Guys my 2001 W203 has the usual rust spots wheel arches bottoms of the doors etc. I got the car cheap so paying hundreds of pounds for paint repair when I will be upgrading next year (pension matures) isn't an option. So I spent £40 on rattle can primer, base coat MB 744 and lacquer attacked the...
My 1995 cabriolet roof was working perfectly.

My R230 has started to get stuck in park every now and then ....I have got a replacement rear brake switch on order but as I can feel the solenoid clicking when I depress the brake pedal I am suspecting that I am going to end up replacing the "Achilles heal" gearbox bracket ...... is there...
Sadly I have damaged the front side panel (passenger side). As I was turning out of a carpark I did not notice a very low wall which hit the side panel in the middle (between the door and wheel) and dented and scratched it. When the side panel went in it also pushed the screenwash fluid...
I have a very slow leak in front tyre c. 0.5 Bar over 2 weeks and wondering if using a sealant, such as Slime, that is fed through the valve a viable fix? I am considered using Slime as it does not harm the run flat pressure sensors.
I have already had the tyre refitted and the rims...
I have found you all a fix for not having to replace the whole glove box because of that rubbish catch (like a birds mouth and bar set up) that Mercedes CLKs have.
Basically buy one of these B&Q Ball Catch | Departments | DIY at B&Q

The number plate screws for your rear plate spin and spin. You can’t undo them because the thread into which they screw is spinning behind the boot panel.
Reason for Problem:
MB, in their infinite wisdom, use steel screws to secure the plates. But the threads into which the...
Does anyone know of any god quality instruction uploads on You tube that guide a total noob through the process of doing body work repairs. I'm afraid my knowledge of cars is poor but I might need to do something in this regard shortly and I want to avoid wading through the...
just noticed a couple of "Chips" in the rear window tint on my C63s Saloon, like someone tried to remove a sticker and damaged the tint.
short of claiming for a broken rear window on the insurance :naughty: is there anything I can use to cover up the chips?

The next day after driving approx 50 miles, the engine diagnostics light came on and I noticed the car was sluggish uphill and I couldn't select Manual mode.
Took the car back in to Merc. and...

Can anyone suggest or recommend an indy to repair my Panoramic Sunroof which is stuck in tilt? The car is a 2002 C220 CDi Sports Coupe and I think there's something jammed in the mechanism of the left motor. I live in Oxfordshire.
I have just had my car looked at by Mercedes & using the Star no codes , so that sounds great. They have told me that my Torque Converter seems to be on the slow road to failure in possibly 30000 miles so 18 months. They have quoted £2,000 for new TC. The predicament I have is wait till it gets...
ok, the simple task of changing the rear number plate on my 203 Coupe caused me more of a headache than i expected, so figured i'd post the fix here, in the hope it helps someone else in the future.
Originally, before i purchased my car, it was on private plates, and the garage that swapped...
