    Hello all,

    I've got a B service due soon (although a C service is flagged up).

    I've had a look in the Assyst menu, and the Dealer Code for the service comes up as "WOW".

    Don't know whether to laugh or cry . .

    Can anyone tell me what work is to be done for that code ?

    Thanks in advance.

    For an S350, it'll be something to make you raise your eyebrows.............

    Can't recall seeing that before - and I'm sure I'd remember!

    The work required should come up on the ESS, but it isn't always 100% correct, especially if the cars mileage and age don't approx. match the average. http://lite.servicemercedes.co.uk/pc/pc_start.asp

    I have a similar question
    My C350 is now 4 years old and computer says needs B5 service.Its previous service at the dealer was approx 4000 miles ago
    I guess its a biggie as get emails from MB to remind me its due
    Had a look at the excellent link to the service schedule but dont see A B5
    my local Benz dealer contacted me and said it would be approx £600.00 all in but could not tell me exactly what was required,
    from the look of it its an oil and filter and visual brake check as the base service plus time related others, anyone have any clues
    Methinks its maybe time to come out of the dealer network

    A lot of people on here would recommend the Indy route when your car is your age onwards , you will loose Mercedes Mobilio breakdown cover , but you will be able to weigh up the costs for that .
    At 4 years there is generally a bigger service on Mercs that include air filters and fuel filter at 4 years and brake fluid every 2 years that are all charged as extra on top of the normal service .
    The B service is also bigger and more expensive than the A service .

    service schedules are often the minimum work required to make it last just long enough so the failures are outside warranty.

    looking after your car is nothing whatsoever to do with ensuring you get a million point check list (a video) and a quick refill with cheapest oil they can buy in.

    a good indie is more competent, more careful, more experienced, far cheaper and wants your custom next round. Main dealerships are more concerned about the brand of coffee they serve than vehicle maintenance
