Hi

I'm new to the forum, I have a 2003 CLK55 AMG. when accelerating only at any speeds above 30mph i get a loud vibration from the back of the car, this comes and goes only when accelerating. Any ideas what this could be? Thanks!

yeah it's a low drone noise and it's more and more frequent now, just about every time i accelerate. is this an expensive fix? can i do any damage by driving it like this?

i've had a quick read through, do you think this is definately a valeo prob?

just so i have understood correctly, what exactly is the prob with the valeo, something to do with mixing fluids?

cheers

Sounds like what you have,

The rad leaks coolant into the iol cooler for the box,

A lot of work and money!
