Call, Call, Call again and keep on it - I've heard nothing for Canada. I'm in the same boat - US and CAN cars are identical.

If it was bought in the us technically it could work, but MB Canada is not fixing these.

Settlement was between nhtsa and mbusa.

Gaskets not included?

Hello to all senior members and new w211 amg owners like me! I sent my e55 to the dealership earlier this week. Recently, it is running with some error codes of lean on fuel trim and one of evap leak, with a CEL. there are gas drops after refill and smell outside the car. Yesterday, the repair manager sent me an email saying the problem is from the tank gaskets which is not included in the extended warrenty?? And he said the CEL is caused by upstream O2 sensors not the fuel system leak. I personally has not pulled out any code about O2 sensors before and the car had an eurocharge tune. I asked why the tank gaskets are not included by the warrenty and he emailed back with an bulletin on January 9th, which there is a note under "which parts are covered" saying gaskets(MY 08-11 only)(attachment). I am little confused now about my next move.
Have had the car for 4 months and ready for a coilover conversion.
Also thanks to the people who helped making the warrenty happen!
Thanks

Sorry if pic is upside down ( my phone always does it)

I took off my seat and saw a small pool of fuel by connector would they consider this under the warrenty?

It only sometimes smells like fuel when it's full not all the time



I sucked out most of it with a turkey baster before I took the pic lol

Mine looked just like that this morning when I took it in. They just called and said it was approved for the warranty repair. In my case, they are replacing the entire fuel tank and senders.

sorry your service center doesn't know what they are talking about. the guided fault tree specifically says remove the fuel tank access openings and see if fuel is smelt or seen to be leaking (from anywhere on the tank). you vmi covers complete tank and components if fuel is leaking. even the document he sent you says
"If during this period
the vehicle experiences a leakage from any of the “Covered Fuel Tank Components” listed above and it is
determined that it is due to a warrantable condition that would have been covered had it occurred during
the original warranty period, this warranty extension will cover the necessary part(s) and labor to repair or
replace the component(s).

its saying ANYTHING on the tank that is leaking that would have been covered under the original factory warranty will justify approval of this new warranty extension. call mbusa or go to another dealer.

these sender units are the now outdated part numbers. unfortuneately dealers have inventory of the old numbers and use them up first before the new numbers.

A211 470 17 94 has been replaced by
A211 470 00 00

A211 470 51 94 has been replaced by
A211 470 64 94 (last i heard backordered till april)

That's good news, so now anyone just with an evap code can have the whole fuel system replaced.

Has a new design for the pump or tank assemblies been developed/manufactured? I still haven't received the letter yet.
