As it appears the SL's disc shields are NLA, it's about time I gave mine some attention.
Once they're media blasted and I've brazed/welded up any damage, they'll need a finish coat, something durable that will cope with the harsh environment (dust, stones etc).
What's the popular concensus?
My drivers side front brake splash shield or back plate has thrown the lower mounting and is noisy over bumps etc. Are these fixable by tack welding it back in place or is a new shield easy to get and fit!
Assuming the disc needs to come of so SBC brakes need to be shut down first. I...

My car manual turned up yesterday and looking through it, I've realized my car and m8ts car don't have a heat shield at back of airbox. I've posted picture of mine here. Can somebody PLEASE reply with a picture of theirs so I know what it actually looks like...
A very unusual thing happened at the weekend! The missus and kids all reported a funny "grating" noise which I couldn't hear.
"Do you hear that?" Long pause to listen carefully.
"no - is it still doing it?" I replied
"No it's stopped now!"
"Thanks for telling me! Exactly how long did the...
A well known glass replacement service came out this week and replaced my smashed windscreen with the make "Solar Shield - SafeVue)
It looks virtually the same as the original and the job seems to be a good one. To put my mind at rest, does anyone know anything about this make of windshield?
I'm going to mount a wireless PIR sensor on a tree trunk which is really intended for inside use, rather than outside use. They work file when protected by the soffit so I'm planning to shield it in some way, to protect it from water and other debris falling from above.
The PIR is the same...
I bought few months ago a W203. This week I decided fix a noise in the rear wheel. What was my surprise when I saw the rear Axle and Rear Brake Dust Shield. They are full of rust:crazy:. So I'll need some help:
1- I was thinking in change all Axle (+- £ 150 on ebay). Anyone...
Exhaust heat shield was damaged on my R170, local garage removed it said it wasn't worth replacing as it doesn't actually do anything.
Should I get it replaced or are they right and I should forget about it?
The heat shield for the exhaust on my car seems to have broken off most its mounting points and now I have this annoying rattle that comes from the back :wallbash:
After doing a search on the forum I found that larger penny washers should do the trick but I am confused as to...
Almighty clatter coming home from work tonight - the shield protector behind the wheel has sheared off and is rattling around.

my ARB link has broken on the rear of my 1985 SL. Unfortunatly the bolts are too rusted to be able to remove in situ, so i need to angle-grind them off.
To gain access i need to remove the dust shield. i've removed the caliper and disc but cant see how the sheild is removed.... do i...
Just back from a 500 mile trip – the first big-ish one in the new car – only to hear a strange rattling noise as I left the motorway.
(Incidentally, 25 mpg at 75/85 and the occasional thrash. Is that average?)
I’ve found the cause, it’s the metal shield which protects the centre...
I have looked under the car as I need to see what going on with the prop/ donuts/ uni joint but there is a shiel hidding it, and it look like its screwed from the inside of the car, this could not be right, could it? I don't want to start to take the carpet out to move the shield...
What is the...
For good or bad when I bought my new merc in 2006 I had the star shield treatment. Now after washes and the odd power wash I want to 'top up' the treatment. Any suggestions for what to use? I thought MER might be good but I really need some good advice! Thanks in advance.
The heat shield on my car for the back box is loose and noisy. I have tried to secure it a few times but it keeps coming loose.
Its obviously there for a reason but is it ok just to remove it so its no longer loose and noisey?
