    Drainage channels on an A209, W164 and W219

    Got a couple of free hours tomorrow and have decided to do a bit of preventive maintenance. Could anyone be so kind as to tell me where the drainage channels on the above cars are located. Just want to ensure they are not blocked. Thanks :cool:

    Great guitarists (with vocals)

    Just got back home after having a blast in my recent car purchase. My Son had his playlist going and we had a chat about great guitarists. Pink Floyd with coming back to life sounded awesome. Not a drivers song till it gets a bit later on in the song but great tune. Now I'm back home this is...

    Mercedes CLK Coupe (209) 2003 onwards window shades

    Custom made Window shade blinds in the box. I had these fitted in my previous car until I sold it and they were very easy to fit in minutes and can be removed just as easy. Instead of tinting your windows these look like they are from a few feet away. I only used them for a short while. Would...

    Some nice cars at Goodwood yesterday 22/9 with some awesome sounding Mercs

    Took a trip to Goodwood yesterday on my bike. Luckily enough there was a bit of track action on with some awesome looking cars. Anyone from yesterday on here? Something I didn't expect to see on the track - big green thing at the back.

    Alternative size tyres for a 55 plus spare wheel question.

    I have 285/30/19 on the rear of my CLS55 and while they are ok I'd like to know if anyone has gone to a 35 profile. Having had the joy of replacing one of the rear wheels (£600) about 18 months ago due to cracks from our wonderful roads in the UK. My thinking is that a 35 would make it less...

    One for ML owners regarding tyre wear

    Both my front tyres are wearing out on the inner edges. It's tracking is spot on and the pressure are ok. I seem to remember my last ML had a similar thing going on. The rears are ok and both have the same wear rate. Am I right in saying it's a characteristic of these cars?

    CLS55 front discs/pads

    I have done a search but no recent posts so hence this one. Anyone had to replace front discs/pads recently? I've had it come up as an advisory on it's MOT. They have a bit of a lip but nothing that seems excessive to me. Just wondering what the going rate is should I decide to get it done now.

    2005 CLS55 number plate light

    I had a message display on the dash that one of my number plate lights isn't working I've just tried replacing the bulb and it's lighting up for about a second then going off again.

    My steering wheel needs a clean

    The steering wheel itself isn't too bad but the part where the controls are for the radio, menu's, etc are caked in crud of some sort - W164 ML. I tried wiping it with warm soapy water using some heavy duty kitchen type towels and all it's done is made it hard to wipe and the towel breaks up and...

    Detachable towing hook (W164)

    My ML500 (164) has the manufacturer/dealer hook up electrics but the detachable towing hook isn't in the car - not that I can see, unless it's hidden somewhere I haven't thought to look. I know it had one in the advert I saw of it so can only presume the last owner took it off before I collected...

    Power steering reservoir o ring

    My ML500 (W164) has been leaving small oil leaks on my driveway. I had in booked in and it's coming from the reservoir and they've quoted to replace that. I didn't go ahead getting it done as I'd previously read up that it's usually the o ring that gives up. Are these easy enough to change and...

    The dreaded lean - ML500 164

    I noticed recently that my ML is lower on the drivers side than the rest of the car. Also when I lock it with the remote it makes a gush of air sound from the drivers side front. I spoke to the place who last serviced it (Monarch) and they said they advised the last owner to change 2 of the...

    Aftermarket reversing camera ML 164

    I did have a quick search but most of them were old posts, hence my new post. I'm looking to get a reversing cam fitted on to the ML 164. I did initially look into one that integrates into the sat nav but there prices I don't think are worth doing. I have read of some that will do the job with...
