    Historic Fault Codes (23EA, 200C, 200B, 22E0)

    Hi everyone, I'm Jonas and driving an S211 E220 CDI (2006) and just read my Fault Codes. I got 4 stored in the ECM. Since they are all historic can I just delete them and check if they come back? I recently replaced my V-ribbed belt because it was cracked - could that be where the errors are...

    W211 E280 Estate: rear air-suspension

    Please can other owners advise... My 15-year-old W211 estate is showing it's age in body and, more importantly and potentially costly, in the rear air-suspension department... My mechanic in Macclesfield (Cheshire) advises me that the so-called 'air bag' units that are used instead of...

    I've seen a few posts on the difficulty of securing the disk to unscrew the top mount and referring to a special MB tool. I've just done this using 2 hose clips to clamp the disk. In this instance I prevented it rotating with a small socket strategically placed

    Anyone got any tips for this? 1. Removing the cover beneath the instrument panel. Besides removing three screws, is there anything else holding it in place? Is it just brute force needed to get it out from the heater assembly? 2. The manual says to remove heat shield and cross member under the...

    As above; the parking brake pedal won't stay in place and the release cable is loose. I've had a look and can see half of the pawl is still attached to the pedal and the rest is presumably behind the dashboard still attached to the cable. I've ordered a second hand pedal assembly but would...

    I have a 2004 car with 177k which exhibits what Kent of Mercedessource describes as 'Dead body in the trunk syndrome,' as well as occasionally hearing a wheel bounce a couple of times on lumpy bits of road. Thinking rear shocks would be a good idea but the car doesn't justify spending a...

    W211 E270 CDI 2004 blows cool air when idling

    Hey there fellow drivers, so recently I have ran to this issue. To explain it as clear as possible, problem is that when car is standby (idling, not driving), heater blows cold air no matter what position it is in. When driving the car, all heater functions work as expected, hot air blows, but...
