Hi all,

I looked at a clk, the private seller said the seat stopped working after he hadnt used the car for a while recently...hes prepared to get it fixed, but save a lot of hassle if its just a fuse...

Anyone know where the fuse is for the drivers electric seat on a clk?? There is one in the main fuse box which is ok, but it indicates (by a *) that there are others elsewhere??

Cheers

Jay

i dunno where the fusebox is .. but ...


Youve got to ask youself why it blew a fuse ....

is the motor on its way out ? check the prices of the motor before you buy . Might be worth sitting down when you cal the dealer.:confused:

thats what i was wondering, but if it is just a fuse then i was going to see how well the seats worked, i.e see if they struggled or not....

So if anyone can tlee me where it is, i can start from there...

cheers

Hi,

went for second viewing again, the seats ae fixed.... he says there was a problem with the cicuit board. He works in electronics and so got one of the guys at work to sort it out.. im not convinced.. is the circuit board gonna be an expensive item if it goes again??
I asked dronsfields for a price, but ill be waiting till eternity for them to call me back!

cheers

not if you take it back to his friends :)

seriously an electronics expert will be able to fix a problem on a circuit board. A fitter/mechanic will just swap the board over. One fix will cost pennies one will not - both should be equally effective.

As an example, I had one of my guitar amplifiers blow a hole in the circuit board. As it was out of warranty the manufacturer quoted just short of £600 for a new circuit board. A local specialist repaired the board for the price of a few beers (it took him less than 20 minutes). That was almost 10 years ago - the amp is still working fine :)
