My 2006 SLK 350 was serviced less than a month ago, including a full "inspection". I had some engine mounts replaces and spark plugs, running great. I got a Bluedriver OBD for another car (2000 Land Rover Disco 2 which has the "Three Amigos" problem) and for kicks I plugged the code reader into my SLK today and was surprised to get a P2006. I have no CEL, it seems to have no performance issues. A few years back I had a 2007 SLK 280 that needed a new intake manifold to the tune of $1600 so I really don't want to go through that again- but the 2007 had performance issues and I could tell something just wasn't right. With this car, and so recently at the stealership, I am a little skeptical about the code. Could it be a "false positive"? Should I have someone else try pulling the codes to see if they get something different? Anyone know a good Mercedes mechanic on the Eastern Shore of Maryland or Delmarva area?

I had the reverse, a CEL but no code, and also just a rough start sometimes, no further problems nor power loss.
If the bracket is broken, it depends the position the mechanism is left in.

It is easy to check if the mechanism is (not) moving, just remove the front part of the engine cover.
I went to the Indy afterwards, and the code showed on their diagnostics as well.
