    w211 sbc C2498 error code

    When the brushes or pump start to show signs of wear the system picks up that it is taking too long to reach the correct pressure and will warn you of such. If it is just the number of cycles counter then it will allow you to reset it and carry on as normal, as the pump is working fine. The...

    When viewing a car...

    Is it that difficult to ask the seller what the registration number is amongst any other questions you may have? I am more than happy to let a potential buyer know so that they can carry out an mot check.

    W220 airmatic issue

    MB designed the system to have a self-cleaning filter by releasing the pressure back through the filter and blowing out any trapped dirt. But I think it doesn't work that way as my filter was an absolute mess and a new one is cheap and easy to replace. It could be that your control block is...

    Drivers headrest temperamental

    The headrest motor soldered connections have cracked. Fairly common issue and easily fixed if you can use a soldering iron. The cable running to the motor inside the seat pulls on the soldered connections and eventually they crack and cause intermittent failure. Here is a link to how to...

    yet another watch thread.........

    I am a fan of the Junghans Mega Solar range. I had a titanium one that was perfect for me but gifted it to my son when I was moving to the USA as it didn't pick up the American time signal. Its replacement is the Junghans Force Mega Solar with black ceramic case and strap which has had many...

    Transmission Fluid, Torque Converter or not?

    Maybe they misunderstood. I cannot think of any issues that could be caused by changing the ATF. To me, it sounds like them not wanting to take the extra time to flush out the old oil. Not all cars are fitted with a TC drain. Tony

    Transmission Fluid, Torque Converter or not?

    The transmission and the torque converter are both fed by the same oil supply. The oil left inside the TC will be just as old as the oil drained from the sump. How would you feel if the garage told you they were only going to drain half of your engine oil and then top it back up when doing an...

    Euro-tunnel experiences?

    When I was working in France I used it regularly and never had a problem of note. Just drove on the train in the UK and off again in France 30 minutes later and the reverse upon returning. Most times I never left my car and dozed through the journey. I seem to remember the prices were cheaper...

    Spark plug mix and match

    If you are paying someone else to do the job then ask for the old plugs back. When I bought my C32 it had a receipt for having all 12 plugs renewed not long before I bought it and the seller said it was a trusted mechanic who had worked on all his cars. I found that only the front cylinders had...

    Juddering wiper blades

    If the screen and blades are clean then juddering can be caused by incorrect blade angle. It should be perpendicular to the screen so they flex enough to clear the water on both strokes. If it is not perpendicular when the blade is moving with the acute angle trailing, the blade skips and...
