Ok so I have a 2003 SL350 which has a problem that is not uncommon, ie central locking only works if you place the key right next to the infrared sensor on the drivers door. If you step back 1 metre it wont work.
So far the following has been done.
1) New infrared sensor replaced in drivers...
Quick question to see if anybody has had this problem
I've got a 2005 SL350 and the drivers window wont go down when I press the switch. However, the window Auto Up function works correctly, ie when you open the door, the window drops a couple of mm's and jumps back up again when you close the...
I've got a duff gearbox in a CLK and I'm looking to get a 2nd hand one, but I'm getting confused with Part Numbers and making sure I get the right one.
So my first question and it could be a dumb one.....with a manual box you obviously get different gear ratio's in a manual gearbox in order...
Just a quickie for any of you who have a Twin Turbo.
I've got an original Turbo Technics Document Wallet + Handbooks that came with the Twin Turbo conversions back in the 90's.
I'm happy to sell it. Its in excellent condition and could be a nice edition to add to your Car's History
Quick question for you guys. A relative has asked me to sell a set of old Skool Fondmetal Alloy Wheels for him. I've got a feeling that they may have been on his W123 for a short time, but also have a feeling that they may also fit W126/C126 models.
Any thoughts...fitment size is 7J x 16 ET 21.5
Ok its not a Mercedes, but I need a good SMART Indi in and around Berks/Surrey/Oxon.
I've got a Brabus SMART Roadster that needs some attention and I'm struggling to find an Indi who specialises in SMARTS in my neck of the woods.
Ok, I've been asked by a client to sell their 1991 W126 560 which has done a genuine 2,700 miles from new
Why such a low mileage?....well it was a special build by Hooper who turned it into a limo, so it has a slight stretch and its also bullet proof, with very thick laminated glass to stop...
I'm looking for a good used front offside/drivers wing for a R107 SL.
These can rot badly in the headlight bowl, so if you have one that's rusty in this area, its not for me.
Looking to buy immediately, so look forward hearing from anyone who can help.
Spotted coming out of Reading on the A4 towards Twyford was this Ferrari 250 GT SWB with the Reg No FX9
After a bit of googling, it turns out to have been owned by the Downton Engineering who to anyone familiar with Mini Coopers, Downton were the premier tuners of Mini Coopers back in the...
Down at Blackbushe today and spotted (could hardly miss it!) this 58 Reg C63, which had been wrapped in a blue chrome effect, which had the unfortunate effect of making it look like a Christmas Bauble.
Anybody want to fess up to their old car?:p
Was thinking of buying a E250, but having spoken to somebody who works at MB dealership, I'm not so sure now.
He had some very damning things to say of them and advised me to stay clear.
1) Sump is plastic and he's had to replace a number of sumps on customers cars where other garages have...
I've got a 1988 G300 diesel.
Does anybody know of any companies out there that might be able to slap a turbo on this engine at a half sensible price.
Or alternatively can I fit a later OM606 diesel and will it mate upto the 5 Speed manual gearbox in the G-Wagen?
Or any other thoughts on...
Odd one this. I have a 1995 C200 Auto and the gearbox is losing fluid, but I cant understand where.
The underside is dry and the pipes from the gearbox to the radiator are also dry, so where is the fluid going.

I have a 2004 Vito ( new style Vito) which has been throwing up an engine management light. Vehicle has only done 72,000 miles.
Its been on STAR and apparently the actuator rod in the turbo is only moving 50% and therefore the turbo is only boosting at 50%.
Apparently I'm going to...
Last week I took in a PX....a 2005 "55" Reg Skoda Octavia 1.9TDI Estate with 610,000 miles on the clock. Owned virtually from new by its Taxi driving owner, the car is still on its original engine and still runs and drives.
The condition of it is amazing when you bear in mind the...
