    The original codes were: P0150 O2 Sensor Upstream P0306 Misfire Cylinder 6 Both O2 sensors also replaced. It was on the second visit I was told about the possible blocked cat.

    CLK 320 W208 performance / codes

    I should add that in two weeks time I'm driving down to Lake Como in Italy and would love the car to be in the best shape possible.

    CLK 320 W208 performance / codes

    Hi, So a few months back now I was chasing a gremlin that was causing my car to lose power and then judder heavily at idle. I replaced the MAF, TPS, leads, coils, fuel filter etc to no avail. I visited an independent Merc Specialist twice who charged me an hour labour each time...

    CLK 320 W208. Help greatly needed please.

    Problem has returned :-( Is it possible for the primary cats to get blocked? After using Cataclean the car drove fine for a couple of weeks. Will I do any damage by using another bottle so soon?

    Mercedes CLK W208 chirping noise from dash when on very bumpy road

    Hi, Now that I have my car running well again I thought I'd address an long standing issue that I've ignored. When travelling over a bumpy road I can hear a chirping / squeaking noise from the central dash area. Has anyone experienced something similar and know what it might be...

    Ignition coil

    Hi, The picture below is one of the ignition coils that was removed from my W208 CLK 320 as cylinder 6 was throwing a random misfire code. Coil replaced and issue with the car now sorted, I'm wondering however if the blue residue (presumably oxidisation of the copper) could've caused the...

    ml320 gear box issues...

    Exact same thing happened to me. Suspect it was a lot of short journeys in London. Booted it a few times and problem went away.

    If that doesn't work, buy a £30 code reader from eBay / Amazon and see what the fault codes are

    Clk 430 1999

    I recently had similar problems with my CLK. Firstly, get the codes read. No point guessing. I also now swear by Cataclean and Redex.

    Roof rack for convertible

    This particular model attaches to the top and bottom of the bootlid. Like you I was a little worried about the hooks, however these ones are coated in a soft rubber like material. In order to be 100% sure they would leave a mark I also carefully covered the inside of the hooks with velvet tape.

    Roof rack for convertible

    Although not specifically listed for a convertible, the Saris Superbones 3 bike rack fitted my CLK perfectly. Very sturdy, with built in racket straps and locks. I would definitely recommend it. [/IMG]

    CLK 320 W208. Help greatly needed please.

    Fixed! I'm not quite sure how, but my car is now running better than ever before. It was almost as if there was a clog somewhere in the exhaust and through some spirited driving it got better and better. It wasn't the rear cats as I had those removed, so perhaps its was one of the two...

    W208 new wings

    Tough isn't it. My arches have only just started to go, but it's the only rust on the car so for the time being I can live with it. Ideally I'd like to get mine repaired but I have no idea what that would cost compared to just buying new ones.
