    HOWTO: Fix no GPS signal on NTG 2.5 COMAND

    So I had no signal on my nav. Apparently this is quite common - the aerial goes bad. All the threads on here mentioned a Fakra type connector for a replacement receiver. I bought one of these with the intention of connecting it to the back of the COMAND unit. On my CLS it was really, really...

    Howto: Pioneer Emotion speakers in a W203 Coupe

    Hello! This is my first hopefully helpful post here rather than a request for help. I'll probably mess it up somehow :rolleyes: You can skip a large chunk of time by buying the right adapter plates, but I couldn't find any and had to get "close enough" ones. So: W203 Coupe, Dec 2003 model...
