My '00 300m has just about ticked over 100k miles (160k km) and I'm
going to want to replace something that is causing a clunking sound that
seems to be coming from the back wheel area.
I've already replaced the front sway-bar bushings (twice) and link arms
(once) and that's about the only suspension work the car has seen so
What are the typical rear-end suspension parts that commonly replaced at
10 years / 100k miles?
Also - how often should the wheel bearings get greased or repacked?
Haven't touched mine.
PS: Still running on the factory battery. Almost 11.5 years old now.
It's been a brutally long and cold winter, but it does spend the nights
in a garage (with a small heater going). Other than putting the battery
on a charger overnight about once a week for the past 2 months, it still
turns the engine over just fine.
