  1. Grinding

    R170 SLK-Class
    Well, I purchased the car last week. I'm happy to report that it is now on the road. I honestly don't know how this happened. I purchased the car cheaply enough, to where I would still come out ok even if it needed a new transmission. So I towed the car home and got it up on ramps. It took me a...

    R170 SLK-Class
    Ok, went and actually got in the car today. Little different than what was explained to me. The car will not move in any gear, drive or reverse, but it doesn't actually grind until you go to put it back into park. It will grind until you kill the engine. When you start it back up though, the...

    R170 SLK-Class
    Already getting the car pretty cheap to accommodate for the bad trans. From the way he explains it though he was just driving down the highway one day and it lost drive completely. The trans had been fine up until this point. Probably going to purchase the car anyway because of the price. Just...

    R170 SLK-Class
    Hey everyone, former sl and ml owner here. Currently own a gl. I am currently looking at purchasing a 99 slk230. The guy that's selling the car doesn't want much for the car because it has a transmission issue. It is an automatic but when you try to select a gear like drive or reverse it will...
  5. Trailer Lamp messages

    X164 GL-Class
    The rear SAM in my gl450 was damaged causing the false warning. I ended up having to purchase a new one and having my indy program it. In the mean time though I had my indy go into the computer and disable the trailer lights to where it thought it didn't come with the factory towing package...
  6. Gl450 Intake Manifold replacement?

    X164 GL-Class
    Usually the flaps aren't what the problem is. It's actually the plastic rod that operates the flaps. When you take the engine cover off there is a little pod on the front of the intake. There will be a plastic rod coming out of the bottom of this pod. That plastic rod will be broken so the flaps...
  7. Airmatic Problem

    X164 GL-Class
    Weird problem. I've had my gl now for almost a year. Six months ago I replaced the two front strut assemblies with arnott replacements because the front was letting down over the course of about three days. That fixed the issue. Anyway, six months later the first really cold night we had hear in...
  8. Trailer Lamp messages

    X164 GL-Class
    New update. I moved the fuse panel out of the way but didn't really see anything out of the ordinary. Everything looked like it was in it's place. I tested the trailer plug under the vehicle and the plug is getting voltage. I tested it with my test light. Brake lights, turn signals, tail lights...
  9. Trailer Lamp messages

    X164 GL-Class
    Thanks pjw, I think you're onto something. Fuse 72 is not present in my fuse box. Neither is the wire and plug that clip onto the side of the fuse box. The chart says that 72 is the trailer hitch socket which I take to mean the socket for the lights. Looks like tomorrow I'm taking the fuse box...

    X164 GL-Class
    New to the GL so any help here is really appreciated. Just picked up a 2010 gl450. It's got the factory towing package. I'm getting error messages in the information center that say the trailer lights are all out. The problem is that I don't have a trailer hooked up to it. Apparently something...

    It's a late model with the projector beams headlights. There are separate bulbs for high and low beam.
  12. Bi-xenon headlights

    W163 M-Class
    Hey guys, got a quick question. I purchased a set of oem xenon headlights for my wife's ml350 from craigslist. Of course they were plug and play. I took it to my local indy to have them programmed. All is good however, the high beams don't work. The bulbs look good. There's no connection getting...
  13. Cassette Player

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    I will try this. Do you know if there is atutorial on how to do this. I tried with a regular cassette and it did the same thing. Cassette and radio both play at the same time. The cassette is just a little louder. Thanks
  14. Cassette Player

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Just checking to see if anyone has had or even heard of this problem. 93 400e. Car still has the original radio. When I put a cassette in you can hear it very plainly but you can also still hear the radio as if it were playing in the background. I would even be using the cassette player if it...
  15. Windshield Wiper timing

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Hi everyone. I have tried searching for this without any luck. I had to completely disassemble my wiper mechanism. The wiper would rotate but would not go out and retract. Long story short, the toothed track on the bottom half of the mechanism that the main gear runs along was destroyed. I got a...
  16. A/C compressor diagnosis help

    W124 V8 400E / E420 / 500E / E500 / E60
    Here's the order you need to go in if you plan to actually keep this car. Replace the upper and lower wiring harnesses if that hasn't already been done. From the look of your pictures I'd say that's a negative. If you can't handle this on your own then get help or find someone that can. It's...
  17. R129 Bowden Cable ' Kickdown Adjustment ' Photos

    R129 SL-Class
    Sorry to resurrect a thread this old but I am having a problem with the adjustment. When I adjust the throttle cable enough to make the needles line up the car idles at 1100 rpms. If I put the throttle adjustment about where it's supposed to be then the needles are about a half inch apart. Is...
  18. Knockdown cable

    W124 V8 400E / E420 / 500E / E500 / E60
    Made a spacer to put in between the two just to test if this was the problem. Man, it's a completely different car. Before you could be cruising at 60 and floor it and it wouldn't even shift down. Now it does. It's completely different. I've never heard this engine rev past probably 2200 rpm's...
  19. Knockdown cable

    W124 V8 400E / E420 / 500E / E500 / E60
    Here is a picture of the plastic needles in my car. They're supposed to be aligned but they're not. The throttle cable is attached to one of them and the kickdown cable is attached to the other. From what the pdf says you have to adjust the throttle cable to take up the slack in the kickdown...
  20. Knockdown cable

    W124 V8 400E / E420 / 500E / E500 / E60
    Car isn't in limp mode. Car will shift down and go if you FLOOR it enough to hit the switch under the pedal. Other than this though the transmission will not down shift if you need it too. I just need to know if there's a way to adjust the kickdown cable on the v8 cars. Engine has plenty of...
