Ok. In Germany they only have 1 year on every MBZ and 100k km. We here in Switzerland have 3 yrs and also 100k km. You guys are lucky with 4 yrs

watch it again, the engine is definitely on. You can see the belts turning in the latter portion of the video.

I'd rather have the 3yr 100K km warranty! My car is almost exactly 3yrs old and I'm already past 50K mi (80k km).

Ok I see we both have the same problem. I'm doing almost 30k km a year (average in our small country is 15k) due if my job. Just hope that I don't have that much problems I had with the S203!

We once (when I worked for the dealer 3 years back) had the same problem with some E55 K engines if I'm right. If I'm right our mechanics used a tons of WD40 to solve the problem but you better wait for the answer of your service advisor!

From the video it is pretty obvious that it syncs perfectly with the belt. I wouldn't be surprissed if it was either a tensioner or a bolt on component. In my experience, these have been farily easy to diagnose and repair. Good luck and let us know what happens.

yeah it rained a lot the last week or two, my service advisor said that the bearing on these cars is a new design & new supplier for Merc. he said that they have been going out a lot lately. so keep an eye on yours any new squeaks or unusual sounds take it in immediately! He also said should only take about 30 mins to replace, so im stoked that its covered under warranty but not happy about things going wrong in the first year of ownership, but i guess things could be worse right????
