    Hi all..new to this forum but look's like i'm going to spent good time's here:D
    First would like to apologise for my 'good' english and hope you will perfectly understand me?!Just bought few weeks ago an clk200 convertible insurance write off cat D,damage to rear bumper,reinforcement bar,and brake lights...all of this has been fixed and looks in good shape except on small/big SRS lights on dashboard.Had the car on tester and it was showing error to front seat belt and rear seat belt click in plastic thing..something with resistence to high.I've been told by the mechanic that i need to change the seat belt in order to have it fix it(550 new seatbelts and another 200 labour):cool: my stupid question is if there is another way to fix this?or a place where i can get cheaper seat belts?
    Also when the car is in D and hold the brake it does have a small vibrate and rpm's drop with about 50-100..is it normal?cause when it's in N can't feel any vibrate and rpm rise with 50-100..just asking cause my old 02 reg audi a4 had no vibrate when in D
    sorry for this long newbie story:Oops:

    The rpm dropping in D is normal,,, the engine mounts could be tired.

    The SRS faults are often just poor connections on the connector on the front seat rail at the front

    Some of the seat belt pre tensioners may have gone off.

    yep you probably right about engine mounts but with srs i think is more than just poor connections

    Just a star test but if you look at the rear buckles, look to see if they have sunk into or below the cushion. Need to see what's required before I can quote. :)

    sure, but I expect that the buckle you need. Do all the belts extend freely?

    The front seat belt stalks may have gone too.
