Exclamation Team116 #1 - Chronicle 28/03/2008


So I didn't get the Air con compressor removed today. There's 2 cap screws that are impossible to get wrench in to cause of the chassis / brackets etc.
I'm guessing Mercedes never expected people to remove their A/C compressors?!

Anyway, I did get a brake pad change and oil change done.

Also changed the Drag Link. (when I got my wheel alignment with my new[old] yoko's put on, I was told that it was about 5 drifts away from disaster )

Will be installing my new steering wheel tomorrow and post that too.
Also removing all door trim and exterior trim tomorrow night.

Drag link before:

Drag Link after:

My beasty exhaust

Brake pads, before AND after:

A set of Styria's re-built front calipers (these have been on for about 2 Months now and are GREAT!)

The death of my last dato (only got taken last saturday - I now have NO dato's.. )

The outcome

The Fleet
