Hi,

I was finally able to get this book from Motobooks.com for like $35 + s/h came out to like $40.

From the looks of it....damn good investment. Its meant for all the 200 and 300 series cars and not the 400 and 500 series....only because the engine but there are lots of great info.

Let me list the chapters....its like 270 pages...8.5x14" softcover

1. Engine
2. Engine Maintence
3. Ignition System
4. Spark Plugs
5. Engine Lubrication
6. Engine Cooling System
7. Fuel System
8. Fuel Injection System
9. Exhaust System
10. Clutch.
11. Transmission
12. Gear Change
13. Automatic Transmission
14. Front Suspension
15. Rear Axle
16. Steering Assembly
17. Wheel Alignment
18. Braking System
19. Wheels & Tires
20. The Bodywork
21. Paintwork
22. Heater
23. Electrical System
24. Lighting System
25. Instruments
26. Windscreen Wiper System
27. Vehicle Care
28. Putting the Vehicle on Blocks
29. Special Tools
30. Service Schedule
31. Wiring Diagrams (pull out pages)

I can do a review over the weekend or even more indepth sub-chapters...let me know....I can either post it or email anyone thats interested.

Hopefully I'll be of more use to others and change my status to member

I received the same book about a year ago, ordered it from Preformance Products, I think. its been a good reference book, for me to look things up, making sure I am heading in the right direction. I am glad I got it.

Just my .02. Thanks!

Dap,

There is an electrical section in the back of the book. It contains schematics and such, if that will help.

How comprehensive is the info? I've seen it advertised in the Performance Products catalog before but I disregarded it as a Haynes type "covers it all but not too deeply" manual. Does it tell clearances and torque specs?

Sorry everyone for not keeping track of my own post. The problem is that the Tech Help section is pretty active and the post fall to the second page by the time i get on.


Let me answer a few questions:

1) there isn't any info on diesels :-(

2) the cover says it covers the 230E

I find the book isn't super detailed but its a good starting point on things. It is a "Owners workshop manual".

Plus if the Tech Help forum is awesome too :-)

Hi,

I have found it to be a "General Maintenence" referal book. Enuf to get you going and thinking, but not enuf to get you out of trouble if you get in.

The transmission section only covers fluid change, fairly basic and simple.

I do refer to it for "normal" maintenence questions, but have not found it to be helpful for repairs.

Just my .02. Is the cd version from the dealer better? I have one from "Popular Mechanics", but it sucks, no info you wouldn't get, just by looking at the engine bay.

Thanks for your input.

I bought the body and chassis service manual from Mercedes at 1-800- FOR- MERCEDES. Two books for about sixty bucks. Way more info than I hope I ever need but I have it if I do. I guess I'll buy the engine manual from them also. The CDs are a bit pricey and I hope I don't need all that info.
