    Seatbelt oddity

    Hi all - I came to use the rear middle seatbelt today for the very first time as I had 4 passengers plus me. However strangely we couldn't work out how to work the seatbelt!! (It's a 65 plate C250 W205). It seems that the fastner is BELOW the plastic 'button' which is set into the belt...

    Servicing Oddity...

    I wonder if some of those who've owned a Mercedes for a few years could help me understand this please... When I purchased my 2007 SL 350 in September last year I knew the last service had been in mid April 2010 and was an A service so the next would be a B service. I also understand the...

    Pre-Safe Brake Oddity

    Driving up the M1 in the early hours of Sunday morning. Not a car in sight on the particular stretch I was on. I had Distronic Plus on and set at 70 on the dot. Then all of a sudden the Pre-Safe Brake warning came on and beeped a good 6 times, before the car backed off a little (or braked, not...

    New E Class Lights Oddity

    I pick my wife up from work and often pull up and wait around for a while. My lights are on auto and I have noticed that if I switch the engine off (key all the way counter clockwise) and stay in the car then the headlights will go out but the interior trim lights and dials stay lit. Turn...

    Central heating oddity - weird radiators

    Any CH-savvy folk out there? For the last couple of days, a couple of the radiators in my house have warmed up (to piping hot) even though their Honeywell temp-control valves are turned all the way down. I can turn them back off by turning them all the way up and then all the way down again...

    Cooling system oddity

    Guys 'had the old W124's Rad changed out following a pressure test (whereby the old rad failed at the top header seam.) This was done as precaution as we're touring abroad very soon :cool: Occasionally the low coolant level warning light comes on the dash, ( the Temp gauge never goes...
