    Was driving our C180 the other day and i noticed that the ABS light didn't go out and that the speedo was dancing a little bit.

    And when i press the brake pedal the brakes feel very rough and i get a LOT of vibrations back through the pedal.

    Anyone know what this is? and how much it will cost to set right?

    Its a 96 N C180 Esprit Manual with 73k on clock.

    Cheers

    Maz.

    Abs sensor playin up probably.

    Either on the front hubs or in the diff.

    Get it checked out, but probably £15 or so per sensor from mb.

    My new sensor from MB was £34.83, and £18 for it to be fitted at a local non MB garage. That was on 31/10/02.
