    Battery tray "filler'?

    I replaced the battery in my w202 about a year back with a smaller sized one. It provides the correct amps etc but is physically smaller. However I have failed my MOT as the battery is not secure as the tray is too big for it. Is there anything I can buy that will fill and secure it?

    Swimming pool in my passenger footwell after car wash! (W202)

    Just brought the car for a wash. One of those ones that sprays water and wax and a huge hair-dryer when it's all done. Anyway, sparkly car at the end of it but there must have been a few litres of water in the footwell on the passenger side when it was done. I could see it dripping down from...

    IR working but no RF. Antenna amplifier problem?

    I'm having a problem where the fob to open the car seems to have very poor range. I need to point it directly into the car. This would indicate the IR is working but not the RF. (I have a smart key that allows RF and IR control). I located the antenna amp. It seems to be getting 12v...
