Hi Guys,

Me and the Mrs have just acquired a 99 ML430 with 95k miles and are wondering a few things - perhaps you could help...

Unfortunately no owners manual. Is there a haynes manual - or even a free pdf to download?

We have the rear wheel carrier - is there a kit to put it under the car (having found no wheel well) should we want to remove it?

When are the belts due for a change?

Lastly the dvd screen in the roof panel seems not to turn on. Any simple checks you can think of?

Cheers

Welcome to the forum. Why not buy the hand book about £18 from your local MB dealer.

The engines use timing chains so nothing to think about on that front

Check Ebay for the manual, sometimes they are as cheap as £2

Thanks for the replies.

Good news about the timing chain - hopefully cheaper than having to replace belts!

Will track a manual and handbook in due course - ebay here I come....
