Default Common Maintenance Work Procedure Thread Link List

Hi,

In the short time I've had my sprinter I managed to go through every post in the T1N section and what I have done is to creat a Word document that has hyperlinks to all of the various threads that I have found useful. It includes the standard maintainence threads as well as a bunch of other useful threads. I find it very useful and fast for looking things up.

So, here it is -

Serpentine belt replacement only, this is a better thread:

And here is an excellent thread about problems caused by T1N rear wheel ABS sensors and rings.

I'm searching right now but this thread needs a link to an alternator replacement thread........

This thread looks like it describes the job.

http://sprinter-source.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26087

I gotta do it so may add some pics to that thread.

Awesome resources. Is there a thread anywhere with a write up on pulling the engine? I haven't had any luck searching.

Thanks,
Casey

[EDIT HKP] Not really common maintenance. See http://www.mercedes.gen.in/mercedes-...gine-swap-t1n/
