    Specialist Southwest Devon and Cornwall

    Any recommendations for an independent specialist in Devon/Cornwall. 2001 CLK320 petrol. Engine is not picking up well on throttle too well and does not run up to top speed. Last garage in Exeter that looked at it and said it was the plugs. Then after changing about 6 (£521) later, and no...

    Reversing on an incline - Problems

    Garage charged £25 for new seal/plug, so I presume that is not the problem.

    Changing Radio/tape to Radio/CD on a w208

    Is Audio 10 the standard Merc unit? Is it best to get one about the same year? Any hints on how to remove from the console?

    Nice Designo CL500

    That's a fair premium of at least £1k for a very nice looking limited edition over the going rate for Cl500's on Ebay at the moment. They are really great value for a top spec car if you can keep them running OK.

    Reversing on an incline - Problems

    Yes, I guess the gearbox is worth looking after. After that the rev adjustment? Could it be that a dirty MAF sensor can slow the revs down enough to make the gearbox holding on an incline become a problem? No idea on the traction control. No warning messages saying it isn't working. How else...

    Reversing on an incline - Problems

    Garage say transmission fluid low (and dirty) so could do with a change (probably never done). However their automatic transmission specialist say that is not likely to be cause of the creep on relatively steep slopes. One strange part of the problem is reversing up a steep slope when the...

    New member with a CLK320

    Strange on the 225's. I have checked many times and should be 245/40's on the rear and 225/45's on the front. Mine has the original 17in AMG's Other tyres I think affect gearing and rev counter. On a different note, how much does MAF cost to change?

    Reversing on an incline - Problems

    My CLK has just started the auto gearbox creep on inclines in reverse. Where do you check the fluid level? The handbook says it is a dealer job and shows nothing? I guess the extra 25rpm will help, how do you adjust that?

    New Tyres blistering

    Is it just one tyre or both? I had the same a front Mich Primacy HP. Turned out it was the AMG rim, not the tyre. Had a hairline crack which was enough to run out of true. If it is on one side only could be the probelm.

    Cracked AMG rim on a 2001 CLK 320. 225/45/17 I have had welded up (only 1 inch crack) but is rumbling and so I think is slightly out of true. Could just about afford one or two, does not matter if lighlty scuffed. Any available please let me know. Jason 07970 458899

    CLK 230 cabriolet hood stopped working

    Still giving it a bit of help with a push when opening the hood. Still working fine a year later. No change and have not bothered to get it sorted at a garage as would probably cost almost as much as I paid for the car. My partner sometimes get a problem, but it is always the same thing: the...
