On my W124 500E I've recently started to have the fuel needle dancing quite dramatically.
It's ok from full down to 1/2 & from 1/4 & below but between 1/2 & 1/4 the needle is up and down in quite quick movements.
Is this the fuel sender or something more sinister.
Right, got another issue now with the old battle ship ...
The petrol needle and the speedo needle are moving up and down when the engine runs ... First it was the speedo especially at speeds around 20-30 mph but now the petrol needle is also moving up and down irrationally 0-:

Hi all just started to notice on my 62 reg c220 sport plus, the rev counter is not dead steady on tickover, either in park or drive (on auto hold) is this common or a sign of something like injectors etc
I think this has been put in a thread before, but I cant find it
In the morning when cold, the rev counter needle stays on zero

Is there a cure for this without stripping it down or...
I notice that sometimes my cars speedo needle wobbles, I have noticed it a few times, usually on the first bit of dual carriageway on my commute (2 mins from home). I haven't noticed it at any other time during the day (typical commute is 20 miles each way).
I am guessing the speedo is...

All, the speed needle on my E270 has always stopped at 25mph and on some occasions not moved at all!
All that is now sorted thanks to a bit of super glue!
Not sure whether you know, but the speed needle is actually controlled by gears behind the elegant housing and in my case, the large...
The coolant temp needle on my SEC has all of a sudden become really twitchy. It will sit at the correct temperature for a while and intermittantly flick back to zero. Im guessing its the sensor, a connector or the insrtument cluster. There are 2 or 3 sensors near the water pump, any ideas which...

On the old jap imports, we just used to prise the needle up with a spoon underneath it... anyone done this on a merc?

I am hoping someone on here can help me I have a 2001 200K CLK Tip, its covered 55K and last night I filled the car up with fuel full tank. Started the car this morning and the dash board tells me that its empty (the needle is just sitting at 0).

I have a 190 2.5-16 Cosworth, with 140k.
After driving it a bit harder than normal due to a petrol tratment addative-any excuse really, the Rev Counter needle was being worked a little more than normal.
A couple of stuttering sweeps then it just fell onto the stop, reading '0'.
Is this a...
Can anyone tell me how the cluster comes out of the dash so that I can get to the speedo head. Hoping to unstick it rather than pay £ 326 plus VAT plus fitting if I can do it myself.
C180 94 M
I have a few teasing problems with a 94 C180 Speedo needle sticking and consol lights. Does anyone know how the instrument cluster comes out or how to get at speedo head. Odmeter works not problem with ABS line.
