2005 Mercedes-Benz C240 4MATIC Problems

A repetitive clicking noise from behind the center area of the dash panel is usually caused by a broken stepper motor actuating arm. The actuating arm controls the direction of air flow in the climate control system. Disassembly of the center console will be required to access and change the broken arm with the updated, reinforced part.

The electrical connector at the automatic transmission may leak fluid into the wiring harness. If not repaired, the oil will migrate through the wiring harness and damage the transmission control module. A new harness and control module may be necessary to correct this problem.

Inside grab handles, the upholstery on the center console cover, and door trim panels can delaminate. Most commonly replacement of the affected part is necessary.

As I aged, I've dreamed of buying a car that would last and grow old with me. That's why I first purchased a Mercedes C240 in 2003. Within 18 months it had twenty-eight, yes 28 repairs, ranging from fuel gauge malfunctions to a myriad of other annoying problems; reluctantly, the service center was my second home. I traded it in, not because of the astonishing number of horrific breakdowns and r...
