S-Class soft closing door problem


C180 Chris

Hi All,
I have a new problem with my soft close feature, it has stopped working on all doors and i have also noticed a strange smell too, the pump under the rear seat seems to be running almost all of the time (even with the key out)
This has only happened after i had the door front door card off today.
Could the adjustment on the door release handle have anything to do with it as it is about the only thing i needed to take off to get the door card off??
Seems too co incidental to have just happened at the same time as i was in digging around not to be related!
All the best,
