Yet another new Merc owner!
I'm Mik from the UK, and have been lured into MB ownership by a blue whale...or more accurately a 380SEL, although it's only 3 inches shorter than a blue whale. ;-)
The ride is fantastic and looks like quite a mile-muncher. As ever, there's a small catalogue of little faults that need fixing but then, that's part of the fun. I think I'm going to be doing quite a bit of forum searching and Googling before all is fixed.
First on the list - how to open the bonnet/hood. I can see the release handle. And I can see the cable. Unfortunately, the handle is only attached to the cable and swinging free! I've given it a damn good pull in a few directions with little success.
Well, I'd better get on looking through past threads, as this must've cropped up a few times before.
