What a pantomime, a week last Saturday I decided to take my beloved E200K for a spin, it vary rarely gets used these days. Well we all know what state our roads are in these days, and sure enough I hadn't gone far when I hit a hole in the road. Immediately I knew I had a flat, and with traffic racing by, I proceeded to change the tyre to my unused fourteen year old skinny tyre that had never been on the car. Ok so far so good, where is the wheel key? found it, the plastic covers that fit over the wheel bolts to hide the crap rusty Mercedes wheel bolts, where is the puller ? found it, Great. The hole had ripped the side wall of the tyre, but not damaged the alloy wheel which was lucky. Of to the tyre specialist for a new tyre, straight forward I thought, have you got the key for the wheel sir, could I find it no I ****** could not. In all the panic what I did with it I don't know, been back to look for it three time still no luck oh well ring Mercedes Nottingham, explain the problem, tell them its a 2003 year, bring it down we have the master keys. Get there no they haven't, that's an earlier car sir we don't have those, go back home and explain to a mate in the business what happened. Rings me fifteen minutes later, go back to Mercedes Dave they have found the old keys, fantastic, sure enough I arrive back some twenty minutes later, the guy comes out with a case while I am in the waiting room, didn't know what was going on while I was drinking there coffee. We have found the correct key sir it has to come from Germany £35.04 will you pay for it now, it will be here on Wednesday, I made the mistake of taking my other car down and when I got home guess what ? that didn't fit either. Another twenty minute drive back to the stealers, the parts man came out with his master keys, which were knackered, none fitted, he went in to see if some of the lads had got any in there tool boxes and came out with a handful, none fitted. Where do we go from here then I asked, you will have to go to a specialist wheel shop and have them drilled of, I can't do anything ells sorry. Another twenty minutes drive home, I get home to find my next door neighbour with the AA outside his house, split turbo pipe, I casually mentioned the problem with my locking wheel nuts, and did they have a special tool to remove them ? yes they did. To cut a long story short if I paid thirty nine pounds to join the AA he would take them of, job done took five minutes, end of hassle. So remember folks after this very long ramble, if this happens to you, push the ****** car in the river and get a taxi.
