98 C230 Maintenance, Throttle Plate, CD ?

98 C230, just went over 50K. A couple of maintenance questions:

1. Seems like I read in the maintenance info about lubricating the throttle plate or something similar. Is this a critical maintenance step? Where exactly and what lubricant is applied?

2. Related Question: Has anyone been able to obtain the Maintenance CD for the 98 C class, and if so, have you found it illustrative and helpful?

BTW.....still running fine.....oil changes, filter changes and one plug change. A couple of alignments

Car handling at high speed is very, very sensitive to alignment, tire pressure and proper adjustrment of front wheel bearings. High speed stability depends on all of these being spot on. Other than this, it does handle pretty well.

Thanks for any comments on the above two issues....

It probably says something about lubing the throttle linkage, not much to worry about on a 98 111 motor, has 722.6 trans, so no trans throttle valve cable to worry about either.
On earlier throttle linkage cars, when the linkage needs to be removed for repairs, you're supposed to grease it with hi-temp bearing grease inside the sockets. For servicing at maintenance, you're supposed to use ATF on the joints. But on a 98, your getting into electronic accelerator with ME fuel injection and not much is serviceable.
I don't believe MB is selling any service discs yet for the 202 chassis, 126, 124, 201 chassis, that's as new as they're getting right now. I've heard rumors about 140 and 202 becoming available, I wouldn't hold my breath.
Seems like the most critical element for 202 stability is tire quality more than any thing else, just my $.03.
