Mercedes E-class: How a minor AC issue cost me 30,000 rupees to fix

The team at M Star meticulously took the time to remove everything and fix the actuator motors and more importantly fix it correctly.

BHPian cefiljoseph recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

In December, 2023 - 211 was due for its 130k service as indicated by the service meter. I reached home for winter break and gave 211 to M Star for service. They promptly picked the car and took for service.

Apart from the regular oil and filter service there were also some other problems to be fixed.

Acceleration issues were noticed which was attributed to a disconnected intercooler pipe.

AC system fogged the front windshield when driving during morning, evening and rains. Basically rending the car unusable for most part of the day :

M star took it for service on 30th December, 2023 and gave it back on 2nd January, 2024 with these issues corrected.

They promptly updated and asked for approval in each step, sent photos through WhatsApp and delivered the car with a good wash. The service offered is as good as if not better than what dealers offer if not better.

Here's how it looks when the dashboard is removed to fix the actuator motors. Being an old car, this is a particularly hard job because it involves a lot of child parts to be removed and only an experienced team can ensure this happens without breaking stuff. The team at M Star meticulously took the time to remove everything and fix the actuator motors and more importantly fix it correctly. Was happy with this as there were no rattles or squeaks after this.

All this costed 30k after discounts.

All issues were fixed until the new ones came soon
