    I'm sure neither of those codes are Mercedes or Generic OBDII codes.
    What does the gendan code system say they are.?

    At a guess the problem is a stuck turbo actuator.

    Have you tried asking Gendan.

    I went to their website but they don't have the info on these codes . the genden machine had no interpretation. can I take of the turbo and free it as it goes well most of the time also could it be the air mass sensor . thanks by the way car is 52 plate facelift model

    Check teh actuator arm is moving the turbo vane ring. There is a special grease for the shaft as they stick. In addition check the motor under the inlet manifold is moving the intake flaps fully.


    It might be worth having a proper MB Star diagnostic performed.

    Nice cheap fix. For info you can measure the voltage produced by the MAF as a diagnostic aid. It should be approximately 2v at idle and 4.8 at full chat under boost.
