i live in Lagos Nigeria, west Africa

On an irregular basis when closing the tailgate it will descend approximately two inches then return to its full open position. Upon depressing the closure button a second time the tailgate will properly close. It usually will not repeat this issue immediately following its occurance, but sometimes it can be duplicated numerious times. This has occurred dozens of times. Nothing has been obstructing the doorway. The dealer states the closure sensors are functioning properly. I got it to misbehave at the dealership one time. They are clueless. Does anyone have any experience with this issue?

I repaired the Egr valve in January

On extended trips, over 30 miles, approximately every 50 miles it emits a huge cloud of grey smoke (traffic behind me jams on there breaks). Normally it doesn't use oil, but when this happens it will use 1/2 to 1 quart of oil. Sludging doesn't appear to be the issue. There are no fault lights on the dashboard and it seems to run strong. On occasion I do get an oily smell in the cabin and at a stop light the engine will stumble.

a 2003 ml350 mercedes

My car is ML350 Model 2009.

Has anyone had mercedes cover a part that is not under warranty? my 2004 ml only has 60k on it and I'm told the braking booster is around 700 dollars.. My charcoal shut off valve is an issue now as well.. is it common for these 2 parts to go bad with only 60k

can i clean out the charcoal canister ? Is there any issues in changing one..? do i need any special tools

the bas/esp light on . found out the brake sensor is in the boster for this 04 ml350. understand these go bad alot, but dont know why they moved the sensor from above the brake paddle to inside the booster.. brakes seem to be working fine.

When driving home today, the above lights came on. I was able to get home, but as soon as I turned the car off, it won't come back on. Earlier today the battery light was on. What should I do?

I have a 2005 ML350 that I have had serviced only at Mercedes Dealerships since I purchased it in 2009. I have done every service/maintenance recommended in addition to an alignment, rear brakes and a water pump. When the water pump went out in Sept 2010, I was informed it destructed the belt and the belt tensioner. I had the dealership do the complete repair. Within a few days I noticed a squeaking noise and took the car to the dealership and reported the squeaking. They said they could not duplicate the noise. I took it in several more times for maintenance, etc. and each time they could not duplicate the noise. Last week it got worse so I drove it to the dealership on a Friday evening so they would have it Monday morn. The automobile broke down on the way and I had it towed in. I was informed yesterday that my power steering pump had torn away from the timing case. They also said they had never seen this happen and did not have any idea how it could have happened. I reminded them of the noise I had been having since the water pump repair, but they informed me there was no connection. After careful thought, I have contacted 3 other dealerships and 2 certified Mercedes Technicians. I was informed by every one of them, the only way this could have happened is that my power steering pump was not properly installed back after the water pump was installed, that the power steering pump had to be either moved away or taken off in order to put on the water pump. I informed the dealership of these answers and was told this morning that they did not have to touch my power steering pump and that they were not responsible. Has anyone else run into this problem? They are giving me an estimate of over $4000.00.

Is it practical to replace one side only?
