Managed to split both hoses pulling off engine cover, struggling to find where to get any replacements without resorting to dealer.
Anyone have or know the location of where to get some ?
I can pay in either cash or W124 parts ........ :)
Yesterday I tried removing the engine cover for the first time on the CLK and I managed to split the air intake hoses, not realising they were attached.
I have duct taped them together but was wondering if it was worth finding replacements or would I be fine to leave as is ?
Hi Guys and Gals
My CLK430 project - I've only driven it for 10 miles and it is now SORN
I've had it running on the driveway for oil change etc. Have noticed it seems limited at 4K when revving it (fully hot of course).
I didn't gun it on the drive home from collecting it.
At the start of a long term project
Any advice on mild tuning for these?
I plan to make a SS exhaust as the current one is a bodged decat
Was going to use a free flow sport centre and backbox.
Too loud? Anyone done this?
Heard a rumour there is some merit in fitting the CLK55 air box
At the start of a restore project. My first Benz.
Picked up a 2001 W208 CLK430 which has potential to be made good once again.
It has had a bad 2nd set of cats removal - I will build a stainless system in the next few months.
A few questions
OBD2 reader - can anyone recommend...
Have an intermittent wiring connection issue at the moment in the CLK.
On some occasions on startup I have power to stereo. Other times I do not.
When there is no power to stereo, I also lose power to the heated seats and I also had an airbag light stay on for a short while...
Hi, can any one tell me if shock absorbers and springs for a clk430 will fit a c43 amg. Basically a work colleague is selling a Bilstein B12 kit for a clk 430 and tells me it will fit a c43 amg. The front and rear axle weights on the kit are perfect for my car,but not sure if the shock absorbers...
I bought a lovely W208(or should that be A208?) convertible in Azurite blue with pale grey leather yesterday.It has only covered 69k and came with a full history,main dealer until the last service. It has Brabus alloys,exhaust and bodykit.Only badging is Brabus on the wing where it would...
My car doors have rusted badly where the rubber seal is..I bought second hand doors online and it is about time to fit them and transfer all the compenants from the old rusty door to the new ones.
Can you guys help me out by giving some tutorials or wis/asra doc numbers...
As above, I only drive the clk once a week usually on a Monday or Friday into Glasgow. The car has performed perfectly since my acquisition in Nov.
So after driving into work and home again the car wouldn't allow me to move past neutral to get to park. It engages drive no problem but I can...
After 6mths with a BMW 330ci, a CLK430 convertible popped up that dragged me over to the other side of the fence.
The car is bought as a bit of a gentle restoration project, and needs a bit of love in certain places, so I'll probably be popping up with a lot of (inane) questions...
I managed to get 4 H&R lowering springs and two new rear Bilstein shocks for the winter run a round as I felt it sat too high previously. Had them fitted today and whilst the ride is dandy I think the rear is just a tad too low.
Can anyone confirm what sizes the shim nib pads come in and are...
I don't drive the CLK very much but a wee run today has unearthed an odd problem.
The car runs perfectly, but every now and again after I kick it down for a bit of speed, it seems to after that have a massive flat spot before it picks up. It idels fine it just seems as tho there's a 5 second...
So I'm going to replace the air filters on the CLK430.
MB have quoted £50 for the two or should I double that and get two K&N ones?
Will they really make a difference when everything else is standard?
Hi guys, I have just spoken with my mb dealer who has suggested the price fir new front discs is £160 but the front pads are £140! They have also quoted £50 fir two new air filters.
Can someone confirm what the part numbers are for all of these so I can see if I can source cheaper.
I'm looking to buy one of these. I went to see one today and was a bit appalled at the number of leaks I could spot in the engine bay so I walked away.
One was dripping directly onto the exhaust manifold, a drop every 20-30 seconds, the other appeared to be from the left bank head...
I'm looking for a clk430 convertible, preferably silver with black interior and with fewer than 100k on the clock.
If you have one for sale - I am based in Surrey but will happily travel for the right car - then I'd be pleased to hear from you.
