    Thanks I have used the TDC mark but which zero do I use cause there is a zero mark before TDC and the other zero mark is after the TDC mark. Do I have to lock the 6mm holes that line up in the cam pulley?

If my memory serves me correct-there is a mark on the crankshaft pulley which lines up with the zero mark,take off valve cover and there is two 6mm holes that line up in the cam pulleys,the chain tensioner is down the drivers side of the engine take it out and push it all the way through and put it back in again ,they arent to difficult to do depending on your ability......

How to reset airbag for mercedes benz c220 1994

This can not be reset by conventional methods. This must be done through a scan tool. Usually only the dealer scan tool will communicate with the SRS module. If the SRS light is on you have other issues and they must be remedied before the light will go out. There is no way of knowing what the issue is without running codes with the scan tool.

Does my 94 c220 have a timing belt and when should i change it

Your Benz has a timing chain, not a timing belt. It actually last for a long time. Mine has 160K and I have not changed it. Some people still have it for more than 200K. So I think it is up to the owner. My target is 250K.

Contact the parts store that sold you the timing belt and they should be able to give you the timing settings on your van.

You know if you are going to keep doing major work on your van it would be worth your while to purchase a Chilton's book that is specific for your van.
