    S211.222; Automatic tailgate not opening

    The automatic tailgate does not open. It starts to open, but then stops just after a few centimetres, as if the motor is not strong enough to open it completely. Any suggestions what might be the problem? Video: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1LKcnq327TCk5enu2GOQ_RCr1E5qBJqeU

    Heater booster fault code; S211.222

    Have a S211.222, E320 CDI, 2006. There is a fault code on the Heater booster: It is not active, but it reappears after reset. Could it be connected to that the battery went low and I haven't recharged it properly after that?

    Front passenger head rest wiring termination? - 2005 E Class Elegance S211 Estate

    Hi, I wish to regularly remove the front passenger head rest so that I can lay the interior as flat as possible for long loads. (Windsurf boards to be exact) The head rest stops the seat from going flat, it just over laps the the top of the back seat when folded down. I have removed the...

    Does this E320 (2004 S211) have air suspension that can fail a-la-Airmatic?

    Hello, I have read here and there that S211 have rear suspension leveling, even if they don't have the airmatic option. Is that true? And if yes, does it fail like the Airmatic suspension? Is it as expensive to fix? If that is the case, it means that it is really not interesting to buy...

    Ok Fellas, My beloved E320 is behaving strangely. Occasionally (twice in the last three weeks and once at Christmas) I'm losing kickdown mid journey. Car will only then accelerate very slowly and not much past 50mph. Switch off and switch on and bingo - normal service resumed. She's...

    W211 / S211 E220CDI Prop Shaft - HELP!

    I have just bought an early 2008 E220CDI estate to replace my rusting 2001 version. The new one has a terrible vibration which I think comes from the propshaft as I had a similar issue with the old one some years back. I cannot find out what propshafts will fit. Mine is a 5 speed auto tip...

    S211 rear suspension stuck at full height

    I have a late 2006 E Class 280cdi elegance estate with 125,000 miles. The back end is stuck at its fullest height after it had passed over a series of speed bumps whilst lightly laden. No amount of coaxing will return it to normal height. It is jacked up at a comic angle and the tyres leave...

    W211 lower control arm (caster arm) DIY?

    I had my front balljoints and n/s/f lower control arm replaced by an indie a few weeks ago. Parking up in the garage last night, child#1 says "Daddy, your car's leaking oil". A brief inspection confirms that the o/s/f lower control arm fluid-filled bush has just let go and shed its fluid over...

    W211 loose driver's seat

    My driver's seat always seems to have a bit of fore-aft play in it, no matter where it's positioned — as if the "teeth" on the rail have too much gap between them. The movement is only around ¼" (6mm for the youngsters). As the seat movement has some friction in it, this doesn't cause an...
