    I bought the ML over a week ago and a few niggles have become apparent.

    1, The drivers side mirror glass seems tinted however there is a clear band at the top and the tinted area seems to be a liquid??? anybocy know what that is?

    2, Few patches of rust which I will treat and tidy up myself

    3, The ABS, ETS, BAS/ESP and EPC lights occasonaly come on, I have asumes this is the brake light switch which I have just ordered (£10)

    4, When the above lights are out the ABS sometimes is over sensative.

    5, Some times the traction control will come on even if I am putting away slowly.

    Any ideas??

    Many thanks

    1. Autodimming mirror has fluid in it, sounds like yours is leaking - straight replacement.

    3. Likely suspect and worth it for a tenner.

    5. Sounds linked to 4.

    3. Likely suspect and worth it for a tenner. My thaughts exactly

    5. Sounds linked to 4. Im thinking it is probably a dodgy sensor or even a damaged wire what do you think?

    The mirror won't do any harm - watch eBay for the right one to come up - and check out the likes of euromerc (Nick) as they're pricey from MB - £330 for my C-Class!!

    Give it a couple of days after replacing the switch (and clear any faults if possible) to see if it helps - all systems interlinked.

    Lots of Mercedes!
    be careful with the mirror, if that fluid starts to leak out and hits the bodywork, its worse than paint stripper.
