I have just had the front end knock on my late 2006 (facelift) Sprinter 311CDI
looked at and have been told need to replace both lower ball joints. The garage said it was easier to replace both control arms rather than trying to get the ball joints out. They quoted £800 inc parts...
Well been having a pre Mot poke around and discovered play in o/s/f wheel bearing so nipped that up.
Also found same on n/s/f so did that.
Ever since jacking the nearside front up, strange feeling off play in steering wheel and a vibration right through drivers seat at 40mph.

I recently had a new rear SAM unit fitted due to water getting onto it.
Eventually found it was from joins as shown in pics.
The question is does anyone know how to stop these from the source? If I just seal these points inside then somewhere, perhaps a box section? could always be full of...
I have had my CLS 500 almost 2 years now and it is a joy to drive and hands down the best car I have owned. So I thought I would start a member’s thread.
Soon after purchasing the car I had a major service and thorough inspection carried out by a local specialist, he gave the car a...
I currently own a C270 and just the other day my front strut blew out and leaked oil all over my garage floor. I knew I was in need of new components a few months back, but I figured it may last until summer.
My question is whether or not my C270 has different struts and shocks...
Hi,as per title can anyone tell me if the smaller suspension parts like the ball joints,tie rods,wishbones are the same for a c43 amg as say other w202,s like a c220 c280 etc.

I have a problem with my 2006 E Class CDi220.
When the car is stationary there is excessive movement at the top ball joint and the wheel/tyre is also moving a lot at the top on the passenger side. Something is cluncking when I pull the tyre towards me and the tyre/wheel moves too about...
MOT advisory states: Slight lift in both lower ball joints - slight play.
I've had a quote for the job and the mechanic says that ML55 AMG have an up-rated ball joint because it is a heavy performance car and the genuine Mercedes AMG ball joints are more expensive. Is that right?
Can anybody explain how these work/look when undone?
I am assuming I should hold the 14mm hose, and undo the 11mm nut/joint (on top), using flare spanners.
But they will not budge, and seems to twist in the holder, so I undid the holder/bracket for now.
Thanks in advance.
I am looking for 56 - 09 E320CDI saloon with features such as heated leather, bi-xenon, memory seats, through loading etc.
One car I came across has MB service history and not too high mileage - just over 100k. MOT history contains a number of waarying signs of bad ownership such as...
Seen a lot of posts relating to this subject and I have seen comments like, you need Mercedes specific spring compressors and mecredes specific press tool.
So here is the way I did it with the use of my dads expertise and experience. This will come in useful for people like me (I don't like...
The wife's slk flagged up bearing play at mot. I replaced both front hubs and set to 0.01 - 0.02mm of float with dial gauge.
However I don't think the garage diagnosed correctly, as with new hubs, if I grab the wheels at 3 and 9 o'clock there is play (pulling one hand in and the other...
I have been having a creaking noise from the front of my S Class for a while now and eventually got round to looking at it tonight. It appears it is the lower ball joint which is the culprit (have saw this is a common problem).
I cant seem to find a DIY for it - does anyone...
now that I have finally sorted my hard start issue on my 2001 S320cdi I would like to move onto sorting the suspension issues the car has.
I intend to change the lower arms on the front suspension, the lower ball joints on the hub carrier that attach to the other arm and both track...
I'm about to replace front ball joints (alluminium one), I was thinking of doing it by myself, is it possible to do it on the drive way with normal tools or it need to be done by specialist ? What tools would I need, any hints what should be done after ? I've read that geometry and...
