    E320 CDI - Turbo gone, options and advice welcome

    Hi all, I have had the displeasure of running a 2004 E320 CDI which has been cursed since I bought it for my wife several years ago. To cut a long story short I've thrown far more money at it than it deserves, to the point where I'm so committed to the thing I can't see it scrapped. I had a...

    OM642 Engine - Slow cold starting

    Hi all. I've recently picked up a 2008 E320 CDI estate which has the OM642 engine. I've had a couple of these cars but with the OM648 engine. My car is well loved, one owner from new, FMBSH etc. I have STAR diagnostics and it's got no engine faults. However using a cheap bluetooth dongle...

    TPMS - Where to source aftermarket?

    Hi all. I've got a 2003 SL55 which I'm replacing all the tyres on. The TPMS is fitted to the car but disabled as all sensors are either gone or dead. The OE part numbers are A0055422318 replaced by A0009055705. I'm not super concerned about TPMS but I'm not keen on spending £400+ just...

    Help - swapped driver seat and no movement

    One module has four colour codes plugs, the other has a larger single plug doing the same job. Im sure your correct but I dont have the time for that on a rainy day with kids crawling around wanting entertained. My wife will need to live with her scrappy seats unless i can swap the top part only..

    Help - swapped driver seat and no movement

    You win the prize. Just checked the cabling at the back of the modules and they are different modules. I guess these cars are not identical afterall!!

    Help - swapped driver seat and no movement

    That is an option, but I was hoping maybe it would somehow reset or suchlike. The wireing does look fine though Ive not checked for power.

    Help - swapped driver seat and no movement

    Hi all, I have two S211 estates. Both identical in terms of options. One is pending scrap due to a hydrolocked engine. I moved the driver seat from car to car without disconnecting the battery. Now the car wont recognise the seat. The SAM says it cant talk to the module. In checked the...

    W211 E320 CDI - Occasional limp mode & pulsing power delivery

    Thanks - I too drive it in S mode in general. It makes no real difference to the performance but I think it might kick down a bit sooner. To be clear I don't drive the car hard when warming up. I only revved to 3k to see if it was limited. Where I live there is very little traffic but...

    W211 E320 CDI - Occasional limp mode & pulsing power delivery

    Hi, I have a 2004 E320 CDI Estate. (OM648 engine). I gave it a gearbox and oil service about 4k ago and it's been running pretty well. I also fixed injector blow by on cylinder 1 which seems to be fine still. Recently it seems when it's just started up and generally warming up when at...

    Parking sensor issue - cannot connect via MBCarsoft

    Thanks - ive looked closer and the sensors whilst well fitted are not factory flush. They are also very low down and accessible without removing the bumper. Thats also likely why they failed as they are not well protected from dirt and water. Thanks again for the help. I dont have any visual...

    Parking sensor issue - cannot connect via MBCarsoft

    Hi - i have a 2004 s211 E class estate which does not have parktronic but does have rear parking sensors which look to me to be oem. They are rear only. They worked for a while but not when reverse is selected i just get a series of rapid warning beeps and then nothing. I cannot seem to...

    Speaker upgrade options - 2004 W211

    Thanks John. Ive been reading up and seeing some old threads suggesting the speakers are actually quite good but they need an amp get the best. I also noticed its my dash centre speaker failing which I bought a replacement from ebay for for £10. The rear speaker will arrive any day...

    Speaker upgrade options - 2004 W211

    Hi - Ive lost my rear passenger side speaker entirely and the front passenger side is now not sounding good either. I see ebay seems to have some chinese unbranded speakers available or a second hand speaker seems around £20. Im not an audiophile but i do want working speakers which dont...

    Passenger seat will not recline - click from relay

    Thanks for this. When i hit recline all i hear is a click from some area. However using the memory settings I am seeing one of the settings appears to recline the seat slightly. So this would suggest the motor is good. Im guessing the switch is the next best thing to try change but Im still...

    Cracked Injector - repair or replace?

    Just to update on this I took the injector to Vehicle Diagnostics, Diesel Fuel Pump & Injector Test & Repairs who could not have been more helpful. They cleaned the injector, put a new end cap on and checked the flow. All for less than 20 quid and it only took about 10 minutes. They also...
