Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, New Radiator Isolators

When working on the CLS55, I bought 2 new rubber isolators for the radiator. The isolators make sure that the radiator is securely mounted and isolates the vibration from the radiator cooling fan whenever it kicks in.

New vs old & broken



Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Damaged Radiator Fan Housing

I accidentally dropped the CLS from my floor jack when I was working on the transmission. I scraped the radiator fan housing and possibly also the crank pulley. Fortunately, the radiator cooling fan is still 100% functional, so no need for replacement now.




Volvo S80 2.4T Rezaw-Plast Plastic Skidplate

When I bought the car, it was missing a skidplate. A skidplate has a number of purposes, like protection, keeping dirt out, but also improving underbody aerodynamics and improving cooling and fuel economy of the car. A car is cooled by pulling air through your radiator (by the flow of lower pressure air under your car), instead of purely relying on high pressure on the front of the car.

I bought this Rezaw-Plast one via Motointegrator.de and it had a very good price (33 euro is a steal!). Fitment is very good, aligns well with the stock mounting holes.
