    Help?????Om642 front main bearing tick after service.

    Have had my w163 320cdi serviced and now has a ticking sound coming from engine. MB has confirmed issue. Anyone here replaced the bearing and can it be done with engine still in place? Also has anyone had to pay to have this done and how much would it be? Thanks

    Main dealer service experience, including 'StarView'

    So the S203 (10 years old, 75k miles) was due for an A service. M-B Ascot is about a mile away but the cheapest option there (drop & go) was £320. M-B Guildford is further away but it was only £250 there; a £70 saving is worth a bit of inconvenience so I booked it in. First surprise was a...
