I have 2004 Cardale Thermaglide electric roller garage door, never had a problem until now. Tonight it wouldn't raise past maybe 4 inches and the motor makes a buzzing sound. If I give it a helping hand it moves a few more inches then stops again, once over halfway up it goes itself then, coming...

I've spoke to a few Mercedes owners who when telling me about the features their car has, tell me in a rather excited voice/face - It's got Flappy Paddle Gears ! I then say have you ever used them or do you use them ? Their replay has always been - oh no :confused:
To be honest it's not...
Just browsing used Mercedes, I've noticed a number of cars appear to have built in sat nav but then have - Satellite Navigation Pre Wire (Optional Maps Module Required)
So without the Optional Maps Module, there is no Sat Nav ?
Where are these modules obtained from ?
What do they cost ?
Always amazes me these high mileage young cars
Would love to know who buys them and what problems / things they need to replace over the next 3/4 years once into "normal" 10k miles per year ownership.

I'm always interested in what prices cars are going through the auctions at but there is virtually no information on this on the net.
I've found a site that publishes some prices each month, this months are mainly Mercedes listed.

Just pondering future car purchases, I've had Mercedes for the past 13 years, always slightly older models. My GF had a brand new Vx Zafira and the build quality was poor compared to my older, probably 4/5 times cheaper Mercedes.
I am maybe looking at a car change in the next 12 months or so...
I'm not sure what I've done but when I click my Favourites Tab it just shows - Feeds For UK & Microsoft Feeds.
My Favourites Bar at the top is there but no Favourites Bar folder showing in the Favourites Tab.
If I click the Favourites Tab then Organise Favourites, the box that pops up shows...
I've just done a oil change etc & I can't get the Service Indicator to reset. It's the 3rd one I've done on this car and had no problems previously.
The manual states -
Switch the car on - I've tried engine running & without
Scroll to the Service Spanner - mine says 5 days remaining
I have a Nov 2004 Cardale Thermaglide Roller Shutter, I have a problem with the remotes.
I use 2 remotes, recently both have been intermittent so I thought Id change the batteries but was still the same.
I then thought I'd reprogram both remotes, now one works perfect but the 2nd won't...
When the engine is cold and I'm in Drive or Reverse with my foot on the brake I'm getting a chirping sound as if the belt is slipping.
When the engine is warmed up it's fine.
The belt looks OK, not perished etc
Any idea guys ? Could this be Alternator Clutch Pulley ?
I'm just wondering what peoples thoughts are on manufacturers putting these small eco type engines in big cars . For example Ford have a 1.6 in the Mondeo & 1 Litre in a Focus, Vauxhall a 1.4 in the Insignia, Mercedes putting a 1.6 in a C-Class & probably the E-Class.
These cars are typically...
I'm going to change the Front Brake Pads on my car (see Sig) this weekend.
The car has the Sports Pack brakes fitted with OEM Drilled/Vented Discs.
I've always fitted Textar in the past but GSF have Brembo available, I like the idea of the Textar Epads but are a little dear, prices are below...
I was on the M62 near Leeds with the average speed cameras, I set the cruise control to 50mph, once the cameras was finished, I stuck to about 60mph.
I've had a average of 42 mpg over a 250ish mile journey, Liverpool to Minehead without even trying but never got a pic of that.
Pity i don't get...
I'm on the look out for some Roof Bars & Cycle Carriers for my W203 Saloon, I've got a Wanted Advert in the Classifieds here and also searching Ebay.
