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? More here https://vanos-bmw.com/product/om642-intake-manifold-runner-connecting-rods-mercedes-diesel-3-0l-v6
Tell me, please, how best to proceed.
