SOURCE: alternator repair 88 mercedes e class

There are 2 types of Alt for your car .The lower Amp has a Plug in the high Amp has a screw in for electrical connection.
There are 2 bolts to hold the Alt in the engine. Need to locate them first and losen them up.
Losening the tension is a bit tricky. There is 1 large bolt I don't remember size maybe 17mm between the compressor and the power steering pump.
Need to loose it first before attemping the top bold near the Power steering reservoir, other wise you will strip the thread and this is a lot of work to replace.
After you done all of that in order, you can completely take off the 2 bolt at the Alt. Pull the top bolt first so the ALt can be Pivoted to the bottom one, then one hand to hold the Alt while the other to pull off the bottom bolt.
Put in the new Alt in reverve order.
Good luck

SOURCE: My 2000 Mercedes Benz S500 is dead- electronic key does not

It's not that unusual for a battery to fail that soon, and the "no lights, no nothing" says that it's the battery again. Your best bet at this point is to pull the battery and take it to the point of purchase for testing. They should either replace it under warranty or charge it for you. After you replace the battery you should have the charging/electrical system checked for possible shorts or power drains.

How do i adjust my wipers to park correctly on my 2000 mercedes c230 kompressor.

If the linkage is ok and not the cause of the mis-seating, there is a cover / cap type bit that covers the very end of the wiper arm, where it bolts to the linkage.

Remove this cap / cover and there will be a nut of something like 10, 12, 13mm. Loosen this (or take off) and then you can move the wiper arm on the splined stud until it sits correctly.

Ensure you bolt it back up to a similar torque and that you test for operation and the field of view it clears, before you drive. It also takes a minimal amount of movement of the arm on the stud, I tiny spline makes lots of difference at the blade end, so be gentle and ensure splines are seated correctly.

My mercedes E430: 2001 will not start. When I turn the ignition . all of the panel lights come on but the radio the horn , the sunroof and the locks dont work

1st you need to try using the spare key to eliminate a key not communicating properly with the 'electronic ignition switch'. the end of the key has little red window on it that needs to be clean. these keys send a lot of data thru to that iginiotn switch which is a major part of the anti-theft system in your car.

Need to open trunk, battery dead and no mechanical key. 2001 Mercedes S-class.

I am hoping you don't have the doors locked.
Open the hood and there will be a HOT point (jump station) under the hood. It will usually be housed in red plastic. Jump start it there and all should be a go from there.
Good luck!

I think I blew a fuse on cd player in trunk... so now no radio, cd, navigation.... which fuse under hood. need a chart on a mercedes 2000 430 s

OR you could use a test light to check them all. Ground the test light (clip the alligator end to clean/exposed metal) and touch the tip to the test point on each of the fuses (the little exposed metal part on top of the fuse). Both sides should light (with the key on). If only one side makes the light light, then there is no current passing through the fuse, and it's blown.

Trunk qill not open

Your trunk lock actuator is probably in valet mode. Take the mechanical key out of your smart key(should have a release button on the bottom of the key which will allow you to slide the hidden mechanical key out of the plastic housing) insert it into your trunk lock actuator and turn to change your function of trunk actuator. In the valet mode the trunk does not respond to your central locking or release button commands. Your owner's manual will tell you about these features. I hope I have been helpful

Locked out my 2000 S430

there is a mechanical key that slides out of your smart key. I beleive the release tab is at the base of the smart key. You can then put the mechanical key in the tumbler and unlock your vehicle.
