Re: Sad and Dissappointment
Dear kenloke,

I am having my fair share of problems with the W203.

Luck (or bad luck in this case) may seem to have a hand in it, but sometimes, designed or assembled.

Recently, I spent quite a tad replacing the (remote) locking mechanism for both the front doors. They broke about 2 months apart. At that point in time, I was quite annoyed at that incident. Now, I looked at them as part of the wear and tear, and I am glad the mechanic did a good job replacing and installing the new parts.

Below is a link to an old post on Merc (US Site):-
http://www.mybenz.org/zoopp/html/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=2506&forum=1#forumpost40188

If that link it not available, try this:-
http://www.mercedes-benz-usa.com/

I let you draw your own conclusions from reading the site.

Problems happen, and as mentioned earlier - they can even test and catch the best of mechanics. Hopefully they will be fixed; maybe not during the 1st or 2nd go, but eventually....

I hope your ride causes you less grieve in the future.

Cheers! Chris

Re: Sad and Dissappointment
you want to know what magic they have done to my car?

After they did the Top Overhaul, my car start leaking water..the water jacket problem (aren't supposed checked for the leaking as well??), the gearbox oil leaking (b4 that was ok), some brackets and screw gone (they didn't "passang" balik - just leave it "kosong"), my horn become miao miao" no more benz horn ....

I sent my car back to the workshop (this is the 3rd time after top overhaul i visit them). I can't work without my car (i think most of you only have one car to work rite - i'm not rich ppl, only have one car). No income when send for repair ...

Hope they will seriously repair my baby.

Just curious, is w203 "bad" quality or is it the workshop problem? how come my car has many problems??

I've changed the oilseal for gearbox last year August, now leaking.

I have changed the lower arm (NEW) last year August, now bush oil leaking.

I tot continental car has better quality than JDM. but how come my case is so dissapointed?? maybe bad luck :(

hello kenloke

if you fill up the reserve tank to the brim and put the cap back, there'll be some water loss. assuming all the cooling components got no leak, then the water loss over time should be very minimal.

say every weekend, you check the reserve tank...you'll notice that the water level is a bit below the neck where you put the cap on...when you top up water, its very much less than 500ml at most. but if you notice that the water level is dropping over a period of time, then there could be a leak somewhere...sometimes if the cap itself is not good, water will come out thru it when the pressure builds up....btw, "water under the car" could be innocently due to aircond condensation water dripping out...

enjoy yr ride!!

cheers

Dear all Mercy,

After waiting for so long finally i took my car yesterday(23 May), no more jerking and looks good. Engine sounds smooth.

But I checked my car's water tank yesterday night, not full. So I filled until full and had a short drive(15KM). This morning i checked the water level again. abit of water gone. I filled again. I saw there was water under my car. I will check again in the afternoon. :( Don't they check the water leaking as well? Update soon
