dealer says there is a break in the fiber optic cable in the trunk that feeds the radio. Mouse ate it so the dealer says. Need video to show me how to replace it. Cable is pt# 211 540 23 32

first nothing was wrong but now it just......

When the engine is cold, the glow plug light on the dash will not come on when the key is turned to the "ON" position. If I try turning it further, to the "START" position, the engine will not turn over. The glow plug light must come on and then go out, in order for the ignition to crank the engine and start. The only way to start it then is to leave the key in the on position for about 2 to 3 minutes. I then can turn it off an on, until the glow plug light comes on. Once that lights up and goes out, the engine will start. Once the engine is warmed up, the engine can be shut off and started under the normal procedure. I replaced the glow plugs with the Berar 5v plugs recommended. This has been an intermittent problem that seems to be getting worse in the colder weather. Could the be a faulty glow plug, relay switch or is there something else that I should be looking at?


We are looking at a Mercedes Benz E320 CDI (2006 model), which has been in New York for past 6 years. We are concerned it maybe rusted in areas not visible to us.Do all cars in New York get rusted?

Thanks in advance


My car was in a rear end collision and the check engine light came on. The car has been fixed and the check engine light is still on. They told me that the filter needed replacing so they did that; $300 later and the check engine light is still on. Any suggestions?

The car had a rear end collision and the battery was replaced. Exhaust was messed up too. Now the control panel only comes on about half the time when I start the car; I'm told that this is the normal power conservation mode when the battery is dying, but that is new. Then they told me it was the ignition and they replaced that for $1300 and it did not fix the problem. I read here about control panels needed to be replaced. Could that have been caused by the accident and what would that cost?

The dashboard drawer next to the glove compartment does not close/retract

Display message is: "Drive to workshop without changing gear". However, I can't even select a gear so that I can drive it!

Where are after market batteries for this car sold?

I changed Trans fluid and now engine will not run above 2400 RPM . Car ran fine before fluid change . Now all dash lights come on , engine goes on and off rapidly in time with the dash lights

When I accelerate hard to about 35 mph and then abruptly let off on the accelerator, there is a hard clunk in the front left wheel area. It does it every time I try. If I accelerate hard but do not let off abruptly on the accelerator, later when I slightly brake there can be a clunk or two like I ran over a branch with my left tire.

How can I take out the little coin drawer on my E320 CDI

I have a trunk leak issue....specifically once it rains or after washing the car a large amount of water gets trapped between the layers of the truck deck. It is noticable two ways...first, you can hear it "shoshing" when it opens and closes. Secondly, the water tends to find its way out around the latch as well as the seams. The seams being along the edge where the two layers are attached. Where and how does this water enter the cavity of the trunk deck? I have a concern for rust developing over time.

Where is the motor oil filter located on the MB E320 2006 CDI?
