    Hi every one,

    I am buying a 2003 W211 (E 240) Sedan from an auction.
    It has been a police car and now they are selling it to private owners.
    They told me that it has the police dash installed but they are providing the elegant front dash and 4 sets of tires and AMG alloys with the car.
    The car has around 190,000 Km,s on it.
    I am looking for the service manual of this vehicle and would like to know any issues you experts know of.

    Thanks.
    Zargar

    You need MB's WIS (Workshop Information System). Many countries have an official MB club that provides a membership card from Stuttgart which gives access to WIS, which is a Java app giving access to a full workshop manual split by car system and specific to your VIN.

    Canada is one of these countries, it seems: http://tinyurl.com/blp9u3q

    Looks like CAD60/year, pretty much the same as the UK Club. Well worth it IMO if you're doing your own work.

    :)

    Thanks so much for the reply.
    I will look into it. I also appreciate if you could let me know of any known or common issues for the W211 I should be aware of.

    Also need a sun roof assembly for it. Can't find it on ebay.

    Thanks again,
    Zargar

    Issues for an '04: rust on the rear arches (fronts are aluminium), glycol in the auto box due to Valeo radiator leak. If you have slats rather than mesh over the centre speaker on the dash, I believe that indicates somewhat less reliable robot-built wiring looms, but I don't know what the expected failures might be. Folding mirrors seem to be a wiring-related issue, though.

    In general, they're good solid cars though.
