    2004 C class bulkhead drains

    What's the preferred method of cleaning the drains, I've pulled out what debris I can, is a carefully aimed hose pipe the way to go or a wire coat hanger or something else?

    2002 C270 power steering pump.

    Morning all, on the drive home from work yesterday an odd noise started, whining going up and down with engine speed. When I get home and have to maneuver the car forward and reverse to get into my parking space it's obvious the power steering has gone. A quick check on line for a new pump...

    S203 interiors

    Dear C Class guru's, can anyone tell me if the S203 2002 interior is the same in the 2005 model. I need a rear seat backrest and I can get a 2005 version, which from the photo's looks exactly the same as my 2002. Cheers John.

    Wildly Optimistic

    The computer based fuel consumption on my C270 cdi. I always fill up to the top and note the mileage which then gets added to a fuel tracking site called fuelly.com . For an example the last fill up the car said 51.7 when it was actually 43.7 is there a hidden menu where you can adjust the...

    C270 estate washers

    My new to me 2002 C270 estate has headlight washers and as it's an estate rear washer, neither of these are working. Am I correct in thinking all three washer pumps are the same? For diagnosis can I swap the working pump/connector with a non working one to see where the issue lies. I strongly...

    Identify the part please.

    As the title says. Newly acquired C270cdi estate, opened bonnet to check fluids and this box of tricks is loose (see photo).

    Sat nav updates

    My recently acquired E320 cdi 2005, does not take the full postcode and on a drive today there were three places where the car thought I was off road. Is updating the Sat nav as simple as obtaining a more up to date dvd or is the upgrade done via the head unit?
