call mb roadside the techs carry batteries with them in the truck and will only charge you dealer cost.in the future.. you can still call the tech at 18002220100 and ask for the tech to install it they should not charge for the service. also you will need your radio code to have tech program it in. in the future you can call mbusa roadside for 3 free services battery jump , flat tire change and fuel if you run out. this is free asl long as you own your benz.

you meant ML owner get those free roadside services ( battery jump, flat tire change, and fuel ) for a total of three times while you own the ML ?
If you sell it to somebody then the buyer will not inherit this free service three more times ?
other than having the tech to reset the radio / CD code etc., do you see any problem if I choose to buy a third party non-MB battery that is stronger with higher cold crank / warm cranking power, and have non-MB technician install it for me ?
anything to tell those non-MB technician to look out for when they remove the old battery and install the new battery , so I don't lose whatever data / settings ?
#42 of 80 Tail Light Replacement
Nov 16, 2005 (7:08 pm)
OK I wasn't paying attention......as I was leaving work today I backed my '02 ML-500 right into the rear bumper of a raised F250 crew cap. Ouch, but the only damage to my car was a broken rear right tail light. I've aleady ordered a new one from www.partstrain.com, but can anyone shed some light on how to remove the old one. When you open the rear hatch there are two plastic screws which I took off, but the tail light doesn't budge. What else is holding it on ? Do you have to remove the rear bumber skin? Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated.
#43 of 80 Brakes and Rotors
Dec 06, 2005 (5:09 pm)
This is my first time on this site. Hopefully, someone out there can help me. I have a 2004 ML500 with 18,000 miles and Mercedes-Benz Manhattan is stating that I must replace the brake pads and rotors for $1,300.00. It seems rather early in the life of the vehicle to be performining such an extensive repair. Any thoughts? Thanks.

has anyone had the pleasure of using or buying extended warranty from continental warranty. my '01 ml 320 has over 77,000 miles on it and they are willing to provide a rather extensive warranty on it for $2598.00. is this a good deal.
please let me know

JUST BOUGHT A ML 32O 2002 WITH 51,000 MILES ON IT. IS THE 2002 MODEL BETTER THAN PREVIOUS YEARS? OR DOES IT HAVE JUST AS MANY PROBLEMS?
#46 of 80 Rebuilt mass air sensors
Dec 17, 2005 (7:03 pm)
Is it okay to buy a remanufactured mass airflow sensor for my 2000 ML320? Autozone has them for $180, the dealer sells them for 330 new and ebay has some for as low as $100. Is there really a difference between new, rebuilt or aftermarket sensors?

Forget the OEM brakes. You do not want the dreaded black dust, poor performance and poor wear of those brakes. Check on line for EBC Green stuff 7000 series pads and aftermarket cross drilled rotors. I got mine from R1 Concepts. Better wear, no dust, far better braking at less than half the cost of Mercedes. I got lazy and had the local Midas shop install them. They are impressed and this shop is now carrying them for ML brake jobs. My out of pocket was $580 for everything
