Question about 2004 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz E Class

1 Answer

We have bought a 2010 mercedes E class with a factory fitted fold away tow bar. We have now been told that the only electrics we can get is a single electrics only good enough to tow a trailer. We bought the car to tow our caravan so it's looking like this very expensive car is totally useless. Can any one help? Mercedes Benz have been totally useless.

I assume its a new W212 E-Class ? Do you need a 7 pin or 13 pin socket. Either way adapters are available from MB and these have to be programmed at the dealer so the CAN system identify's what the new accessory is.
I would check with a different dealer if you are not getting anywhere, or a reputable tow bar fitter.

2005 mercedes c class will not start


Dealer only ,encrypted software ,start playing with it and?????? if anything goes wrong then factory immobilisor cuts in and it has to be connected to the internet via factory and it will not be released to start unless the bar code on the spare part box has been read by the operator with the bar code reader thats on the computer .This part is then recognised as the relevant fault code from the diagnostic check and with a genuine part for that fault code the computer releases the factory immobilisor.SO MUCH FOR THE AMERICAN FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT

Remove a wing mirror cover to fit indicator lens on the wing mirror for a mercedes c220 cdi 2003.


If you have electric folding mirrors fold them in, if not fold the mirror back against the spring (not easy as it is quite strong). Looking from the front, to the mirror cover side of the spindle on which the mirror pivots if you pull it forward, you will see the end of the main mirror body which has a groove it it. At the end of the groove there is a springclip which can prised up using a flat bladed screwdriver. It is easiest to place the blade under the clip and twist the clip to release it. Once fully released the cover can then be withdrawn. Refitting is the reverse of the above but if the cover does not automatically clip in place you may have to force it back with the screwdriver.
