    C55 Estate for sale

    Bump. Just had a viewing lined up but cancelled as the chap's mechanic said these are beset by mechanical and electrical issues and to steer clear. :wallbash: Really?

    C55 Estate for sale

    Update: The running issue was identified as a gunked up throttle body so it now has a new MAF and clean throttle body, and is idling smoothly.

    C55 hesitating/ stalling

    C55 air intake MAF removed and I’m looking for obvious problems. The pipe work looks ok to me but am I missing something?

    C55 Estate for sale

    Some may be aware it's for sale but I thought I'd post it up here too.... Much work done to it - details all in the ad. 46k miles. Japanese import. Currently sorting a running issue with it - have just replaced the MAF with a new Bosch item, but will need further investigation and this will...

    C55 hesitating/ stalling

    So the new Bosch MAF hasn't cured it. If anything it has made it worse. It nearly stalled when trying to get into reverse on my driveway. May try and limp it to local garage to have the fault codes read - although no warning lights coming on.

    C55 hesitating/ stalling

    The MAF is awaiting fitting, having arrived whilst I'm on holiday. Plan to fit it next week and see if that cures it, otherwise I may get the car into Avantgarde to be looked at. I think it is an air issue - whether vaccuum pipes or MAF I'm not sure. Hopefully a simple fix. Famous last words.

    C55 hesitating/ stalling

    What’s involved in replacing the vacuum hoses; is it a garage job or can a ham fisted DIYer do it?

    C55 hesitating/ stalling

    Well I've ordered a Bosch MAF for it at reasonable cost. I hope that cures it, otherwise.... :(

    C55 hesitating/ stalling

    Apologies if posting in wrong section. My C55 has started hesitating and lurching a bit at lower speeds and the idle is a bit erratic at times. I have done a bit of research and ended up removing the MAF and cleaning it, but if anything it hasn't cured it but made the issue more noticeable. Am...

    How to remove / replace the MAF in a W203 - 2004 Petrol

    Thread revival. I've searched online to not much avail, so can anyone guide me as to where the MAF and Throttle Body are on a C55? And how to access/ remove them for cleaning? I've had a slightly lumpy idle for a while; yesterday the revs dropped off whilst heading into a corner and it stalled...

    Well priced or a bit OTT? C55

    Regrettably with redundancy looming, yes. Currently we have four cars and I can’t justify that in the current circumstances.

    Flickering Xenons. C55 AMG

    I wonder whether there’s a voltage issue with some of these. Could an aging battery cause them to flicker? On mine I changed the bulbs a couple of weeks ago and it’s not done it since, but will keep an eye on it.
