This includes replacement of oil, filter, sump gasket, sump bolts (7 Speed Gearboxes), gearbox magnets. Additionally, the torque converter is drained where a drain plug is fitted. Intervals can vary.

- Your Mercedes Digital Service Book will be updated and you will receive a printout that will be stamped and signed by our professionals. All servicing carried out is in accordance with your vehicle’s service schedule and will not invalidate your standard 3 years warranty.
- Wheel alignment (sometimes referred to as tracking or geometry check) involves correcting the tracking and/or camber angles so that they are accurately re-set to the original manufacturer’s specification
- Your vehicle will be serviced using genuine Mercedes and OE parts.
- All of our oils are approved to the Mercedes specification – we are currently using Mobil 1 / Texaco oils. Specification sheets are available upon request.
- Air conditioning systems require maintenance too, over time they may leak the refrigerant gas causing the system to stop working. We can carry out re-gassing, repair and maintenance. If the air conditioning smells when operated, there is likely to be a build-up of bacteria in the vent system / pollen filter – we can run a cleaner through the system if required.
