    W168 Auto transmission fluid level

    Yeah to be honest I did wonder about that. The trans fluid came out red and oily, not contaminated looking. Cant rule it out though. Coolant tank still appears topped up.

    W168 Auto transmission fluid level

    Just following on from before.... I drained nearly 1.5 litres of fluid out of this transmission tonight to get it to the correct level. Took it for a drive and it's transformed the car. This car has always felt underpowered and I've replaced lots of things to try to sort it. It looks like it was...

    e220 cdi surges on idle

    Bloody chavs

    Just a side note on the locking valve caps. I've heard of the whole valve being ripped out in frustration due to these being fitted.

    Sky+ pros/cons

    I phoned up sky and told them that I wanted to cancel my contract because I keep missing my programming. After a bit of a chat with them they offered me a sky+ system for £60 (if i remember correctly) fitted. A lot cheaper than buying a £200 box. Not sure if they still do this though.

    Help with comand fault code

    Yeah I just went out in the car earlier and it does seem to know the correct speed somehow. Things seem to have got messed up since I had the dash cluster enabled. Tony Purslow told me they wanted 2.5 hours to enable the dash and sort out comand as the steering wheel wasn't working etc. I told...

    Getting Navi enabled on dash cluster.

    Well I went down to Tony Purslows today to get my Dash cluster enabled for my comand retro fit. I printed out the procedures for it from this site and handed them over to the service manager. They were a little confused at first as they had my down for a Garmin sat nav programming?!?. After...

    You should remember this car from the famous TV show

    I would love to own that. I used to have a 1972 Buick Skylark with a 7 litre V8.It was matt black with flames up the front. I had to sell it to buy a house :-(

    Urgent help needed Speed Pulse W210

    Hi thanks for the replys everyone. I found the three lose wires and the green/black wire seems to work fine. It's quite alarming how much of the car you have to take appart to get that reinforcing plastic frame out of the dash. Took about 3 hours in total to fit. Inc running the gps antenna to...

    Aux lead for Comand part number help

    Thanks Richard thats a great help. I will order the pins today. The other plug that came was only a few pennies so all is well. I did think about cutting the wires flyer but I thought that if I ever want to remove the glove box again it might be handy to have the plug there.
