H Guys and Girls,

i have just bought my first Mercedes(2010 c250 sport cdi saloon) which I really like, the parking brake is taking a bit of getting used to!

once I have get the fog light sorted and a detailing session I will add some pics.my friends say I have ocd as I like my cars to be spotless!!!

Morning Dave and welcome.

The parking brake does take a bit of getting used to and they tend not to get used too often. Mine never did on my last one and only does on my current one as it's now electronic/automatic.

As for the fog light, I'd try your local dealer first (Harrogate?) as they may just surprise you with price. If not at least they'll give you the correct part number.

We like pictures, and there are lots of people on here who tend to be a bit obsessive with their cars. :D

Hi and welcome. Nice part of the country - I used to live near Great Ayton a fair few years ago and a friend lived near Inglebrough. Lovely.

Welcome, it’s always good to try MB Grangemouth for your fog light too, 01324 686002 speak to Steven and have your VIN number handy then you’re guaranteed the correct part. They are forum supporters so will discount nicely.
As with Daveenty the parking brake is a bit ‘odd’ but mine also is only ever used if I park on a slope and that’s not often!

Welcome. There are many Mercs in North Yorkshire but their owners seem not to frequent this forum too much.

Depends which side of Helmsley you are but a further option, as far as service and repairs are concerned, is Steve Magson at SM Autocare in Pickering. Steve has been working on Mercs since he was an apprentice in the 70's and set up on his own when the dealership in Pickering closed. Probably much better than travelling to York or Harrogate, depending on your actual location. Here is a link to SM Autocare http://www.smautocare.co.uk/

MB Harrogate and MB York were both taken over ny JCT600 group a couple of years or so ago and standards seem to have slipped if the rumour mill is to be believed, so try them for your fog lamp or have a word with Grangemouth as suggested. Richard Hollings used to be the service manager at MB Harrogate (and York?) before setting up on his own.
