Hi, guys. I just bought a 2009 Mercedes A160 CDI, diesel. According to its service history, the mileage is 105K, and it never gets the timing belt changed. Should I change it immediately? Also I cannot even find the timing belt in the bonnet, where is it?

I posted a question about possible faults with a 2004 C180 that I may be buying. Grober was kind enough to respond and he said that there was a potential Timing Chain issue on higher mileage cars.
With this in mind, I have confirmed with the vendor that the car hasn't had the timing...

I am new here. We are driving a 2007 E200, so M271 engine.
Because so much is written about the wear of the timing chain and sprockets I decided to take a look: I found a lot of teeth broken off of the sprockets. The chain was still very tight, so that might have saved the engine.
I don't suppose anyone has managed to remove the timing case cover of an M113 5.0 whilst its still in the car, without removing the front end of the car?
It's a w163 ML 500. Both head gaskets changed but think it's skipped a tooth and the only way I can see of timing this engine properly is...
I'm hoping someone here can help me.
I'm getting a rattling noise from the engine (C180, 2Litre Petrol, 2001. 111 series engine). The noise is akin to marbles in a can.
It only occurs at idle however.
I've recorded a 30 second video and put it on youtube...
Does anyone know a good garage in Cardiff Area where I can get the pump timing done on an old 308D Sprinter Van.
The Garage I have been trying to get it done for 2 weeks has let me down and I need to get my Van running properly.
Any thoughts would be appreciated
