Looking at my 638 Vito (1998 with only 32k miles!) sills earlier, it looks like there may be problems with the sills both sides, at the front end, below the doors.
I can see that there are part sills and full sill replacement parts available, but was wondering if anyone had actually had this...
I have a 2006 C180 Kompressor (1.8L engine) which has done 75,000 miles.
I have heard horror stories of the single timing chain (I believe this model has just one chain) stretching then breaking on this model sometimes, in the region of 70,000 - 120,000 miles, and causing damage to...

As it happens I've been a member for some time but about a year and a half ago, no longer needing a car for work, I lapsed and (ashamed as I am to admit it) sold the Merc.
And so it was utterly inevitable that within a year I would need a car again. But what should I get?
Previously, I was...
One of my injectors is blocked, and the fuel economy is poorer than it should be. Mileage 192,000 miles FSH.
Injector cleaner has made little to no difference.
Its cheaper to buy recon injectors than have mine re-conned:doh: Work that out.

Need to replace my front two tyres on my 2002 C Class Sport Coupe C200 Kompressor.
My current tyres that were on when I bought the car are: 225/45/R17 94W however when I type my car into the tyre checker etc, or look for tyres specific to my car, it appears that the current tyre...
Time for my mum to give up her E Class. She wants something smaller so easier to park etc.
She drove a Toyota Yaris the other day and loved it. But I can't accept that.

I have two Mercedes vehicles which are down on performance and have mpg's 25-45% lower than when I first purchased them and I believe the issue is down to the DPF factory fitted to both.

I posted before regarding the timing chain going on my 276k mile 1988 420SL.
I have located a relatively low mileage engine out of a 420SE to replace - does anyone know whether there are any issues with replacing the SL unit with one from an SE?
