    W208 - Help me identify the limit switch

    Just following up on this for anyone who stumbles across this thread in the future.... The switch I identified in my original post is indeed the Bow Ram Limit Switch which seems to be a fairly common failure point. This is identified in the WIS as S85/15. And should you wish to order a brand...

    W208 - Help me identify the limit switch

    Hi everyone, and happy new year! A few days ago I decided to test the convertible roof on my CLK as I haven't used it for a while. Sure enough it went down fine, but on the way back up it stops at the point where the metal cover should close. Searching on this forum it sounds like my 'bow...

    W208 Convertible roof problem

    Sorry to revive an old thread, but I have the exact same problem/symptoms as Johnson originally posted. I brought down the roof on my CLK a few days ago just to test it was all still fine after the heavy winds. It came down no problem, but on the way back up it gets stuck at the point where...

    W208 Brake Shields

    Could anybody identify the part number for the W208 320 CLK rear Brake Heat Shields? Pictured here (image taken from A1EK, hope he doesn't mind!): I will be replacing all of the brakes shortly and noticed these are all bent up and rusted through so wanted to replace. How easy of a job...

    Anybody fitted a car PC?

    It has many more uses than just as a DVD player or TV. It will replace the outdated COMAND sat nav system, have bluetooth connectivity as a handsfree system, and be able to store all of my music on the hard drive. A tablet or small laptop can do all of these things as well, but the issue is how...

    Anybody fitted a car PC?

    Hi Guys, Has anybody on this forum installed, or ever dabbled with a car PC? I've got most of the gear ready to go in, just missing the screen and a few cables. The only bit that's got me stuck is working out how I can keep the Volume control functionality on my steering wheel. I...

    W208 CLK Head Rest trim removal

    Hi there, Can anybody advise me on how to remove the plastic trim which the front head rests slide into on the seats? I'm changing the colour of my interior and it's much easier to remove trim like this than try and mask it. I can't see any screws, so I imagine it's a case of pulling it...

    W208 CLK convertible with TAN interior!?

    I've never heard of the Designo option. Can somebody school me on it? What kind of additional options were available? I love the Tan leather, definitely my favourite colour interior. I always thought it was ridiculous that the W208 only seemed to come in Grey, Black or Grey/Blue two-tone. Not a...

    W208 CLK convertible with TAN interior!?

    MERCEDES CLK 320 CONVERTABLE 52 PLATE | eBay Not particularly good value for money, and a pretty crappy advert. But what drew me in was what appears to be Tan leather seats! I've never seen Tan leather on a W208 CLK before, was it an option? Or has somebody dyed these themselves? Looks nice...

    W208 H&R Cup Kit

    Approx £500!? Ouch! I'm assuming I wouldn't be able to use the forum 25% discount on these either? Thanks for the pics Lee, sorry to hear about your bad experience! That is quite worrying about hitting the exhaust. I have 16" wheels going on, which should hopefully mean I'm in less danger of...

    W208 H&R Cup Kit

    Fantastic! And I assume it's pretty much the same for the convertible kit? Could you give me a price for the 40749-1 kit? I had a look on eurocarparts website but it's not listed yet. I didn't even realise you guys sold aftermarket parts.

    W208 H&R Cup Kit

    Wow, thanks for the info! It's the Comfort Kit I'm interested in. Interesting though that the only differentiation other than the amount of drop is between hard-top and convertible. The way these kits are advertised elsewhere I was under assumption there were also different kits depending on...

    W208 H&R Cup Kit

    Hoping somebody might be able to offer some advice here... I currently own a facelift W208 CLK 230K, which from searching this forum I'm led to believe weighs about 1345Kg. Once Summer has come to an end and the weather starts getting cold again, I'm hoping to buy a facelift W208 CLK 320...

    Removing sound deadening CLK W208

    Thanks for the advice Andy. I removed the panel with the 3 plastic nuts you mentioned and inspected the underside of the panel, I'm relieved to say there was so no evidence of oil or water damage! The box is encased in plastic so the story could be different underneath that, I guess I'll have...

    Removing sound deadening CLK W208

    Hi guys, So I suffered from the fairly common issue of having the rainwater drain by the windscreen block up, overflow, and absolutely waterlog my front AND rear passenger side carpets. Joy! I've managed to unblock it today so hopefully that shouldn't happen again which is good! I'm...
