DIY Mercedes-Benz repair: common malfunctions

Mercedes-Benz cars have become an example of excellent quality and technical perfection for many people. On the other hand, the more complicated the construction of units and assemblies is, the more expensive their repair is. But you can save money on some parts replacement if you do it on your own. Information on car defects which can be eliminated yourself, as well as tips on DIY Mercedes-Benz repair and maintenance, are available below.

Chassis

A front suspension spring cup is the weak spot of some cars. This particularly refers to Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W210). Since a spring cup is spot-welded to the vehicle body, the new part installment requires assistance of specialists. However, you can change springs and shock absorbers on your own following Mercedes-Benz repair and operation tutorial step by step.

A compressor is an essential part of the air suspension. If there is a noticeably lower vehicle ride height, this component is likely to be broken. There are two ways to solve this problem: you may contact a service centre to have your compressor repaired or try to replace the defective component at home, having downloaded step-by-step video tutorial on Mercedes-Benz repair from AUTODOC Club for free.

Pneumatic cylinders can break down as well. They can be restored: all you need is to contact a specialized center and change the damaged cylinder to the hermetically sealed one for an extra fee. Remember: timely cleaning of these components may considerably increase their lifespan. To properly demount and mount car parts, download an illustrated PDF tutorial on Mercedes-Benz repair.

Engine

4- and 6-cylinder in-line engines, used in Mercedes-Benz C-Class (W202) and E-Class (W210) are apt to cylinder head deformation. This leads to the engine seal failure, oil leakage at the joint of the cylinder head and the cylinder block and the break of the exhaust manifold rear stud. If this is the case, resort to the specialists. They should disassemble the engine, grind the head and valve seats, replace all sealing elements.

However, you can slow down destructive processes following a few simple tips. To ensure proper engine cooling, we recommend you wash the radiator once a year, timely check operability of the main and auxiliary fans, visually inspect the drive belts.

Camshaft adjuster magnet often breaks down in Mercedes-Benz ML-Class and C-Class models with V6 engine. To replace it, use our manuals and video tutorials on DIY Mercedes-Benz repair and maintenance.
