    Alarm & Tow De-activation

    How does one tell if these have been activated, is there an indicator light anywhere? I pressed the internal alarm button the other day, but it still went off with a dog inside!? Without such this is woeful! :fail

    Tow bar design calculations

    I want to make a tow bar and need some help with calculations to make sure I choose suitable steel profiles. The tow bar won't be for towing, but only for attaching a bicycle carrier. The current idea is as follows: 1) two pieces of channel pointing front to rear. These will have the...

    Rear tow eye cover loose

    As above. I went over my rear bumper with a DA polisher yesterday and the tow eye cover popped out, now it won't stay put and is very loose. Is there a knack to putting it back so that it doesn’t fall out? As far as I can tell nothing has broken off it. :dk:

    Tow bar advice on new GLE SUV

    I'm keen to get a tow bar fitted on my new GLE SUV (not coupe). I'm very confused about what I need to look out for but my requirements are very simple. I'm not looking to tow a caravan or trailer or anything like that - it will purely be used for a 4 bike rack. There seem to be so many...

    W221 / S500 bike racks - any alternative to a tow bar?

    I would love to buy an S500, but I need to carry a bike or two, once a month. Has anyone got any suggestions of how I could do this without going to the faff of having a retractable tow bar? Someone proposed a Saris Bones, but it seems that Saris don't recommend it because of the side...

    How far can you tow? Tuggin' consumption!

    Well, as the title suggests a little survey on fuel consumption whilst something is following you around. A few weeks ago I towed our test rig ( with the very aero dynamics of Satan) up to Norfolk with my faithful 2.1 non HDi 406. As it's a 320 mile one way I didn't stick strictly to the 60...
