Hmmm. So, after 5 months of trouble free motoring, something finally went wrong on my �£400 Merc.

The kickdown relay is dead, so the nice AA man has done a temporary repair so I can at least srive it.

However, just called a Merc garage to ask how much a new on will be, and they're quoting �£115.12!!!

It's a little plastic black thing ferchristsakes! Anyway, I'm going to hunt round a few scrap yards to see I f I have any better luck.

chris says:

Yup. Mind you, everyone did warn me that parts would be extortionate, so I've only got myself to blame.

What I really want is to find a scrappy with an old merc in that I can get loads of little parts from for not very muchness.

One day, I'll find one!

There's a place in Leeds that does parts for German and Swiss cars at better prices. I think.
