Hello everyone, new here and have a couple of questions that someone may be able to help me with,
I have a 2005 CLK W209 Cab, the SRS light is on in the dash and the drivers side seat belt no longer pushes the seat belt out to you, (passenger side still does) I have "visit workshop" on the dash also, do I really need too visit the MB garage or is there an easy fix that I can do myself to correct the error?
I don't mind getting my hands dirty,

the other question is where can I get details, download or otherwise, to remove a door card on my car, as there is an annoying rattle coming from behind the passenger side door card when I go over any bumps or uneven road surface, it is driving me mad, it sounds as if there is a loose bit of metal or rail of some sort, the window still works fine as does the door locks on that side, if I pull on the door pull/handle on the door card whilst driving it does stop the rattle so something has come loose and is against the inside of the door card, Anyone know what this could be or how to remove the door card?
Thanks

not sure how much the mechanicals changed - my first MB was a 500 SEC about 1986 vintage. The seat belt "forwarder" failed on the drivers side.

I took the lining off the back quarter panel (ie where the back door would have been had it existed) and could see a straight cut gear wheel with some teeth worn off which was key to the mechanism.

Naive as ever, I went to MB only to learn that I had to buy the whole mechanism. I took the defect wheel out & went to an engineering shop who cut me a new wheel (two in fact) which cost me something ridiculous like £10 (this was a few years back!!) - probably about £40 in tody's money.

Popped it in place & it served me perfectly for a year or so until I sold the car.

It's made of plastic so if the mechanism jams, it strips intentionally without damaging or burning anything out. Great concept if you were then able to buy a replacement. A bit like having a fuse blow only to have MB tell you you have to buy a complete fuse box 'cos you can't just buy a fuse.
