    Active Brake Assist Limited Functions

    I’ve just bought a write off A-Class A160 AMG Line and it only has fairly light damage, however, the emergency braking radar looks knackered.

    S-Reg A160 Fuel Filter Removal Issue

    I have just been looking at the fuel filter on my A160 as it needs replacing and can see how to remove the various hoses without much issue.
