  1. Engin service Block Drain Plug Leak

    W202 C-Class
    Hey Guys, Happy New Year. I had replied to some posts about doing a ''correct'' factory service procedure for the coolant flush. I did this coolant flush back in late November 2012. WHen I tried to crack the engine drain plug, I was never successful releasing it to release coolant from the...
  2. Coolant level?

    W202 C-Class
    Hey Guys, Had a chance to do this coolant flush. Well, the rad side petcock valve was actually black not red & very hard to open. I opened up the lower rad hose instead with an awkward clamp screwed in such a way, I had to fish a vise-grip wrench to loosen the screw. One problem: I tried to...
  3. Coolant level?

    W202 C-Class
    Found the Engine Coolant Drain Plug I thought I would share my efforts for this procedure. Well I found it and now just waiting for the penetrating oil to soak through. I found it by taking off some of the air filter duct work & creeping a light down in the space. I also used a mirror to locate...
  4. Coolant level?

    W202 C-Class
    I haven;t had a check yet as I have been busy with my other car (98 Acura Integra GS). I had a chance to look for this thing, kinda have a general idea of where to look. However access from underneath seems blocked from other parts. I was thinking if we did this we could use some extensions and...
  5. Coolant level?

    W202 C-Class
    Yeah that damn drain plug is on a hard access location. I mean they should make easier without having to flex your body in a weird way hoping to get some torque. I still can't find this thing even when I used a mirror to get an idea of what I'm dealing with. Access from underneath seems possible...

    W202 C-Class
    Never heard of waterless coolant. I think the more fancy they get, the more problems we'll have.

  8. 1995 c280 blinker not working

    W202 C-Class
    Same issue but I find that when the temperature outside drops, it will act intermittently. Cleaning it is good. You may want to clean it with electric contact cleaner ( Can someone give their advice on this?) Also a member named Dec wrote a post on this with the combo-relay not working. You...

    MB Safety & Testimonials
    whatever he was drinking, he messed up so now we have a dead princess & a lot of conspiracy theories. I still believe that the doctors killed her & all this was planned. The Royals seemed like it was another rainy day
  10. W202 CLUSTER FIX !!! READ!!

    W202 C-Class
    if your cluster failed, when you got a new (used) one did it read your odometer reading from before OR did it reset to 0km or 0 miles when you plugged it back in?

  12. W202 CLUSTER FIX !!! READ!!

    W202 C-Class
    I was searching for something on sticking dial needles and came across this. SO basically isopropl alcohol and Q-tips will fix this? SOme say remove the wheel, some say leave it. I will attempt this and hopefully I can fix this. This is happening now when the weather is colder. Also, the...

  15. Coolant level?

    W202 C-Class
    thanks members: a few questions: to Glenmore: I know that I can skip this step with the drain plug but to get ALL the water out/ old coolant out isn't this the correct way. I know that the plug may cause problems for me however I will look at first and see if i can budge it. Any sealant on the...
  16. C230 Sunroof clip thingy broken

    W202 C36 AMG, C43 AMG
    Ouch! How did this thing break? You could try this adhesive called Q- Bond. It works very well with plastic and i'm sure it can work with metal.
  17. Coolant level?

    W202 C-Class
    I know this is an old thread & the questions are dumb, I was looking into doing the coolant flush. I know that we have engine block drain on the right side of the engine. Anyone disagree with this? The resevoir tank is where we put the coolant. I am going to use the MB coolant. My question is...

  19. Water Intrusion into Fuse/Relay Box?

    W202 C-Class
    If water is entering the fuse box, the fuse box has a gasket seal to prevent moisture from getting in. I'm not sure what has happened since you wrote the last post but take a look and see if water did get in. I would not use any electronics until the fuse box area is dry.
