    c class coupe rear inner tyre wear

    Had a front punture earlier this week and as deemed 'unrepairable' I stuck the winters on earlier than planned. Took the rears off and whilst I knew they were low on tread, hadnt looked hard enough at the inner edge. Very similar to how they wear on the 3 series coupe - have lasted 26k miles...

    Seat wear - 2 years old

    I noticed today that the finish has started to come off the side bolster of my drivers seat. At 16000miles and 2 years I think it is poor and will take it up with the dealer and no doubt Mercedes will reject a warranty claim. I am not a bloater and clean/feed the seats regularly with...

    Brake pad wear sensors- do I have them and do I need to change them?

    Hi might be a bit of a bone question but does the w211 have wear sensors as standard? And do I need to change them with the pads? Also can you trust them or will I be damaging my discs by the time they activate?

    brake wear indicator

    Right the other day the brake wear indicator come on, I went round and checked all the pads but all of them only look half worn. Is it normal for them to trigger early? I wanted to know if the rear brakes have sensors or just the front? Im unsure if this is down to a dodgy sensor but I want to...

    Brake wear message

    Hi all, C200 W203 2006 I changed my brake pads front and rear but the new set didn't have a sensor wired in, whereas one of the pads on the front that I removed did have. Since then I have had a brake wear message up. Is there a trick to fool the sensor wiring into thinking it has one fitted...

    P & A Motor Vehicles – Sunderland, Tyne & Wear

    Has anyone had dealings with this particular car dealer? I thought I should post a note of my experience of these dodgy guys. I was going to buy a SL350 from them, but as they were in Sunderland, and I was in London, I had the car inspected by the RAC before I actually saw it. No point of...

    Typical tyre wear - scrubbing the inside edges?

    Hi, I've bought a 2nd hand set of 16" wheels and tyres for my car, which came off the same model car (W211). The wheels and tyres are in great condition with ~6mm tread on the Continental tyres. However, 2 of the tyres have slightly more wear on the inside edges. My question is this...

    Very bad inner tyre wear

    Hi Guys, I have a 53 plate C180K estate and the rear tyres are both worn right down on the inside. The rest of the tread is OK, its almost like it is only rolling on 10% of the tyre. I would say they have not done much more than 10K. I have a number of bushes replaced last year. As you look...
