turns out pump had gone and need to find 600 notes
i have no car mechanical skills at all and so have choice but to trust garage.
all i know is ouch and car is sold soon as get back - this car has been a money pit bad experience since i bought it and unfortunately (or not) has put me of mb for...
hoping the 2mile trip not done any damage
sounds like a top up to full and short trip i should be ok, slight relief and can do mid-morning when in theory commute traffic has gone so not sitting around for long.
no not 4matic system, and noted for the towing.
car has decided to dump all the power steering fluid all over the drive.
didn't realise issue existed until i steered to go around corners and was a whining grinding noise. car hadn't been used for about 10days so put it down to this.
came back from kids footy and left it.
went out to...
funnily enough, i am sure the outside column of 4 on both mine are shot as never blink when check them - should they?
i took it out and cannot see how to separate the 2parts of the light cluster to see if can replace individual ones or not - so i would say not and yes is a full replacement
every year had her something major has broken; put right off MB for any other car ever; not sure how can be classed a premium brand based on experience, and agree that when working is a plesure to drive
if you can find be appreciated, as really would like to do myself; but as door is now...
good to hear all sorted, my car has been an absolute money pit since bought it unfortunately and another £400 notes is not something can afford either
do you happen on receipt know part number of replacement?
seen a few youtube and mbworld guides and looks possible for a diy jobbie
sorry if late to party.
i had this on my 2009 59 plate
I managed to get to unlock by pressing unlock on keyfob at same time as opening the door / or i did did front & rear at same time - sorry forget which combination and this fix did resolve it for ages.
then today i find the same door...
see a thread i started which seems similar to this old revival
mine was down to motor that moves bolt into and out of the steering column
and that ebay sale is exact thing that was replaced on mine
local garage fixed it, when asked local mb stealer for assistance or guidance, they...
Didn't find those guys but did find these that offer same service:
Mercedes EIS Repair / EZS Module ESL + KEY | SINSPEED
will pop over to garage this arvo and see what they think and...
quick research and looks like commonish fault and needs a new eis and reprogramming which only mb stealer can do
mine is £150hr and no idea on cost of replacement so looks like i need to start harvesting the kidney farm again!
will see what garage says that has the car, but any other thoughts...
not sure if electric or something else, but these are steps on what happened and outcome and wondering on thoughts really.
drove to work - about 25mile of meandering a-road -> NO Issues at all

you can take to an indy
eu warranty states that you can take to any joe bloggs garage and as long as oem parts are used warranty is not affected

also, no harm in taking to an indy and they can scan it on star...
