    Had a blow out...

    Bloody typical, buy a new set of MPSS and then get a blow out at work whilst my tyres sit at home 160 miles away! Bent over to the sound of £272.99 for a tyre to get me home - if anyone wants a practically new Bridgestone that's covered less than 200 miles (19/285/19), it's here: Bridgestone...

    Air Never Blow Out From Centre Louvre

    Hi guys, I request your help on my 1994 W202. It has been a while that when I turned on the heat or the a/c, the air never blew out of the centre louvre at the dashboard, but it blew out from the sides and also to the windshiled. Could it be the flap been stuck or the faulty climate control?

    Under-inflation causes blow outs?

    Anyone got any evidence (anecdotal or otherwise) to support the theory I had expounded to me recently that a blow out "is almost certainly due to running the car with under inflated tyres"? How under inflated would it need to be? Thoughts chaps?
