    S211 e55 and Towing??

    No problem, that's why I was posting on this thread as I thought that's what it meant! that's interesting additional info thanks. Unfortunately I 'did' own a rare AMG - it got written off by an Audi 2 months ago. I've not checked my S212 yet for towing

    E55 with distronic

    Normally in an E55 that doesn't work out with the optical system and Harmon Kardon amplifiers, so you end up with some average sounding Chinese unit or rewiring the entire car. However because this doesn't have Comand , does that mean it has normal wiring/normal amplifiers? Genuinely I dont know.

    Help please! Contaminated Fuel 2021 E300 Coupe

    Fascinated to know the outcome, but amazed how many people think/infer the dealer may have sabotaged it... Virtually all dealerships are franchises, if an engine blows up under warranty and they need to replace it, they don't care if Mercedes warranty pay for it or the customer pays for it. If...

    The E63 I now own.

    I would guess its a "stretch and unlatch" on that canvas like bit or there are hidden screws behind the plastic covers at the corners. Probably going to need to do some internet scouring or wait for someone who knows I am afraid!

    HOW TO: Dismantle S211/W211 861 rear Centre Monitor/rear TV Bracket A2118200032

    Also, I can't edit my post, but memory failed me and Step 23 has a mistake - I am actually using the flat blade to prise off tabs on the rear of the bracket. If any admin sees this, please feel free to edit 23 to: 23) Use the flatblade to prise the tabs off the bracket halfshell, allowing its...

    HOW TO: Dismantle S211/W211 861 rear Centre Monitor/rear TV Bracket A2118200032

    Thank you, Is there a simple/easy way to reduce them I am overlooking? I load them in via IMGUR, which seems to retain my phones camera quality exceptional well, but like you said, they almost are too large! (I know there are ways to manually resize photos, but as much as I like to help, these...

    E55 with distronic

    Wow, 14 years under a MB warranty, you don't see stuff like this these days! Financially it probably makes a lot of sense with the maintenance, but its an early car, with no Command and other than Distronic, not sure if it has any options?! An awful selection of "Halfords tat" too (most of it...

    The E63 I now own.

    Good that it seems to be resolved, I know yours is a 212 rather than a 211, but from my experience with enough patience and videos it probably is something you can fix rather than £900! I fixed my 211 leaking side bolster bladder for free using an iron and baking paper.... This guide may have...

    HOW TO: Dismantle S211/W211 861 rear Centre Monitor/rear TV Bracket A2118200032

    ...continued 21) I think I am showing wire routing here for re-assembly. 22) 2 screws here 23) Another 2 24) Small circlip to remove. After this stage I removed the rear (of the car) half of this cover. It was fiddly. 25) 4 screws under the cover 26) Remove the other cover half...

    HOW TO: Dismantle S211/W211 861 rear Centre Monitor/rear TV Bracket A2118200032

    I meant to do this write up back in December, but it's been a hectic year. Hopefully the pictures will jog my memory but do reply if anything isn't clear..... My E55 estate has the rear TV and the sunroof. 15 years of sun had caused the paint on the bracket (A2118200032) to bubble and flake...

    s211 e55k How many on the forum??

    I'd argue easier to keep clean because of the increased diameter giving you better access! With the 18's its pretty much impossible to clean the brake calipers or the rim inners with them still on the car.

    How to thread: fixing/repair a leak / leaking bladder / air bag / air cushion in the bolster of the dynamic seats found in a W211/S211 E55 AMG

    Missed this reply, sorry! Yes I've since heard this is also an issue, although not sure what is more common. Some people America have said the pipes degrade with age and just leak through the pipe walls. I didn't get a quote but I assume you can buy each complete bladder with pipe as a very...

    Dayum, always had a soft spot for the factory splits, but didn't realise how good it really would be. Dare I say it, after almost 2 years, the "to do list" is empty.....

    s211 e55k How many on the forum??

    I've been trying to discover how many Estates made it to the UK for a while now. Despite being out of production for 15 years Mercedes still deem this info commercially sensitive - I've asked via private lounge & a PR contact and no luck. However what I do know, is it appears the total of...

    E55 Progress Update

    Have you fitted the C63 boxes? Is your exhaust stock apart from them? It's a mod I've umm'd and ahh'd about, the pain being lengthening the tips for the S211. Also everyone else seems to have resonator/downpipe changes so hard to know for sure the exact sound change to expect. Also with the E55...

    E211 NTG1 - USB/SD Card Player or Wiring Adapter to fit Aftermarket Head Unit?

    Sorry to hijack this thread but unable to PM you, are you still selling this, and how much, and just wondering the reason for removing it? I'm quite happy being old school with my CD's, but the phone function is tempting. I have a Viseeoo which works well itself, but my car seems to regularly...

    Well presented E55......not!

    I have actually seen this car in person - not to buy it but because I bought it's original split rims (well, what was left of them after Norfolk roads....) The owner who sold it on Facebook was fairly honest about it - it is in horrendous exterior condition and is high mileage. It needs a...

    Edit 2: ok it is [/img] but getting the IMG link on a phone involves opening Imgur in Chrome then opening the image in a new tab and copying that link. Doesnt give you the proper from the imgur app or website. Edit: how do you post an image from a phone? [/pic] like pistonheads doesn't work...
