    What has happened to me is the outside door handle sticks slightly & doesn't go back in properly. Bit of silicon spray on the plastic handle did the trick.

    I remember years ago watching my dad hitting opposite sides of the drum with two hammers simultaneously, to get the drum off. It worked for him.

    It looks like it joins about halfway along. I should imagine it would be very tight & probably locktighted.

    Hi Paul,
    looking at the top picture, it looks like the main body is made in two pieces.
    There are flats for spanners in two places. Does it just unscrew?
    Just a thought.

    Hi Paul

    Sounds like a wiring insulation fault at the door hinge where the wires go from the body to the door, probably chaffed through at some point.
    good luck

    When did it have an oil change? Maybe a clogged oil filter might cause this. Simple & fairly cheap job to do. Just a thought.

    Never heard of it, but that's not to say it isn't any good.

    The only thing I noticed is that it's made to MB229.3 not MB229.5.

    What difference this makes, I've not got a scooby.

    I thought about the powerflex bushes, but thought the original mount was good enough for 100+K miles, so didn't bother.
    Do you think the additional mount was worthwhile? pros/cons?

    Don't think this can happen as it's a pre-engaged starter, therefore the motor windings don't get any power until the bendix is engaged.

    The thing that is puzzling me is the car cutting out & then the starter doesn't work?
    It's like the ECU has been switched off. Is there a main relay that has to be on for everything to work?

    I don't think this car has these relays as it has a SAM unit not the older ZEE.

    A failed or failing CPS wouldn't stop the car from turning over from my experience, it just stops it firing up.
