Hi guys ! i have 2 problems with my 2004 clk 270 cdi , first one : some pipe broke i think and between 2k and 4k rpm i hear a strange air sucking sound , i dont think its from the turbocharger because the sound is on the left side and the turbo is on the right (from what i know ) side sitting in the car . and 2nd , sometimes goes in limp mode and it`s kinda stuck at 2000 rpm no matter how much i accelerate .

i really need a specialist in west midlands , birmingham area , even 10-20 miles away .


thanks

Still sounds like a turbo pipe to me?
I had a similar problem with the Jag, Turbo was at the rear but the sound was coming from the front.

Also W.D.M. Cars in Perry Barr (by the race course) are very good. Bought my GL from them and had a few bits if work done.

Another indy worth considering is MSL performance in Armoury Road Small Heath Birmingham.
There isn't much they don't know about Mercedes.

I've spent several hours looking and looking , and i didnt find anything . Mercland is too far away from me so i will try calling the other ones that you guys gave me .

Are the prices ok at msl performance and acms walsall or they charge me just like mercedes dealership ?

My car (C220 Estate) recently went into limp mode then intermittently went back to normal. Mercland found a loose and broken Boost hose and replaced it. Cost: £132.50 inclusive - and they lent me a courtesy car while they had it (for just one day). I guess, if you can choose an off-peak the time of day, it would take you about an hour to get there.

The difference with independents is the labour charge generally, Parts will be similar since they use genuine
MB per hour c£135 - indies could be half that and a more personalised service generally

Can you be clearer

Has the independent seen the car and evaluated or is that an estimate based on what you told them

If not then that's what you need to do, maybe take it to ACMs get a live evaluation and firm price [it will definitely be much less than a MB dealer for labour]

Take a breather ,get a live quote and then maybe ask other indies for quote but again I say ACMS will be fair

The car is at acms right now , they told me 1000£ for the part and 600 for hours of work . After this he can check the air sound too . This is what he told me

He saw the car and said that something is missing from the intake manifold thats why it goes into limp mode , and the solution is a new manifold and the price is 1k £

ok that's great,you are in good hands,without knowing the full detail I cant comment on cost of parts but I am sure that if that's what Mark says needs doing then that will be right

Cheers
