Hi, guys. I have: ML 280 CDI Diesel 3.0 L.
The plastic guides of the damper thrust on the right and left manifolds do not function.
There are several options:
1. Buy new collectors with tractions (about - 1200-1500 $)
2. Remove the dampers, plug holes (I read that it is possible)
3. Buy the repair kit for intake manifold runner connecting rods by company Vanos-bmw dot com - 103$.
I was interested in option number 3, it looks attractive, the manufacturer guarantees:
"Replacement of the worn plastic drive to a new aluminum, completely solves the problem,
restores the functioning of the vortex damper system, allows you to save time and money. "
Has anyone had experience installing a repair kit?
Tell me, please, how best to proceed.
