Just bought a 2004 320clk
With 82000 miles and full mb service history
Car seems to be running fine and bodywork is excellent
However it has command 2 fitted
Is there Anything i can get to upgrade command 2 unit for Bluetooth and dab radio
Or do I need to replace it with an aftermarket unit to get these features

Thanks Mike
This is my first Mercedes and must admit was a bit apprehensive about buying it but must admit I drove it up from the south of england to Edinburgh without any effort and achieved mid 30s mileage wise trying to stick to speed limits on the motorway

John

Lived for about 15 years down in Stourbridge but managed to escape back to Scotland in 2001

The CLK is being used as a second car and I
want to keep it original as possible so quite happy to put up with FM radio and 6 disc changer but the discs for the sat nav are dated 2014 so don't know if I can more up to date discs for it

Also discovered it has a phone kit fitted for an old Nokia phone i will contact command on line to see if they do an adaptor for an I phone

Looking under additional works in service book I can see an Autobox service at 66K in 2014 and it had rear differential oil change at 82K at its last service in Dec 2017 "not sure if autobox service would include ATF and Filter change"
I would note there is nothing in service book under additional works for atf and filter change when it was serviced at 46000 in 2009

looking at service book how often do you change Poly-V-belt as would note this has never been done yet is this something I should get checked at next service

not sure about the polybelt , but I suspect the answer is when it shows age/wear related issues .
With regards to the auto box stuff , what colour is the tab on top of the ATF dipstick tube ? If it is black then it's not been done . If the auto box service was by MB then they would have done the filter as well as ATF .

Hi Wighty

Check the service history and all the invoices for the car and the autobox has had gearbox oil and atf filter changed at 34000 miles in 2008 and then again at 66000 miles in 2014
Must admit gearbox is silky smooth ( I have not ventured under the bonnet too check for the tab colour yet)
The only minor issues that I have is
Heated seat on passenger side is not working (drivers side is working fine) will look to see if there is a loose connection somewhere or could beva fault with the switch as it does not light up when pushed.
Also the headlamp washers do not seem to work when I push the button (i have tried with the headlamps on and engine switched on)
I don't know if anyone can point me in the right direction on how to fix these minor items

For the heated seats I’m not sure if drivers and passengers are on the same circuit so I’d check fuses first , if not as you say check for broken wires .
Headlamp washers IIRC are counted on a number of windscreen scoots- I think 1 in 5? My SL was anyway , the 63 is different

Good news with the gearbox with 2 ATF changes , she's a keeper then ! As John says above 5 presses on the wipers , with headlights on , engine running (and I think doors shut ?) .
If you are buying service stuff/parts , give MB Grangemouth a ring , mention the forum for a healthy discount .

Yes I know I work away from home a lot and just got back on friday

I have now lifted the bonnet and checked it out but nothing to do apart from top up screen washer bottle:)
The car had a big service by previous owner in December and it sat in a car showroom until the car was sold to my self
So the car is definitely a keeper
Just need to get that passenger heated seat working as all the wiring underneath the seat seems intact so i think it could be the switch that is faulty as it does not light up
