Hi all penghulus and sifus.

I've just bought my first merc, 1995 a e220 masterpiece and there is a few niggles and questions about it.

1. before starting and while driving, i hear a ticking noise like the sound when you turn on the indicators. Its not constant because when I drive, it will stop for a while before it starts ticking again. The sound was somewhere at the front passenger seat under the dashboard. Can anyone tell me what is causing the sound and how to solve it because its very annoying and worrying.

2. The knob to adjust the side mirror does not work for the left side. Is this a DIY-able fix or I have to go to the shops for this and how much its gonna cost me?

3. Being a noob Merc owner, I don't know how much to expect for a regular service. Some say its about 800++ to 1k++. can anyone tell me whats the price I should be expecting to pay?

I hope all the euro penghulus sifus can help me. I'm very noob about this euro car stuff.

Thanks a bunch.

Re: E220 Noob
Sir, Good Evening. Thanks for your GENERAL questions. We will need to know your mileage and roughly when was the last service done. The amount $ that you will have to spend will depend on the current condition of your car. The "additional" routine checks should include, auto gear box oil check & possible change of gear box oil, radiator condition.

Choose a very good MB workshop and "half" of your worries are over.

Our experienced friends at our website will assist you in maintaining your MB very well.

"Enjoy your Benz like I do."

Take Care

hello sir kowreck! congrats on ur new ride!
1. i have no idea about it sir
2. if the switch got prob, its +-rm150 i think.. i replaced mine a couple of months back.. if wan to DIY, boleh try tapi the parts inside very small, kinda hard to fix back.. if the motor i have no idea..
3.regular service, if car no prob, just change the engine oil will do.. less than rm300 boleh dah.. depends what oil u're using..

hi, selamat datang...

1. clicking sound? can be from many source...hard to say as can't see hope it's something minor though...and not a short circuit in action

can be a relay sound or something from the aircond system control unit...better get a mercedes mechanic to take a look quick, to be on the safe side...

2. check fuse...and then connection at the switch and also at the mirror...and then also check the condition of the motor...

3. since you just got your car, and assuming that you want to have all the oil, fluid and lube changed - depending on type and grade of oil used, i belive this one off service would touch the figure you mentioned. yup, maybe in the region of rm800 and not more...you should also budget and plan for parts change, step by step...talk more, so that can understand more

HI Sir,

Please check our directory listing on our website. There are about 3 choices in Shah Alam. If these workshops are listed, then it must have been recommended by some of our MYbenz members.

My simple advice " choose a good workshop and stay with them".

"Enjoy your Benz like I do"

Best Wishes,
JOE
