Sailquick, thanks for your input on the splines. I was looking up the green Loctite information, wow! it takes 500f/260C to break it loose!

Only reason I can think of to pull the front yoke out would be to replace the output shaft seal or rebuild transfer case. Hopefully neither need to be done for years to come.

I was not familiar with the Green Loctite, here is a link.

Is this service bulletin limited to any specific model years?

I find it interesting that Mercedes is using Loctite green vs Loctite 660 which is designed for this purpose.

I am guessing MB recommending use of the Loctite 660 would not "look good" admitting a potentially bigger problem with quality of fit.

From Loctite web site

Loctite 660 used for:

Retaining Compound - high strength. Gap filling. For repair of worn-out seats, keys, splines, bearings or tapers without remachining.

Also may be more permanent of a repair in terms of dis-assembly and quick setting making it hard to use.

I'm curious if this happened every time, most times or sometimes? I have a similar clunk but it seems to be intermittent and I imagine if I brought in to the shop it would be when it didn't do it. Though if there is a bulletin about I imagine they would need to address it?
