1996 Mercedes-Benz S320 Problems

Bad Switch/Blower Motor Resistor Assembly May Cause Inoperative Heater Blower Motor

Other than a defective motor, a bad switch or blower motor resistor assembly can cause an inoperative heater blower motor.

Check Belt Tensioner When Replacing Water Pump

A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. When replacing the water pump, the drive belt tensioner should be inspected and most likely replaced as well.

 

Leaks at Compressor, Hose Manifold, or Evaporator Core May Cause Poor AC Performance

A refrigerant leak may develop from one or more of the following AC components: AC compressor, hose manifold for the compressor, or the evaporator core. The loss of refrigerant can cause poor AC performance. Our technicians tell us that proper leak diagnoses should be performed in order to determine the cause of any refrigerant loss.

1996 Mercedes-Benz S320 Reviews

This is the greatest car made! Drives like a dream with plenty of power in every gear. I highly recommend anyone who enjoys high quality cars to find one, they are affordable. Original price- $62,700. A year ago (Oct 2011) I got it for $5,500 out-the-door, and it had 93k miles, that's less than 6k a year! A real dream come true.
S320 is my favorite car. I find it to be the most suitable for me.
