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.

2001 Mercedes-Benz C320 Problems
A dead battery can be caused by a faulty seat control module that does not properly shut down. Spilling liquids on the front seats can cause these modules to fail.
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.
The electrical connector at the automatic transmission may leak fluid. Over time leaking fluid could migrate through the wiring harness and damage the transmission control module. If that happens a new harness and control module may be necessary to correct the problem.

2001 Mercedes-Benz C320 Reviews
I purchased my vehicle, the Sport Model with 18" with 207,000 miles and it is a gem. Put in new Air Filters (2) and increased mileage substantially. Rear shocks were bad but I replaced them. So far though, the blower will not go off. It blows full force even if the temperature is turned to '0'. I have replaced every part associated including the control center and still the problem exists. I'm going to change the cabin filters and hope that does it before taking it to Mercedes. Despite the problem with the heat, I love this vehicle.
to maintain your benz is more than a normal car that is unless you or someone you know can work on it. its more to take somewhere and have a shop do it. i had to replace my lower control arm shop said 1400. i got online found the part for 550 thats all it cost because i replaced it myself so it will cost more if you can not do the repair youself buy haynes book from autozone it will show you how to take the whole car apart and put back together good luck
I just bought this used car and not aware that the passenger front seat was not locked in place. Only the wiring is connected and its very unstable. Is there locking mechanism that I can buy to secure this seat?
Today, when I got in the car to go to work, the front driver seat was all the way forward and would not move back. I had to drive all the way to work with the steering almost touching my chest. Tried everything and I can hera a click when I try to move the seat. I guess the motor went bad and there is no way to manually move the seat until I can replace it. Any ideas..?
