It appears that the metal flange is not aligned properly with the plastic ring beneath it. The metal flange is spring-loaded so it is difficult to simply rotate the flange back into position. What will work is if you grab each of the flange tabs with needle-nose pliers and raise them so that the pressure on the plastic ring is relieved, and then rotate the plastic ring into the proper position and then release the flange tabs. Since three hands are required for this, you will need an assistant to rotate the plastic ring into position.

    Ciscomadero, you are a star! Looking at the gas cap, I could see a spring and sort of guessed what needed to be done, but would not have had the guts to actually try it out had I not read your very clear and specific instructions. Thank you and it worked beautifully and in seconds!

My 03 mercedes c230 kompressor doesn't have a gas cap would that make It die eventually took it to a shop and they said because I don have it it does have the pressure to make the gas flow to the other...


fuel systems are sealed systems and so if you do not have a cap or the incorrect cap the CPU sensors will pick up on that and cause all sorts of problems with engine performance. I fail to see why you did not fit a cap immediately in the shop so that the codes could be read immediately to determine if any other faults are present.

If there are only partial images and some are blank, the unit itself is failing and requires replacement. There is no "fix" for this kind of display using LCDs. Try Silverstar recycling in CA and can be found on the internet. They carry all kinds of good stuff for Mercedes/Porsche at resonible prices and will ship.

Engine check light is on what i can i do


Most of the time Check engine light will come due to Gas and gas cap issues. If you ran out of gas and gas lost pressure it will bring the light on. Make sure to fill take with premium (91 octane) gas and make sure gas cap is closed completely. loose gas cap will cause the engine light to come on. If after doing this you still get the engine light warning, take to authorized mercedez deal for code check.
