    W203 Headlight plug help! Pic required

    Hi all, On my C32, the previous owner updated the headlights to the later projector type and also changed the original H7 bulbs to an HID kit. Now, I've lived with the HIDs for a while but I've never liked the light output (it's patchy) and would prefer to convert them back to normal H7 bulbs...

    C32 AMG anti roll bar diameter query.

    Hi, I need new ARB bushes on the front of my car and after searching, I thought that the bar should be 22mm thick. I've just measured the one on the car and it's 20mm thick, so has it got the wrong (or a regular W203) anti roll bar in place? Can anyone confirm the thickness it should be...

    C32 AMG rear prop/diff bushes - help req'd!

    Hi, so I have a vibration/shudder at around 70 - 80mph in my car which I can feel through my seat, more than through the steering wheel. After inspection, it appears that the diff mounts are worn and have a bit of play and also the thick rubber bush which sits between the prop and the diff is...

    W203 lower front arm query

    Hi all, I'm in need of a pair of front lower suspension arms for my C32 and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if the arms are the same on all variants of the 203 chassis and my AMG doesn't have uprated arms or something silly? Thanks very much.

    C32 camshaft failure

    So my C32 AMG is sick. It suddenly ran really rough, lost compression and power and it turns out that one of the exhaust lobes on the camshaft has turned out of position. Mercedes want over £900 inc VAT for a new one, which is way more expensive than I thought it might be, or indeed what it...

    C32 strange misfire

    Hi all, My C32 has developed a misfire/rough running in the last few days and it's a bit of a puzzler, as I put the car on to Star at my local dealer (a friend is a tech there) and it showed no misfires at all. I was kind of hoping that it would, so I'd have somewhere to aim for, but it came...

    Wanted - C32 supercharger bearing

    As per the title really, my S/C bearing is making some noise now and wondered if anyone had one lying around they no longer need? I can order one from the US, but thought I'd try my luck on here first :)

    C32 head gasket failure

    Hi guys, my C32 would appear to have head gasket failure :( It is using a bit of coolant and there is yellowy sludge on the inside of the oil cap. So, does anyone know what sort of bill I'm going to be faced with? Like a lot of people, money is tight and I could really do without this, but don't...

    Fit only rear winter tyres?

    As the title, has anyone only fitted rear winter tyres? I understand that the fronts would behave differently regarding grip levels, but I only really need traction on the rear end when it's snowy out and I drive sensibly when the conditions are bad. My main problem is that my cul-de-sac is...

    Need a gear selector module

    Sadly my C32 is showing the symptoms of the electronic selector module dying. It gets stuck in one gear, usually 2nd, and the display on the dash seems to stay on 'R' even though the car is in drive or neutral etc. So, anyone have an idea of the cost of a new one or can it be sent away for...

    Easy to swap W203 door mirror glass?

    As the anti glare liquid in my drivers side mirror has all but drained away, leaving the mirror cloudier than a Scottish summer, I've bitten the bullet and ordered a new replacement from MB. Almost had a seizure when they told me the price, but it had to be done. Anyhow, is the glass easy to...

    C32 AMG seems to be using coolant :(

    As the title, my C32 seems to have developed a bit of a thirst for coolant. I've dug around on here and my scenario seems to be the same as others, no visible leaks and it isn't using loads, but a pint of water in a month (doing maybe 400 miles in that time) is still more than it should use, if...

    Hi all, I have for sale a full set of brand new genuine carpet mats for sale for 203 series C Class. They are labelled up as 'CL203', but I believe they will fit the saloon, estate and coupé models. I bought these from eBay for my C32, but didn't pay enough attention and when they arrived, I...

    K&N filters, worth it?

    Having a poke around the engine bay last night, I opened up the air boxes and the filters are more dirty than I expected. They've done about 5k miles, but the amount of dust and flies was surprising. Anyway, rather than chuck in some standard paper ones, I thought about maybe dropping in a...

    Got my C32 de-catted, nice!

    I'd been looking into getting my car de-catted for a while, to give it a more purposeful sound, as I think the C32s are a bit too understated. So, Saturday afternoon involved a short drive to EMP Performance in Bushey, Herts to have the two secondary cats and the middle silencer removed. I have...

    What is this thing??

    See the pic, it's the black round part in front of the interior light. I've checked the manual and can't find anything in there, and I have no idea what this is/does!! Anyone care to enlighten me please? :)

    Replacing faded parcel shelf?

    As per the title, the rear shelf in my C32 has got that mauve tinge to it from sunlight exposure. Is it something that can be replaced and made to look nice again or do I just live with it?

    Drivers seat/steering column not working!

    Hi, The door controls for the drivers seat and steering column on my C32 have suddenly stopped working. It was all working fine when I left work and when parked up at home I noticed that the steering column didn't raise up when I took the key out, so I turned the ignition back on and the seat...
