    Very recently acquired a C180 Classic SE Komp 54 plate 65k

    Can anyone advise of this cars "W" type number

    The car is in good order with full service history but the automatic gear lever "surround indicator" plate which indicates the gears etc has come loose
    Is there a quick fix ?

    Hello and welcome,

    The "W" number is the first 3 numbers (not letters...) of your VIN - have a look in the corner of your windscreen (pax side outside)

    As for the gear lever surround does it come off completely? There might be some clips that can be clipped back in.

    Thank you for that

    The car had it's B service yesterday, and I mentioned to the service garage that there were "creaking" sounds from underneath .
    The garage sprayed the bushes and other relevant parts whilst it was up on the ramp with the wheels off - but the creaking still persists
    Any ideas as to where this may be coming from and is there any remedy ?

    Regards

    Thank you

    It does not appear to come off completely, but lifts up approx. 1/4 inch, it does appear that a clip on the drivers side has broken off

    The car had it's B service yesterday, and the service garage said that the whole assembly needs replacing a high cost - but are they correct, as |I was hoping that the surround only could be replaced

    There must be electrical connections underneath connecting the C and S switch on top

    Regards
