2008 CL 600
I never asked him to drop his bumper and take a picture just for me. He already said he will be opening his front bumper and another member already told him he will have to disconnect the radar sensors from the front bumper. Since he was already going to do all that, I asked for a favor if possible. I asked very politely and nobody has to do anything for me. He could take weeks, even months I never set a time limit. Never at any point did I say I have a problem with him not taking a picture or helping me. I wasn't trying to hijack the thread I just wanted to post once to ask for the picture. Other members started replying and it became longer than I thought. Now we are all here to help each other, and I will help anyone with their problems even him. I will go the extra mile to help any members and you will see that in the future. Again I never expected anything from anyone, all I did was ask and if nobody wants to or can help then that's ok. The CL W216 thread is completely dead I won't bother there. I am actually a very old member but lost my login info since I went out of the country for a few years and came back. In the old days the late Eric helped me so much. He will be greatly missed.Frankly, you're asking a LOT to expect someone to drop their bumper to take a picture for you, and complain when they don't get right to it.I guess some people are not interested in other's problems and only care about their own. Me on the other hand will try to help any members out there as you can see. If anyone has access to this connector it would be much appreciated if they could take a picture, since the dealer will not help at all.
I understand your frustration. I can see that you have given your time to help other members. But frankly, since you are asking about a CL in the W221 forum, I think you have had a lot of help as well. Yes, there are many similarities between the cars - but let's not slam the members for not jumping right to it. Many of us have day jobs (some, very long day jobs), and dropping the bumper to answer right away just won't stand all that high in our priorities.
I do hope you get the photos you need.
