After years of driving a W210 E320cdi, I'm about to swap to a 2005 model W203 220cdi. One of my favourite points about the 320cdi is the way the things pulls: bags of torque and plenty of get up and go, plus 45mpg on the motorway.
I'm very curious as to whether the 220cdi can (or should) be...
Morning all. Have now scoured t'internet to see if I can find any hint as to the cause of this, but no joy anywhere so far.
If anyone has any bright ideas or experience of a similar problem, all hints and advice would be appreciated.
The central locking on my 2001 E320 estate is playing up. Seems to lock and unlock OK, but when locked the tailgate can be opened with one squeeze of the handle, setting off the alarm.
Is this a problem with the electrics or the lock?
The cruise control on my W210 e320 CDi has started playing up. It will function just fine for a run of 10 or 20 minutes, then it disengages all of it's own accord.

Next time out, chances are...
My W210 E320cdi seems to take ages to warm the cabin on these cold mornings - 15-20 minutes of driving to get it comfortably warm and at least 5-10 minutes to fully clear the screen, even with the heater on full and the fan at full blast.
Is this usual or could there be a fault somewhere?
My W210 estate has developed very noisy front suspension. When the driver's side front wheel drops into a hole, ripple or even just over a hump (say, a speed hump) there's a pronounced nocking noise and a bump that can (just) be felt in the soles of the feet.
Any ideas of a cause? Front coil...
Just picked up the car from BG Griffiths and they did a superb job. One broken coil spring and one corroded one replaced; a faulty injector replaced; 2 new brake hoses and new front suspension bushes. Plus they found a corroded area on the front sub-frame so they cut it out and welded in a new...
