    Hi. I can't seem to find any relevant thread where this problem has happened to anyone else (or it could be me not looking hard enough!). Anyway...the other day after pulling onto the drive the bonnet release handle that normally pokes out the front grill when the release handle is pulled was...

    Bonnet replacement help needed W124

    I have just replaced my bonnet on my 300CE. Firstly I need to know at which angel should the hangers be pointing for the spring to connect to. It can only be straight down, towards rear or towards the front. The hangers have 3 "teeth" on them which gives you a choice for the spring to hook on...

    active bonnet malfunction error message

    It has only been just over one week since I purchased my car (E200 CDi Sport, 2010 model), on the drive back I noticed that the washer fluid was empty. When I got home I opened the hood and filled up the washer fluid as normal. When I closed the bonnet the first time I noticed on the dash the...

    Smoke from Bonnet and Front Passenger Side

    Occasionally when the engine has run some distance, smoke erupts unexpectedly from the bonnet and front passenger side. I suspect it's caused by over gauged oil from the auto gear box dropping on the hot exhaust at high speed. The side opening of the gear box was once opened by a mechanic who...

    Bonnet latch snapped off

    Hi Sorry if this is in the wrong place. I was trying to top up screen wash but as I tried to open the bonnet with the lever that pops out after the bonnet is released from the inside, it snapped off. The lever that releases the bonnet on the inside of the car is working fine, but it's the...

    How do I adjust my bonnet catches? R230 SL but I imagine other models are similar

    Since buying my SL 350 2003 last year I on occasions got the "bonnet open" message in the dash. Lifting the bonnet and dropping from a good 18-24" seemed to do the trick, (but not always). At this time I could find no evidence that either of the catches had in fact come undone. I assumed it was...

    129 SL500 bonnet release cable adjustment

    I am hoping that you more knowledgeable than I can offer me some advice. I have a late 1995 SL500 192. The bonnet has become increasingly hard to get both bonnet latches to lock at the same time. I have just noticed that the bonnet release cable appears to be a relative new replacement that...

    Broken Bonnet Catch - 1988 300SE

    Hello. I'm new here. Found the forum while looking for spares. I live in France. The bonnet catch on my 1988 (RHD) 300SE has given way. Not sure of the details, took it to my local garage (not Mercedes) and they will be 'ringing round' to find spares this-afternoon, but don't seem all that...
