Hi all,
Please could somebody tell me how i reset my C180 W203 02reg engine warning light, the reason is that ive changed my power steering belt which i removed the air filter casing & when refitting the clips gave me dramas to the airflow pipe so i removed to make it easier to connect, i started the car to check belt but before i replaced airflow pipe which i think has unsettled the airflow which has giving me the warning light.. I look forward to a speedy answer as im not sure if this is good to drive... thx to all

If you didn't mess anything up, the CEL should reset by itself after a couple of on/off cycles. It might take up to 5 or 6 but I think it is safe to drive based on what you told us.

You can also take it to a McParts store and they will reset it for you for free.
