    Broken spring

    After too many boing boing noises from the rear of my W203 estate I finally got underneath and found the cause, a broken coil spring. Looking at Youtube's finest mechanics I'm happy they can be changed without a spring compressor, by lowering the bottom arm on a trolley jack after removing the...

    My knob is broken

    Hi, All. My spinning knob thing in the centre console has stopped working properly. It works as N.E.S.W directional and push down button, but rotating it no longer scrolls radio stations, etc. It doesn't do anything when rotating. It's not something I'd expected to break to be honest...

    Door check strap broken

    Hi all, Well it happened, gust of wind with the drivers side door open and a loud clunk. Door wouldn't close properly so I forced it, now the door shuts (just about) and the window doesn't work, so I'm guessing I've damaged the window mechanism by forcing the door shut. Anyway I've been looking...
