    Help. Nearly new 2019 e220 estate. Reduce engine oil level message

    What smiley said ^^ Long story short , a friend of mine rejected a brand new very 'high end' expensive Italian motorcycle some years ago because its electronic system would switch from 'road' to 'race' without warning leaving him unaware that his almost 190 bhp bike had just switched off all of...

    R230 MB SL550 722.9 Transmission removal tips

    Jobsworth , we all know you can't get the torque converter out through the sump , my answer to OP post was to get to the bottom of why he thought he needed to remove the torque converter. It would be a dull forum if someone on their 2nd post asked how to replace the crankshaft on their 2019...

    Lost all transmission fluid !!!

    If you did indeed drive it for a while without ATF in it , it's fooked. I would have thought the bottom of your car (from the plug back) would be coated in oil.

    Trumps Beginning of the end

    A bit like the 'report' of the US navy steaming along telling a ship to get out of the way, after a heated debate the little ship said "we are a land based lighthouse..your call sir"...never happened.

    They will pull every trick in the book not to have this car back, it is toxic and they will have a very hard time selling it on with any profit. In fact their own sale rules might even exclude the car from being sold by themselves directly to a customer. They are $hit scared it will have to be...

    MANN filters

    Noogie, the days of OEM stuff being made at home are long gone. I too would like to see stuff built in the home countries but most do not even bother to build their cars in the home country. MB even build new AMG C63's in South Africa, Ford Transits from Turkey , Honda's from Swindon (not for...

    Exhaust throttle?

    Exhaust brake . Not quite the 'Jake Brakes's' fitted to big rigs, firing compressed air into the engine to slow the truck down. Not sure I have ever heard one in the UK. Bloody noisy on older trucks

    W202 Hazard Warning Lights Flashing Constantly.

    🙇‍♂️ Oops, Sorry Cymon I gave you duff advice on the position of the siren. I assumed it was very similar to a W203, I didn't know there was a 10 year difference between your car (W202) and the W203 I did this job on. Sorry.

    ELECTRIC SCOOTERS

    I have been asking for a Battery section on here for a while to answer all of the battery related questions. That is not what we need , what we need is a 'FIGHT CLUB' section. We could call it 'Assault and Battery'...Geddit ? I'll get my coat.

    7G+ Transmission change every 5 years... regardless of milage?

    Slightly off topic but the last gearbox failure I had was in a brand new Nissan SquashedGuy . I was working in Denmark and commented to the local engineers I was working with that it was quite a nice drive and was of course well screwed together because it was built in England . With that the...

    Rear Suspension

    You think AutoDoc got it wrong with your rear brake calipers ! Some of my first post on here are about a main (AMG) MB dealer refusing to believe the rear calipers on my car were the correct ones despite it being parked outside and I had a bunch of photos on my phone of various C55's clearly...
