    Benz A class 2008

    What e What exactly are you wanting to check? If I am not mistaken, yours is a W169 pre-facelift? If so check for rust around the doors - look behind the rubber door seals and also at the bottom of each door where the metal is folded back and welded. These areas are prone to rusting.

    W245 Transmission Intermittent problem

    The ATF needs to be drained to get to the transmission ECU for repairs. Best to refill with new ATF, filter and rubber gasket upon refit of the ECU. I would recommend getting new AFT from Mercedes as it is very reasonably priced and something that wouldn't be changed for several years/mileage.

    C300h w205 2016 Electrical fire in boot

    You are right Pete, there is no way of knowing. I was suggesting that when buying a replacement battery, it is probably better to buy it from the parts dept of a MB dealership to ensure proper fit (especially if the pricing is competitive) to avoid any future issues. I know I have replaced the...

    The RPM signal is missing, and this could be a break in the wire inside the transmission ECU (a common problem) and ECUtesting.com can repair these type of faults with a lifetime warranty for the W169 at a cost circa £250.

    New Mercedes, dealer servicing or independent??

    According to my indie (who is ex-main MB dealership), the dealership he worked at would perform a B service check in the workshop regardless of the service due/booked because performing the check list from the B service was an opportunity to up-sell to the customer in case the car needs...

    W221 Euro5 or Euro6

    As far as I know, Mercedes produced Euro 5 and Euro 6 togehter as a kind of A/B testing perhaps? When I was looking for a Euro 6 B-Class W246 for my daughter, I noted that some W245 produced in 2015 were Euro 6 while other 2015 were Euro 6. It was really confusing and in the end we made our...
