    W204 Rear Light Burnout

    So after fitting the new rear bulb mounts it turns out you do need to use the original brown earth as the canbus needs an earth signal. I tried with a seperate earth wire but had no rear lights. I did crimp and then solder the connections to ensure the best connection possible so hopefully that...

    What Have You Done To Your Merc Today?

    Fixed the rear light earth wire burning out issue on my W204 (both sides) and discovered the tail light and brake light use the same single filament bulb. I guess its a lower voltage on the lights then the full 12v for the brake light. Either that or i have a bigger problem :oops:😆

    C Class regen

    I've been using Tesco fuel and not had a problem with it. Used it in the Citroen before and that did 230,000 miles before i scrapped it (it was totally worn out but engine still strong)and no problem with that either. BUT i do understand the use of decent fuel as i can feel a slight difference...

    C Class regen

    Thanks for the replies. I'd never felt it before with the Merc but i guess that was because of the mileage i did before the lockdown.

    C Class regen

    Morning all, Just a question about the regen process on my C220 W204. Pulled up into the car park this morning and noticed vapour coming off the wet rear window. The rear window heater wasn't switched on by me and switch light wasn't on either. The car felt as as though it was missing a beat...

    W221 S320 CDI Engine vibration won't rev

    Sounds like you are as lucky as I am when something goes wrong. 1 step forward and 2 steps back!! :wallbash: if its one bank of cylinders not working then perhaps you disturbed an electrical connection when doing the pump?? Sorry i can't help any more than that. I'm fairly new to Mercedes myself...

    W221 S320 CDI Engine vibration won't rev

    Just a guess, seeing as you have just sorted a fuel leak and it was, i assume, OK before, but it sounds like you may have air in the fuel system. Not sure if Mercedes self bleed or if you need to do it manually. My previous Citroen had a hand operated pump near the filter to pump fuel through...

    An Informative Read ...

    On my previous Citroen the auto wipers would turn the headlights on if it wiped 5 times in 30secs. My C class does roughly the same.

    Wheeler Dealers

    i like wheeler dealers and Ed China (but not to keen on Mike) BUT i find it very annoying when he uses a screwdriver to do up jubilee clips. Use a 7mm socket and do it up properly!!
