On a long drive back from N Wales yesterday I noticed a quietish but consistent high pitched droning over and above the normal engine sound. As far as I was able to track it the noise was absent when decelerating and increased as I went up through the automatic gears and remained consistent when...
Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction here.
I have an old w210 e430 in the barn. I left the key in the ignition when the car was in the barn for about 3 months, and the battery obviously went flat.
Put on a new battery (fully charged), and the key now does...
Hello all. Newbie here.
Potentially looking at an E430 tomorrow. Was wondering what I need to be looking out for. Never owned a Mercedes or a V8 before.
Rust seems to be the big thing. Anything else I need to consider?
Thanks for your help.

I have an 2000 E430 that makes an irritating whoosh on acceleration, and sounds kind of like a bus if you know what I mean. I'm thinking that perhaps this is the fan coming on constantly and unnecessarily as the result of a bad fan clutch?
Once operating, the engine temp stays at...
newbie of sorts here. I've looked all over, but can't find a solid answer. I've had the dreaded ABS/BAS/ESP problem, and replaced the brake switch to no avail. I then came across several suggestions that the fan in the ECU box (behind the brake hydraulic control block) might be broken or...
Due to purchase of a new car I need to move on my trusty 7-seater 210 estate.
It's a 2000/W plate facelift car, in silver with a black, electric/memory 7 seat leather interior with the very rare built-in kids booster seats in the back.
4.3 V8 with tiptronic gearbox.
I became aware of a clonking noise from the rear of the E430.
It sounded like something was clonking against the petrol tank.
I found a very-corroded piece of steel small-bore capillary tube.
It was not secured and was knocking about.
It traced one end of it to a rubber tube connected to a...

Whilst it might probably be one of the last of the production, I think £6k for a 132k miller car is pushing it somewhat, nice and clean though

While changing the lower set of pollen filters on the E430 (W210 year 2002), I've discovered a little lamp set into the cover that needs removing to get at the filters.
It looks like a little LED lamp ... No apparent bulb ... Wires from it disappear up into the dash area.
Part No is A220 820 11...
