    Airmatic fault code,W220 320CDI 2004.

    Does the car sink overnight, does the pump run and lift the car immediately when the raise car switch is activated. Usually the warning would only come on if it’s detecting a leak. I had the constant error like you mentioned and in the end it was the front strut that needed replacing. Once you...

    W126 300se wont start

    Check to hear if the fuel pump is running when the key is in position 2 as often if not the fuel pump most likely the fuel pump relay fails, if the pump is running the worth looking at the HT leads as these become brittle over the years.

    Mercedes 211-faulty airmatic compressor

    Did the new pump come with a new relay? If not possibly the relay is the issue. If the pump runs the relay would be the next in line.

    W220 2005 S Class 320cdi Airmatic problem.

    I purchased two aftermarket copy front struts off *bay and they’d have been fine ever since, been over 2 years and the drive quality is great, very easy to fit yourself, just make sure both sides of the car is lifted to ensure the struts lift out easily. Get it diagnosed to pinpoint the issue...

    W220 2005 S Class 320cdi Airmatic problem.

    I have a 2001 S320cdi. There are many causes for the air suspension warning message. Does the car sink overnight? Does the car raise and lower when activated? Check the tops of the struts, often the pump will be running to keep the strut filled because of air leaking which may trigger the...

    C270 lack of power and no kick down - EPC ???

    I have an S320cdi and when I got the EL POWER CONTROL message, it turned out to be the sensor on my accelerator pedal, after replacing the whole pedal assembly with a used one it solved the problem. But I never got an ESP message, the issue I had was a slow response when I pressed the accelerator.

    W220 Pre Fuses location

    Hello, Just a quick and rather basic question, besides the obvious fuse boxes in the 2001 W220 S320cdi, I have managed to find one of the 2 large Pre Fuses that are linked directly to the main live wire. The one in the boot above the battery compartment mounted on the rear wheel arch under the...

    W208 CLK230K not staying on

    I managed to find an image of the same engine for sale online, am I right in saying A is the camshaft sensor and B is the crankshaft position sensor?

    W208 CLK230K not staying on

    Has anyone replaced a Crankshaft Position Sensor on a 2001 CLK230K, if so where is it located? I looked behind the engine and there about enough room to squeeze a flash light down there, but nothing else so I had no chance of seeing anything.

    W208 CLK230K not staying on

    Thankfully the pump is still working, need to check the CPS. Found a video online on how to check with a multimeter. Also my brake fluid has leaked out so need to find the corroded pipe, not the abs unit as I checked for moisture.

    Mercedes warranty

    Its just a phone call, what do you have to lose. Worst case scenario is they say no, I doubt they will recover the car to a local independant garage but I can see them agreeing to recovery to an MB dealer as its in their favour if they get the job from it.

    W208 CLK230K not staying on

    Crap, its been 2 months and the car is back to where it was, its probably my own mistake of not starting it since I got it going a couple of months back. Can the fuel pump fail in that time? some people mentions of giving it a whack to get it moving. Is there a relay or way of testing it with...

    W220 dead battery

    Strangely enough I have had a high pitched whistle coming out for a few month which I never diagnosed as it would sometimes disappear. Had the AA and myself look at it and the sound was coming from behind the engine closer to the firewall and gearbox area. will definitely remove the alternator...
