Bulletin LI32.25-P-051123 FEB11

Is this a new Bulletin? My E350 has been at dealer since Tuesday AM - noise as described in the Bulletin plus an ongoing vibration (buzzing) issue in Steering Wheel. Called today to see what was going on, since I had not heard anything since dropping it off, and was advised he is waiting on parts - front strut(s). Asked why and was told, "...you heard a noise, so the tech thought we should do this." Not sure if doing just one or both - should they be done as a pair? If say they are just doing one, should I request the other one be done as well? Interesting timing; I just wish they could be up front about what is going on - I am happier knowing the truth and reason for an action, even if it isn't what one would hope for.

Also replacing a defective rear shock absorber PLUS just had a defective front shock replaced in February!!!

Is my vehicle a Zitrone?

Replacing Front Struts

You are a wealth of valuable information adn all that visit this forum surely appreciate your knowledge and insight.

In the case of this bulletin, should both struts be replaced or is replacing one acceptable?

Thanks. LAST question (I hope): Should the vehicle have an alignment after the struts are replaced? Does replacement impact the alignment settings?

No, the only additional step would be to check headlamp adjustment.

Hey Konigstiger, I used this DTB hoping it would give me the new Command upgrade that some here have gotten (with the Bluetooth streaming, fixed POI's-where it doesn't give you a random City location, better graphics, A/C display on the bottom of the screen, Nav Map graphics upgrade, etc.), and after them saying that they were uploading new software for 2 hours (which I know they did, because apparently it crashed right before it was complete the first time, and I had to leave the car overnight), I see absolutely no changes to my Command. Did I give them the wrong code for what I seeked?

Don't know where they're located *on the vehicle* but you can get it from the "datacard" available at startekinfo.You can sign up for free (for the first year IIRC) and once signed up you can get all sorts of interesting,useful,info about *your* vehicle (including your engine number) by entering your VIN number.

Recall 2011110002 – MY11 212 diesel fuel filter may develop leaks approximately 6,784 vehicles affected. Owners should receive a letter or have dealer check VMI to check if VIN is included.

LI46.20-P-049852 – 207 all, 212 except 4matic honking/squeaking noise when steering in both directions mainly occurs when warm. Radial shaft sealing ring to steering system will be replaced.

LI83.00-P-051420 – 212 up to VIN 1A411562 & 218 up to 1A004916 whistling or humming noise. If the noise disappears when opening a window, the problem is caused by the drain grommets of the sliding roof hose @ left & right rear.

LI88.20-P-052891 - 212 rear bumper sticks out in area of rear lamp. Bumper experiences thermal expansion mounting rails (fender area) cannot sufficiently hold the bumper in place. If bumper is not equipped with additional latch, it should be replaced. Note since JAN11 bumpers are equipped with additional retaining tab.

Oh crap! I have a 2011 E350 and on one side, the bumper protrudes (it has protruded since day 1 I bought the car). My car has a build date of 7/11. Does this mean it doesn't fall under this bulletin?
