Your Mercedes
03 e55 amg
evening all,i thought i would let you know what happened to me today.i noticed a puddle under my 2003 car e55k amg,i looked at it and found the pipe that runs from coolant bottle down and along the bottom of radiator had been rubbing against a power steering pipe causing it to wear away the cooling pipe,there was a sleeve that had worked its way to the bottom thus offering no protection,so if you have one of these cars i would check it.its on your right as you look at the engine about halfway down.hope this helps
