More Merc Madness , How much was it new in 1991 ?

One of the Merc forums recommended chain grease for mountain bikes to lube them with.  Silicon chain grease perhaps?  

It was a fiver for a toothpaste tube sized amount from Halfords.  I levered mine open a bit and squirted the lot in, hoping it would make a difference.  And that it did!  Must faster and no more juddering!

My blower fuse went the other day

Is the plastic supposed to melt like this? I've never come across these kinds of fuse before

My blower fuse was blowing on the S Class. The motor was trying to seize up. 

I've replaced it with a new one from AutoDoc. Was about £100 for the unit. Mine was supplied in LHD format but you can swap the motor out to the old housing.

Continental fuses are awful. Fiddly to remove, fiddly to insert, and like to blow without looking like they've blown. Maybe the ceramic ones are better, but I doubt it. Even if you buy them from Mercedes they're the plastic type. 

They are all plastic now , i have found ten 8A and ten 25A proper ceramic ones at a local garage though , still need the 16A ones . yep mine just corroded on one end , looked perfect at a glance
