Hey all you techies...
The belt under the hood is beginning to squeal in the a.m. when I first fire it up. I live on the west coast where it's foggy in the morning with temps in the mid-50s. It takes a couple of minutes with the engine running before it stops squealing.

In my wife's '92 190-E 2.3 we were told that the belt tensioner unit needed to be replaced ($400!). We were told that the tensioner is an "automatic" one, no adjustments... Am I facing the same thing on my 300E or is there an adjustment that can be done to increase tension on the belt?

T'anks men and women of MB-dom.
