Just had the front right coil spring crack on my e420 and wanted to
know if anyone else has had this issue and whether this was normal or
a manufacturing defect. In looking at the spring after the MB dealer
completed the repair, there is rust only where the spring seperated
and no where else (spring looks brand new otherwise). Repair bill
(springs have to be replaced in pairs so I was told, as well as front
end alignment) came to $666.00.
Have owned MB for over 15 years and never heard of this.
Your thoughts appreciated. Thankks!
