Check for air leaks into the fuel pipes and check the injector leak-off rate.

Does it start when using Ezi-start?

probably the crank sensor gone duff. This normally shows up more when the engine is hot.

Depends if they snap off while you are taking it out.

My neighbour just did his on his C320 , MB price for the part £100 , GSF price £35 ... had the same part number on it , just not in an MB box.

1/2 hour to swap over . If it snaps while you are taking it out then it's a whole different kettle of fish.

Where in the engine is it situated and does any one have instructions how to replace it or should I just take it to my local indy?

If you order online at ECP use the MBCLUB25 code for 25%.

I don't work for ECP, but bought a clutch, brake discs and pads for our Corolla and saved over £60... Great deal for MBClub members!

It's just above the starter motor through the flange at the rear of the engine.

Do you have a cdi engine? If not it would be best to start a new thread which is more relevant to your problem.
