0_0_0_0_245_153_csupload_64307979Mercedes E class from 2002 to 2010 have two types of braking system one of which as a run out time period causing a dash display similar to the one opposite, we have the ability to regenerate the software on the SBC unit which is considerably cheaper than a replacement unit.



0_0_0_0_230_172_csupload_64308041Opposite is the result of the injectors leaking combustion gases on a cdi engine nicked named the ‘black death’ which sound a lot worse than it normally is, the black carbon can be removed & after removing & cleaning the injectors nothing more than a new sealing washer, seat re-face & new bolt is required.



0_0_0_0_259_152_csupload_64308164Here we have three pictures of the sheered off threaded studs from the exhaust manifold, these warp over time causing the studs to sheer off, this allows exhaust gasses before reaching the turbo allowing loss of power & a smell!, you’ll some times get this when you switch on the heater blower, this we can repair by refacing the manifold & renewing the studs


0_0_0_0_214_160_csupload_64308229Here’s an over heated electrical connector terminal, the poor connection on an electrical connector has caused this fault this one supplied the fuel pump which caused the car to intermittently not start after having several garage failing to cure the fault the customer thankfully found us and now all is well.
