A couple of times in the last week or so, there have been significant obstacles directly in front of my car on the road, which I have had to avoid. One was an iron bar and the other was a (dead) badger. Neither was particularly tall, but I would not have wanted to drive over either.
My W124 has mushroom/cream coloured material on the door rubbers.
They are a bit grubby.
Any tips on cleaning them/products/techniques to use?
I thought about removing them and popping them in the washing machine on a gentle wash?
Good morning all, I trust you're all fit and well.
My manufacturers warranty ends next month and one of my alloys is starting to shred its laquer as well as all 4 centre caps. Has anyone experience of such a claim?
Are they covered and if so do you have to put up with much of a fight with...
My E320 is in the dealership and they have told me that I have the seemingly common problem of oil leaking onto the port shutoff motor which now needs replacing.
I have a Warranty Direct warranty (the highest spec that they offer), however the dealership has said that they might...

So I took the car to Islay and Jura at the weekend and after a particularly long, heavily patched road Im hearing a noise when going over any bumps. Kind of like a brick bouncing about in a plastic box...:dk:
I am guessing this might be a broken spring but not sure and no idea...
Hi i live in south leicestershire and car keeps getting covered in brown dust and looks terrible only after a day after cleaning. Any one else notice this ????? Think it must be dust from some desert somewhere. My friends covered too.
I am informed that the thrust arm bushes (bushings?) on my CLS are cracked.
Symptoms are a mild occasional squeaking from the suspension area.
The dealer informed me that bushes / rubber parts are not covered under the Tier 1 warranty as they are wear and tear items.
The Tier 1...
So, I have had my car for a month or so and have amassed around 3,000 miles. It seems customary to do a mini review at this point :D So in my best Vicky Parrot manner (she writes for Autocar and imho is the best female journo at the mo) and donning my petrol head reading glasses here are a few...
as most people are aware Carat 3.6 (Simon) just appeared out of nowhere a year ago and quickly dawned on us that he is mad as a bag of spanners !
But he does actually do some work and I got him to do a 3.2 M104 engine transplant into my 2.6 M103 190.
So just a thank you...

I have had my new C350 for a month now and it still brings a smile to my face.
However, I have one really minor niggle that is driving me mad. My drivers side seatbelt rattles & squeaks when I have it on. Constantly. It seems its the belt tensioner within the door pillar. I can't get to...
Hi, As above my new Vito is covered in Iron fall out and is rusting like tiny orange spots on the roof ,bonnet and flat edges all over.
Whats best to remove this? I know T cut will work but don't want to rub the fall out in the paint!
Her Ladyship has seen a nice SLk and is poised to buy it.
Just phoned our insurer (Privilege) for a quote and they will not cover if for theft unless it has a tracking device fitted!
Any SLK owners had the same problem?
Is the SLK more likely to be stolen than any other car?
