Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Replacing The Crankshaft Double Pulley

After a incident in the garage, I had the idea that the crank pulley had a slight wobble. As these pulleys are known to separate (after a long period), I didnt feel comfortable with the car and made the decision to get this replaced.

Off course, its not a cheap item to replace, as this is an AMG specific item (2 belts running of the crank pulley, 1 for the accessory belt (6 ribs) and 1 for the supercharger (8 ribs)).

I went to Mercedes specialist Ralph Eidams in Brunssum where they were able to replace it within the hour, keeping down costs on labour. Even though it probably wasn’t necessary, I ultimately did it for peace of mind. I also let them replace the front main axle seal (krukaskeerring).

Swapping out the VW Golf MK3 GTI Crankshaft Position Sensor

My car was cutting out when the engine was hot. RPM gauge dropped to zero instantly & engine cuts out immediateley. Scanning the car with vagcom / VCDS showed an error with the G28 sensor aka Crankshaft Position sensor. Other names are Engine Speed sensor and in Dutch BDP sensor or krukaspositie sensor.

I followed this video guide, which helped me tremendously, so thank you Thomas EXOVCDS. Took me about an hour on axle stands, so not that bad.
