    461 Repairs

    Hi there, it sounds like the time and effort will be worth it. What is the Merc spec for replacing the timing chain on these motors?

    Dead Speedo

    Good luck Freek. Keep the smoke inside. I’d found a decent VDO instruments service company in Johannesburg but your issue sounds electric and not mechanical. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Rear spring replacement

    Thanks JJ Apparently, it’s not a performance or safety issue, just aesthetic so I’ll simply wait to order in January. No epic trips planned between now and Feb so I should be ok. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Rear spring replacement

    Thanks JJ, I was at the agents this morning. They don’t have any and Germany is closed until the 14th of January. (Probably not the whole of Germany, just the bit that deals with spares for the G) Good news is they do sell them individually if you only need one seeing as theyre quite pricey...

    Rear spring replacement

    Hi, I noticed my G leaning toward the left at the rear. Closer inspection revealed the top coils have collapsed on each other,I can’t see that they’re broken but they are squashed together. I know that these springs do break after a couple of hundred thousand Km I’m looking for a replacement...

    Hot air in cabin fix

    Nicely done Alan. I simply thought that hot air on the feet was a feature of all G’s. Luckily my 290 seems to be able to blow cold air on my feet, but unless I have the aircon on, my side vents blow hot. Do you think the heater valve could be a cause of that as well?

    EPC no longer available from 14 / 12 / 2018

    I’ve seen the new system in operation at the dealers. Doesn’t seem to be as friendly, the guys struggle with it and it’s pretty slow to load. I can only assume it had some features that make it better than the EPC. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Gelandewagen Brake Discs

    Hi Riaan, Not sure for the Prof but the older 461 takes ATE pads from Rivonia Spares at around R700, including the sensor. The disks are cheapest from the agents- around R1500 for the two. Hopefully yours are as cheap and easy to get hold of.

    What AUX Battery do you use

    Hi Sed, It works well. Keeps an Engel running on 5 (max cold) for more than a day. I think it’s designed to work perfectly with their solar panels and be continuously recharged. Where it shines is that it has a built in pure sine wave inverter so running a laptop is very doable and of course...

    Tyre Compressors

    Hi Gerhard, I have one like that. It’s mounted under my rear bench (less dust). I’ve used it on two G’s so eight tyres from one bar back to 2.4 without issue. For the price it works for me. Just make sure to get the 160l/min if you get the 72l/min we’ll all be waiting while you’re still...

    Media launch of new G63

    Thanks Alan. It sounds like it was a great launch. I read a very positive article already out on Wheels24. Thank you to everyone that could participate for flying the G flag high. Looking forward to photos and opinions from those that were lucky enough to be there. Sent from my iPhone...

    CV Shaft

    Hi Rob, Guido from offroad-world.com has a kit for sale, a few of us have dealt with him in the past. Great service and OEM parts. Going straight the dealers with your vin number would be the quickest though https://www.offroad-world.com/Mercedes-G-universal-joint-W460-W461
