    E-Class (W210) SRS and Airbag Light

    Our E320 CDI (W210) has developed a problem with the safety system. Without a passenger in the passenger seat, the "AIRBAG OFF" light and SRS light are both illuminated. As soon as someone gets into the passenger seat, both lights go out. When the passenger gets out, both lights come back on...

    W210 E320 CDi MAF + smoking

    My E320 CDi has destroyed a MAF within 1.5 years of replacing it. Ho hum. MB read the fault code out and confirmed my suspicions. They even tried another MAF to see if the situation improved..and it did (revs above 3000 and has low down grunt again). But, even with the new MAF fitted, it's still...

    W210 E320 CDi (MY 2000) Rust - part approval

    Grrrrrr. Just had replacement of O/S/F wing approved (this car has already had N/S/F wing, 4 doors, and tailgate done under warranty). That's great :bannana: but they refused to do the rusting front subframe. How on earth can they refuse that? It can't be due to stonechips because it's well...

    E320 CDI (W210) Air Temp Sensor/Warranty/Recall?

    Just been informed by MB of Eastbourne that they want to change an air temperpature sensor under a service warranty.

    Pulsating dash display : W210 E-Class

    I've noticed the LCD displays on my W210 E-Class (2000 reg facelift) dashboard tend to pulse brightly occasionaly. It's completely random and they flicker much brighter than normal for a millisecond or two and then return to normal brightness. Anybody else ever seen this?

    E320CDi (W210) Glow Plugs And Cruise Control

    Further to my questions in another thread about changing glow plug #6 on an E320 CDi (W210), I've discovered that the cruise control has failed at the same time as the glow plug light coming on after startup. Could these two events be related? Do the two systems share a common fuse or relay? TIA

    E320 CDi (W210) Glow Plug change - near disaster

    I had a near disaster when changing the glow plugs in the E320 CDI (W21) over the weekend. Plugs 1 to 3 came out easily enough (number one was not working at all, number 3 was lazy). Number 4 unscrewed easily enough but couldn't be withdrawn from the hole. A lot of tugging and turning did the...
