    Hi, ive just picked up a clk 270 cdi today, while im well pleased with it I have a annoying problem.

    Everytime I pull off I get a warning the bonnet is open when it really aint, the garage said they will try sort it tomorrow but I'm wandering if there is anything I can do?

    Thanks for any help :)

    Check the switch located on the bottom of the bonnet catch, they pop out.

    As above, switch under O/S catch, usually pops back in OK.

    Is it just the plug thats supposed to pop back in?

    I tried pulling the plug off then pushed it back on but still nothing, ive just unplugged it now and seems to of gone but I want it sorted, could it just need a new switch?

    I told the garage today that I disconnected it and the problem went so they just said they'll fit a brand new latch.

    Case closed, thanks for pointing me in the right direction :thumbup: :)
