    CL500 W215 2004 sidelights can't remove.

    Hi, probably an easy one and I'm being useless but how the hell do I remove and replace my side lights on my 2004 W214 CL500? Normally you can just pull or twist, but is there a way of doing it? Is there a clip I'm missing as it's a very tight fit behind the headlights. Thanks.

    Hello, I have recently bought a 2001 CL500 in good condition. None of the fans are working at all. The vendor told me that the heater blower resistor needed replacing and that he had ordered the part and would send it on to me but I doubt that is going to happen. I am having some trouble...

    Interior items refurbishment

    Well I've noticed that the rear seat centre cubby vinyl wrap has become a bit tatty, some nicks on the top edges (child car seat damage). Do any members have recommendations for companies who can strip off the old wrap and refinish? Maybe in black leatherette to match the interior.

    Ok chaps, My 215 has a Visseeo MB3000 fitted into the armrest cradle. No problems pairing my iPhone with it.... The problems come when I try to make or receive calls. Network reception in the car is terrible, at best 3 bars and most usually 1 or 2. This is in areas where I'd normally...

    W215 wheel bolt length

    Right. First of all I'm either careless, a tool or a careless tool. Back in Feb I bought a new set of wheels for my CL and along with them, a new set of wheel bolts. Actually two new sets, one was 5mm too long so they were returned and a new set bought. Fine, they work lovely and the wheels...
