Thanks, J.P.
Thanks ... Us Aussies are only too happy to help the Canadians if we can.

It doesn't take long to flatten the battery on these cars if you leave the key on.
A workmate of mine had a son who hooked up the battery to an unregulated fast charger. The rear SAM, EIS, ECU Computer and many other items were all fried.

I decided to DIY the transmission fluid/filter change this weekend based on your video which really cleared up questions..

All went well enough but I held off putting in shell 134 (red) as my 2011c300 luxury had dark blue/green fluid with a green overflow tube compared to the white (longer) one that came with the filter..

So question is 236.14 or 236.15 and white or green overflow...?

My understanding is with the 2011 it's green overflow pipe and 236.15. The 236.15 is a blue/green colour to differentiate it from the 236.14

Cheers, Pat
I've only just seen this post.

You should not have a problem getting a battery as they're standard sizes. My C320CDI uses a DIN85L MF as does my Vito Van. I think your C200 uses the same battery.

Thanks Scott, i've used your videos to remove my lcd display.

Im still having the problem after buying a new lcd display, i can see it work and turn on, but no lighting. I've read several info on now looking to replace the display command board (the unit that connects to the lcd display screen). What are your thoughts? have you heard of this?

Im going crazy trying to find someone to sell me the lcd unit witout the whole retractable unit, but havent had any luck.

thanks!
