Since 1956, informed Mercedes-Benz owners have relied upon The Star, the magazine of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America, for advice about maintenance, service and repair of their cars. This book collects the best of these do-it-yourself articles and tech tips together. Since it's a compilation of articles, it's great for tips, tuning, and for knowing how things were designed or what problems are unique to particular models and how to solve them. Don't expect comprehensive repair for a single model.

Examples of articles collected in the Mercedes-Benz Technical Companion include: Technical and Restoration Forum: questions and answers on subjects such as bleeding brakes, aligning headlights, choosing fuel and preparing a vehicle for storage. Maintenance and preservation procedures – from resetting the service indicator lights to washing and waxing your car. Heating and air-conditioning system repair including rebuilding the automatic climate control push button unit and converting from r-12 to R-13a. Driving tips including the difference between torque and horsepower, and tire selection. You will even find informative diagrams showing oversteer, understeer and vehicle dynamics. Step-by-step instructions on how to replace shock absorbers and air suspension bellows. How to choose a shop for maintaining and repairing your Mercedes-Benz. Fixes for vacuum door locks, mechanical clocks and trip odometers. Extensive model, chassis number, engine number and production year reference charts: 1946-2005. Detailed electronic component repairs, such as the Becker Electronic Grand Prix radio and the W210 E-Class seat control switch.
