    W211 Fuel filler flap "emergency" release access...

Its located hidden away behind the trunk lining on the right side. All this info...

    S500 - residue on oil filler cap?

    Hi - I hope I can pick someone's brain. Went to look at a 2001 S500 for sale today. It has just over 100k on the engine. When I had a look at the oil filler cap, there was a faint hint of yellowish/white on the inside of the cap. I've seen much worse in the past on other cars. This was just...

    W124 fuel filler flap question

    For those of you with a W124 4-door saloon, can you answer this question: does your car have an extra 'space' for a fuel filler opening under the filler flap? Like the extra circular shape on this one: I'm wondering if it would be usable as an LPG filler - to avoid the typical (and awfully...

    Filler cap. Which side of the car ?

    I read this recently while abroad. If you look at your petrol gauge , you will see a small icon of a petrol pump. The handle of the petrol pump will extend out on either the left or right side of the gas pump. If your fuel tank filler cap is on the left of the car, the handle will be on the...

    High Temp Metal Filler?

    I need a metal filler product that can withstand high temperatures. The only products I can find have a max of 150deg, with a constant operating limit of 100. I need something that can withstand continual temperatures of more than that. Welding isn't an option. Any ideas? TIA PJ

    SLK - Rust Inside the Fuel Filler Pipe

    I have recently purchased a 2000 SLK and notice that there is a small amount of rust on the inside of the petrol filler cap, and quite a lot of rust on the inside of the fuel filler pipe to the petrol tank. Not sure whether this has been caused by a clumsy previous owner, or whether it is just...

    Tried to loosen Diff filler plug and drain plugs today to change oil. Neither will budge. Absolutely solid. The 14 mm hex tool I am using is a perfect fit in the drain plugs. An 8mm socket / ring spanner is used to fit on the hex tool. Result, 2 x 8mm 3/8 drive sockets broken under leverage, 1...

    W211 Fuel Filler Cap Attachment

    When I picked up the replacement mirror indicator from the parts dept last week (as detailed in a previous post), the chap serving me said "anything else Sir". Off the top of my head, I mentioned that my fuel cap was detached from it's fixing, so he came out with me and had a look. It's been...

    fuel filler flap guide

    Last time filling up with petrol found this plastic guide for the petrol filler flap had broken. :( (A) I think I found it in the parts section listed as GUIDE Part no- 1248000179 Can any one confirm this and is it just a push fit in or do you have to dismantle the actuator as well?:confused:
