    Last week I had the electro plate nd v/v body changed on my 2008 ML-420, that seemed to sort my problems until this morning.

    Car wouldn't rev, took for ever to get to 60/70. The only code that came up on my diagnostics was P2557, however the independent has hooked it up on star and apparently it's the rig EGR v/v at fault. Another £434 plus labour after last weeks £1500.

    Was considering changing it myself, and was wondering, how easy is it to get at on the 420CDI, and also is it the right hand side as you look at it from the front, or right hand side as you look from the drivers seat.

    Any pictures /how to's would be appreciated as my WIS doesn't cover the W164.

    Cheers,
    Mark

    I seriously wonder how effective this forum will be when you're no longer around Malcolm, long, long, long may your participation continue chap. :D

    I must write that I find this forum without question the best car forum I have been a member of.

    Regards
    Pete

    Might try cleaning it before parting with my hard earned. Any recommendations for the best products to use for cleaning / how successful this has been, if you have tried it.

    It's electronic. Cleaning it will probably not work

    And are you sure it's over £400 without labour? That sounds pretty steep to me

    It certainly worked on my electric one, three years since MB wanted around £300 for a new one so I cleaned it - still going strong.

    That's each excluding fitting. Only the right one has thrown up a fault. I will try cleaning it first , nothing ventured nothing gained.
