I would suggest phoning your nearest Mercedes dealer, rather than using email.

I wouldn't have expected the manual to have diagnosis instructions, but I would expect it to have a parts list and locations for each? If not, I googled your scooter type and found PDF manuals for engine and electrics, so the information is freely available.

Mike - I am not talking about taking a warranty to the dealer. I am taking about the warranty they give you on the pays they fit. The other content of your comment is exactly what I said in my answer.

comment Bumpy ride after brake, strut replacement?
Are you seriously lumping all mechanics in with some who are rude? That's like saying there are no honest lawyers, politicians, or in fact any industry at all. There are some amazing mechanics, some who go the extra mile for no extra reward. Some of whom may be on this site giving free advice and guidance. I know my mechanic has sorted out various things for me that he should have charged for. Simple reason for the edit - it added nothing to the question at all, and in fact could lead to you getting downvotes.

comment Chevy Cruze with a funny sound when applying the brakes. The drums, pads and shoes among other things were replaced
Please describe the noise. 'Funny' doesn't tell us anything. If it is a squeal or a grind then we have a range of questions which cover this off so use the search function first.
