My roof closes fine but at the very last moment when the fabric tucks into the rear windscreen, a small section of material about the size of half a golf ball bunches up and sits as a clump on the outside edge of the rear windscreen on the lower right hand corner. If I stop the mechanism from...
A friend of mine living in France is looking for a cherished CLK cabrio, as above, probably with the V6 320 engine, but may consider a 200. Condition and service history are, of course, important, with the best he can get for about £6k. To avoid the stepper motor issues etc, he is looking for a...
Evening all - a long time since I've been on here, but now back into MB ownership.
Wifey has a nice 05 A209 CLK320 - apart from where she has whacked the front n/s corner of the bumper and broken it. I've looked at the usual places (Mercman, Dronsfield, etc) but had no luck in tracking a...
Small problem with the roof mechanism.
When opening roof all works fine until the last bit when the metal cover is supposed to come down. It stops and warns the boot cover is up. I then have to put the roof back up, open the boot and pull the boot cover forward a fraction. The roof will then...
I have a 2003 A209 200 Kompressor and when I switch on the Air con the Light comes on but nothing else happens as the air coming out of the vents is not cold enough. The temperature is on low, so I would like to know where the air con unit is under the bonnet and what if anything would you...
My car has done just over 10,000 miles since it's last service about 1 year and 3 months ago. The MOT is due in May and I'm wondering whether I should service it or not. It's on 61,000 now.
It drives well and regularly gives fuel economy in the late 20's and on a very long steady...
Well I don't know what the swearing policy is on this rather useful and friendly forum but I'm sure you'll get the picture :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :wallbash: :wallbash:
So I was going about my business driving home from work when a pheasant decided it wanted to make friends with a...
With the weather getting better I'm keen to be taking the roof down more often. On the whole the roof has been working really well both going up and down.
Recently though at the final stage of putting the roof down the tonneau cover struggles to close more often than not, from time...
Morning All :-)
So I was driving home from my friends house at about 10PM last night when the Engine light came on my fairly new to me 2008 CLK 280. Being a 280 I have checked the engine number of the M272 engine and it looks to be quite past the balance shaft issue.
I see P0128 refers to the...
The door speaker cover on the right door has been badly cracked, probably I am told as a result of the door being closed on the metal buckle of the seat belt. A previous owner I might add ! Anyway, I have a replacement on its way in the post. The speaker itself still works.
Can anyone please...
Over the last few months i've noticed that the wash wipe function on my car has been playing up and working intermittently and has now pretty much stopped working altogether.
The twist part works fine for the wipers and the indicators and headlamp flash are also all fine. Its just...
I am wanting to source a "top half" car cover for my CLK to protect the soft top during severe weather.
Can anyone please recommend such a cover which will do the job and is reasonably easy to remove when required.
Additionally is there a recommended supplier for a FULL cover which is a...
Hello all :-)
Now the proud owner of a 2008 CLK 280 Sport Cabrio Obsidian Black as of a about 3 weeks.
So far have fixed intermittent warning about turn signal in right mirror and handbrake cable rubbing on prop shaft.
Very pleased so far, just cleaned it for the first time today...
I am still bothered by a rattle over bumps in my CLK. It appears to come mainly from the top of the windscreen in the corners.
My garage says that it isnt bad for an 11 year old car.
Could I do any damage if I do the following.
Stick some padding either side of the locking...
Hi, names Karl, I have a 2005 CLK240 convertible.
Central locking does not work from distance, only when fob is near to door handle (infra-red). Fuse number 8 in the boot keeps blowing.
Looking for advice on what to do next.
Hi there, got a 2005 CLK240. My wife took it to get it cleaned and an enthusiastic cleaner pulled the drivers side seat belt and now it doesn't retract.
Does anyone know where I might get a replacement.
Thanks in advance.
Looking to replace the 16's wheels on my A209 with something a bit bigger.
Must be in good condition, and preferably with decent tyres.
Something like a set of staggered Adharaz would be nice, but anything considered.
Sorry if this information is already in this forum but I am unable to find it.
I am looking at buying a 2006 CLK 280 7G Sport and have a few questions.
1, Is the gearbox in this car like the DSG in the Audi A3 and the SMGII in the BMW where you can change gear manually or does...
