    Faint hot metal smell at speed?

    I recently noticed a very faint hot metal smell at speed, say over 90mph - on private roads, naturally ... :crazy: Is it ball bearings? - I had OSF replaced a few month ago. I also think it is when the S mode is selected, although I haven't driven in C mode for a while, other than in town...

    Hot Becker Radio

    Folks My Becker Radio gets very hot when on. I do mean very hot. I have the radio out of the dash just now as I was attempting to diagnose a speaker fault (now fixed). I noticed that the metal on the radio itself is really hot almost too hot to hold. Is that normal? What could be the...

    Predictably my recently purchased 1995 e320 has thrown a minor wobbly It gets quite warm, I.e around 100 on the gauge when driving fairly normally, I would have thought it should stay closer to the just above 80 that my others do. When hot it will misfire on one or two cylinders and as...

    126 hot start niggle

    Having been away with work for three weeks, my better half promised but 'forgot' to give my 126 a weekly run. No harm done I thought as she purred into life at the first turn of the key and I wafted along a dual carriageway at a regal 50 mph to pick up a few treats from Halfords. Once back in...

    Starting Problems When Hot

    Hello I'm looking for some advice on my Mercedes E220 W211 CDI (2005) Estate regarding the starting. Over the past 2 months the starting has taken longer to crank over before the engine will fire up but this is only when the engine is warm/hot. Starting from cold is fine. I have checked the...

    Rear seat base hot - 500SEC

    Not sure if this is the right section.. Yesterday evening after a 5-8mile drive, I realised the carpet on the base of rear seats (not the floor) was warm, which I thought was a bit strange. After I got home I removed the rear seat base and the metal part of the body was pretty warm/hot...
