    Soft boot closure on 2007 350 SL.

    The soft boot closure has stopped working. I've taken the earth lead off the battery and connected up and it works again for a short while. I've also read the article on soft closure and had the boot latch apart twice and glued up the ball bearing small ports. However it's still not working. Is...

    350 SL trans intermittent trans problem

    Update - I went to Dartford transmissions in the end and they diagnosed the fault as a TCU repair. They had a unit on the shelf and the car was taken in on Tuesday and ready for me to pick up on Thursday. Also had a trans fluid and filter change while they were at it. Pleased with their service...

    350 SL trans intermittent trans problem

    OK thanks, I'll bear that in mind, but they're about 90 miles from me. I'm hoping to find someone closer.

    350 SL trans intermittent trans problem

    I'm unable to confirm that as I didn't think to ask the question. One was at a merc garage in Hertfordshire and the other was a one man band in Dartford, who seemed to know what he is doing. Where else would be the best place in Kent/SE London to find someone who could have one to get another...

    350 SL trans intermittent trans problem

    Hi, I have an intermittent transmission problem. Today I'm in stop start traffic and pull away. The trans won't change up and I try to change it manually with no response. I pull over and turn the engine off and leave it for a while, then start the engine up and the problem has cleared. Earlier...

    1994 C200 Heater Fan stopped working.

    Fingers crossed it lasts the winter, or at least for this cold spell. A car is totally disabled without a fan motor in these conditions, everything and I mean everything condensates then freezes up with the temperatures we've been having. I'll take your tip and take it apart in the...

    1994 C200 Heater Fan stopped working.

    Problem sorted - took off the underside of the passenger footwell/dash cover. Pulled out the large filter to the side of the fan motor and a heap of debri made up of dust, leaves and all sorts fell out of the filter. Cleaned the filter up and then took the cover of the fan motor, turned on the...

    1994 C200 Heater Fan stopped working.

    A few days ago my heater fan stopped working, then a couple of days later it worked. It's now stopped working again and refuses to come on. I've checked fuse number 14 and that seems ok, any other pointers - where is the actual fan motor itself? Thanks in advance.

    hole in exhaust pipe - mot question

    Easiest thing to do, once you've repaired it is put a couple of exhaust clips over the patch, try and get the clips with the flattened band, they should help seal it plus making it look better than just a patch aswell as helping you through the winter.

    All in all, I'm very pleased with how the car is coming together and how I can now walk to my car without any niggly little things staring back at me. Now onto the interior and a couple of mechanical jobs.

    Wanted 5 speed gear knob for W202 and.....

    That's excellent, Nick. And all I need other than one other part to restore the interior.

    Bodywork and wheel resto price.

    They also gave the car an exterior valet. They have a valet company attached and advised me that the interior, although up together other than a new gear knob and one other item to make perfect, could do with a good clean with the proper cleaners. Obviously another selling point for them, but...
