Wanted to check air pressure in tyres, dust caps will not budge, tried pliers and still no luck..
As im using the pliers, the actual rubber valve was twisting as well, so had to stop that as I dont want to damage them..
Any ideas? i dont want to fork out for a set of new tyres...
I bought few months ago a W203. This week I decided fix a noise in the rear wheel. What was my surprise when I saw the rear Axle and Rear Brake Dust Shield. They are full of rust:crazy:. So I'll need some help:
1- I was thinking in change all Axle (+- £ 150 on ebay). Anyone...
I was saddened to see last week that another piece of London's motoring heritage had disappeared. The elegant, neo-Georgian building (above) that used to house Standard-Triumph's flagship showroom at its north end, has been razed to the ground, to be replaced by a new office/retail block.
Now that this is an MOT item since the beginning of the year, my 1983 230E has failed only on the covers being damaged ..DOH! Fair enough, but, although Mercedes do a repair kit, I can't find one in the UK. I could buy the ball joints and swop rubbers but that seems an expensive option. I see...
I want to do a trial with these pads but I don't currently have a car that I can use a set on.
Is there any forum member that would like a FREE st of these E pads to try? I would like to fit them too to check the fitment quality.
The advantages of epad:
We have just taken delivery of the full range (don't get too excited its only about 30 different pads at the moment) of the new Textar E-PAD
Designed by TMD Friction (one of the worlds leading original brake suppliers) the E-PAD is a new friction material, which will hopefully...
The new 190E has original MB 8-hole alloys. I suspect they've never been refurbed before (18 years old) and have a lot of brake dust build up in the holes.
I gave them a quick wash down, then used a little TFR that I had hanging about, pressure washer etc. Doesn't seem to have budged it...
Read many internet posts on the best way to remove baked on brake dust from alloy wheels.
I have some 15 holes that have black baked on brake dust between the spokes - anyone managed to clean this off without damaging the wheel finish?
Does anybody have the an old W203 N/S mirror. The inner dust cover is missing on my car allowing it to fill up with crud.
So if you have a busted mirror that has the inner black plastic cover I would happily relieve you of it. It's the cover that sits inside the mirror housing not on the...
After getting my car back from the body shop today to fix some minor cosmetic issues (like it when I bought it) I stood and looked at it on the drive.
The paint finish is superb but..... after it had a good polish the dust just seemed to get sucked onto the car.
Does anyone if...
my ARB link has broken on the rear of my 1985 SL. Unfortunatly the bolts are too rusted to be able to remove in situ, so i need to angle-grind them off.
To gain access i need to remove the dust shield. i've removed the caliper and disc but cant see how the sheild is removed.... do i...
so i've cleaned the car (pics later) but the wheels were heavily caked with brake dust.
i tried turtle wax tyre cleaner, and Mr Muscle Oven Cleaner. Both shifted some dirt but required A LOT of scrubbing.
I've heard Wonder Wheels is good for this sort of stuff. But is it something i can...
Brake dust has kinda baked onto the rims and hardened with the icey weather we've had of late.
Whats the best stuff to get it off with and polish the rim with?
I use autosol and that normally gets the stuff off but i need something stronger this time!
Is there a way to buy the ribbed dust cover without buying the whole trip surround? Mine started cracking and when I tried to take it out to superglue it back together, the whole lot fell apart.
I have attached a photo of it.
If you cannot buy the ribbed dust cover...
