    Every so often the Grey/Silver component with SBC on vibrates and starts whirring. Does anyone else get this on their W211? It can be quite distracting!

    Why? If the SBC pump did not operate, then it would be time to change the car. The car is building brake pressure every now and then, most often when you start up the car.

    Is the pump original, or did I interpret the MY right?

    I always thought that noise was the fuel pump.

    Nope its that box thingy. I opened the bonnet up the other day. There was no key in the car and the car wasn't on.

    I jumped when the thing started vibrating and whirring lol. It was like the car was communicating with me!
