    Sealing diamond cut wheels

    I'm about to get my AMG 7-spoke (black inlay/diamond-cut face) wheels refurbished and am thinking how to preserve the as-new finish for as long as possible. Previously polished/waxed/3 coats of PoorBoys wheel sealant several times a year plus weekly washing, but I am wondering if there are any...

    w221 wind noise, sealing issue, anyone got access to TSBs?

    Hi all, I have a small but incessant wind noise in my 2008 s class when driving over about 65mph. It comes from the top rear corner of the drivers door, right next to my ear and sounds like a high pressure hissing. It really spoils what is otherwise a very serene motorway cruising experience...

    Sealing new wheels

    Have just purchased a brand new set of wheels for my CLS. Prior to having the tyres fitted I thought it would be a good idea to apply some products to them to seal them. Would a few layers of poor boys do it? If so how long am I supposed to leave it between applying coats as I believe you are...

    Sealing My Wheels For Winter

    In preparation for winter, I took all four wheels off, painted the rusty hubs that the previous owner hadn't treated, cleaned the wheels and calipers and waxed them with Bouncers Looking Sweet Wheel Wax. They sure do sparkle now (though the phone shots don't really show it) and I'm hoping the...

    Best options for sealing new Calcite White paint?

    Some advice from you good people please. I take delivery of a new C350 in Calcite White next week. I'm thinking it's prudent to give the factory fresh paint a coat of a decent wax/sealant. What would you guys recommend? I'm a big fan of Colinite 476 - was thinking of using this, but see...

    W210 Diesel Injector Sealing Washer Extraction

    Read with interest lots of posts on the dreaded CDi injector removal problems. I have just removed the rear-most (No. 6) injector due to blow-by of the sealing washer. Fortunately for me it could only have been blowing for 150 miles as I replaced a glow plug last Sunday and it definately...

    Injector sealing ring replacement

    A previous thread made note of some dried blank gunk around the injectors and it was identified as soundproofing that had melted due to injector sealing rings failing. Well, I've got the same stuff around one of my injectors so I want to replace the sealing rings. Can any one tell me if...
