    W222 headlight and coding fund

    Just to further clarify, I have my old unit which is in perfect working order except the plastic front lens. As such, I can swap over all of the control modules connected to the unit. My main worry is ending up with a light I cannot use just because the sticker has veen removed with the LED...

    W222 headlight and coding fund

    Hiya The two parts are identical (same part numbers). as such, I would expect the ballast to simply come off my existing unit (which works perfectly and is simply suffering with a cracked lens), and go onto the new identical unit. The fact that the ballast does what you suggest above is fine...

    W222 headlight and coding fund

    Hey guys I have recently alas hit a deer with my car which cracked my headlight lens. Such is life. I have purchased one recently from Ebay and the LED code for coding the lamp is not there to my horror (and was removed since the ad images). In this instance, I am refitting my existing...

    Question to w222 S Class with pan roof owners

    Hey Raspy sorry for long wait for reply - thanks for the feedback - I did read similar for the c classes but I am not sure that his extends to the S class. since the above post I managed to test drive another s class from my local dealer and to be fair it was similar to mine so I concluded...

    Question to w222 S Class with pan roof owners

    To be fair it is more nuanced than that, the sound is not significant and joy at high speeds and does not sound like it is coming from the roof itself - more the top of the doors. the issue is that the car is so quiet it may be exaggerating what is normal sound at higher speeds. j

    W222 - Internet conntected but cant use browser error 503

    Hi all I wonder if I am the only one suffering this. My car is a 66 plate S350 and connects to Internet via my Samsung s9+. The Internet connects the car fine via Bluetooth or USB, and in both cases the very few Internet apps (ie weather and radio) work fine. However, if I try to use the...

    Distronic weirdness - W212 E350 CGi (2010)

    Hey Cowley, ahhh the good old days of warranty repairs! To be fair I think mine had a replacement control unit and main sensor (the one behind the grille) back when it was still under warranty but that was some time ago. The rest of the system (blind spot assist etc) all stays working fine...

    Distronic weirdness - W212 E350 CGi (2010)

    Hiya - no they are not - and moreover they are regularly erratic in where they occur (I live n the Westcountry, so there are no real sources that could reasonably explain them, and they also occur in places where they have not occurred in the past). Also, as an aside, mine is a very early W212...
