    Sometimes, if I shift to neutral when waiting at traffic lights the box does not want to engage drive when it's time to set off. I move the lever to 'D' but nothing happens, though it always engages eventually after a bit of shifting the lever back and forth after about 15 seconds or so...

    w204 occasional knock from front?

    My c320 makes an odd knock if I drive slowly over those mound speed bumps or a small pot hole. It does not sound like the suspension but possibly something loose like the under tray but that seems secure. The sound is almost like flicking an empty big bottle of coke and the sound only ever...
