I need help on this one. I had the car serviced at Nationwide Service Centre, which is not a MB specialist garage.
Since then it's been very sluggish and also slow to accelerate. I also had an F fault reading came up on the instrument panel.
I took it back to Nationwide - they drove it around the block and said there was nothing wrong with it - they didn't have a diagnostic machine to read out any faults recorded.
I then took it to have a diagnostic test at a MB specialist garage. They said so many items came up on the diagnostic machine that it was best to clear all the entries then drive the car until the problem recurs. Then they would run the diagnostics again to see what's reported.

The car was driving perfectly well before the service at Nationwide. Could the servicing have caused a fault, and if so, what is the likely cause ?

Hi need to know if acs[ semi auto] or fully auto we do regular repairs to ki clutch plates and gear box valve blocks. If acs could be just a matter of replacing brushes.
