    Five garages and no one knows what is wrong.

    The AA, my regular garage, a Merc specialist, a brake specialist and a Merc engineer have all looked at my car and agree there is a real issue, but none know what it is. The latest idea is that it is a gearbox issue. Does anyone on here have an idea or how I can diagnose the issue? The...

    Help a lady whose steering wheel judders on braking?

    Hi folks, I must confess this problem is not with the little green SLK, but rather with my elderly, but not as elderly as the SLK, Honda CR-V. When I'm driving at, say, 50mph or above, if I need to brake more than very slowly, my steering wheel judders. She's going in for her service and MOT...

    E63 auto braking system, clarification!

    Chaps, just for clarification, my car is a 2015 E63 with no options and therefore, no distronic. I assume therefore that my brakes will never auto apply unless in a circumstance whereby a) My red triangle warning light is on and b) I, having first touched the brake pedal, the computer then...

    High pitch squeal from n/s front, disappears under braking

    Hi all, Recently purchased my W211 04 E Class, and it has just developed a "squealing" when driving between 0-25mph which disappears when braking. I've done a little bit of research and a couple people have suggested that it could either be the retainer spring out of place and ever so...

    Bang noise when braking

    Hi all When i brake there is a knocking noise coming from the left hand side. It only knocks once and varies in loudness from a quit knock to a louder one that can be heard outside the car. It doesn't necessarily get worse or better with speed or force of braking. Can anyone suggest what it...

    Twitch through pedal under braking

    I've recently started to get a slight twitch back through the pedal on the 129, almost like a burp or hiccup from the hydraulic system. It's usually under light or moderate braking, but doesn't happen every time. The brakes seem to work perfectly well, although I notice the braking force...

    Autonomous braking?

    Has anyone had their autonomous braking kick in? I seem to get VERY near cars and always have to intervene as I don't think it will actually brake. If it does kick in it's going to be very very late and very very hard with lots of ABS.
