    Hi everyone.
    I'm new to this forum, mainly as I'm looking at buying my first Mercedes: a CLK 320, W208, X reg, 93k. I'm taking it for a test drive on Sat but I got in it the other day and started it up (engine sounds like new).

    Anyway. I noticed that having got in and closed the drivers door, the seat electrics weren't working. It wouldn't move at all in any direction.
    However, I opened and closed the door and they started working just fine. This may sound a stupid thing to waste my first post on but should I be worried? Could this be a sign that all is not well - or just the cold weather?

    Otherwise the car looks fine apart from tiny paint bobbling at top of near side door pillar.

    Any advice gratefully received - can't afford to spend money on a crock. :neutral:

    You can move the seats with the door open on MBs or with the key in at least 1.

    Its a nice touch if you have a passenger that requires a different set up as you can fit them in without have to lean across within the car, so that car is fine in this respect.

    Thanks

    Thanks Malcolm - I guess I'm just "risk averse" having been stung before. Thanks for the welcome - here's to many happy years and miles of CLK ownership :)
