    Any R129 Aficionados care to comment please?

    I have loved the R129 since I was a child, one of our neighbours used to work at the Sparshatts dealership in Dartford and got to bring home something different almost every day, more often than not, he'd be in an R129 from the moment they were released. I can recall being wowed by the way it...

    ML320 W63 Rear door 1/4 window removal?

    Can anyone tell me what is holding the upright in place for this little window and how I can remove the glass? (Avoiding the obvious hammer trick) I am trying to remove the 20 year old gangsta tint from my new labour of love, it's so faded and now has a slightly purple hue to it, it simply...

    I had a brilliant idea and bought an ML320, now I need to clean it, many, many times.

    I expect this should go in the Projects section but I am too lowly to be able to post there so we'll start with the cleaning of it and see what happens. I already have a CLK350 Sport and it's perfect(ish) for what I need, my wife has a Mini Clubman S which is less than perfect as 'mum' cars go...

    2009 CLK350 Sport

    I am thinking about selling my CLK350 Sport. I've had it for about 18 months and done a lot to it in that time to bring it up to the level that it is now but my fleet of vehicles is not really fit for purpose at the moment. We currently have this, a Mini Clubman S, my 2013 Mustang and BMW...

    DI resin, where do you buy yours?

    Hi all, The weather has taken a turn for the better in Kent this weekend and of course I was out washing my fleet yesterday. Thinking that I will soon need to do a resin change on my filter, I started to look around for a deal as I typically don't have enough left to refill it completely...

    Squeaking on idle - this pulley has seen better days

    For some time now my car has had a kind of belt squeak when it's idling, of late it has got more and more noticeable and really quite loud. The noise would stop as you started to drive away but return as the engine returned to idle. Yesterday, I had the bonnet up while the car was running and...

    Alarm Siren location help W209 CLK

    Hi everyone, I'm after a little help if possible with a diagram and perhaps even part number for the alarm siren on my 2009 CLK. Since I've owned the car, the siren has never worked although the alarm does quite often trigger itself. I assume that this was a politeness feature so as not to...

    Headlight switch bulb - what is it called or where can I get one?

    Having tried the search and trawled through dozens of "related" posts I'm asking the question now. Can anyone tell me what type of bulb I need to replace the one in my headlight switch please? The only part that doesn't light up is the bit that tells you what the headlight switch is pointing...

    A209 CLK Headlight Upgrade

    Just about the only reservation I had when purchasing my CLK was the fact that that I was going from a car that had factory HID lamps to one with halogen but I convinced myself it would be ok, it's not. The lenses were cloudy so I polished them up and they are much better now. Here's a...

    Front and rear dash cam in CLK cabriolet with pics

    I thought I'd post this up as I wanted to know how well a rear facing dash cam would work in a cabriolet and was struggling to find much info on it. I wasn't sure if it would work or not so I tried it. I'm still not sure if it is really any use but I've not had the opportunity to road test it...

    A209 exterior boot trim removal help please

    On my 2003 CLK Coupé I fitted a reverse camera in the plastic surround next to the number plate light. As I'm going through a stereo replacement in my 20098 cabriolet I thought I'd do the same thing. Had a bit of time this afternoon so I ran the cables through the rubbers into the bottled and...

    CLK 2009 - Remove Comand from cluster

    Having now spent a small fortune on replacing my weirdly failing amplifier and fitting a new head unit+amp etc. I have found this evening that my clock needs to be set. No problem I thought, simply go to the menu, select Time and Date and.... Hang on; where is the menu option? Oh for F...

    Amplifier issue (but not the usual one)

    I have recently returned to the MB fold with my second CLK, this time a 2009 350 Sport. I think I got it for a good price as it has issues but I'm working through them at a reasonable rate and overall am very pleased with my new 'daily donkey'. The main problem and last item to fix on the...

    Not really a new member but I've been away a long time

    Thought I'd pop in and say Hi as I have today returned to the MB fold. Previously I had a 2003 CLK270 CDI which kept me company for 4 years and about 100k miles and after a little more than 4 years I collected a CLK350 Sport Cabriolet this morning. It is a 2009 and very well spec'd but has...

    Headlight washer switch repair

    Afternoon all, I have had an issue with my headlight washers and having replaced the pump, they started to work sporadically until giving up completely only a month later. I traced the issue to the switch and have resolved it this weekend so I thought I'd share a little "how to" on the subject...

    MOT Failure on Headlamp Washers

    Hi All, Something to note is that my W209 CLK failed it's MOT on Friday as the headlamp washers don't work. They never have in the time I have had it and I don't care because I clean it regularly (plus, we have had it on a Star and it's not a simple pump/switch replacement issue). New rules...

    Steering wheel control for Kenwood Head Unit

    I have an Autoleads PC910-X71 for Mercedes Audio 20 >2001. I bought it thinking that I would be able to get a patch lead for my Pioneer unit but I was wrong, it is a discontinued model so I only have the lead that goes to a kenwood unit. They were £100 new, I paid £50 and have had it in...

    Steering Wheel Loan

    Do any of you need a steering wheel? A while back, I wanted to get mine re-trimmed as it was cracked and worn but I couldn't be without it for a couple of weeks so I bought a new-old stock one from a company in Sweden and it is one of the best things I have ever done with the car. If...
