I just bought a used set of 2006 SLK alloys from my W638 Vito. I check the PCD, offset etc. and all seems good, but the wheel bolts from the alloys are a smaller diameter than the ones off the existing steel wheels. It seems the steel wheels have a 14mm bolt, but the alloys have 12mm...
Car loaded ready for trip with kids to Suffolk. Parked up in local supermarket car park and tore a small hole in the sidewall of my 2 month old premium contact 5 (osr). Proceeded to put on spare but wheel nuts protruding slightly. Set off to local tyre shop to get replacement tyre but slight...

After several discussions with Acid and Weistec and plenty trawling through the American forums i opted for changing...

My car is a 2002 C220 Coupe with standard 16" alloys. The current wheel studs won't fit correctly so I'm wondering is there a specific size etc I need to get. Sorry a bit random and silly but I prefer to clean cars than...

Car is in for the Port Inlet Shutoff Motor at present. I have had a call to say that two manifold stud's have sheared?
Is this a risk of the work or could there have been carelessness. Not sure where to position myself on the cost as yet, but definitely do not want to be unreasonable.

On two of my seatbelts, the small black plastic studs (about the size of a 5p coin) that prevent the chrome fixing buckle from falling to the bottom of the belt have broken off and gone missing. Its only a small point, but its annoying.

Just got back from an 800 mile round trip in my c220d and have a tale of woe to tell :crazy: .
