  1. W251 Fob Issues

    W251 R-Class
    Hi, I had a very similar situation at the time of purchase of my 2nd hand R500. It was the related wireless key module that sits in the decky, on the right-hand-side. This module being exposed to humidity, its contacts get corroded, and slowly by slowly, the doors no longer respond to both...
  2. R Class Rear Suspension Air Bag Replacement

    W251 R-Class
    Hi bodell, Thank you, that was just what I needed! (I already read about many R owners doing it in a French-speaking forum but wasn't sure how to insert the product. I will give it a try with the football adapter :) BTW, for all the non-believers, many users in that French forum reported...
  3. 2006 R500 Utility Sport

    W251 R-Class
    Hi, yes I think it is quite important. In some situations, the battery needs to expel some of its liquid, as far as I understand. The hose will take it to the road. If you remove it, the liquid will instead spill inside, thus corroding the metal, and/or worse, generate unhealthy emanations...
  4. Sleeping in a long wheelbase R class

    W251 R-Class
    absolutely! I'm 178cm and I perfectly fit without squeezing.
  5. Power seat base tilt working on one side only

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Thank you for that, I read the whole thread a couple of times and found it very interesting, although my issue is somewhat different: My R500 is experiencing the same symptom (only one side moving), although from a different origin: from what I could see, the worm gear is totally fine, it is the...
  6. Driver's seat cushion adjustment binding

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Great job and explanations, thank you! My R500 is experiencing the same symptom (only one side moving), although from a different origin: from what I could see, the worm gear is totally fine, it is the cable that got damaged (not bore). Many threads of the cable came out, and now it won't fit...
  7. Power seat base tilt working on one side only

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Thank you. So it's actually a 2 component glue. And what do you glue? At the moment, both cables do not even enter because they are messed up. Not sure what I should glue and how...?
  8. Power seat base tilt working on one side only

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Hi all, I'm facing the exact same issue with spoilt cables... Did anyone manage to order only the cables? Rest, I didn't get how you guys fixed it, what is a "JB weld" actually?

    W251 R-Class
    Amazing, well done!
  10. SDS Service

    R230 SL-Class
    Hi, that's nice to hear! I've been in touch with Mandy about getting one too, although I haven't made the step until now, not being sure I will know how to use it. Anyone knows which model is best to get in case I go for it? Can it be used for other brands, such as my wife's Nissan?
  11. We know what this is because we RTFM, but everyone else?

    W251 R-Class
    never noticed it. I don't get where it is in your picture, anyone can explain where I can find it?
  12. yet another DRL mod

    W251 R-Class
    Nice, do they work instead of daylights and if so, how did you manage the connections?
  13. Broke my mirror :(

    W251 R-Class
    Hi Zax, Many thanks once again... I live near Biel, which is situated between Bern and Basel (closer from Bern). Glarus is indeed beautiful, lovely landscape and mountains. I'm now going to hunt for a replacement. From my first search, I see it's not too easy to find the same colour, so I was...
  14. Broke my mirror :(

    W251 R-Class
    Hi Zax, Many thanks for your complete reply. I was actually hoping it'd be the same as for W164. That shall surely ease the hunt for a replacement ;) Yes, I would appreciate to receive the parts numbers; it's the right hand-side that got hit. I might as well look for a 2nd hand entire mirror...
  15. 2006-2008 R500, worth it?

    W251 R-Class
    I got me one year ago an R500 5.5l engine, model 2008 (or 2007, not sure) with 150K. So far I only had an issue with the steering wheel liquid which is leaking very slowly. I had to refill it 3 times already as it would start making noise when I turned. Last time, instead of refilling, I added a...
  16. Broke my mirror :(

    W251 R-Class
    Hi, A few days ago, I nearly touched a large bus while crossing at a narrow mountain road. Luckily I avoided it, but my right hand-side mirror got it by a wooden stick... Now both the mirror and the outside glass are broken. The mechanic is all good, all I need is to replace the mirror and the...
  17. Small vent parts, WIS, Rear pads/rotors...

    W251 R-Class
    Hi, I bought this Viseeo adaptor, but my R500 doesn't have an MMI port. Anyone knows if it's possible to install one?
  18. 2012 R350 Bluetooth Audio question

    W251 R-Class
    From my extended research, the Viseeo is a possible solution that should work. You will need either the VMA3000 model (in case there's an MDI plug in your glovebox), or a VMA1000 in case you got an iPod plug in your glovebox. This should allow a good sound quality + controls over the steering...
  19. KEYLESS GO Problems

    W251 R-Class
    I also read somewhere that the sensors in the doors need to be replaced sometimes in situations like this or similar. I take the chance to expose another keyless Go problem of mine: two months ago, the keyless go suddenly stopped working. That is, no more door opening automatically when I...
