    Partial heated rear window

    The heated rear window de-mister on my car has never worked properly, the top 4 rows never seem to do anything even though the rest of the window clears. I'm guessing that there's a break somewhere that is stopping current getting to those elements so I'm wondering if it is possible to get them...

    Removing suction marks from glass

    I have always used Auoglym Car Glass Polish and finish off with a microfibre cloth.

    Brake hold doesn't like a particular hill

    I do have quite big feet 😄 however it is definitely not that as this would be happening at places other than that particular spot.

    Brake hold doesn't like a particular hill

    I don't think that is the case as I replaced the main battery in June 22 and the car has only done just over 5,000 miles since then, also the stop/start works fine.

    Brake hold doesn't like a particular hill

    There's a junction that I drive through once a week or so and it's got a decent gradient, maybe 15 degrees or so as a rough estimate. It's quite a busy 4 way junction and most times I get caught at a red light there and I'll be facing up the hill at the time. For some reason the auto-hold/brake...

    Extending sun visor

    I've seen videos of owners of other cars who are able to extend their sun visors after moving them away from their stowed position. I quite often move mine to the side and think it would be helpful if it was extendable but don't want to damage it if it's not designed to do that, can anyone...

    Removing suction marks from glass

    I've owned my C class for 4 years and in all that time I've never been able to remove the many and varied suction marks from the interior glass. There are some on the windscreen and also on the sliding panoramic sunroof, I imagine most if not all are from dealers sales signage boards. Can anyone...

    Boot liner for a 2018 C220d

    For some reason the floor mat of my boot almost always looks messy even though I hardly ever put anything in there. As this annoys me whenever I go to get a shopping bag out of there I have decided it might be worthwhile getting a boot liner. I've done the usual searches and as expected reviews...

    Sunroof rain sensor

    I'm pretty sure that I have read somewhere that if the sunroof is open and rain is detected on the windscreen then the car would automatically close the sunroof, does that only apply if the sunroof is fully open or should it also work if it's in the ventilation position?

    Mercedes Me app connectivity

    I'm a bit confused about how the Mercedes Me app communicates with my car so I thought I would come here and ask the experts. Up until recently I assumed the car communicated with the app via wi-fi or the USB cable when plugged in to the system, however last week I started parking in an...

    Another start-stop question

    Just one last question from me on this subject, how much of an impact does the stop/start function have on fuel economy?

    Another start-stop question

    On a similar note the stop/start on my used 2018 W205 worked for a couple of months after I bought it but hasn’t worked since. I’ve used a CTEK charger on the battery once or twice to top it up during lockdown but never to recondition it. My question however is regarding whether leaving the...

    What is it?

    This is the part that I'm referring to, I'm hoping that the camera being there won't be impeding its function but as I don't know what its function is then I can't be sure! Edit* I've just had a thought, isn't it some sort of distance indicator related to reversing? Edit 2* And I've now...

    What is it?

    While fitting a rear-view dash cam I noticed a black plastic fitting (which is about 4 or 5 inches long) in the roof of the interior above the rear seat headrests in my 2018 model C220, it's not something that I've taken any notice of before. I've tried to find out what it is or what it does but...

    Map updates W212 MY2016

    Very informative and helpful, thanks for that MJ. With regards to the PIN the dealership had insisted that if I wanted the free update then I had to book the car in when I did as the 3 year warranty ran out on that day. They told me that they had to book in the hours with MB in order to do the...

    Map updates W212 MY2016

    Rather than start yet another map update thread I'm going to hijack this one instead ;) My C220d was in for a service last week and I asked them to do the final free map update. When I collected the car they said that my system is in two parts and they only had the operating system update to...

    Comand Online AfterMarket CarPlay and Android Auto System

    Carplay system Hi everyone, I'm considering buying the unit shown in the link above and having it fitted in my 2018 model C220d but before I do I was wondering if anyone here has purchased it? If so what are your thoughts on it, was it money well spent, would you recommend it?

    Latest Ntg 4.5 map updates

    How can I find out which version of NTG is in my car? I would like to have Apple car play rather than using the installed software but I suspect that won't be possible.

    Battery charger recommendation

    This might be a stupid follow-up question but as the warning messages mention the starter battery does it need to be charged separately, indeed can that be done? If so where is it located?
