I did play a hand in this one, a few arguments from all, but the guy who wrote it all was a very good engineer.

It never ceases to amaze me how generous people are and the beauty of this forum is that it provides the base for information like this to be shared freely - purely as an act of friendship with many people the writer has never met and maybe never will.

I don't have ABC on my C-Class (as far as I know) but I find this fascinating and as Malcolm says, the writer is very obviously a strong engineer who is capable of documenting and happy to share his experience with others. Well done Darren and thank you.

- heh heh..
- Didn't think it would be too long before a major work with Malcolm's hand in it would appear!

A good write up.
Just to add if you car has ABC fitted make sure your engine mounts are good, and in particular the left hand mount ( this takes the brunt of the torque ) . Most burst abc pipes are as a result of failed engine mounts!!!!!
And some are extremely labour intensive.
Also when flushing the fluid sds uses a different procedure to 'rodeo' . It's a forward, back motion rather than a circulating one.
