We had the rear right tire blow out on the motorway on our way towards Sanandare. What a nightmare! We were stuck on the side of the motorway for over 4 hours. Trying to get my European breakdown people to understand the situation was the worst. Then they couldn't lift the van high enough when they arrived! Any way - we got it changed and we drove on and off at the next big place we found which was Laredo. The entire tread came off and wrapped itself around the axle. In the process it has broken the floor of the LPG tank cupboard, but it is not anything needs fixing immediately. It also ripped the drain tap and the feed pipe off the fresh water tank, so we can no longer carry fresh water. I have checked the whole underside and it seems that the wheel arch and all about it took a hard beating, but all is intact. Brakes lines are fine and fluid levels are not an issue. Breaks work well. But there is a very loud break squeak which we did not have before, and also from somewhere on the van, a very loud squeak at low speeds which we did not have before. I want the whole everything checked by an expert. I need a good mechanic who can work on a Mercedes 1990 208D chassis, and a large sized garage. There is nothing in Laredo. Can anyone help me find a place close by (Santander can't be more than half an hour away from here, Id even go there) where I can have the wheel/breaks/suspension checked out ASAP????? It was awful!!!! I'll write a thread about it later. It will help be de-brief! I have never had an experience like it, but thanks to the fine fello whose name I forget on this board who posted a video recently on what to in if you have a blow out!!!!!!!! (THANK YOU!!!!!!) I knew what to do, I floored it!!!! It worked.
