    W124 self levelling valve stripped threads. Which size tap?

    Replaced the SLS lines today on my 1994 W124 estate. However on the levelling value to one of the main 6mm pipes, the threads are stripped. I want to repair this with helicoil, but need to know the type and size of the union/bolt for that part... (ie size and whether its metric/imperial...

    Wind-up threads

    I've been so slow to pick up on what's going on here I must be suffering from senile dementure. Either that or my calendar is faulty and it's April 1st. There are at least three threads running at the moment that are so crazy they must surely be wind-ups. How they've kept going for so many...

    Forum threads with HTML links

    For my sins I am a mod on a small car forum. We've had a request from a large tyre supplier to remove all links to their website from the forum. The path of least resistance is to comply and remove these links. But we don't wish to generate ongoing work having to remove future links. My...

    Repairable Vito Injector Threads?

    Can an injector bolt thread in a 2000 Vito 110cdi cylinder head be repaired relatively easily with a Helicoil or threaded sleeve? There's one for sale locally I was considering for my own use and gather this is a common problem. I'm a diesel tech of a lot years but have no small diesel Merc...

    Trolling threads and posts

    Having received many complaints of trolling especially in C63 threads, I think we need to draw a line in the sand now as the behaviour is getting particularly tiresome (you know who you are). In addition to being tiresome, it is often a most unwelcoming start for new members. Starting...

    Sorry guys another problem, caliper Mounting Bracket Guide Pin threads stripped??

    Sorry to make another thread...but I ran into another problem, it's been a long day. For some reason, and only on the driver side, one of the holes where the caliper guide pin goes into the bracket were completely stripped of its threads. The pin itself is fine. I don't know how or when this...

    Stripped injector hold-down threads on OM611 engine

    Well, the title says it all. Had to extract no.1 injector to cure a severe case of injector seal leakage. When I removed the bolt, half the internal thread from the bore came out with it. Any ideas or advice on how to get this sorted? Looks to me like a case of drilling out the bore a...

    Wheel nut threads

    Two of the bolts on my back wheel hub are not screwing in tightly, the thread seems knackered on the hub. Is it possible to get an insert put in these? A Helicoil or whatnot. Or if not, is it a big job to change the rear hub? I do have a spares car i can cannibalise if necessary at some...

    I think the garage burst the threads on my head .....

    You know this old chesnut ? So the car has been in the garage for 3 whole weeks now. I hired the seating tool for them and printed off loads of material from here. I dropped in last night to see what was happening. I walked in and discovered the injector clamp held in with a home do...

    2 threads in one day about wheels

    This one is about noise. I have a CLK 350 Avant-garde with 18" wheels and continental tyres. When I drive over bumps I hear a thud noise. My mechanic changed the front left shock and anti roll bar which made no difference. So my question is: Are these cars noisy over bumps or is it...

    Technical/Tuning threads

    First point - this post is intended to be in no way critical, its purely an observation, There seem to be way too many political or plainly argumentative posts on here fuelled by the same bunch of antagonists, but little hard core tuning discussion :) Whilst there are a lot of MB specific...
