  1. Engine oil in Coolant Resevoir

    W203 C-Class
    Thanks Rudeney and Alswag for your advice. I also suspected the head gasket to be the culprit. I didn't know if there was another way for oil to seep into the coolant system. Fortunately, there is no "mayo" under the engine oil cap or on the dipstick. When I saw the mayo under the coolant...
  2. Engine oil in Coolant Resevoir

    W203 C-Class
    2006, C230, W203, M272 2.5 litre v-6. Help, I just found about 3 tablespoons of engine oil in my coolant reservoir. I drained and checked the engine oil and all appears ok, no brown foamy oil which would indicate coolant getting into the crankcase. Coolant level was ok. Any ideas where this...
  3. 06 C230 Sport Fog Light Assy's

    W203 C-Class
    Hi Everyone, Help Please! I have a 2006 C230 Sport, with a broken fog light. A rock punched it 's way through the glass. I've searched online for a replacement, I found several fog lights that are supposed to fit my car. Can anyone tell me the replacement part number for this fog light...
  4. Replace my transmission '06 C230

    W203 C-Class
    The transmission in my 2006 C230 Sport with 92,000 miles is beginning to slip. When I step on the gas to pass, the tach jumps to redline, and the car barely accelerates. My indy mechanic says to not change the trans fluid, as it will cause the clutch pack to grab and tear loose the friction...
  5. ATF dipstick question

    W203 C-Class
    This question leads me to another question. How do you check the transmission fluid level on a 2006, C230 with the 2.5L V6, 6 speed auto transmission? We don't have a dipstick for that!
  6. Replacement Radio

    W203 C-Class
    Hi Everyone, Has anyone upgraded their Radio/CD player to a newer modern audio system? I see pics of Benz's with nice touch screen radios, but the two local audio installers won't touch the C230 because of the CAN BUS system. They all say it's better to keep the radio stock (and lose a...
  7. 07 C230 Sport 6spd manual brake question

    W203 C-Class
    Has anyone installed the Brembo Big Brake kit into their C230's? I'm going to need new pads in a few thousand more miles, and I was thinking of replacing the rotors, and calipers, as well as installing Stainless Steel brake lines. Any thoughts on this, is it worth it? We're talking about...
  8. Door Panel Removal

    W203 C-Class
    The original cad plated screws were a regular philips head screw. The replacement screws that came with the new handle were a "washer head" design, which of course allows for a larger bearing surface. When I installed the new washer head screws and pull handle, it seems like the handle has...
  9. Door Panel Removal

    W203 C-Class
    Hi Everyone, thanks for all the advice. I finally got around to fixing my broken door pull handle. i5mast was right, you do have to remove the door panel to replace the handle in a 2005 C230. There are two small cad plated screws that have to be removed from behind the door panel. Also...
  10. Door Panel Removal

    W203 C-Class
    I yanked too hard on my passenger side door handle and broke the handle. Does anyone know how to remove the door panel? Do I need any special tools? Thanks!
  11. WTB stock rear rim for 2006 c230.

    W203 C-Class
    I don't think anyone will just "give" you a $300 wheel. Have you considered having the wheel re-conditioned? There are companies that will come to your car's location, and re-condition the wheel while you wait. I've seen severly bent and scratched wheels look like new.
