    Steering Wheel Buttons

    Hi Does anyone know how to change the steering wheel buttons on a 2007 S class? It seems like the spring/clip is broken as I can push the buttons in quite far but they're not doing anything. If I push the buttons hard enough I end up pushing the horn.

    slight juddering

    Hi! my w221 is juddering slightly when accelerating at certain speeds sometimes. This is between 25-30mph and 55-65mph. It feels like a wheel bearing but the judder feels like from under the car and is worse when there's a full load. Anyone had this problem?

    W221 Rust

    My W221 is rusting on the inner rear wheel arches. I thought these cars were no longer rust buckets? Is this a production fault? There's no damage to those areas and it's only the rear inner arches

    My W221 has developed a loud squeak from the front right wheel. When stationary or driving I can hear the squeak and I can even hear it in the cabin. I've checked the steering fluid and looks ok and there's no tightness in the steering. Just the annoying noise Any ideas?

    I recently changed the door passenger actuator on c270 cdi and now the car wont start. It doesn't crank but ignition switches on. I've checked the battery and it is fine. Changing the actuator meant taking out the door airbag, could this be the issue as the srs light is now showing on the...

    W221 Brakes

    I want to do a brake pad change on my W221. On the front how can I push the piston back? I have a C clamp would that be sufficient? Also as the rears are electric operated would it be more hassle than it's worth and take it to a garage?

    Horrible Scraping Noise

    Hi guys, I have a w221 and every time I start the car and drive whenever I go over a bump I hear a scraping noise from the front end. Once the car reaches 90 degrees and a few miles the noise is no longer there when driving over humps. I'm guessing this is due to some oil or rubber...
