    SBC Hold

    Since buying my W211 I have found SBC Hold useful. I was wondering if any knows if SBC Hold just applies the brakes against the force of the engine or does it have some method to reliving the strain of the engine and brakes fighting against each other?

    2003 E320 CDi Prop Shaft Centre Bearing?

    Hi, I’ve started feeling what can perhaps best be described as a shimmer through the drivetrain of my 2003, (now), 135,000 mile E320 CDi at various speed when accelerating medium/hard, with this shimmering only lasting for a second or 2 before everything smooths out again. From experience of...

    Remap - how much is TOO much?

    Hello, chaps, My 2009 W211 E280 should be with me shortly and I've tentatively booked a remap. The garage is an independent Mercedes specialist and the maps have a lifetime warranty so I trust the garage. Now, for £225, they are giving me a Stage 1 bhp hike from 190 to 270 which sounds INSANE...

    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...
