    Hi, my w202 v6 has an oil leak which appears to be getting worse. it looks to be coming from just under the oil cooler at the front of the engine. a little plate held in place by 2 bolts. is this a common area to leak and is there a gasket or o ring ? thanks, matthew

    Hi, so i recently bought a 98 c280 with little history, i gather the crank pulley has a rubber component. when this starts to go does the engine feel a little rough when reving? and is the crank pulley a dealer only part , cant find one on eurocarparts website.
