Interesting. My 2001 model was ex-Japan and MB here have no record of whether it had any of the recalls done, including this one. I took the photo below of my cam solenoid - is this sort of oiling normal for one that has already had the recall service done?

I also unplugged the black connector in the centre of the photo and looked for traces of oil in it - there seemed to be a little which I cleaned out, so I presume it's possible that more has been tracking down the loom.
