    Hi, Had a look underneath my 2006 ML and was surprised to see significant corrosion on the rear sub-frame and on the floor around the sub-frame mounting points. Neither area is in a position that gets a lot of spray so I was a little surprised. If left untreated I think this would cause...

    Minor bumper repair- paint/corrosion warranty

    There are as few minor marks on the rear bumper I'd like to have corrected on my car. It's under warranty for another 2 years (paint/corrosion warranty might be a separate one?) so if I want these marks fixed does it need to go to a MB approved workshop so the warranty isn't void?

    C207 - owners - A little corrosion check...

    If you own a C207, it could be worth mentioning that the two plastic covers on each side of the boot lid may hide some not-so-nice-things. Open the Boot lid, the using a side cutter GENTLY pull out the four plastic rivets. Then using your fingers, gently pull out the remaining rubber rivets...

    What kind of chemistry is used for corrosion protection?

    As far as I know, there are two kinds of corrosion protection out there: Bitumen based and Wax based. And mixing them is a big NO. But what kind does Mercedes use in vehicles today? On cars sold in some countries, there is some extra protection. Code is "1U4 Vehicle waxing with additional...

    2011 E350 CDI Estate - corrosion!

    I've recently noticed some bodywork corrosion on my 2011 E Class Estate. A bit of a funny area to get corrosion, I think... Rear wheel arches on the inside of the door jams down by where the 'plastic' sill covers meet the rear quarter at the back. Not an area where the body work would get much...

    My '03 E320 has corrosion around the wheel studs on all 4 wheels. No curbing on the wheels, so could this be a diy job & if so, how do I go about it re rubbing down & painting?

    Hi all, Trying to work out if it's worth approaching a dealer or MB direct with this as the car is in its 7th year. Service history is a mix of MB and indi. Not sure if this is stonechip damage (ie a get out of jail card for MB) on the wheel arch or something else, ie a poorly galvanised...
