    C200K nearly stalls when braking

    thanks for input. the breather pipe and valve were split and changed before Xmas which cured the erratic idle nicely. This vibration is as though the tick over in drive is too low as it disappears in neutral as the idle increases slightly. Is there any idle adjustment i can do. I cleaned the...

    loss of drive

    Thanks for the input gents and the correct diagnosis, the garage replaced the electrical sensor plate which has cured the drive problem and they have also identified a vacuum pipe leak under the airbox causing the rough running at idle so including them towing the car the bill is about £850...

    auto gearbox display

    Hi Dec, i am on about the dash board display mate. I can use the tiptronic + and - and know how to change between WS and WD modes. On the LCD display behind the steering wheel in the top right hand corner it will display WP in that mode when in park but when put into drive only shows WD ( WR and...

    auto gearbox display

    thanks for reply Dec but that wasn't the question, yes i have a user manual but it doesn't say anything about what the display will show when auto shifting. Mine just shows WD whatever gear it is in then occasionally reverts to tiptronic although showing W2 on display. My other question was...
