    R230 SL500 Heater/Aircon control problem - faulty wiring loom connector

    Thanks Richard, I don't recall what the connector looked like unfortunately. MB tell me the car has had it cup-holder replaced, and I also had a bluetooth unit fitted a while ago, for which I gather the dash was removed. So it is possible the connect was damaged at one of those times. Can...

    R230 SL500 Heater/Aircon control problem - faulty wiring loom connector

    The person serving me took me back through to the workshop. Showed me the connector which connected the wiring loom to the back of the heater control, told me it was faulty, but said they cannot be replaced, so the whole loom had to be replaced. Hence the 15-20 hour labour charge...

    R230 SL500 Heater/Aircon control problem - faulty wiring loom connector

    Thanks. I was told categorically that the connectors could not be repaired/replaced, and the whole wiring loom had to be replaced, hence the massive labour cost. Is this not correct then? The loom itself costs less than £100 I gather.

    R230 SL500 Heater/Aircon control problem - faulty wiring loom connector

    Hi all, The heater/airco control unit on my 2007 SL500 stopped working. The air does not heat and the vent direction controls do not work (air comes out of the footwell vents no matter direction is chosen). MB eventually have diagnosed the problem as a faulty connector of the wiring loom that...

    w208 leather seat repair

    Definitely fixable. You need a good trimmer. They should be able to make it look as good as new.

    Hi all, I have bought a replacement steering wheel button/switch for my 2006 R230 SL as the old one was worn. Can someone please tell me how I get the old one off? Does it just pull off?

    2006 SL500 iphone solution?

    Thanks - it looks like integrating the phone is fairly straightforward by installing one of the cradles. However, is there a better way of playing music from the iphone on Comand? I see that MB-3 streams audio to FM, but my experience of FM streaming devices has not been great. I found major...

    2006 SL500 iphone solution?

    Hello all, What is the best way to integrate an S4 iphone (both phone and music) into an R230 2006 SL500? I have just bought my car (having gone SL350 to 335i to SL500) which has telephone pre-wiring. The bluetooth on comand actually detects my phone, which comes up on the screen, but then I...

    2003 W211 E270 CDI autobox disaster - Help!

    Thanks. I am in a bit of rush as far as time is concerned, so the quickest solution is probably to take it to an indy MB specialist. Any suggestions of one in North London?

    2003 W211 E270 CDI autobox disaster - Help!

    Urgent help needed please! The gearbox on our automatic 2003 W211 E270 CDI seems to have died. When I put the car into drive (or reverse), the car drives for a feet or two, and then stops, as if it has popped back into neutral (although the gear lever is still in D (or R)). The engine revs...

    R230 SL350 (2005) being replaced by BMW 335i convertible

    It breaks my heart to say that I am having to sell my 2005 SL350 :( We had a new baby girl 3 months ago and now we tend to drive my wife's car when we go out. The SL is not getting much use and today I took the plung and (forgive me!) bought a BMW 335i convertible (2007). Shock horror, I know...

    Changing from SL350 to CL500 - Advice needed

    I am considering chaning my 2005 SL350 for a 2005 CL500 due to arrival of a new baby and the need for 'occasional' back seat use (probably no more than once a week). I am going to view a CL500 tomorrow. It is a 2005 on an 05 plate with 46K miles, having had 2 services and 9K miles before the...
