First post!



Kroil is the solution you seek. Look for it at specialty hardware dealers. You might find it at a home improvement store.



If you've tried heat, beware, you may have already galled the threads and you might be screwed.



Did they budge at all?

Harsh language!



Failing that, did you try kicking it?



Temper tantrums help, too.

I agree, I've found that the nastiest of stuck bolt can not withstand a good verbal assault. It's just a matter of finding the right combination of foul language to get them to break.

Give some penetrating oil a shot and then the big breaker bar again. Gotta snap that bar and not torque it, if you get my drift. Two man operation here. One holds the torx fitting in the head bolt, and the big guy snaps that breaker bar with a quick motion. Either the bolt comes out or the bolt head snaps off. Good luck.

Bail Out the Burnsie
 
Dude, just call your local M-B dealer and ask to speak to the service department. Or try an M-B specialist....you know, the kind with the white lab coat, surgically clean workshop, and answers to Hans or Harmutt. I'm sure these guys do it everyday and will tell you some simple thing that 'll make you go "Duh-Oh!". Good luck.

Mr. Burns,



Sell it. Buy the wife a nice boring Camry or a Honda Oddity minivan. The 190 was a fake Mercedes to begin with. Sell it to another sucker.......
