Hi Folks,

With regards to newbie ownership of a Merc in general,

Is there a list of common faults to watch out for ( Idealy listed by model type etc ? )
Being new on here - I have had a smooch about, ( Honest )
but haven't been able to find any relevant details as yet :neutral:

Any help much appreciated :Oops:

Regards M.G.

Note - I'm not implying any disrespect to you good folks -
it's more a case of my own personal view ( from a newbies perspective )
as to how best navigate the many sections ( as I personally find it a tad confusing ) :confused:

You could use the search button,enter the type of car, or engine, and any fault and something should come up.

It is too hard to have a model list of faults as many cars share the same engine and gearbox for instance, or just ask a question specific to a particular model

The reason the forums may seem strange is that many faults are common across a range, ie all of the body styles will have some parts that are identical to other models, engines, electrics etc etc, so its pointless having a section for each car type. Once you get around the idea of how it works, you will see there really isnt any better way to have it organised
