  1. Tires for GL550

    X164 GL-Class
    I just replaced my tires. We opted for Michelin. I shopped around. All four cast around 1100. What we did was buy the front set then the back set. I have to say it rides so much better now. It literally feels like driving on clouded. As far as the price I live IB California so they love to stick...

    X164 GL-Class
    I have a 2007 GL 450 and had the comman unit replaced with a Xtron unit. Looks almost exactly like the original. This unit however has a back up camera, WiFi,Bluetooth, mirroring are able to dL apps from the play store. I have had it for two months now. I was able to keep the steering controls...

    Eric you can take out the 02 sencers from under the car. All you need are the right fittings to pull them out.

  6. master window switches

    X164 GL-Class
    Have you tried pooping the switch back into the spot again. They have one small grip on each side of the buttons that should keep it in place once pushed back into place. As far as the one stuck in the down position. Is the button stuck that way or is it just the window? Pictures would help. I...
  7. Help, I have Buying questions

  8. Help, I have Buying questions

    X164 GL-Class
    We have owned both the ML and GL. I would hands down go for the GL for long drives because of the air suspension alone. Definitely get the 08 or up versions. As well as the update engine. I have a GL 07 and it was one of the first ones off the line. I love the way the GL drives and it's safety...
  9. Bad auxillary battery GL 450 2012

    X164 GL-Class
    You can disconnect your battery and see if that resets the codes. You can also get a one scanner for about $30 that works with MB. That what I have and it also resets all the MB codes as well.
  10. Misfire 5 GL 450

    X164 GL-Class
    In trying to troubleshoot shoot my miss firing issues. Since they are all on the driver's side we decided to take two coil packs and swap them out to the other side then take two coil and spark plugs and swap them out to the other side to see what was the problem. The errors came back one the...

    X164 GL-Class
    Have you tried replacing the fuse. That did work for me. I still had the manifold error as it was prior to me swapping out the manifold. It could solve your problem it's on the passenger side door.
  12. 2007 GL450 Gas Cap issue?

    X164 GL-Class
    You might have gotten a defective one. It should feel tight when you turn. I had the same issue with mine OEM. Got an other OEM from eBay problem fixed. Hope this helps you out.
  13. Misfire 5 GL 450

    X164 GL-Class
    I have been having the same issue. Replaced the intake manifold, all spark plugs, coils, O2 censers. What codes are you getting. I have a P2004 and multiple misfire. I am at the same mind as you it must be one of the two. The prior owners did no upkeep on the car at all. I was told by the...
  14. 2007 GL450 liftgate

    X164 GL-Class
    It should be in your users manual. I remember a section on that. Have you tried swapping out the shockes. My lift gate had a similar problem in that I could use the fob to open it, however when I tried to use it manually it would go down but would not lock. Then would only unlock and not lift...
  15. Seat Upgrade ?

    X164 GL-Class
    I think it depends on what kind of seat you have in your GL. I love mine! They are heated, leather and have memory functions. I wold like to upgrade them for the ones that have the lumbar or massaging function that the newer GLs have. Do keep us updated.
