    Silly question about sump plug on W210

    Hello all, I've just bought a 2002 E220 cdi Estate Diesel. I want to change the oil, but haven't succeeded in getting the front of the car up on the ramps yet as the front lower body panel fouls on the ramps before the front wheels reach them.

    Oil Filter - Silly Question?

    Does anybody know the reason why the Hengst/Mann oil filters for the M113 (and no doubt other) MB engines have to be fitted with the black line round the outside of the filter element the correct way up? I ask because I have a Bosch oil filter, supplied by ECP by mail order, which has no such...

    Silly OBD question

    While idly browsing through some OBD2 tools, I kept seeing references to Bank 3 and Bank 4. I understand Bank 1 and Bank 2 refer to V-engines, with Bank 1 housing cylinder number 1, but what are Bank 3 and Bank 4? I thought they may be sensors, but then saw references to Bank 1 Sensor 2...

    Roof bars (hopefully not a silly question)

    Getting roof bars for my Shooting Brake. Does anyone know if the Thule ones screw into the proper mounts on the car or do they clip in elsewhere. Torn between the OEM parts and Thule, anyone have experience of them and the bike racks? Thanks.

    Possible silly question about idler damper strut in C250 TD W202 diesel engine

    With the top mounting bolt removed, is it normal to be able to remove the metal bush from the rubber surround? My instincts say no, but at the same time the strut only needs to take out forces in bearing, so does it matter providing it's a snug fit (which it is). Cheers, Matt.
