Replaced rear muffler rubber hangers

Ugh, that was a ***** to do! My arms are really sore from trying to stretch the small rubber donuts from one hook to another. I got some cuts and scratches from doing it too. Using a hydraulic jack helps somewhat by pushing the muffler closer to the undercarriage, thus closing the distance between the body hook and the muffler hook. I paid about $6 for these two rubber things. Performance Products has them for $.85 a pice, but I couldn't afford the wait. Needless to say, I got mine at the dealer. The wait for a parts guy was just as frustrating as the installation. And then waiting in line to pay for them was just as bad. I don't know, but it seems like everyone is so stuck up at the dealer.

Anyhow, on another note. I got this digital M-B tire pressure guage. I am amazed at its accuracy. I compared the readings with a mechanical guage, and it pretty much matched up. It was $20 well spent.

Cossie - those donuts are available at any of the "discount" auto parts places. You will just have to take a couple old ones in to make sure you match them up.

When I replaced the exhaust system on my 300E, the guy at Caliber Motors said he'd send me the new style hangers which were supposed to be better than the old round donuts. The new ones appeared to be the same as those used on the catalytic converter and were square/recttangular in shape. They went on easily.

I don't recall what I paid for them but it didn't seem like much.
