DYI auto shop

Any opinion on this venue? You pay $40/hour, lift and tools are provided. Claimed to have data on all makes and models with certified mechanics on site for consultation. This would be great for maintenance work vs lying on your back. Plus they probably have all the proper tools for the trade. https:...

Re: Roof Load Capacity

IMHO, I think the question should be how much load on top could I effectively carry without rolling over in an unexpected turn (usually this is a more realistic scenario)? I am also aware of the 200 kg number but we all know it’s never that clear cut as in 1+1.... It’s like asking our SMEs here what...

Re: Roof Load Capacity

Here’s the CYA statements on p.130 of my owners manual: Roof rack: This vehicle is not intended to carry items on its roof. Thus roof rails and any roof-mounted devices must not be used. So based on my arm chair margin analysis, there is no wrong or right answer here regarding as to how much a load ...

Re: Rear diff oil filler plug in 2010 and up model

Can you share a pic of this tool? It’s nothing special other than a very beefy German 14 mm allen wrench. It was in my tool bag with many other unidentified tools which I will now have the pleasure of figuring out what is what. I put that puppy right in the hole, use some serious rear deltoid muscl...

Rear diff oil filler plug in 2010 and up model

I had a hard time getting the 14 mm bits to work due to poor angle and the tank plate protection was obstructing the hole. The entire tool chest in my garage was useless until I pinged Alan. He suggested to look inside my personal MB provided tools. Sure enough...it was right there staring at me. Pu...

Karl’s shelf

Someone here asked me a while back about this item and the access to the jack. The answer is the top shelf will interfere with the ability to tumble the passenger seat over in order to retrieve the jack. Took me 5 minutes to remove all the bolts and lifted it out of the way. However, it would have b...

Re: Transfer Case fluids question

Thanks Otis and Vadim for their expert advices on what oil to use. As it turns out, it’s probably Mobil 1 Delvac that was inside my TC. Smells exactly like the one I replaced with and has the same consistency. The only problem I encountered was the huge break away torque that was need to remove the ...
