    What’s this part for?

    2005 CLK, Talking about the white plastic thing behind the battery, it was hanging loose when I removed the battery cover. I could see it had lugs on it so I put it in the hole and gave it a twist and it locked into place. But what is it? Anyone have a clue? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    CLK dash vent disaster!

    2004 CLK320 Well not really a disaster but a bit of a ****-up! A while back when we had all those really hot days the central air vent control became sticky to the touch and you could leave marks/ridges with your nails on the surface. It wouldn’t shift no matter what I tried and finally used a...

    Do you drive a black Mercedes?

    Do you drive a black Mercedes? Did you have a heated conversation with a middle aged woman and her frail 92 year old mother in Brooklands M&S car park last week? Did you shout at the woman and say she was trying to con you and that you hadn’t reversed into the front of her parked car? Did you...

    CLK320 - having trouble moving auto gear stick/selector

    2004 CLK320 94,000miles Over the last few days I’ve noticed that moving the gear selector into drive was becoming more difficult, it’s like there’s something blocking the lever. Auto gearbox oil level is correct and it moves out of park with no problem. Any ideas? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Odd noise, what can it be?

    CLK320 2004 (94,000 miles) Oil display shows correct level. Service due in 3,000 miles. Its not there on a cold start up but starts very soon after. Increasing with more revs and seems to be coming from top left of the engine. Should I be worried and should I be driving it? Thanks

    On reflection

    Not a bad reflection of the sky/clouds considering I haven't even started to clay/cut/polish/wax it yet! Just washed it with an old bottle of AG 'body shampoo and conditioner' that I found in the garage!

    Worried/confused about gearbox noise

    I have had my 2004 CLK320 for about three weeks and on the test drive the automatic transmission made no noise and had very smooth gear changes and kick down. On about week two I noticed a feint speed related rubbing/chaffing sound coming from the gear stick/selector when slowing down and...

    Damaged bumper, bugger!

    So in under three weeks of ownership of my 2004 CLK this morning I managed to reverse into a parked car as I was backing off my driveway. Totally my fault as there is never anything parked opposite and I didn't look. I was moving really slow and there was no damage to the other car but I was...

    What do you use on this trim?

    Just got my 2004 CLK320 and I was just polishing the windscreen (as you do) and noticed the trim around it looked dull and oxidised, is there anything I can use to bring it back to looking nice again? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
