190E's Critical Suspension Failure
When I bought my 190E 4 years ago I never thought I'd be riding in a tow truck with my car mortally wounded being me. Well, tonight, on my way home in the pouring rain that is April in Vancouver I felt something give in the right front suspension, pulled my car to a stop, and watched my spring roll down the side of the road in front of me.
Naturally my first thought was "this'll make a great story for the forum!".
I'll be printing the "after" picture to take to the Service Department to see what they can do, and for what large fraction of the car's value they can do it for. Then I'll visit the Sales Department for a new car.
Any thoughts from the experts? Cut and weld on new part? Tow it to the junk yard?
