    Rain sensing wipers

    Just having a new screen fitted. Tipped water on sensor to check it worked and nothing happened. Do they only work when car is moving? Worked fine before. It's a 2008 E320cdi. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Slk 172 rain sensing wipers

    Hi does anyone know if you can retrofit rain sensing wipers to a 2014 slk. I have a correct rain/light sensor to replace the light only sensor but need to know if it can be coded/ programmed to the car. Thank You

    Rain Sensor

    I've had it confirmed that my SLK doesn't have the windscreen rain sensor module fitted. I was hoping it was present but not active. Does anyone know what is involved in fitting the module, is it a DIY job and price please? Cheers, Steve.

    W18 CLS - Rain sensing wipers

    The rain sensing wipers are temperamental and have two speed settings that can be selected on the indicator stalk and I have done the usual cleaning the sensor on windscreen/entire windscreen etc. to no avail. My question is on Star can the sensitivity levels be adjusted and if so then what...

    No rear lights in heavy rain.

    I drove from North Kent to Brighton and back today. M20, M26. M25, M23. The weather was shocking with monsoon rain and spray reducing the visibility to just a few yards in places. So why is it that so many cars (and I mean loads of them) had no rear lights on? They had front lights on –...

    W211 Climate Control Display Dim - Rain / Light Sensor Fault ?

    Hi I have a weird fault on the W211. The LED display for the climate control will sometimes be bright, other times it's very difficult to read. There seems to be a fault with the Auto windscreen wipe too. They wipe once when starting but don't go if I spray water over the sensor on the...

    E211 Boot lid drips when open after rain

    After its been raining, when I open the boot on my E211, water drips from the corners into the boot area. Its not just one or two drips, its a consistent dripping. I guess that water is getting trapped in the panel somewhere as there appears to be a sort of foam mesh in what I assume to be...

    A209 rain sensor too sensitive

    I have a 2006 CLK 280 Conv. When the wipers are set to auto mode all it takes is the slightest drizzle and the wipers go mental operating at full speed. Is there any way the sensitivity can be adjusted, I drive a Mercedes lorry at work and this is doable through the menu settings. Many...

    Driving a convertible in the rain with the roof down.

    This must of happened to someone. Driving down the motorway on a warm day with the roof down and 20 miles to the next junction when the sky's open unexpectedly. I have noticed that in the war films the high ranking German officers usually have the convertible roofs down whatever the weather.
