    Clk 722.6 gearbox issues

    No warning lamps as yet but will check Pilot plug for leaks as some just replace the O rings on them I read.

    Clk 722.6 gearbox issues

    My 2005 320clk box is occasionally showing issues that reset with the ignition off and on again. I have had times where it doesn't go into top gear and today swimbo said she had no reverse until a second go? It's done nearly 90k miles so my first thought was a gearbox service but on doing some...

    Metal spark plug caps twin plug.

    I Need to find what plugs they are firstly. I have not had the car long hence why I don't know if anyone has already changed them. What's are the change intervals? I've Just changed the crank sensor and plan to do the rocker cover seals at some point as just weeping a bit.

    Metal spark plug caps twin plug.

    Yep that's what I was meaning. Not sure if my plugs have been changed but it's done 89k miles so I need to check their condition.

    Metal spark plug caps twin plug.

    Ok thanks so they are just a very tight fit needing a lever or hard pull action. A cut down opened up cranked 17mm ring spanner should work ok. I was thinking they may be fixed down somehow so didn't want to break anything.

    Metal spark plug caps twin plug.

    Is there a secret to removing the Merc metal plug caps from the plugs?? Mine are very tight so I wondered if there was a tool or technique to getting them off to change the plugs. Thanks

    Clk 320 let me down. Died in traffic

    It was certainly not easy due to access. No space done over the heads as up against the bulkhead plus injection wiring. I removed the Mafia sensor and air inlet plus breather hose then tied back some pipes so I could kneel on top of the engine and reach down with my left hand behind the head to...

    Clk 320 let me down. Died in traffic

    Finally stopped raining and I've found and replaced my crank sensor. My cheap obd reader confirmed it was the CS. What a job as on the Clk the wiring harnesses are in the way.

    Clk 320 let me down. Died in traffic

    I'll have a go myself yes. Done them on other cars. I'll give it a soak in penetrant as I can see the alloy bell housing could corrode it in place. Part about £30 so no need for a £200 bill hopefully. Some say it could be the cam sensor as similar symptoms but if I can read the codes it should...

    Clk 320 let me down. Died in traffic

    Ok great a job for the weekend then once I know which type of new sensors I need. Where will I find the OBD socket on a Clk? I have a OBD reader so worth a try but don't have Star. Nearest garages miles away from me.

    Clk320 cab let me down today in Sunday best. The Car drove ok then I went to move it in the car park and the starter cranked but it wouldn't start? Later it did start so I set off home and it died on me in a traffic queue so very embarrassing having to push it out of the way. Now the engine...

    Clk old Nokia telephone and iPhone option updating?

    Thanks for the offers. Does the cradle fit the uni connector then? We both have later phones but it may be worth a play. Can we swap our SIM cards to iPhones easily so when using the merc we'd have hands free? Are the phones unlocked?

    Clk old Nokia telephone and iPhone option updating?

    I may see if I can get an phone to match the cradle. Nokia still sell a newer version called the 6300 classic but I'm not sure if the Bluetooth would pair as the early 6300 started in the lat 90's? My car is 2005 but not sure what year the phone kit was fitted or if from new?

    Clk old Nokia telephone and iPhone option updating?

    The cradle only has a power socket to charge so how does it transmit the Bluetooth and what receives the signal? Is there a separate receiver in the car or in the head unit? Is there a hidden mic in the car to make its work?
