Question about 1995 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

1 Answer

Rear Shocks ?

I recently purchased a used 1995 S 500 2 door coup. The car has 109,000 miles and overall is in great condition. (1 previous owner) The rear shocks are definitely shot. When driving the car, the rear bounces and a squeeking noise can be heard. I now understand the shocks need to be repaired at 100k or so due to the heavy weight of this vehicle. I'm learning this is a huge job due to a special "Oil suspension" of some sort. Can you give me an estimate of the average price to repair this? Is there a way to repair the shocks a cheaper way? (possibly not getting involved w/ the oil/water suspension)

Thanks

Rear wheel bearings


Get a different shop to check all of the suspension components - if the struts both snapped, something is going on that's a much bigger concern than the wheel bearings. Look for bent control arms and other suspension components - check clearances and bushings everywhere in the rear, make sure nothing was installed backwards or forgotten. Struts don't just snap, and bearings should definitely not die every couple thousand miles. Also, have a dealer look at it, to make sure that things are installed properly. It won't be cheap there, but they might notice something that other shops routinely miss. I hate suggesting that ANYONE go to a dealership for service, but in this case, they're the most likely to notice something out of spec...

To much gas going thru the exhaust. probably the #2 miss fire. Before you change plugs, make sure you have fire to cylinder #2. You could have a bad coil or ignition module. Also check the condition of the plug wire. You can change these if you like , but it may not be necessary.

Rear window defrost likely damaged and not working now


Unfortunately they cannot be repaired the circuit is intergrated with the window removing aftermarket tint would not damage the filliment inside the window so chances are you did not damage it. there should be a plug-in at the base of the window behind the panel check to see if the contacts are corodid and the wires are in good condition. if there is no visible corrosion or damged then you need to purchase a new one.... please rate this.

Swaying


Before you upgrade parts like a rear sway, how many miles on the vehicle?
Have the shocks and struts ever been replaced?
What is the condition of the existing sway bar bushings?

If these parts haven't been replaced recently, I would start there. You can also upgrade these parts with better components then stock (like gas shocks, upgrade bushings etc).

Also air pressure in your tires. Just being a couple of pounds off can effect the handling of a vehicle, same goes for condition of the tires, and even what brand of tire you use.
