I'm sure you've resolved by now, but just wanted to let you know you aren't alone. 57,000 miles replacing my motor $8,100.

My 2017 B250 is out of warranty by 7 months and 2,000 miles and the dealer says it needs a new motor (electric machine) with an estimate of over $20,000. Where did you get it done for 8K?

So I posted that after speaking with the rep at MB House of Imports, in Brea, I think. The rep was mistaken, and I never got a quote to replace the motor. I had to replace the dc converter which cost $7,000. The issue with mine is the whine that the motor makes. I was told I had to replace the motor and she quote me about $8,100, but that was for the converter not the motor.
It has had the noise for years. I've had the car 4 years, and I never really noticed it until they brought it up, now it seems to be getting worse, or maybe I'm just paying more attention to it. :-). I'm taking it to QCCharge outside of SD. There is a link in another post. They were nice, seemed to know just what the issue was (worn out bearings) and quoted me $4,250 to fix it. They are the only place I can find. Found no place in L.A. willing to work on it.

Just dropped car off at QC Charge in Vista, Ca. to fix whine in motor. I have never seen so many B250's in one place (9 I think). License plates from Tennessee, Georgia, Ontario Canada. Along with a ton of Teslas and Rav 4's. These guys know what they are doing. Super friendly, helpful, explained and showed examples of motors and problems. Totally enlightening. No secrets, no guesses as to what the problems are, they seem to know it all. HIGHLY recommend. Will post again when I get it back. Hopefully no more 'whine'.

Is yours blue?!? Because I just dropped off my blue BED today at QCC as well. As I was leaving, someone in another blue BED drove up with bearing noise - I guess it was you! We could start a support group.
These poor BEDs are dropping like flies.

Yeah I think I counted 8 or so as well, and yours would make 9. I spoke with Alex at length. My stuttering from zero mph symptoms are absolutely related to leaking seals and fluid getting into the motor. Will need a rebuild. My BED only has 35,900 miles on it. They're so busy, that the wait time is currently 4 weeks to even get my car up on the rack.
