2001 Mercedes-Benz C240 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2001 Mercedes-Benz C240

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 engine may develop a stalling and/or no start condition due to a failed crankshaft position sensor.

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.
