    I have been to McSmarts in the past and i must add that Sam is reliable and honest also probably easier to deal with due to mercedes having so many departments and staff to explain the faults to but i don't have the time to travel at short notice.

    Squib damaged or not centred. Fixing screw locks squib in centre position when steering wheel is correctly removed. This is too often ignored and end result is trouble and tears.

    The angle sensor may need recalibration on STAR or more likely the angle sensor is broken or fitted on the wrong revolution.

    Scott Russell & the guys at Eldrick Garage in Fauldhouses near Livingston will be able to sort this for you at a fraction of the cost of Mercedes.

    "ONLY" 840... The turbo pipe leak part of that accounts for about 40-60.
    So you're spending circa 800 on a new wheel. Instead of about 50 on a replacement angle sensor and hour of labour to swap it...


    Yeah - that's a bargain!
