    advice please - dead dash

    Thanks. If that one is dead, would that explain the dead dash etc? Just popped the bonnet to look. If the battery is under the filter housing I'll struggle to get to it in my present condition. Perhaps Halfords or a local garage will be able to test it. I didn't want to drive it without indicators.

    advice please - dead dash

    Engine off. Don't know about a 2nd battery. The handbook only mentions the one in the boot! If there was a 2nd one would that be in the boot as well, or engine bay?

    Advice Please....Mercedes or independent?

    We use a MB dealer in San Havier - Murcia region, called Demovil. VERY good service and as they charge local labour rates rather then the Dealer rates we are used to here in the UK - cheap as chips. Ask for Daniel, fluent in English, German & Spanish

    E220cdi 2004 SBC Pump

    Hi Stability. Although I was lucky and it wasn't the SBC, M.B. B'ham were absolutely clear that although I had a full service record (by indie MB specialists) as it wasn't full M.B. I would not be able to get anything "towards" the cost of replacement! I guess it will depend on which dealer you...

    W211 ipod connection

    I faced the same problem with an Audio 20. After considering the Denison or a replacement head unit (cannot afford a command I'm afraid) I went down the "Wired FM Modulator" route. Easy to install and gives me the facility to plug in my Mp3 player or phone to play music through the radio. The...

    W211 E320 2003 Wing mirror Puddle light

    Good idea! I'll give it a go over the weekend! Strangely both sides don't work, but perhaps it's a ring circuit rather than separate circuits? Cheers

    W211 E320 2003 Wing mirror Puddle light

    I've had this car a year and never noticed that the wing mirror puddle lights didn't work. M.B. health check threw up an error message stating open or short circuit for the lights. Checked the bulbs = OK, checked the dash menu showing external lights as "ON" Internal courtesy lights work fine...

    W211 ipod connection

    If you have the early Audio 20 with tape (and 6CD autochanger) there is another option, use a wired FM modulator which gives an AUX input through a "spare" radio channel. I fitted one to my W211 a couple of weeks ago & works perfectly! Can post details if you want. Cheers

    E220cdi 2004 SBC Pump

    1st thing is not to panic. I had the same "Service brake - Visit workshop" warning light on my 2003 E320 (75K) last week. 1st thought was SBC & my heart sank..... MB Birmingham were excellent, did the diagnostic and found a switch fault ! They fixed it & reset the SBC counter + a full health...

    W211 ipod connection

    Depends on which head unit you have. Please can you give a bit more info - perhaps a picture of the unit, then I'm sure someone here can point you in the right direction. Cheer

    Engine flush

    I had it done at 64K service (independent) before filling with Mobil 1 (tears in the eyes at the cost - LOL) - just wanted to be sure I was looking after the engine as best I could. Fairly certain it won't do any harm, but could do some good, so what the heck ?

    Went to MB dealer in Spain - Diagnostics confirmed that cylinder 1 injector had failed (+5) should be a (-) figure. 1 hr Diagnostic + brand new injector + labour + tax = 460 Euros (yes, you read it right) they charge just 35 Euros per hour !!! If only UK dealers were as cheap !!!!! Shame...

    ML270 Engine rough - Urgent please

    Hmm, could be worth a try. I'll pop out and get a bottle in the morning. It's definately a "Knocking" noise, almost like a misfire on a petrol engine, you can feel the vibration through the car and the accelleration power is down. Idle is uneven....

    Ferarri cheating...

    No wishing to detract from the Ferrari question, but for years I have been convinced that Buttons car was being nobbled in favour of Hamilton. Race after race he suffered "technical" faults and they even let his wheel fall off as he exited the pit lane. F1 always smells - but I love it just...
