on the right hand side of the auto transmission there is a round cover that moves in and out when I push on it.how do I change this cover seal that is leaking.It looks like its held in with a circlip.

60litres covers only 300km.

sometimes the turn signals work and sometimes they dont. its like they have a mind of their own...

I experience a slight rough idling after starting the car and sometimes at a light. I just bought it from a repo dealer. it has 126,000 miles.

I also hear a grinding sound when I engage the alarm. Sounds like it coming from the side of the trunk.

Lastly, the rear passenger window on the drivers side does not roll down. Any help will be appreciated. Also looking for a great mechanic in the Van Nuys, CA area.


having starter problem will not crank over motor new battery no clicking at all

looking for an automotive school that fix cars

the srs light came on and wouldn't go out i don't know if it has something to do with a fuse, air bag or seat belt

My 97 c280 does not engage starter when key is turned. I've replaced tumble, repaced battery, locked and unlocked with original key and remote, jumped starter and it engaged but no start (key was in the run position)
This seems to be a common problem but I can't find anything that actually tells me how to fix it. I want to bypass everything possible so I can start the car. It's going on the for sale program as soon as it starts. I'm done!

Might this be power steering fluid ? If so How do I check the fluid level?

The climate setting (digital is good) The volume doesn't change between setting 3 and 4 and it clicks off and on!
I sense it could be the fusible link or fan resistor.


I heard a rattling sound when I would ride over bumps and now the car will not move 5 ft forward or backwards without jumping into gear and refusing to shift upwards to 2nd, 3rd, 4th....gear. It stops every few feet when trying to drive. It is not capable of being driven. This is a 2007 c280 mercedes-benz with 114,000 miles. We are the original owners.

i dont know what the lights mean help please

mode. I've taken to dealer and they are just trial and error, already cost 1k and no better. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

How much should the repair cost to replace ignition switch and recode ignition switch and 2 keys including parts. I was told $998.00. Seems kinda high.

when the engine is running the Speedometer tachometer and fuel gages do not work.
