    Happy to be back after 2.5 years with a Honda Accord (great car/very reliable/just didn't 'float my boat').
    Just bought a 2001 S320 (petrol). FSH/93K/VGC. Lots of money spent on it in the last few years: Suspension struts replaced/compressor replaced/gearbox flush & much more!
    Everything is working except the Rear Windscreen Heater/Demister. I read that this is also the radio aerial - the radio signal is fine. Not a big deal really, but would like to fix it, if possible.
    Also, I would welcome any other advice about the S320 (be kind please :))

    Many thanks

    The top few wires are the aerial, totally separate from the demister part.
    If none of the actual demister section are working suggest it's the fuse, rear SAM.
    Give the screen edges a close inspection, maybe a broken wire/connector?

    Thanks for the prompt reply. I'll check the fuse this evening. I'm hoping the fuse diagram is still there. Cheers.

    Is the fuse in the module under the rear passenger seat?

    Would it be kind to suggest letting me have it - nearly bought an S-class when I got my E, and still fancy one ;)

    I had to get rid of my 3rd E Class, as I had a potential problem with the SBC pump. I replaced it with a Honda Accord, which is a great car, but not the one for me. Only got the S Class last Sunday, but I already adore it! Makes me feel like a King, or perhaps a Russian gangster :)

    It was a bit of light humour in response to Chumbly mentioning Russian gangster. Another s class post today by the Uruguayan student user Negrodepazos

    Looks like we have pretty similar tastes. Considered an Accord when I got my first Merc, a C280, for my 30th. Previously drove dad's 260E though, which swayed me the Merc route, and have had at least one ever since
