My understanding is that after a wheel alignment, if the steering wheel is not straight, adjusting the track rods by the same amount both sides will straighten the steering wheel (so long as its on tarmac not on turning plates on the alignment machine)
Is this definitely correct...
My son has his driving test tomorrow around noon.
When doing the reversing around a corner manoeuvre he has been adjusting the NS door mirror so that he can see the kerb. Today he had a professional driving lesson & matey told him he couldn't do that.
Seems odd in light of the way many cars...
The glass in both my doors comes too high: if I close the windows, then lower them slightly, all is fine. They seem correct in "tilt" and in how far out from the door seals they are. The top and rear edges are nicely parallel with their respective rubber seals.
I've read up what I can...
As title really, command screen has started flickering on/off and the two buttons at the bottom don't work a lot of the time, screen adjust and a phone function. Anyone had this before? It's in a c63 2010 if that matters
Heading across europe in the summer in my cls. I know for France especially i need to sort the headlights out. The headlights are a unique shape are there specific stickers to adjust the beam pattern or how can i do it?
Since short time I am an owner of W209, and I love it !
But now ahead of me is few months trip to continental Europe where I will have to drive on the right hand side.

My 240td (1981 with 120k kms from new) has some auto box problems. It changes quickly from first to second and in third will suddenly change down and over-rev.
Fluid levels are OK and fluid is clean.
How do I fix this?

Hi guys, just off to France for a skiing holiday, and I was sure that the E-Class would have an adjustment to change the headlight deflection, but on checking the owners manual, it says I have to take it to an authorised dealer.
So can anybody enlighten me, is there a switch, and is it easy...
My first post. Sorry if this is the wrong forum.
I have a new W246 B180 CDI Sport. I'll list below the options that are on it's datasheet.
Can anyone tell me how to change the permanent multifunction display? i.e. this one:
The above photo is not my car (it's one I found on...
I had to use the screen washers for the first time today, and they are set far too low, hardly hitting the screen.
On previous cars, it's been a simple job to adjust with a pin, but these seem to spray in a fan shape, and the jets aren't easily get-attable, it seems. The car is a new C220...
Does anyone know if there is a method of adjusting the tailgate hinges on S211 Estate?
The tailgate on my car never seemed to sit right in the body opening when closed. I did a bit of adjustment myself where the actual hinges bolt onto the tailgate which made it a bit better but...
I turned left sharply earlier today and hear a loud clunk. There were no feelings of instability afterwards and no loud noises.
However this evening the Xenon lights did not level when I switched them on and remained on a 'short' beam.
I'd always felt the car sat a little high at the front even when on Sport II setting.
Yesterday I went to see Acid at MSL www.mslcentre.biz and he lowered it via STAR.
The difference is subtle, but I feel it looks more purposeful than before.
It's very strange to see someone push buttons...
Hi again folks,
I have sorted out the banging noise from the rear end when it shifted.
The subframe mount on the drivers side nearest the door had disappeared!
The shift from 2>3 and 3>4 is quite aggressive while under load, if you ease of the throttle its smooth.
I have removed and cleaned...
