    W124 Climate Panel / Console Illumination - From Bad to Worse

    Some time ago (months actually, but now winter is here it’s annoying me) the gearshift indicator illumination on my C124 failed - so I decided to fix it yesterday. I dug out my bag of those little crummy bulbs used for instrument and switch illumination, and removed the centre console trim /...

    W124 E220 Loud ticking - worse when hot

    I have an 1995 E220 with the M111 engine, and it has developed a pronounced ticking/tapping noise. It started last autumn and I assumed it was one of the tappets - it is directly linked to engine rpm and seems to be coming from the top of the engine, near the back. I had the headgasket done over...

    Diesel cars pollution is much worse <18C

    A recent survey of Euro 5 cars has shown that they generate much more toxic emissions below 18C principally by defeating much of the engine pollution controls.. This is perfectly legal under current legislation. It's unfortunate that defeating the emission controls also may have the effect of...

    Worse ever tint...lol

    Does anyone heard of "TMC London window tinting and car wrapping" based in Romford? Well, if you haven't don't even search for doing anything with them. If you see them anywhere around the network, you must go away of that link. Just had done the tint of my CLS63 with them today and disappointed...

    Hi All, Car is a 2008 W204 C220 CDI Saloon, 5 speed auto. I got new tyres last week and the dealer replaced the 'diff balancer' under warranty (just looks like a mount behind the rear subframe (which the diff bushes are mounted to)) - stiff component but the bushes were worn so they replaced...

    I called in for fuel and to check tyre pressures today, as the air-line bay was empty I decided to check the tyres first and couldn't believe my eyes at the sight of the car at the nearest pump. The driver of the car which caught my attention was just returning to his vehicle and was in a bit of...
