Description

Informed by the garage that the top-end of the engine is shot. This is too expensive for me to repair, so I’m selling for spares as a whole car.

Good Points;

New MOT last month.
New ‘Goodyear tyres’ fitted last month.
New rear discs and pads fitted last month.
New rear brake calliper fitted last month.
Factory fitted 19" Alloys refurbished this year. (Now dark grey).
New front locking hubs fitted a few months ago by Ssangyong.
New Track-rod ends fitted last month. (Safety recall) by Ssangyong.
New removable tow bar fitted this year.
(Never towed only used for rear bike carrier)
New viscose coupling and fan this year
New ancillary/fan belt plus spare belt.
Genuine milage (60,308) with MOT’s to prove.
Some service history with all the books etc.
Recent oil (Castrol Edge) and filter change, also
New fuel filter fitted last week. (All Ssangyong parts).
Full grey leather interior. (In excellent condition)
Stainless steel side bars.
Soft front bull bar. (Very rare)
Reversing sensors.
Rubber boot tray.
All electrics working.
Central locking*
Full size spare wheel.
All tools and jack etc.
Body in excellent condition for year with a few
small marks and scratches.

Bad points;

4 rocker arms broken.
1 glow-plug needs replacing.
* Drivers door actuator sticking.

The car has a private plate at the moment (VW55JOY) which I’ll put
on retention. The number on the photo’s is the original
number plate of the car. I’ll put some updated photo’s of the car
and interior when it comes back from the garage this weekend.

The car won’t start and is sold as a non runner, collection
from Swansea. Car will be back from the garage this weekend.

Cash on collection only.

Please no silly offers wheels and tyres are worth over £600 alone.

Update: 1/12/16

I've just got back from the garage in Swansea today and am told that some rocker arms have snapped off.
The technician says it's very unusual on this Mercedes engine but could happen if some hydraulic lifters have seized. ??

I've asked him not to reassemble the injection system and rocker cover etc. as this will make it easier for the purchaser to identify the problem and save some time in taking apart.

The garage has tested the injectors and found them to be all ok but number one one glow plug is dead.

I've owned the car for 15 months and have changed the oil, filter, fuel filter and air filter twice in this time and only covered 10,000 miles.

Oil used both times was Castrol Edge Turbo and all filters were genuine Ssangyong, so I'm at a loss of how this damage has occurred.
