Mercedes Benz ML63 Clicking Noise

Below is a Mercedes Benz ML63 that we looked at recently which had a clicking sound in the left wheel when making a turn of the wheels.

Mercedes-ML63-Roof-Wheels-RamSpeed-1 Mercedes-ML63-Wheels-Lights-RamSpeed-2The vehicle was tested while hot and we identified that the clicking sound occurred when moving the steering gently left and right. We then allowed the ML63 to cool down and noticed the noise was not present. The vehicle was then hoisted up to disassemble the front brakes and wheel hub. It was suspected that the wheel hub bearing needed to be replaced in order to rectify the click.

Mercedes Benz ML63 Vibration Issue

We looked into a Mercedes ML63 recently which had been serviced here before a year ago. It had a vibration going through the body when at 100 to 120 km/hr.

These were balanced as required and we inspected the rear suspension and subframe bushes which were all ok. A final test drive was all ok but the customer was advised to test it and notify us of the condition.

Mercedes Benz ML63 Service, Tyres and Noise Diagnostics

We worked on a Mercedes Benz ML63 which needed a service, tyres and to look into a noise.

The service was done first according to the log book and current km on the vehicle. For the service we replaced the oil and oil filter and checked over the vehicle.

When we finished the service we checked the ML63 for the howling noise from the engine bay when switching the car off. Further testing found the noise was coming from the PCV valve and we replaced the valve and gaskets as required. A test drive showed no issues or noises.

A few days later we replaced the tyres which were on low thread to Pirelli Zero Scorpion 285/35/22 and notified the customer of the wear of the brakes.

Mercedes Benz ML63 Transmission Issue

Once again we have a busy week back from the holidays with a Mercedes Benz ML63 in our workshop to diagnose an issue.

We looked into the transmission which was holding the gears according to the customer. The transmission control module was scanned and no faults were found. The oil level was also checked but was all ok. We then carried out the transmission adaptation procedure as per the diagnostics and test drove the vehicle.
