    Oil filler cap blown off

    So I was driving my 507 today close to home. Gave it full throttle and then noticed I'd lost power steering and the battery warning message came up. Managed to just get it home - those things without power steering are almost impossible to move! Anyway, opened the bonnet and there was oil...

    W212 E300 fuel filler flap problem

    my son mentioned to me this evening that my fuel flap was hanging open. Took a closer look and it would appear that the "hinge" is broken where it attaches to the housing. The top seems well anchored but the bottom of the plastic hinge no longer seems to be attached to the housing inside the...

    W163 ML270 Low fuel light & "pinging"noise from around fuel filler

    Hi Folks, I have a couple of oddities that I wonder if you can help with. First is that the low fuel warning light does not come on. I know this as the car ran out of fuel completely a while back and it had to be recovered by the good old RAC. The gauge works fine, it's just that the low...

    2005 S211 filler cap won't unlock

    Made the mistake of locking car at garage before filler cap was closed. Now it won't unlock. Already taken the RHS interior side panel off and can see (and felt - as in "ouch") the actuator is moving back and forwards as it should when key is pressed. Seems as if the metal pin that secures the...

    Changing fuel filler cap

    The tether perished so I've bought another filler cap from Mercedes, no idea why they didn't fit it during the service but that's another issue. How do you remove the tether from the filler door, I've put a pair of pliers around it but it just split the plastic? I suspect it's just a case of...

    Fuel filler cap cord fixing, HELP.

    I have purchased a new petrol filler cap for my 2006 CLK as the old one is broken, but I can't work out how to remove the old cord from the inside of the filler cover flap, which is held in place by a kind of grommet which I will reuse for the new one. Can anyone help me please?

    Rust coming through filler

    Last summer I had all 4 wheel arches resprayed to remove the rust. I had already treated the rust on the rear wheel arches with a hamerite rust converted, but that was presumably removed by the painter when he stripped, bogged, primed and painted the arches. Assuming he did all steps. My...
