Lightbulb 2005 C230 Sport Kompressor owner with A LOT of probs.

HI, my name is Danny. I reside in Glendale, Arizona USA. I have owned a used 2005 C230 Sport Kompressor Sedan 6 speed supercharged 4 cylinder going on 3 years now and as of now I regret buying a Mercedes Benz. I have had better luck with Hyundai's. It drove fine until just outside of warranty.

I hope meeting new members I can get some advice and learn some tricks of the trade so I can fix most of the problems myself.

I am a custom car builder and custom air brush/painter.
I have built some big block Pontiac motors as well as small block Ford motors. But I NEVER thought I might have to tear into my Mercedes Benz.

- As of now I am missfiring in Cylinder #2. I tool it to the dealership and I was told that the valve seats in combustion chamber #2 failed and I have lost compression in that cylinder due to this. Compression tests and flow tests confirmed this. #1, #3, #4, cylinders are good, but I am told that the head will have to come off and I will have to get it rebuilt. OF course I was 6000 miles outside my warranty!! And I can't pass emissions!!!
The stealership wants $4000 to do the work, but the economy is bad and of course money is tight. I am sure I can do it myself. But I need some inside info and advice.

- The steering column lock is busted as well, I went to adjust it one day and POP it busted.

- The rear pop-up shade in the rear window is stuck in the up position and it sux driving at night.

- The top portion of the passenger side door handle busted and I have to be careful when closing that door.

- The driver side window motor failed and the window just drops and I had to open up the panel and prop the window up


I hope to find some knowledgeable friends here.

i have the same problem on my 05 w203 about the rear pop up shades being stuck at the up posistion. what i did was holding the "down" option and have a friend gently guide it down. it works for me now w/o the extra help but i think the motor is stuck on the inside. are you knowledgable about electronics or motor/controllers? you can investigate this problem..its pretty simple.
