According to my data reference, it calls for 2 hours book time to replace pump. There may be added time due to difficulties (rust, other unforeseen issues). There is also .6 hour for bleed steering system.
I would have to agree with "overbys" There is no repair, unless you here to buy some neoprene rubber and repair it yourself. The cupholder as a whole would have to be replaced.
Not specializing in Mercedes, i would not have any further advise. there is a shop that does mercedes a few doors down.
My system is showing two sensors, appearing on top, or top right side of engine. your issue may not be a coolant sensor issue, you could have a stuck fan relay, or other control system malfunction.
A visual determination would have been made on the leaking struts, As there would be a visual trace running down body of shock/strut. As far as the control arm bushings, we at this shop have seen numerous vehicles that the arm bushings just are worn. They are not a sealed bushing, and any inspecting shop should be able to notate if that issue is present. (if the issue IS present) The dealers use "cheap services" to lure customers for service, due to thats how dealers make money.
You may not be able to. Some of the newer VW/Audi use an ELECTRONIC rear caliper, that requires computer tools to retract piston. If there is a larger black unit on the back of caliper, this computer tool is required.
If the pan could be saved would depend on condition of threads. If plug is stripped, a plug replacement would be all thats needed. An oversize plug may work to recut the threads, but that is seen as a temporary fix. Vehicle may need a new oil pan.
Just based on that little bit of information, I would believe that there is an issue with the "blend door" This is the part that directs air to vent, foot, defrost, etc. If there is an issue, the part is designed to default to defrost (the government felt that comfort should take a back seat to safety, and being able to see out the windshield). Would need to see the vehicle to ascertain the specific part that has failed/malfunctioned.
You may want to try a body shop for these parts/installation. We are recommending Santa Margarita Auto Body (949) 589-2000
