Many of you will have used Steve Garlick down the years especially if you are in the Maidstone, Kent, South East kind of area. Steve worked as a Diagnostic Technician for Mercedes (latterly Tonbridge) for donkey's years and has now, after much encouragement from MBClub members, set up on his own.

If you are looking for Steve, he can be found at his new premises, which are at:

Stevenson’s Independent Mercedes Garage
Unit 16 The Alders Industrial Estate
Seven Mile Lane
Mereworth
Kent
ME15 8JG

Between the address and Google Maps, something's not right. That postcode in Google Maps is nowhere near Mereworth, it's on the southern outskirts of Maidstone! Seven Mile Lane is a long way from where Google Maps puts the postcode - it runs from Alders Wood near Mereworth to Wrotham Hatch, is near as dammit dead straight - and 50mph limited!

I've often seen good words about "Steve from Maidstone" - which is presumably this chap - but this is the first time there's been an actual location rather than a mobile phone number - and, just like Class Cars (now just outside Sandwich rather than in Wingham) he's an hours drive from me :wallbash::wallbash::wallbash:

Where's the MB specialist near Ashford - I'm tempted to call Arrow Taxis who service their own fleet of E class 220's and (so rumour has it) have the Star system and service customers cars.

Couldn't agree more - went there at 8.30am this morning as weekdays are impossible for me. Mike was already there ready and waiting, good chat, coffee and discussion on progress putting a 5.5 ltr engine into his W210 190. Left for home with ATF changed, settings adjusted via STAR and box working beautifully. :bannana:

Steve has worked on my CLS 55 and my CLK 55 .. it is always a joy to watch him work.

His ability to sort things out is really second to none.

Steve is a Diagnostic technician which is the highest MB grade. He was employed to sort the unsortable cars! He has worked on everyone of my Mercedes :)

That doesn't say much for your cars.

I've seen you stated that before for these guys.

Are you able to elaborate on what happened?

Well a big thank you to Steve for his patience. I bought a W204 facelift steering wheel and airbag and Steve fitted them for me. Unfortunately my car couldn't communicate with the wheel so none of the paddles or buttons worked. Steve then had to put my old wheel back on. A couple of weeks later and thanks to Jack at Royal's handiwork, Steve was able to fit this wheel for me yesterday. Just needed to clear the SRS fault on Star and it all works perfectly. At last my wheel is upgraded. Thanks Steve for your help and patience!:bannana:

Who/where are Royals out of interest?
Royal Steering Wheels of Aylesbury. Lots of people on here have used them.

So they re-programmed the steering wheel unit to work then or was a rewire job or a new slip ring unit?

No when Steve fitted the Facelift wheel it was completely incompatible with my pre facelift car (though it looked nice). Royal made me a wheel to take my existing airbag and paddles so that we knew it would work when Steve refitted it.

note that postcode is actually

ME18 5JG

Also, Steve's mobile has poor reception at the garage so best to call the landline.
