Hi there thanx for all those folks who posted help on the serpentine belt diagram for the mercedes van MB140...has anyone any idea how to get to the alternator without taking the whole front out of the vehicle..Its a mighty puzzle but even Mercedes dont know ..someone mention removing the left front wheel ? is that crazy or is that how its done? Id appreciate some advice please folks
get the front end aligned by a good shop that does this, they will go with factory specs unless the car is a rebuild from an accident..then they will tell you this..because the specs wont line up..repost findings please..
It's a pretty straight forward job make sure you replace both the inner and outer wheel bearing and also make sure you replace the inner and outter bearing races located inside the brake rotor if you don't know or don't have the correct tools to replace the races then just but a new brake rotor ..it will have the races already pressed in it. Make sure not to over tighten the outter nut that holds the rotor and bearing in place . the best way to tighten it is to tighten it all the way down with a wrench to seat the bearings then loosen it back up till you have play in the rotor and bearing again ... then while spinning the who;e rotor and bearing assembly with one hand turn the nut as tight as you can with your fingures and then install your nut retainer and cotter pin. Spin the whole brake rotor after installing the nut retainer and cotter pin to check for excessive play .You should do the other side also if one failed chances are the other will shortly.
From your description, it sounds as if the lower ball joint is broken. I'm not there to see it, or i would give you an exact diagnosis. Chances are, whatever the issue is, you will be able to repair it yourself.
