    Powered wing mirror

    The wing mirror on the passenger side of my 06 E320 doesn't fold in fully. I would estimate it manages about 50% of the full movement. How am I best to troubleshoot this? I don't think it's electrical because surely there would be no movement at all if it was. I was wondering if there was...

    Hi, I'm having a few issues with my powered boot opener/closer, it just stopped working one day last week. I have done a little fault finding today but to no avail. I have tested the drive motor and that is working fine when 12v applied to it. The close button on the boot lid itself is...

    Solar powered security lights

    Anyone used them? Are they any good? I know this sort of thing has come on in leaps and bounds over the last few years and thought it may save me running cables everywhere.

    Mains Powered Tyre Inflator

    I'm looking for a good mains powered tyre inflator, I'd love something that works as well as the compressors on a garage forecourt but that may be asking too much but do want something that's quite quick and with a bit more muscle than the 12v cigarette lighter ones. Does anyone happen to...

    Powered boot close R230

    Watching a few videos on you tube I've noticed that the US have a button on the trunk to close the boot electronically. Not seen this on UK videos. Can it be retro fitted? Cheers

    Quicker steering box to W114 powered by M104 3,2

    I was on the race track yesterday with my Coupe to make a base test of what's working and what needs to be improved. Car is really fast with rebuilt suspension and brakes but the steering could be quicker. Is there a quicker steering box from some other model to be fitted in W114? Thinking of...

    R230 powered boot lift intermittent failure

    Does anyone know the high level operation cycle of this? The car has keyless, so the feature is brilliant - just approach the boot, pull the handle & up it goes. Except this morning it didn't. Pulled the handle & the lid popped up an inch but didn't fully "unlatch", so had to pull the handle...

    I would like to install some very, very loud sirens or alarm sounders which I can control from a relay or which plug in to main power socket, ideally one inside and one outside. I’d also like to install some moderately loud “beep” sounders or buzzers in much the same way. Any suggestions...

    Solar powered battery chargers

    Just purchased a koolertron 8.5-watt 12v solar panel battery charger from Amazon. I already have a Ctek for home use but purchased one of these for the times when a suitable power source might not be available. For example leaving your car at an airport car park for 2 or 3 weeks. Ok a good...

    Folks I went to look at an e55 recently and was surprised to find one of the seat buttons snapped off and missing, also the electric motors to raise the steering column weren't working. In the case of the steering column - does this happen frequently and can be easily repaired? In the case...

    Problem with W166 ML250 powered tailgate

    If the tailgate hasn't been used for a day or so when I open it (key or doormounted switch) it unlatches and just sits there, doesn't raise. I then lift it by hand (bit of resistance from motor) to its full open point and press the tailgate mounted button and it closes normally. From that point...
