I have oil leaking from the overhead cam solenoid. The oil

This answer was rated:

I have oil leaking from the overhead cam solenoid. The oil runs along the solenoid wires into the tube that covers the wires downwards. This affects the electrics which cause the engine to run very lumpy. I understand that in the USA this is subject to a 'campaign'. Is there an equivalent campaign in the UK?

Hello again Willem -

Thank you for your reply..

Ok I have checked the UK MB databases and do not see any recall for your vehicle in regard to this.

I do also have the direct contact info for you - where you can contact MB recall line direct should you wish, for this or anything at all / now or future that may be helpful for you - and that info is as follows for you :

Mercedes Benz (UK) Ltd. (0 1 9 0 8) 2 4 5 0 0 0 - Ask for recall info dept.

It may be as well for you to double check - they will be able to do a more in depth search with the cars VIN as I mentioned before so be sure to have that if you call them.

Do let me know if you need anything else at all -

Kind Rgds - MIKE.
