I may have got some of my terminology wrong...I assumed it was IR that was at fault as I had it in my mind that it was IR that operated the central locking and was boosted by the amplifier.
The amplifier by the way has gone back to MB and I've not been charged.
Anybody ever heard of the...
Ok so I have a 2003 SL350 which has a problem that is not uncommon, ie central locking only works if you place the key right next to the infrared sensor on the drivers door. If you step back 1 metre it wont work.
So far the following has been done.
1) New infrared sensor replaced in drivers...
Quick question to see if anybody has had this problem
I've got a 2005 SL350 and the drivers window wont go down when I press the switch. However, the window Auto Up function works correctly, ie when you open the door, the window drops a couple of mm's and jumps back up again when you close the...
Just done this job and following the guide from above which was very useful
Have to say it was a horrible task.
All very easy until the removal of the pipe clips. Very tight access and and once the pipes were off the most difficult part was reattaching the pipes and clips onto the new...
I know Ian and Mike very well...have used them for 16 years. Great guys. Just hoped to try and figure this out myself.
The more I'm searching on compatability, the more i'm realising that its not just a case of finding another 722.6 gearbox and slinging that in.
I bet its the distributor caps and rotors...these earlier 500's are a Bit*ch to start if they have been left standing and even if the caps look ok, for some reason they just seem to suffer if left. Engine will spin over, but won't catch and it seems as if fuel isn't getting to the injectors...
I've got a duff gearbox in a CLK and I'm looking to get a 2nd hand one, but I'm getting confused with Part Numbers and making sure I get the right one.
So my first question and it could be a dumb one.....with a manual box you obviously get different gear ratio's in a manual gearbox in order...
Being in the motor trade and jumping in and out of various motors on a daily basis, I have noticed that a lot of higher performance cars suffer from the same thing at start up, so I suspect its (as has been stated) that its the mapping to deal with high emissions during the warm up period.
Will, I get your point re it being the car you want etc, but the fact that they have been happy to BS you right from the outset, rather than being upfront, does not bode well if the car subsequently has faults/issues.....that's when their BS levels will ratchet up big time.
Yes you have a...
Just a quickie for any of you who have a Twin Turbo.
I've got an original Turbo Technics Document Wallet + Handbooks that came with the Twin Turbo conversions back in the 90's.
I'm happy to sell it. Its in excellent condition and could be a nice edition to add to your Car's History
Quick question for you guys. A relative has asked me to sell a set of old Skool Fondmetal Alloy Wheels for him. I've got a feeling that they may have been on his W123 for a short time, but also have a feeling that they may also fit W126/C126 models.
Any thoughts...fitment size is 7J x 16 ET 21.5
Ok its not a Mercedes, but I need a good SMART Indi in and around Berks/Surrey/Oxon.
I've got a Brabus SMART Roadster that needs some attention and I'm struggling to find an Indi who specialises in SMARTS in my neck of the woods.
