Question about 2007 Mercedes-Benz C230 Sedan
Mileage: 79,000. The radio/stereo antenna is integrated in my back windshield, and I am having problems with static. The dealer suggested re-tinting since the tint put on by the first owner was a "metallic-type" tint it would have an effect. I paid $300 to re-tint with a non-metallic tint. My radio still has static. I have contacted the dealer once again and now they say there is something wrong with the wiring in the radio. Can you help me?
The process of installing the tint involves using some type of knives or x-acto knife. While installing the tint, the wiring embedded in the windshield gets cut, and the radio won't get proper signal thereafter. Your dealer probably owes you a new back windshield...I know, it happened to me...

We doubt there is anything wrong with the wiring in your radio. It has been our experience that after market window tint can cause static and poor reception in vehicles that have radio antennas built into the rear window. Removing the tint improves the radio reception but still leaves something to be desired, especially on AM.
