    Would an alternative be to select location using the map option in the satnav?

    Is there a simple repair for this?

    Hi all, Does anyone know of a simple repair for when the chrome film has peeled off of the front seat level pull (as in the photo)? Are there any repairers near to the London Borough of Bromley who could repair it? MB wanted to replace the module at over £400 and that seemed a bit excessive.

    Can I reset a powered seat?

    Hi all, My 2012 C class coupe passenger seat back has stopped offering its full range of movement. All the seat functions work but the seat back won't power as far forward as the driver's side anymore. Is there a way to reset/reboot the seat function? Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks Pete

    1) Wait for the TV tube to warm up before seeing a picture 2) TV picture snowing or rolling 3) use the choke in the car when starting it

    Illness and Accidents. Hypochondriacs Corner.

    err....

The car was a lovely Cortina 1600 MK2. The year was 1978 and I was 20. I swerved to miss the...

    Thoughts on Driving Assistance Package. Distronic etc

    Distronic is the best thing since sliced break on long journeys. Far for allowing you to concentrate less I found the opposite, plus I feel a lot less tired at the end of long runs.

    Mobilo life - failure

    Indeed. When I tried this afternoon the message, was in fact more generic and along the lines of "this number is not accepting calls at present". Notwithstanding this, I'm still disappointed that in an emergency I couldn't access the number mb provided. Ah well we live and learn. :dk:
