    Filling wheelarches

    I get the feeling my G needs something more muscular in the arch department. It's on standard 15 inch wheels at the moment and any larger G Wagen alloys are very thin on the ground indeed. Those that are out there are very expensive. It has been suggested I get some BFG AT tyres or...

    Filling in a garden pond

    We've recently moved into a house which has a 10x6ft sunk pond in the ground which we want rid of. I've pumped pretty much all of the water out and tried stabbing the bottom of the shell to drain the rest of the water into the ground but it's solid - could be concrete lined but the lining is...

    Fuel Tank leak during filling

    On a 1999 CLK 320 the fuel tank overflows on to my feet if I try to fill the tank more than about 3/4 full. It seems to flood out from near the top of the tank, have you any advice on how to fix this?

    W124 needs slow fuel filling or petrol pump cuts out.

    My 1991 W124 estate has an annoying problem, I have to fill it with petrol REALLY slowly or the fuel bubbles up and makes the petrol pump cut out. I can only fill at a rate of about 1 litre every 10 seconds, so a 50l fill takes about 8 minutes. BTW, the car came with an invoice for a new fuel...

    Boot Lid Filling with Water

    Hi Chaps, Went out in the drought (monsoon) today and whilst returning to the car (211 E320) i clicked the "boot open" button and it twitched but failed to open. I lifted the boot lid and to my suprise could hear a not insignificant amount of water sloshing about inside. The extra weight would...

    Petrol smell after filling

    On the last two occasions I have filled the fuel tank I have noticed a strong smell of petrol when I have got back into the car. It lasts for a couple of minutes and is then gone. I do not remember it happening previously when filling up and I am not over filling as I always wait until the...

    Free Air on filling station forecourts ? ? ?

    I needed to put some air in my front tyres a few weeks ago (a rare event) and I went into my local garage and found it was now 30p for 3 minutes of air. Not happy but paid and the 3 minutes just about gave my enough time to inflate both front tyres. Since then I have checked all the other local...

    XP, Firefox 4, pages not filling screen.

    Recently had my pc reformatted & ever since a lot of pages do not fill the screen. They have quite large white borders or the downloaded page site on one side of my screen with a big blank white area & because of this (?) the font size is too small. I've tried Zoom in (which is crap) but that...

    C220 cdi S203 Fuel leak after MOT and filling up

    HELP! W210 ATF Filling Reservoir

    Hi guys, I would be very grateful for your urgent help. I noticed last night that oil was dripping from the bottom of the car. Fearing the worst, I took it to a garage this morning who have confirmed that the ATF pipe under the radiator has corroded. I now need to make a 250 mile...

    Filling out my rear arches??!

    My CLK has got a set of 18" AMG reps fitted. The front wheels fill out the arches very nicely, however, the rears just don't sit right to me. I know a staggered set up would mean wider rear tyres but I've not got staggered wheel sizes. Are spacers an option for me to help fill out the rear...

    Filling Problem

    Last night I went to top up my Diesel E220 (08 W211) and the pump kept shutting off due to the fule blowing back. left it a couple of secs to try again and I could hear the fuel gurgling back down the filler. I had the same issue a couple of weeks ago at the same garage (different pump). Topped...

    Are there two filling plugs on an S320 rear diff?

    Had a nose under my car in preperation for the job of draining and refilling my rear diff. I noticed that there appear to be two 14mm hex headed bolts on the top left and top right of the back diff (on the vertical back plate facing the back end of the car) both look like what has been...
