2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG Problems
Due to wear of mechanical parts in the control head, the buttons on
temperature control assemblies work erratically or not at all. These
control heads need to be replaced for this concern or when the display
screen starts to fade out.
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) modulator assembly may fail due to dirty brake fluid. Our technicians recommend a complete brake system flush every two years in order to help prevent this problem.
Cup holders break easily, especially if sticky liquids are spilled into the cup holder mechanism.
A vibration felt through the center floor of the vehicle can be caused by driveshaft flex discs, which crack and shred, causing excessive driveshaft movement. Not repairing these can cause damage to the driveshaft center support bearing, or, in the worst case scenario, damage to the transmission or differential.
