    Light grind high rattle sound

    I had the same thing on my 2005 CLK, everyone suggested that a plastic clip that holds the hand/foot brake cable had snapped allowing it to hang down and rub on the drive shaft. Very common failure and easy to fix if you can get it up on a ramp. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    W209 Headlamp bulb monkey business

    I know it will hurt your pride but my advice is to go to Halfords and get them to fit it, it’s too cold to be buggering about on the drive at the moment. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Car written off, can I stop insurance?

    How much is enough? I get your point as the car is now not legally allowed on the road therefore it should not have insurance.

    Wife’s 2004 Honda for five years but a Uber taxi driver ran into it (while it was parked!) so it will probably be written off this week. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
