I'll keep an eye on the window switches. The power lock on the drivers door went out a little while back. The part looks expensive and the instructional video I have seen says you have to drill out...

All fixed and running great!

Replaced the tensioner with a new one from Gates. Old one had Mercedes symbol and part number stamped on it (A1122000370), made by Litens with Litens part number 113,...

I'm becoming suspicious of the tensioner, so I am going to swap it out. It isn't easy, but I can hold it with a standard 1/4" socket wrench with one hand so it may be weak. The tensioner pulley looks...

Of course I know what aftermarket means. Yes, I know Gates is a good company, which doesn't mean they make parts that would be recommended here for use in place of genuine Mercedes parts in all...

Thanks! I was going to ask if there was a recommended after market brand, and about gates in particular.

Not Mercedes. I believe it was Bapdic. I threw away the box it came in. It was the same size as the broken one I took off and seems to be working fine. It's hard to see how that could cause the...

That is what I figure, but it's frustrating not knowing what to check. My guess would be AC first then PS since they should put the most load on the belt and the AC has a clutch that kicks in, but...

OK.

Just FYI: I didn't put on the first belt, so I don't know what it was. The belt that just shredded was a Continental ContiTech. I have a new AC Delco belt to try something different than the...

Thank you for that.

4 broke previously and was replaced. It still seems fine (passes the spin test). 7 also passes the spin test. I don't see any wobble in the crank pulley. No noticeable slop in...

1999 ML320 Shredded belt

ML320 with 180K. It shredded a belt about 1000 miles ago and the cause was obvious, since the idler pulley was broken. Replaced the pulley and and it ran fine for 1000 miles. I just did some repairs...

I bought an aftermarket MAF as a test, and it made a substantial difference. For one bright shining moment I was really happy. No noticeable oil leaks, and the engine was running smoother with...

My understanding is the Crossfire was built when Mercedes owned Chrysler and it has the same W163 engine as the ML320 so most part numbers are the same. The MAF for a Crossfire is literally the same...

It is definitely suspect, but it is also definitely a legitimate Bosch part number for a Kia or Hyundai.

It is also definitely a direct fit for the ML320.

Weird all around.

The MAF on the vehicle now came with it from the original owners at 162K. I remembered it had a fresh looking bar code, so it definitely was not 20 years old....

I am pretty sure I need a new MAF. Proved it by cleaning it poorly! I cleaned it with MAF cleaner and ran it before it was dry, thinking the air flow would dry it quickly. Drove my wife to the doctor...

I have not seen a check engine light since I put it back together. I've probably started it 10 times and run it for 40 minutes. I just took out my reader, and due to your power of suggestion, the CEL...

All back together, I've driven it in progressively longer tests for 30-40 minutes, and no sign of any oil leaks yet. Yay!

It is idling a little rough. Not horrible, but enough that I can tell it...

Can Air Intake Tube mounting tab be repaired?

I screwed up and pulled too hard on the air intake when the rear mount tab wasn't fully released and snapped it off. Can that be satisfactorily repaired or did I ruin it? How much stress is on that...

not 100% sure, but seemed to come from that area. Since I don't actually have any oil filter housing gaskets, the oil pressure port seems most likely and is easy enough to go ahead and try. With the...

yup, that is it. I'm replacing it to get rid of an oil leak and I noticed that the center bolt and washer are literally the same part as the transmission drain plug. That made me wonder why it is...

1999 ML320: Where is my oil cooler??

I have a 1999 ML320. I believe WIS says my VIN has a w163 112.

I am systematically going through and replacing gaskets that may be leaking. I've done the valve covers and breather covers, and am...
