Shops that do Mercedes service A & B

Hey any fellow Mercedes owners know any shops that can do service A & B. Don't really want to bring my car to the stealership if there are other options available. Thanks.

Eddy at Flying Tiger Development.

but honestly, Service A and B are things you can pretty much do in your own garage.

Check your door jams, locks, oil change,tires... etc....

Just do you regular oil change intervals and you will be good for awhile.

A service and B service will still cost you an arm and a leg...if you ask for it.

Thanks and I realize service A & B is pretty much glorified oil changes. However, if I do this myself how can I reset the service thing?

Also, an unrelated question. I've been hearing some faint squeaking noise coming from the front of the car when I pull in and out of my driveway. I think the bushings might need to be replaced, can anyone confirm if the bushings are causing this noise?

what car? what kinda squeek? metal to metal squeek or a rubbery noise squeek?

I started to hear a squeek in my frontend which progressed into a clunck sound and it ended up being a tierod end that was worn.

It's a w208 CLK

Hard to describe the squeaking nose but I think its metal to metal. I only hear it when I'm driving in and out of my driveway and over bumps when I'm going really slow.

btw, resetting your oil change procedure is in your user manual....should be something along

1. turn key to ignition position-1-
2. press and hold the reset button 3x until beep.


but it should be stated in the U/M
