    Hi Dan
    Yes I need to know about removing the liner etc to expose to actual light assembly. There is a pint of water sloshing around inside the light. Should add that previous owner had chrome taillight trim installed and I am wondering if the lights were drilled to accomodate the installation thereby allowinf water to enter the assembly due to a poor fit.

PLease explain assembly? do you mean the trunk lining etc? often water in the trunk / boot is often caused by the rear light clusters having a poor seal or the boot rubber beaing sat incorrectly.

please calirify and I will get right back to you.

Check spark plugs and eventually replace air filter.
Is it an injection or carburetor model?
If it injections it is probably a dirty injector or a computer problem.
If it is carb you need just to regulate carburetor.

Hi ihave a mercedes e300 1999 the engine tempeture is 100 evenn after i replaced the water pump ,radiator ,fan and fixed the block

IS the radiotor boiling or is it only the temp showing the indication. If so the meter or the thermocouple could be defective. other wise you need to check your engine tuning/mistiming / that needs to be set right to the manufacturers setting., Have you got this done at an authorised centre or was it a trial/ error basis to replace all these items. I suggest you show it to a reputed / authorised centre for the right diagonosis, right OE parts .. please dont waste money.. I hope my advise is helpful. Good day.

1995 e300 d auto transmision

This is not that unusual for Mercedes cars of these years.
Try having the transmission oil filter replaced,and fresh fluid put in.
This may help some, but this may be something which comes with wear and tear.
Unless of course you are willing to spend a lot of money to replace the transmission.
