2006 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Problems
Due to the size and material used on the brakes of these vehicles, the brakes may start to squeak around the 50 percent wear point. The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge of the rotor. Because of this, the rotors are usually replaced when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).
Engine misfires (rough running) and lack of power are commonly caused by ignition coil pack or ignition module faults. Proper diagnoses should isolate the cause and prevent unnecessary replacement of good parts.
2006 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Questions
Car only has 29K miles and Mercedes is telling me this fix this sensor is $1,300! Isn't there some type of federal mandate on this since it is related to the restraint system?
I called the parts store and they have two types. AW32 and AW46. Which do you recommend?
