List of probs for my car,pls look and advice..
hello everyone..i had recently brought my car to AAM for an inspection..i expected up to 8 of the problems,but surprisingly,they found 22 faults!! i know i have been asking alot of questions here,but i need to ask u guys once again for advice and possibly help..ill start by listing down their list of probs..

1.Front and rear door RH(right hand) side scratched(is this even a problem??)
2.Front and rear fender RH/LH side scratched
3.Front and rear bumper not fitted properly(i dont think i need help for the first 3)
4.The rear absorber RH/LH leaking(im gonna buy 4 new absorbers soon from proauto in sunway,Rm 258 apiece)
5.The rear lower arm bush RH/LH weak
6.The rear link arm bush RH/LH weak
7.The rear coil spring rubber spacing RH/LH weak
8.Rear exhaust mounting crack
9.Auto transmission gasket leaking
10.Auto transmission sensor leaking
11.Steering box leaking
12.Air cond. pipe leaking
13.Front stabilizer bar bush weak
14.The front and rear LH side sport rim cap missing
15.Front and rear rotor disk brake RH/LH side was scratched and needs skimming/rear brake pads should be changed(planning to get brake pads from proauto,Rm 115,need to know estimate cost of skimming)
16.Brake fluid dirty needs flushing
17.Engine oil needs service(this i was gonna do anyways,castrol magnatec 10/40 )
18.Power steering fluid insufficient(this is due to item 11)
19.When turning right or left,slow steering response(probably due to item 20)
20.Engine needs recalibration
21.Rear brake light LH side not functioning
22.Coupling and damper needs to be replaced

There u have it guys..i need advice in terms of wat items do u think i should get from a half-cut shop,wat should i buy new(price estimate and from where) wat mech can u recommend for doing all this properly and cheap,rough cost estimate,how long it should take and any other advice that u guys can give..

Bro MRDJ
Thanks for sharing with us. I wish I can be of assistance. Unfortunately, I don't own this car...only an admirer. U did the right thing by starting a new thread. I'm sure our Mybenz brother will response to yr questions.
How much does AAM charge u to this inspection? I'm impressed with the level of detail.
To answer yr quesstion IMHO only item 14, is worth going for chop2 shop. The rest is not worth taking the risks bro. Plse keep us posted on yr progress. U have a nice beauty in yr posession. We call her MADONNA....

Re: List of probs for my car,pls look and advice..
Bro MRDJ,
I have a w124 and it is undergoing some repairs. Although our car models are not the same, at least I could give you ideas what should be done on your car, and the pricing i wrote down is for W124, W140 lebih kurang je kot..
Fault No.11: Steering box kit + Lock nut= RM65 and RM250 for labour charge.
Fault No.08: The mounting costs around RM50 per piece, check how many mounting rubbers are going out of comission
Fault No.09: Auto tranny gasket + filter + ATF= RM30 + RM35 + RM18/litre
Fault No.10: Sensor leaking? Need to get quotation for new sensor
Fault No.16: Flushing brake fluid requires about 1 litre of new brake fluid= around RM15/litre excluding labour charge. (kerja senang, kalau pomen charge mahal, tamparlah beliau sekuat2 hati!)
Fault No.20: (W140 fuel injection kan?) Tune engine + sevice throttle body= RM80. kalu w124 230E RM30 jer..
Fault No.21: Check if any tikus has gigit the wayar lampu. If not, maybe it is the bulb (RM5/piece) or the fuse (RM1.50/ piece).
Fault No. 22: Coupling? You mean longshaft coupling? RM165/ piece.

I bought OEM parts, therefore cheaper, compared to mercedes brand.

Re: List of probs for my car,pls look and advice..
Thanks for both ur replies..
Dear Mabel,AAM charges Rm60.00 for members and Rm 120.00 for non members..this is only the 40 point visual inspection,so they wont dyno ur car or anything like that,but wat they did for me was good enough i guess..
if u would like to get ur car inspected,u have to call them up,and then make an appointment with them,and when u go,u need to bring along a photostat copy of ur grant and a letter telling them why u want ur car inspected(dont worry,i just wrote a surat rasmi that probably isnt even good enough for SPM,took me 10 mins) then u gotta bring ur car to Jln Semarak and the inspection takes bout an hour..
Haha why do u call it Madonna? My cars name is Melissa

Bro Myv6,u have no idea how relieved i am to see the estimated cost of the parts,i feel much lighter now,thanks alot man,really..i feel so happy with myself for posting my conundrum on Mybenz..

Anyone else wanna contribute some ideas? Thanks again in advance and one day i hope ill be able to help benzers the way u guys have done for me so far..

Bro MRDJ,

Thank you!.
Melissa is good name. The reason, I’m thinking of MADONNA since she has two characters, beauty and the beast. She fits into the “lady in red” and finally she’s one hell of a ride.Hehehe

Bravo and well done Bro MyV6 for coming up with the estimated cost of parts. Personally, I have this impression that W140 part and labour is about 10-20 % more expensive than W124. Hence, this will be a good test case to see if this is true.

Keep us posted Bro MRDJ.

Haha mabel,the reasons for Madonna are very good,esp the part bout being a wild ride 10-20% more should be quite acceptable la,as we all know labour charge can always be knocked down..
19owner,i was pleasantly surprised at the level of their inspection too,u should send ur car over if u feel got sth wrong with it..

Im very sorry if u feel im taking too long with the updates,sometimes at night when i try to post on the forum,it gets jammed and takes forever to load,for some reason thats beyond me..

Anyways,for those of u who are interested,i have updates!!

I went to proauto today,and purchased the following items
1.Absorbers(bought 4 new ones terus,was looking for eibach,but since they didn have,i took bilstein)
2.Rear brake pads
3.Auto transmission gasket..
i also wanted to purchase some brake fluid(they didn have stock of Merc brake fluid) ,longshaft coupling(theyre charging me rm145 so i thought i might as well ask my mech or city cycle to get and pasang terus) and some ATF(costing me rm25 per litre,and i need 7) but i thought better i hold on first and make another trip next time..

Todays shopping cost me Rm 1159(actually i wanted to bargain abit,but they swiped my card di),but im quite happy with it,coz i already got 3 things out of the way(including the most expensive one)..does anyone know where i can find a good tuning shop to get my engine calibration done? also,does city cycle do brake skimming? and anyone wanna tag along for the next shopping trip? would be good to have some experts on hand

Today just got the merc back, changed engine and gearbox mounting, repaired all the leaks and the car does not vibrate violently like usual, so calm, like a proper merc! Ask any mechs if they have the equipment to diagnose the engine, then you can perform engine calibration there. I'm sure city cycle got the proper tools to get the works done on your car, but i usually send my car to my mech, and of course, i send my car to him because he is an honest guy, believe me! next time you do shopping spree, make sure the date is tepat (gaji time), otherwise no shopping maa..

Regarding brake skimming I rasa u shud give a second thought to it. My mechanic once adv me kalau over skimming, piring bolih jadi nipis and bila brek it can pecah esply for big car.

I once heard (from my friend) a volvo turn turtle in Bangsar cos brake piring keretanya pecah. Just adv u.......to be careful
