    Hi,
    I have a 2011 e350 cab and the aircap is stuck in the down position and no lights illuninate on the switch.
    I took it to the dealership yesterday who plugged it into the diagnostics. They say the actuator motor thinks the aircap is open eventjough its closed hence not working. And only fix is a replacement unit at 1400 quid.
    Any ideas if this can be fixed without a replacement and 1400 ?
    Thanks

    Personally I wouldn't take it to the dealership, try having it looked at by an Indy, i have used MB Centre for years and trust their advise

    Has anyone got a wiring diagram so i can unplug the aircap and apply voltage to the aircap connector to try to raise/ lower it manually in an attempt to reset the position so the ecu recognises it closed rather than open?

    I have an aircap stuck in the open position...it goes down but then opens again.....annoying......I am currently trying to find out how to reset it....but, when trying to find this out I ran across a video on You Tube on how to remove the aircap "replace air cap"......it shows the connector in the overhead console etc......it may help.
