It WAS the cause of a rough idle in my case.

Steve B. diagnosed it for me, after I tried to fix all the "regular" suspects...

You are new to the forum...

He is the man when it comes to MB's, along with other pro mechanics contributing to this forum.
You can check the DIY section on top of this page or check this out:

Before you change anything, get it diagnosed or be prepared to pay some $$$.

Good luck!
