CL 55 AMG 2001

Can anyone help with two annoying issues I have?

1. AM radio reception is poor. Where is the antenna located, and is there any way to improve reception?

2. Is there a way to modify the power window controls to allow automatic closing of the windows? The auto-down feature works, but the auto-up control stops about midway up. I understand this is a child safety feature, but there must be a way to modify it to close all the way?

thanks...

AM radio, people still use that......

As for the windows, they should go up all the way, most likely they stop due to heavy resistance in the dew rakers or other part of the window.

I have become what I resisted!
I can't believe I am saying this, I can't be an old grouch can I??

Please, update your profile to tell use what kind of car you have, options, and mods.

There are many radio options out there.

Is it time 4 me to go out to the MB pasture? I have become them, 'old timer'.

Changing your radio probably won't better the reception. The aerials in built into the windscreen. Why? Because it still gets great FM reception and AM in almost non existent in Europe, so no one cares over there.

You mean the rear window? I'm not familiar with the CL55 but I thought it had a "fixed roof and rear window".

True that AM is hardly used in Europe, I don't know what sort of quality to expect but it would not be equal to FM anyway.

Isn't the metal film based window tint normally the cause for poor radio reception, I guess it should effect both FM and AM though.
