I have just picked up a mint condition 2006 C180, 96k, FSH, Silver+leather, £1500 which I thought was a good price. It's going to be a present for my wife who has an old Volvo V70 at the moment.
Are there any things I need to be aware of with this car to keep an eye on or check...
I have a knocking noise that I only notice when moving off from stationery, either forward or reverse, most pronounced when on an incline.
The car is a manual. Done about 65k, full MB history.
Any thoughts from anyone? I am not mechanically minded, but I was wondering about engine mounts...
The car is pulling to the left quite noticeably. A few months back the original alloys were swapped for genuine 18" ones with branded tyres. I can't remember if the car pulled left on the original alloys as they were swapped out soon after we bought it.

My C180 2003 has started to make a chirping noise when under moderate to hard acceleration. I read somewhere this could be the Belt Tensioner has anyone else had this and if so how expensive is it to fix or diagnose yourself which part is at fault ?

The parking brake cable on my superb Mercedes C180 1996 failed.
My dealer tells me the cable comes in three parts
Right - Left and Centre
He can get the Right and Centre cables from Mercedes in Germany.
