Hi All - My car is first registered in October 2003 - FMBSH - It will not start (can bus issue) - Am I correct in thinking I can phone Mobilo and get them to look at it / recover it to a local Mercedes dealer 23 miles away? Would it matter that I have some covers off inside where I have been trying to trace the issue or shoud I put it all back together first :) ?

you are right, the only issue being that you are stuck with MB main dealer then, not cheap!
as above, I'd stick the covers back on.....

I'd definitely put the covers back and feign ignorance

That’s what you pay for :D

Thanks all - Yeah, I'll do that - My MB dealer is really good - They were cheaper than my local indie and my other nearest MB dealer on the last major service by quite a margin and they even gave me more discount on the day - I'd feel better if they looked at this issue as I do not have a really good local MB Indie I can trust...
I'll update later.

Small update - Mobilo sent out the RAC who scanned the car and came up with less on their scanners than the MBII scanner I have - Very friendly chap though, and his reckoning was starter motor (even though I get no relay clicking or dimming etc) - To be honest, I would be happy if he's right. Car then got taken away this morning on a flatbed truck to MB. I will wait and see what they say - So thank goodness for Mobilo so far.
