    Eric, Make it easy on us :-) Do you have a link for a reliable unit that we can buy and operate right out of the box for a good price? Holy Grail, right. 00' S-500 Mark
  2. Brake bleeding

    W220 S-Class
    The motive bleeder looks very similar but my problem is with the newly installed ABS unit. I can't get fluid out of the front caliper bleed screws. Something in the ABS unit is preventing fluid from going to the front brakes. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. Brake bleeding

    W220 S-Class
    ABS unit bleeding procedure After several weeks of the brake pedal getting softer and softer I decided to bleed the brakes. Rears went fine then when I was moving to the front I noticed a puddle under the ABS unit. It was leaking so I replaced the unit with one from a parts car. Went to...

  5. Bleeding ABS...Help

    W220 S-Class
    Just replaced the ABS unit on my S500 and can't finish bleeding the brakes. The rears bled fine with a pressure bleeder but when I open the front bleeders nothing comes out. Does anyone have the fix? Rather not pay for a tow to the dealer if at all possible. Thanks in advance.

    Did you ever figure this out. I have some similar symptoms. SAM?
  8. SAM (left) REPLACEMENT

    W220 S-Class
    It sounds like you have the removal figured out. I'm not sure about the codes although I do know the car will start up just fine. I put the SAM from my 01' S430 parts car into my 00' S500 and it started up normally. Let us know how things work out.
  9. SAM (left) REPLACEMENT

    W220 S-Class
    Sam replacement The hardest part to this job is getting the fuse box lid off and disconnecting the wire connections from the old SAM. Once done the SAM simply lifts out by pushing a small tab towards the front of the fuse box and lifting the SAM out. I have one from my parts car (2001 S430)...
  10. Arnott suspension anyone?

    W220 S-Class
    I'm about ready to bite the bullet on an Arnott conversion kit for my airmatic S500. Has anyone done this recently? Any updates on the ride quality? Does the discount still work? I know, I'm full of questions today.
  11. Help, rust issue, 2002 S430

    W220 S-Class
    Door replacement I have 4 good doors still left on my parts car. I can prabably meet or beat the cost of repair at a body shop and these doors have zero rust. Car has 41k miles. Uncle Sam has me overseas for a few more days but I'll try and respond to messages.

  16. Engine Temperature Gauge

    W220 S-Class
    Remove the drivers side air vent for access to the ic. You will be able to get your hand in and release the tab closest to you. Then with a tool or small hands you can get under the ic enough to release the tab on the other side.
  17. Question on purchase of catalytic converters

    W220 S-Class
    SBDAY. You're not that far away from me. I'll sell you the entire exhaust from my 2001 S430 parts car. Car has 41K and the exhaust is easier to replace as a whole unit than it is to weld in new cats. PM me.
  18. Rear sunshade swap

    W220 S-Class
    Thanks Eric. I had figured that it was some type of programming issue. I'll report back after I get this done.
  19. Rear sunshade swap

    W220 S-Class
    I just finished replacing the rear deck lid in my wifes car with that of my parts car. The new deck lid has an electric sunshade and my question is do I need to get the SAM reprogrammed to accept a sunshade signal. I ran the wiring for the sunshade from the parts car and swapped over the fuse...
  20. Rear Head Rest will not Lower

    W220 S-Class
    Very good news. These cars continue to surprise me and are quite fun to work on when things go well. The electric rear seat set up sounds quite different than mine.
