All very clever but how do you accept this kind offer and tell it yes??? Consulting the manual doesn't disclose the answer, and a random press of all of the buttons only...

    What is the right coolant level?

    This has bugged me for a while... The W220 manual says that the coolant level in the expansion bottle should be at the right level, however its not clear what "right" actually is. There is no real level indicator in the bottle apart from a little black knob on the inside about 3 quarters of...

    Oil Level Indicator

    I "can't find" the oil level indicator. It's a 2008 E220 CDI Avantgarde, it has COMAND, folding mirrors, run-flat tyres etc., would it have oil level as well - or is it hidden from me?

    The high level brake light has packed up on my E300 TD Estate and the handbook states that "work on the high-mounted brake lamp should only be carried out by specially trained personnel". I am not a mechanic, but surely it can't be that difficult can it? - I thought this after changing the...
