I am trying to repair my '73 450SL but it is getting the better if me.
If anyone has repaired the firewall rust, please let me know how you did it.
I have repairable rust in the plenum chamber and I don't need the bulkhead kit.
I do have rust in the 2 layers of metal in front of it...
One of the car wash guys must have had some keys in their pocket and unfortunately I did not notice it until a while after.
If this can be repaired does antone have any recs, I am in the Reading/Wokingham area.
The material is black artico
First post as newbie, but thought I'd share. Recently purchased a C220 Sport with dark leather interior. Had a scuff about size of your thumb. After failing to locate a professional locally, ordered some leather repair off ebay.
My expectations weren't high but the results were fab -...
As some may know, i recently purchased a clk320 cdi, got it very cheap but it had a few problems, the main one being the inlet shut off motor.
i have removed the inlet flaps and the motor all together and the car is now back on the road.
i have attached some images of the car as it stands...
I have a pair of trousers with a button on the rear pocket that split in half. Sliding into my W204 it scored the Artico of my drivers seat!! Offending button now dealt with but the damage remains and catches my eye every time I get in the car - photo attached.
The damage is...
Ok so I have a nail and a screw in my NS rear tyre.
Can or should this be repaired?
The tyre is a contact sport 5.
First pic is a nail, the second a screw.(sorry for the poor pic quality)

I have a 2000 A140 and had intermittent spluttering/stalling of the engine at low revs, stalling, and finally problems starting. I took it to a garage and after diagnostics he said my ECU may need replacing, and/or the EGR valve has a problem.
I got a second...
Right - just recieved my fully refurbed cluster, it needed refurb as it was draining the battery and the rpms were flickering.
Plugged it in - it flicks on and off, few lights missing ie no engine management light and MPH needle no longer works! and fuel reads always full.
rpm works fine...
Hi, I just thought I'd share my experience of repairing my folding mirror. I clipped another mirror in a narrow street. Really not very hard but enough to break the motor/gearbox part, meaning the mirror just flapped about. The only other damage was a small crack in the indicator lens. I...
Curious to know as I learned most places do the cold vulcanising method, which limits the options for repairing punctures away from the centre tread.
But fitters send discarded tyres away to a place or two where hot vulcanising is used to fully repair and bake the tyre so that it's...
As the title really...
Mine does not work.
I read somewhere that the chances are that it's an easy-ish repair (simple resistor swap or something along those lines?).
Has anyone done it?
How do i take it out? Front or rear?
All help and advice MOST appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Repaired CL55 AMG alloy (front)
Wheel was hairline split at the inside edge and leaking slightly, it took Mercedes 4 weeks to find the split it was so slight.
No dents in the wheel, outside edge is untouched.
They replaced the wheel under warranty and I kept this for a spare after getting it...
my engine light came on last week - I took it to a local garage for a diagnosis.
He put on the computer and said it was a missfire on cyl 6
he replaced 12 plugs and leads at a cost of £355 - 70miles driving and the same fault occured
The question is - does he repair at no...
Our MB got lost over the weekend. After a trip to the garage for wheel bearings it never returned - at least in part as the wrong bearings were supplied initially.
Chased it down today, to find that the mechanic had discovered yesterday that one of the injectors was blown with a fair amount...
