The list grows . . .

The list has grown to six current owners with the cracked monovalve problem:

‘Connerm’ PeachParts MercedesShop Forum member in northern Virginia.


Jane, Monte Rio, California, who is a personal friend of mine and whose car has been serviced at Mercedes-Benz of Santa Rosa. The monovalve in her car is cracked but is not yet leaking.


Chris, Oberlin, Ohio. Has had the car since September 2011 and has had two cracked monovalves. First was on the car when he bought it; second was purchased as a replacement while visiting in Germany in 2011.


Michael, Lynnwood, Washington. His monovalve, like mine, has been replaced three times. The first two were by an independent mechanic who sourced the part from MB of Lynnwood. The third part was installed by MB of Lynnwood and it is now cracked and leaking. The picture Michael emailed me looks just like mine -- cracked in the same identical place.


‘Zulfiqar’ PeachParts MercedesShop Forum member in Texas.


Jeremy, Santa Rosa, California. Owned since March 2012. Has had four (4) cracked and leaking monovalves: the one in the car when purchased, two new ones from the Classic Center, and one installed by Mercedes-Benz of Santa Rosa (California).
