My question is do fault codes and messages have a date stamp in the ECU.
If the error codes and messages are cleared from the system and ECU would Mercedes still be able to tell when the fault actually occurred ?
Recently had a license plate bulb error flag up on the "malfunctions" page. Although still both working I decided to change them as they were very black inside the bulb. Took the opportunity to go down the LED route and ordered error free bulbs from the web. Fitted and immediately had both left...
I think I have a problem with one of the ABS/Speed sensors. ESP inoperative and cruise control not working.
If I replace the sensors will I still need to get the fault erased or will this happen automatically?
I've been fishing leaves etc. out through the slots under the front bumper of our S203 but I think there's a fair bit more debris in there ... I guess taking the under tray off would be the only way to get rid of it all? Reluctant to try blasting it out with a jet wash!
I assume there are...

I have had an issue with my 208 when it's raining and using the wipers that the windscreen does not clear very well.
It's almost like it smears everything across it and a second or 2 later it clears.
I have changed wiper blades and even the screen but still seems to be the same...
Hi folks very quick question

Idea of cost - best place to buy?
For use with a 1996 C180 Estate.
many, many thanks.
I have a 5 year old C180 sport coupe, I have had it for just over a year and in the last 2 months the windscreen hasn't been clearing well at all! I thought it was the weather but I can literally sit for 20 mins and it won't clear any of the windscreen. It doesn't feel like the vents are...

I may have unintentionally wound a few people up recently with a misunderstood thread. I just wanted to say sorry if I offended or upset anyone. It wasn't intention to cause anyone any stress. I did request the mods to just delete my account and I'd move on but they have said that isn't...
I ended up clearing the ice and snow off my car today but dont know if this was such a good thing or idea as I am worried about scratching her and if I have now by doing this left tiny sratches on the surface of the paintwork. I used my hands to do the majority and the rest from the heat...

I read somewhere that the run-off drains can get blocked and require clearing from time to time.
When it rains I get a bit of water in from from the roof rails - not sunroof seal, I checked.
Is it the drains? If so how do I clear them?
If not - any suggestions?

BBC News - Met Office warns of icy roads after heavy snow
I couldn't help but notice the car in the picture. That must be one of the worst examples of not clearing your windscreen of snow I've ever seen.
I have used this portal twice, and each time it located the part I wanted (auto dimming rear view mirror and driver's door mirror mechanism) for my 210 estate quickly, with at least 3 quotes from different sources.
They do all parts for all makes.

In my SLK I have the 'rough' trim (cant remember what exactly its called - will look in the literature tonight) that is kinda like rough leather.
