Services

I have used my local garage (not mercedes) to service my car for the last 2 years , I now would like Mecedes to reset the service warning on the dash.
Do you think I may have a problem with this if I ask them to do the next service ?
The warning text is exceeded service B by 7,000 miles

There should be instructions in your owners manual on how to reset the service reminder. If not, do a search in your car's forum and there should be posts on how to reset the thing.

On my car it's quite simple to reset it: I go to the Miles/Km screen on the menu/dash readout and scroll to the Service screen and then pust the Reset button in the lower right of the insturment cluster. Since I don't know what car you are talking about that may not be YOUR solution, but good luck!

BTW: Welcome a-board!


Don't believe everything you think
