  1. Tumble Flap Actuator Replacement

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Glad it helped. I am still awaiting the day my 550 does the same thing, but so far, so good (knock on wood). After I replaced the balance shaft on the CLK 350, we sold the car to a neighbor who absolutely loves it. We actually had a bidding war as potential buyers knew of the balance shaft...
  2. Stuck in Dyno Mode after connecting iCarsoft Scanner

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Just to update... I initiated and ran the road test on the MBII. Problem is solved,ABS and DSC are operating again. I must have inadvertently started this test when I first got the scanner without realizing it and exited without completing it. Thank you for the suggestion Rodney.
  3. Stuck in Dyno Mode after connecting iCarsoft Scanner

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Thank you for this suggestion, I will look into this on the iCarsoft and try running the drive test if possible.
  4. Stuck in Dyno Mode after connecting iCarsoft Scanner

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Oddly enough I can turn DSC on & off (no effect of course), so no help there. The red ABS light stays on, apparently confirming that in fact it is not functioning.
  5. Stuck in Dyno Mode after connecting iCarsoft Scanner

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    I just went back through my emails to iCarsoft & found the "undefined" code: C1410, LF Traction Control Valve, Circuit Failure. This code will not clear using the iCarsoft scanner. This code/issue did not exist prior to connecting the scanner.
  6. Stuck in Dyno Mode after connecting iCarsoft Scanner

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Well, a few months ago I bought a new toy (iCarsoft MBII), I connected it to the car and started going through the menus and features, even recalibrated the throttle actuator which gave a good result. My issue now is that after disconnecting the scanner, the dash displayed a warning that the...
  7. Intermittent Radio, CD changer

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    I thought I'd update this thread for the archives. Long story, short, it turned out to be the CDC fuse in the trunk that was bad... not blown. I have no idea why the entire fuse block was flopping around loose in its enclosure but it is now secured. The 10A fuse for the CDC appeared to be...
  8. Intermittent Radio, CD changer

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    I will check that out. Currently the COMAND system does not see the CDC, it does not show on the audio menu. As a further irritant, I went to check the fuse block in the trunk and found the entire block was loose & just leaning against other components in there. Wondering what issue the PO...
  9. Intermittent Radio, CD changer

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Thank you for the reply & I will have a look there as well as a couple of other fuses in the dash.
  10. Intermittent Radio, CD changer

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    As the title says... When I hit a bump the radio sound goes off, display stays on. When it 'recovers' from this I hear the CD changer shuffling the CD's, once complete, I get sound on the radio again... until the next bump. The issue has gotten much worse and results in no radio or CD's until...
  11. CLK 350 2008

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    2008 CLK 350 has a dip stick from the factory.
  12. Sickly sticky

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    91% rubbing alcohol & cotton balls worked very well on both a stone & black colored piece on my CLK's. No color rubbed off on the stone-colored piece.
  13. Purchase wind screen?

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    With the windows up the screen works very well at freeway speeds. If you try to use it on the freeway with the windows down, the screen will blow down eventually & isn't terrible effective used in that manner anyway.
  14. 2004 CLK55 Oil Change Nightmare

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    You seem to have dodged a bullet Andy, hope your luck holds out.
  15. Transmission Saga

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Agreed. After doing the balance shaft job on my 350, I at least was able to pull the 550 alongside and see how those harnesses were properly routed. Made a PITA task much easier.
  16. please tell me is my balance shaft gone

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Make sure the vacuum hose to the sensor isn't split or loose. Ask me how I know... :D
  17. Transmission Saga

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Think of all the time and money you would have saved had you looked at the flex plate initially... :) Sounds like you caught some other potential issues in any case. I had a situation once where I had to pull the heads on an old 4.1 L Cadillac engine, the cast iron head/AL block POS they...
  18. Remote lock doesn't beep

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    Probably had something to do with the battery change then. Mine was chirping 3 times prior to a visit to a dealership for some warranty work. When they returned the car it only chirped once when unlocking. They had no clue...
  19. Remote lock doesn't beep

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    I may have stumbled upon a fix for this... I replaced my battery (CLK 550) and was going through the setup in the Comand screen, system menu. There is a "tone" tab on the screen. I opened that and activated both alert options just out of curiosity. The next day I locked my car and got 3...
  20. Tool/part# needed, MB Torx Flex Socket

    C209/A209 CLK-Class
    On the M272/273 engines there is a reference to an extended flex torx socket & part# in Alldata that is used to access those 4 bolts i am referring to. In any case I may have found something that will work from Snap-On. The MB dealer wants $250 for a socket set that includes the one referenced...
