electronic timing issue could be a stretched timing belt

Hi the steering pump uses a belt to drive it, when this gets stretched it will slip, oil can also get on the belt causing it to slip, so check the belt, make sure it is tight and free from oil, also make sure the power pump reservoir has oil at the same time

Need to find a vacuum hose leak and replace the hose. Look for the plastic hoses and the black rubber adaptors. Over year, these are cracking causing a leak hence there is a problem. When you put in gear, the engine carry a load but there is no engine compensation that is why it stalls. The engine only knows when it senses through the vacuum loop. Good luck.

not a solution, but exactly the same happened to me this morning. Boot motor jammed partly open and both number plate lights came up as not working on computer, very odd as all worked perfect yesterday. Did you fix yours? Thanks

The brake sensor does many jobs. It senses air in the brake lines, electrical problems with the anti lock system, any other systems associated with the brakes. Have your brake system bled and all systems checked before changing the sensors.

Erasing the error does not resolve the faulty component.

The transmission is protecting itself from further damage - you need to establish what codes are being stored in the transmission computer, when it goes into emergency (limp mode).

So, have the transmission computer scanned by your local Mercedes dealership, for the relevant codes and you will identify the actual faulty electrical components related to the transmission.

If no codes are stored, then it is likely you have a mechanical issue inside your transmission.

Only when you fix the fault, will you achieve a permanent solution.

you have to replace door lock completely , there is small plastic gear on electric motor which moves locking mechanism and seems that gear is broken, but it is not available as separate part.

most important is to deactivate SBC control unit with computer to start work, otherwise you can damage system, then to change pads for front is just 13mm spanner and for rear - T40 torx.

What dose it do, as the radiator and all pipes have to be changed and was the convertor taken off the box when you took the box out of the other car and if so was it drained and was the bands checked out that the Forwards and reverse plus the correct oil to be used when filled.
1st jack up and put in Park can you turn the wheels NO,, good now select D can you turn the wheels now
Yes so the bands inside could be your problem.
Let me know how you go Ron
