Has any one had issues with the Balance Shaft on their Mercedes? Filing a complaint with the NHTSA may help get this part recalled if you have.

    Just looked to see if Mercedes posted a Service Bulletin on the balance shaft or any issues with it but nothing posted in my information.

    I understand a service bulletin was posted on 2007. But they are wiggling out of repairs any way they can!
