    HOW TO: W211 Door Mirror

    Hi BlackC180, It is most likely that the little spring clip ( first photo on page 1 of this thread posted by druk - at the end of the screw driver) is stuck down. Release the spring clip so it will catch the mirror cover when you push it back in and that should fix the problem. David.

    HOW TO: W211 Door Mirror

    Hi all, I have a similar problem on my 03' W211. It is the driver side mirror. The entry/ambient light is not working. I have checked the bulb and it is ok. Everything else work. There is kind of voltage across the bulb terminal. Should the voltage be 12v? It is kind of between 6-10v...

    Shock Absorbers Knocking

    I have taken my car to another two inds and they both said the fittings are done up tight properly. All other linkages and ok. That leaves the only problem would be faulty shock absorbers. How should I go about getting it sorted? I may have to get MB to test it first. It would be ok if they...

    Burglar Alarms

    I have installed a wireless system last year and it hasn't given any fault alarms. It is a Visonic Powermax+. The older version of siren requires an external power source, but the latest model uses battery with standby of upto 5 years and makes it even easier. Installation is very simple. It...

    Brake Pipe Replacement

    Hi all, I thought the pipes come preformed and in steel but actually they are copper pipes and may be in a coil. The total for all the pipes and connectors for the rears (both left and right) come to £65. So hopefully the labour to fit them is not too expensive:eek: Anybody has any idea of...

    w210 stalling / die's after a few miles

    When that happened to mine, it was the fuel pump cutting out. I also believe that a faulty knock sensor will stop the supply of fuel.

    Who has to take their car to work?

    My daily round trip is about 90 miles. I need to get to the office by 08:00 in the morning. The journey takes between 1 hour and 90 minutes each way. To use the public transport, it means leaving the house 30mins earlier as it takes that long to get to the train station on the bus. It takes...

    Shock Absorbers Knocking

    Hi all, Took my car to my usual garage last Friday. Even before they took the shock absorber, they could feel that there were loads of movement on all of them. Closer examination revealed that there were an extra cylindrical metal tube inserted between the bushes. The tube stopped...

    Engin oil

    Hi Grober, Mine is a 98' W210. The point I was trying to make was that I normally put a litre of oil in when the Low Oil Level message comes on. But this occassion the garage put in two litres of oil before the warning light comes on. I have checked the oil level and sure enough it was on...

    Hi Grober, All parts were sourced from MB dealer. Antiroll bar bushers are ok and no broken springs. The shocks were replaced by one of the local BMW/Merc specialist. I think I will run it for a week and then go to the dealer and see what they suggest. This is the first time I use...

    Manifold gasket

    It sounds like one of my manifold gaskets is leaking. It is a big job? The gaskets are cheap - less than £10 for the set. Could this be a diy job?

    Shock Absorbers Knocking

    Hi all, Just wonder if anybody here has some ideas to my problem. I had all shocks (MB) replaced on my 98' W210 last Friday. All of them now seem to make a knocking noise when going through potholes. I made the garage who replaced them to double check that all fixing are tight. They are...
