S500 1999/2000 AMG

Hi All.
New to BenzWorld from Ulladulla, Australia.
Not a lot of switched on Benz mechanics here.
Have just purchased a S500 1999/2000 what a great car!
Couple of little problems that have me stumped?
Back right hand door doesn't centrally lock, all the lights flash and button goes down but you can still open it. Is this a common fault?
Left hand door closes but doesn't vacuum seal?
Left hand mirror does everything but left to right easy fix?
Hope someone can guide me in the right direction?

You may have a w140 or a W220 what is your VIN if it starts with WDB220 then it's a W220. Check the W220 forum, to my knowledge the lock is not common you could try resetting the PSE fuse first. This may also help with the door closing, if you are referring to the soft close. Soft close is a common problem with age as the plastic caps crack and can be purchased from eBay.

The mirror problem could be the wires if you have the mirrors close when the car is locked, could also be a bad DCM and will need to be checked further.
Good luck.
