First-timer here. Basically, my boot had stopped opening fully, but closed fine, (on an automatic open/closing system) so to diagnose the problem I wanted to know if the struts had failed. So logically I thought I could disconnect the automatic arm to the boot (simple clip-on) and see if...
I am trying to replace the high level tailgate brake light on my Mercedes Vito (2017 - W447) but cannot find any inf. on-line re. removal of housing assy. I think it may pop out if I gently prise it away from body but don’t wish to damage it should it be held secure by a bolt. Has anyone...
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?
Hi to all the technical wizards out there.
I've just encountered a strange issue with my GLC's boot opening and closing.
The boot will open and then immediately close.
I've tried opening it via the door, boot lid and key and in all instances, the boot will immediately close after two beeps...
On my W212 2014 E220 Estate the electric tailgate wobbles when it closes. Opening is no problem, the movement is smooth and fine. But when it close the movement varies between faster and slower.
Is it a problem with the motor(s) or the hydralic gas springs (struts)?
I just took delivery of my 2010 ML350 very pleased with it but it did come with a problem which i was aware of.
The power boot opener does not work.
I have done a little bit of poking around and found the pump this runs when the button is pressed and it has hydraulic...
I suspect that many owners of a W211T will have a tailgate window, the wiper spindle surround of which looks like this - quite possibly a common problem.
My question to our experts is this: is this metal plate available as a separate part, or is it an intrinsic part of the window glass?
I have recently acquired a 2010 E350 estate, which so far has been brilliant.
However I have a problem with the auto closing tailgate/boot lid.
It closes down, makes the correct locking sounds and then a short electric motor type unlocking sound. It seems to be safely closed but the...
The lock on my boot wont open and has been sticky for sometime. I read on a thread about oiling, using WD40. Does anyone know exactly where I can spray the locks and where NOT to spray :-). There is no 'key lock' on the boot itself and the only way to open the boot seems be to press on the...
I have been tinkering with the panzerwagen and I got the tailgate self closing to work, but it wouldn't switch off the interior lights. So I adjusted the mechanism so it closed a bit tighter, but then couldn't get the damn tailgate to open at all! I had to buy a large philips...
This is my first post, so I apologise if anything goes wrong :Oops: (or if I go into too much detail)
4 weeks ago I purchased my 2004 E Class 270 CDI, which is a dream to drive, and pretty much since I've had it, I've had the same recurring problem...every now and again (typically in...
The tailgate soft-close mechanism on my 1995 W124 estate has started behaving strangely. The mechanism sometimes starts the closing cycle for no reason when the tailgate is already shut. Sometimes it does it just once, sometimes it carries on for a few minutes or until I pull fuse C. The car...
