the air box is on the right and the right if you are sitting inside the car passengers side is the right hand side of the car . the plugs are out and i put some solvent into the cylinders to loosen the rings and as i said before there was no sign of water anywhere .I left everything to sit for two days and when i came back to look there was water covering the throttle body by about 1 inch and we had no rain at all so it is a mystery where this came from I put a 24 inch bar on the crank with a 27mm socket and tried to turn it it would no budge it only tightened the bolt a little so I have come to the conculsion it must have been hydrolocked and bent some internal parts . Now i guess i take the head off and see what is under it ,but is there a way to get the chain off without ruining it and are these good motors any way the 3.2 it really is a shame because it is a very pretty car and I have only ever driven the diesel 124 I was looking so forward to testing it for power. thanks for the insight and any more help I wish i could post some pictures of it is there a drop down to show you how to post stuff .thanks again Peter

This happend to a co workers S430. It ran through a puddle that was maybe 6in deep, some water got into the engine and just like that it hydrolocked. Insurance company picked the tab up from that one, what does a new M113 installed at the dealer cost? I think they just did a long block.

These are not trucks, it doesn't take much water for it to get sucked in.

Removing the oil pan is much easier than removing the cylinder head, and a quick inspection should reveal if anything in the bottom end is damaged (it sounds like it is).

I don't understand the point of removing the head, your rods are bent, and your crank may be as well. You should pull the oil pan off and look at the underside, that's where you will NEED to do the work. The top end wouldn't be damaged by water ingestion.

The head has to be removed to get the pistons and rods out.
I would strongly suggest to start with obtaining a good repair manual, like the Mercedes DVD.

Taking the head off is not that hard.
1- remove distributor cap and rotor
2- remove rotor bracket (small torx 5 or 6 mm, use a good socket)
3- remove top front cover
4- remove chain tensioner
5- remove rocker arm brackets
6- remove the bolds from the camshaft gear (chain wheel)
7- take the wheel out.
8- remove the top pin from the plastic chain guide
9- remove all bolds holding the head
10- lift the head.

My post for a 103 head removal, the 104 is slightly different.

Having a manual makes disassembling much easier and is essential if you want to put it together again.
