90K service

I am planning next week to do the 90k service:
- replace front rotors, brake pads, and brake pad sensors
- re-pack front +rear wheel bearings with 28gr of grease (each)
- replace rear brake pads
- drain and fill brake fluid
- replace the hood pad
- replace cabin air filter
- drain and refill differential
Is there something that I left out? (I did changed oil, oil filter and air filter this week - also @ 78K I replaced glow plugs, front belt, engine and transmission mounts). Thanks, PAT

What kind of car Pat? If it's a W201, it does not have a cabin dust filter.

When was the last time the coolant was swapped? Also, you do know about the special procedures for the 722.6 tranny?

S'up with the glow plugs on the 606 engine? Jeez, ours didn't make 50,000 kilometers. It was glow plug troubles that made my wife ditch the car. She got tired of it running like crap.

I LOVED driving the car. Torque!

The coolant was drained and refilled last October. This January the dealer did drained and refilled the transmission oil.
My glow plugs lasted for 78,000 miles - at which time just one went bad - but I replaced them all including the manifold gasket and o-rings.
Do I need to replace the suspension bushings now or later?

The front suspension bushings on the W210 are not very good, but sometimes they last a long time. They are very failure prone when larger wheel-tire set-ups are used.

Don't replace them before they wear. Waste of $$ in my opinion.
