    W210 abs/esp/bas/headlight fault

    +1 for the earthing fault. Probably rusted enough to break away. Had the same fault on a friend's e320cdi. Once I tried to sort, it snapped off. You can drill a new hole and fit a bolt on somewhere the metal is not that rusty.

    An exploding Mercedes

    Sth like that happened to my e240. The m112 sometimes if used for short journeys can clog the oil way at the back of the engine. Happened to mine and the oil flooded the left bank and forced it into cylinder one. There was so much cloud I lost all three lanes behind me. The result was cleaned...

    Annoying tapping/clicking noise

    Not sure how loud the clicking you mention is but if you can hear it in the cabin, sometimes it could be normal. The steering gromet on the bulkhead could be torn allowing what is normal engine noise appear as a ticking when revs rise in the cabin. Maybe it could sth simple as that.

    W210 Ambient Lighting

    Hi Andy, sorry for not being clear enough. Yes the lights on the doors are on the door handles (to open the door) and indeed the rear footwell lights are fitted at the bottom/back of the front seats.

    W210 Ambient Lighting

    Hi Andy, The lighting is on the mirror, door pulls, both front footwells (under dash) and at the rear seats at the bottom of the base. You could find a scrapped facelift w210 and remove them all with the cables. The hardest would be to sort the door pulls I think. Trust this helps.

    Was it a great guy called Nick? If it was, I know that car very well as it is the same colour as mine. Used to meet up with nick quite a bit, he wanted to see my car after I got it fully resprayed too. I have a cool pic of the two cars side by side.
