    timing chain stretch check 240d

    Apologies if this has been asked a million times but how do you check the timing chain stretch on this engine? If it needs changing, is it relatively easy to do using a chain and a split link? thanks

    C180 timing chain failure?

    Hi, First I have to say this is my first ever Mercedes and I'm rubbish with cars at all Recently this C180 Sport came to an abrupt stop and didn't start since. All the signs point to timing chain failure apparently (camshaft not moving, light sound when cranking). But I still won't believe...

    My timing chain snapped. I hear this shouldnt happen? What is the damage likely to be? Is it worth investigating or should I just replace the engine? Would appreciate any advice on this one please..?

    Hi all - i really need some help making this decision - i've only had my lovely a class since september and it basically died the other day after a few days of dodgy starting. The mechanic says the timing chain has broken and this has in turn broken some valves. He says that it needs a new...

    Cam chain still for life?

    Does anyone know if the cam chain on the W211 E55 is for life? I had a W124 500E before and was told that that was for life. I'm sure it has not changed but thought I would ask.
