    E500 tapping noise - solved by Wayne Gates!

    MY E500 had a problem that ruined it for me: a low pitched tapping noise only heard on acceleration. I’d had a couple of very experienced people look at it, including the fantastic Terry from Wayne Gates. Terry eliminated lifter noise, transmission or cat noise and eventually suspected the worst...

    Scratched Command screen - solved

    Thought I should share this. When I bought my car the Command screen was badly scratched. In the wrong light you couldn't read it due to all the fine marks on the screen. Perceived wisdom was that this was the anti glare coating damaged due to a previous owner using an aggressive cleaner. Was...

    Heater Problem

    I have a W208 convertible with the basic heating/aircon (i.e. not the climate control). The problem is that the passenger side air temperature is always at maximum, even when the dial is turned all the way down. During the cooler weather I didn't notice this, but now the weather has got warmer...

    5-digit postcodes solved by updating maps?

    Hi all I have just bought a 2010 W204 C-Class and its COMAND only understands 5-digit postcodes. Would updating to the latest maps solve this or does it also need a separate firmware update? And if it needs a firmware update, how do I do it? Thanks.

    Solved transmission issue - Too good to be true!

    So here is the story... My 7 speed Mercedes used to have rough shifts (1-2 and 3-2) only when cold. From "cold", I mean when the transmission is cooled down like first start in the morning. I do not mean freezing temperature. I was away for 2 months and my dad drove the car meanwhile. He is...

    Glove box rattle - solved

    I thought I would share my experience of finding the source of an annoying rattle in the glove box of my W204 C220 in case anyone else has the same issue. The dealer simply 'adjusted' the door using the two little rubber stoppers that are mounted on screws. This made the door close nice and...
