Here’s something you don’t see everyday.
This charming behemoth was originally fitted as a mobile communications vehicle. This example is complete with workshop manual written in German, French and Italian, so perhaps for the Swiss market.
This Sprinter will have step-assist running boards that automatically extend and retract when doors are opened or closed.
After pressing in threaded bolt inserts, the steps are installed to the under-frame. Wiring must be run from the step motors up into the cabin interior, then through pillars and doors.
This process normally takes a full day, but this 2019 Sprinter required a day and a half because we had to fabricate custom brackets to allow for the extensive climate control that came from the factory.
Repair or replace? We make informed, cost-conscious recommendations.
While many repair shops are quick to recommend immediate replacement when something goes awry, here at German Formula, we prefer to take a full investigative approach. . . .
