bought a W203 55 plate 2.1 C200Sport .. last week the front lower arms had to be replaced and now we are being told ball joints need fixing as there is some movement... how much is this going to cost? The arms cost £186
Many thanks in advance
Excuse my ignorance but when the engine is cold, very cold and I flash it up, there is a loud clicking / metallic 'catching' sound coming from the vicinity of the supercharger pulley / tensioner area. After the engine gets hot (not warm) the sound goes. Tensioner or supercharger bearing?
I'm considering replacing the big end and main bearings on my SLK320. I'm well aware that it would be better to do a full engine out bottom end rebuild with reground crank, new oil pump etc but I'm on a budget and the rest of the car isn't that special to warrant the cost, it also has 135k...
I think I have had enough of Mercedes cars.
2008 Mercedes E280.
Headed off for our annual camping vacation to the South of France on Friday.
Caught the Dover to Calais ferry and headed off down the autoroute at 80MPH / 130KPH reached Reims 2.5 hours in. The car felt great.

Hi guys - grateful for views - I have a noise coming from the wheel(s) in my 1995 W202 C180 - which sounds like this:
Only really prevalent at slow speeds. Do I need a replacement wheel bearing or does it sound like something else?
Just ordered one for my W211 as the bearing was beginning to make quite a loud noise at speed over 30mph though when car jacked there is no noticeable movement of the tyre when shaken at with hands on 12/6 o'clock position. I did repack them about 3yrs ago so I'm guessing they have run of...
Hi, I own a W204 2007 C220 Sport. The left hand rear wheel bearing is worn causing a loud rumble at speeds above 25mph. I noticed you can get a bearing kit for these with 4 bolts that bolt the bearing to the hub.
Are these easy to do. Can you do it without removing the drive shaft.
At long last managed to get all 4 injectors out using the screw-in puller, which entailed dismantling the injector tops before removing. I think the rocker cover's OK, but the problem I've got is that I have lost two of the tiny steel balls from inside the injectors.
I'm going to need to get...
