    S211 Security Boot Storage Box

    I think this is the part number...Security Boot Storage Box Mercedes E-Class T-Model S211 - 2003-2009 A2118400074 I've had my S211 over 7 years, never used this once. Free to collector, I'm based in Tavistock, West Devon. It's been in various garages during that time, and is a bit musty, just...

    W211 280cdi estate rear shock problem

    Interresting...mine goes down too, sometimes. Sometimes right, sometimes left, sometimes both, sometimes not at all. The pump was renewed a couple of years back, so that's probably OK. the old one was poor enough to give a dash reading and a Star failure code. Once I've had the (very expensive)...

    S211 ABS sensor fault

    Hadn't used the car for a few days. Went to go for a hospital appointment, ABS light on dash, warnings for ABS and ESP in the console. Seemed OK, but once on open road, would not get above 3rd, limited to about 45mph. On leaving the hospital, I quickly discovered I was limited to first! No...

    Uttlery not worth it, then. Will get a pre-primed replacement...*sigh*

    The Joys of Communal Parking...

    Have since discovered the identity of the culprit. An insurance claim on something like this is new to me. Would I risk increased premiums? Does the excess apply? Either would make it uneconomical to claim. The local feds are keen for me to run it through insurance, too. Hmmm...

    Yes, that does work, but doesn't fix the problem...

    S211 2004 Audio 20 phone/bluetooth problem

    Have been using the Visee0 in this car since purchase nearly 5 years ago with absolutely no problems. In that time, I've used a Samsung Note 2, a Nokia Windows phone, and now a Samsung Note 3. Until fairly recently, all has been flawless. But since replacing both batteries, the following...

    If it bolts straight on, great, because they are easier to find!

    S211...looking, but some spares searches return everything for E class, usually for facelift ofr even w212. Annoying, but I'll get there. Meanwhile, 3-inch silver gaffer tape holding it all together and is even quite a good match for the paint!

    Hanging's too good for 'em... Checked every towball I can find, no evidence. Rats.

    My thoughts exactly... And no, no-one has owned up. Looks like a towbar job, and there's not many of those here.

    Really didn't need that... (Thread redone after site upgrade!)

    slight juddering

    Don't know if the parts are similar to some w211 models, but there is a thing with cross-contamination of coolant and ATF due to corrosion on the combined radiator. Either that, or the ATF is very old and needs changing, maybe?

    2004 W211 Wing mirror repeater.

    Watching this, got to remove mine soon to fix broken wiring. Did do the nearside one soon after I got mine, and it did come off, but wasn't the simple twist of a large screwdriver that the how-to thread implied...entirely good thread, though, I just cannot rediscover it...

    W211 - does it really need AGM battery?

    My 2004 S211 had an AGM fitted as original. Only in the last few days have I fitted an AGM replacement. The car electronics thank me every day! Seriously, if set up for AGM, the system will slowly kill a wet battery - this why I had to do the change. Got an Enduroline 019 AGM from Tayna, £115...
