I've been trying to help a friend with a w204 c220cdi solve an engine surging/erratic revs issue and need some help.
I've read the codes using a star diagnostic system which has turned up the following:
P019315 the rail pressure sensor has a short circuit to positive
P026946 teach-in of...
Having replaced both rear air springs with Bilstein, one of them has failed and I've been sent a replacement under warranty.
However, it seems the stud underneath the car that locates the top of the air spring appears to have sheared off completely.
Anybody else experienced this and have any...
Hi, does anybody know if the side skirts on the W211 are the same on the saloon and the estate?
Had a bit of a jack stand incident and need to get a replacement for my estate and can only find saloons breaking in the same colour
Thanks in advance.
My om648 car has developed a habit of cutting out when pulling away from traffic lights. In normal driving conditions it's fine, and pulls like normal. The car always restarts straight away.
CEL has come on and my OBD2 reader is giving me codes p0251 and p0256
Changed the fuel filter for an...
I noticed the Foxwell NT415 seems to be able to bleed the brakes on cars with SBC, so I thought I better check whether anybody has any experience with one, and whether it actually works?
At the same time, does anybody know whether the icarsoft mbII can do a brake bleed on SBC cars?
My w211 is stuck in Park with 3 malfunctions showing on the display, "Visit workshop, service brake", "ESP defective" and "ABS defective"
I can unlock the shifter using the over ride switch and then the car drives fine and the brakes work without any problem.
I've changed the brake switch...

My 53 plate w211 (Om648, 722.626) has suddenly refused to move anywhere. Was absolutely fine on Tuesday, no transmission noises, clunks, slipping or any other hints, but Wednesday it moved forward just enough to get out of a parking space then refused to go any further.
Engine is running...
As per the title, I have a single 15 hole alloy wheel for sale.
There are no cracks or buckles, and the tyre on it holds air perfectly. It could do with a refurb as it looks a bit ratty, but its serviceable.
The tyre is worn on both sides, but has legal tread in the centre. Might still be...

My w124 has lost its 5th gear, and the cruise control has also stopped working (Not bothered by the cruise control, but they may be connected).
I've removed the micro switch from the gear shifter and it appears to be working. Continuity tests ok between the 2 pins, and continuity breaks when...
My wonderful neighbour has been having a loft conversion done this week, which has involved a section of fibre glass flat roof.
This morning I noticed my w124 is liberally coated with spots with what i assume is the resin used with the fibre glass matting.
Front and rear screens, bonnet and...
Originally from a W140 S600, and was fitted to my w124. It is a genuine MB item.
It's dark gray, but doesn't look wildly out of place in leiu of the same wheel in black leather. Comes with matching gray airbag.
It will need a contact ring which can be swapped over from your existing wheel.
This will fit saloons and estates, but not coupes/cabs.
It's a full drivers seat, with the memory module, wiring loom, and door switch. All in working order.
I can include heated mushroom leather upholstery for it as well if required, though this does have some wear/small hole on the bolster...
I had these refurbed by "The Wheel Specialist" in October (Powder coated standard MB silver) and then found a set of proper w124 spec AMG wheels so these have sat in boxes ever since.
The refurb cost £280, and the receipt will be included.
Looking for £350 plus shipping.
No tyres or centre...
I've bought a pair of the multi contour seats from ebay (I miss the same function thats on my w140) and will be collecting them on Friday.
I know I need the central locking pump, tank, and vacuum lines. Is there anything else I'll need to strip form the donor car?
Will the tank be located next...
