    W204 rear air vent removal / replacement

    Hi all, My daughter has managed to snap the little lever on the rear air vent (between drivers and passengers seats). Something has snapped (come off) and there's a piece moving around inside. I've been looking for instructions on how to remove the air vent unit so I can see if the piece has...

    New W204 recall ... injector loom / harness

    When I was in my local dealer on Friday for a couple of new tyres, I was told about a new "service campaign" for my s204 that I've had from new. Advised work needs doing ASAP, no mention of risk, only that it relates to either injector loom or harness. Any ideas? This is not the 'other'...

    2012 E Class grill options

    All, MB seem to have two variants of grill ... One with the (large) star in the grill, and a flat badge on the bonnet, and another with the 'standy up' badge (there has to be a better name for it than that?). I'm looking at - 2012 E Class Sport (probably E350), but I don't like the grill (with...

    E Class .. exhausts in rear bumber on which varients?

    Hi all, I popped along to Audi, BMW and MB today to look at the successor to the C250 Sport I've had for 2 years. Aside from being sent to sleep in Audi (although the A7 is a nice looking car) and ignored because I seemingly wasn't Chav enough in BMW (although the wife liked the X6 and 5GT)...

    Summary of new / refreshed MB's over the next 12 / 18 months

    Hi all, Does anyone have a list of any refreshes to the C or E Class lineup over the next 12 / 18 months ? C Class has had a refresh not so long ago, so I expect this to stay for the next 2 years maybe, but E Class has been left behind, and appears to be in need of a facelift to match the C...

    How many gears have I got?

    I have a 59 plate C250 (pre-facelift), and was under the impression that I have 5 manual gears and 6 auto gears. If this is correct, how come the following happens? If I put the car in manual mode, I can manually select 1 thru 5 sequentially. I'm good with this. If I put the car in auto...

    Replacement Windscreen "rippling" effect

    All, Autoglas have replaced my W204 Windscreen a few weeks ago. Almost immeadiately I noticed that whilst looking through the passenger side, the scenery had a "rippling" effect; as if looking through a thin film of water. The result was that the scenary etc was distored whilst driving - the...

    Stunned by dealer comment

    My 2 year old C250 went into the dealer today for a B service, plus some warranty work (drivers door handle has broken, passenger side wing mirror opens with a horrible creaking noise). Seems that there's always something wrong with this car (after the infamous injector problem that caused me...

    Servicing and Warranty at MB

    My car was due a service in some 300 miles on the day that MB magically called me up saying "their records show my car is due for a service". Car duely booked in for Oct 3rd (they're busy), but due to an expected journey, my car is now *overdue* the service according to the ASSYST. Does...

    W204 - auto demist ?

    After multiple journeys up and down the M1 / M25 I've picked up two corking chips in the windscreen .. one in the drivers line of sight, so I need a new windscreen. Contacted AutoGlass (as good as any I expect) who asked a question I've never been asked before .. "does the car have auto...

    "Fixed Price Repair" for brakes. Dealer honours website price.

    Yesterday I popped into my MK MB dealership after my C250 BE kindly advised me that the MD of the dealership needed to go on holiday and needed my cash, sorry, I meant to say that my brakes needed checking. Car has done 28k miles from new, and dealer advised that it needed new front pads and...

    How long does AirCon typically last ?

    I almost never turn my aircon/cc OFF, its on maybe 99% of the time. I much prefer the air "quality" inside the car with the aircon/cc on, it tends to get "stuffy" with it turned off (unless the windows are down of course). So I've done 20k+ miles since new with the aircon on for 99% of that...

    W204 - Tips and tricks

    Is there a "tips and tricks" thread somewhere on here, specifically for the W204, but if not that, then a general one would be fine. Looking for stuff that either is in the owners manual but easy missed, or stuff that's simply not documented. During this hot weather I've been stressing trying...

    Removing a private plate and then selling the car.

    Hello, Not a Benz related question, but someone here is bound to know the answer. I'm going to be selling my fathers car which has a private plate on the vehicle. If I place the private registration on retention, how do I go about getting a "normal" registration mark back on the car ? I know...

    S/W204 - ODB2, 16pin, or 38pin?

    All, I'm looking at getting one of these Bluetooth OBD2 adapters, feeding an Android piece of software (Torque for Android)) for my C250 S204. Reason ? No reason other than out of interest. I've read lots so far, but one thing I've not found out yet is if the OBD2 port on the S/W204 is 16pin...

    Goodyear EfficientGrip tyres

    Folks, I'm in need of a couple of 255x35x18's for the rear of my C250 Sport. Currently have Continental Sport 3's on there ..... have been happy with those, and got 20k on them (first time I've ever hit 20k on any tyres). Ringing around my local tyre dealers I'm struggling to get Conti's ...

    Agility - car's value at end of lease

    All, I'm just 14 months into a 36 month Agility contract. I paid a deposit of some £4k for the car. When I hand the car back, there's a "future guaranteed value". If I want another (MB) car, I'm told I can use (if any) equity in this current car as deposit. Does the Agility plan, try to...

    S204 (C250) ILS stopped working

    All, I guess the only answer here is to pop along to my friendly dealer, but incase I've lost a few IQ points overnight, I want to just check I've not done something silly. Without any obvious incident, my C250's ILS has stopped working. I've checked the most obvious, that the setting is...
