  1. My brake lights are not working

    W210 E-Class
    Wrote it all up http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w210-e-class/2588001-ets-abs-light-cracked-solder-joint.html
  2. W210 wet underhood electronics

    W210 E-Class
    Car still ran horribly after assembly, this was unexpected. Dousing the MAF with MAF cleaner did the trick, and the car just smogged well. Looking back, I am glad that the MAF acted, up, else I would not have seen all that water.

    Ok, found the answer here: http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w210-e-class/1507344-help-removing-n10-1-module-2.html#post4046396 First leave the metal lever alone. The grey connector - the visible part is a sliding locking mechanism. Slide it up. Then back out the connector. Then lift the metal...

    Got fans on the boards now. Once I get the last one removed, will dry and crc that one also. Thanks for all the input.

    So the BCM is not coming out - see video - How do I remove this component? It seems stuck.
  6. Hope it isn't totaled

    W210 E-Class
    I have a 97 with the M104 and 722.6 - great car. The electrics are wet (look for post), looking to nurse the car back on the road. It just passed 260k, and is running great otherwise.
  7. W210 wet underhood electronics

    W210 E-Class
    My car has been sitting for a couple weeks, and started it up the other day, ran horribly. high idle, bucking. So left it parked, as was busy this week. Tonight got some time in the garage and recalled folks that had trans fluid in the ecu etc, well I have water and corrosion. I removed most...
  8. THE LAST REAL MERCEDES

    W210 E-Class
    And I have a W210 picked up at 184k miles - mind its our first Mercedes - and my wife loves it! That was almost 6 years ago. I just fixed a loose solder joint tonight and while the abs plastic is getting brittle, the car is doing quite well. I do wish for a W140 still - but would have to sell...
  9. ETS/ABS Light from cracked solder joint - fixed

    W210 E-Class
    thanks :) Yes - the broken solder joint was the problem. The codes turned off (since battery was disconnected during the work) and when I parked the car, brake lights still worked. This part is pretty unrepairable, so I felt lucky the one solder joint that broke is the only one accessible.
  10. ETS/ABS Light from cracked solder joint - fixed

    W210 E-Class
    Needed a long thin soldering tip - since car was down and wife at a church event, I was carless. But I have a mill :)
  11. ETS/ABS Light from cracked solder joint - fixed

    W210 E-Class
    .. and if need to replace this bulb - it slides out easily.
  12. ETS/ABS Light from cracked solder joint - fixed

    W210 E-Class
    So the work to repair this took a couple hours and glad I have a garage now to work near.. Flux was absolutely needed to make this work - once the flux was on the solder joint, a few seconds of heat reflowed it.
  13. ETS/ABS Light from cracked solder joint - fixed

    W210 E-Class
    My ETS/ABS light has been on, and kept on seeing "El Traction" message also - then my friend told me brake lights were not working - agh!! I replaced the BLS - no fix, no brake lights.. Arg. This could be a time/cash sink. So I went to a local indy shop in San Jose (Star Auto) for a diag -...
  14. My brake lights are not working

    W210 E-Class
    I had another issue - took to shop (indy) and they said a wire was loose - wiggling the brake fuse made it work. So after some discovery, removed the headlight switch module and found the solder joint was cracked - luckily it was accessible to solder and that fixed it for me. Also the codes...
  15. How long will my car live, 175,000 miles ?

    W210 E50 AMG, E55 AMG
    My car had 184k WHEN I BOUGHT IT. Like others have said - keep the fluids tip-top, do the boring maint. items, find/fix any weaknesses and dependinf on how hard you are on it, it should serve you for years to come. Mind you it also depends on your commitment to the car. My car needed a new...
  16. Cool w123 video

    W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    I met this guy @ Peets Coffee near San Jose - 240D, very clean, loves his car - and a college student! and I mean he really digs on his non-gasser.. Enjoy the vid:
  17. Aux fan rebuild possible?

    W210 E-Class
    Late update - the fan pulley on one side sheared off and the noise was the "washer" from the pulley rubbing on the cooler behind it (AC?). There is a nice circle. The cheapo unit from amazon ($106 shipped) was easy to install and working so far. Today dealing with possible dead fuel pump.
  18. Aux fan rebuild possible?

    W210 E-Class
    Talk of timing - we had to take a emergency trip to Victorville last night. I am thankful to God that the thermostat failed when it did. Engine temp was fine all the way down yesterday and driving around today. Also got 26.5 MPG - 70MPH with AC on.
  19. Aux fan rebuild possible?

    W210 E-Class
    Changed the thermostat - that fixed it. Test drive with ac cranked and 3000 rpm in second - could not get car above 90. Fan air, radiator, lower hose was warm as it should be - where it was not yesterday. Never had a stuck thermostat before. Btw the old one was made in Germany and getting it...
  20. Aux fan rebuild possible?

    W210 E-Class
    Off, the clutch turns 1/2 turn unless spun hard - that got one turn. Alos re aux fans were running- but noisy as Noted before. I'll check the fan clutch with car running. would be great to make it serviceable - thanks for the link.
