Cold air blowing from front vents but hot from the rear. Dealer unable to figure out why. Decided to check the Benz Forum for similar problem & found that out why. Will go to different Benz dealer or Independent to resolve issue.
No heat output from climate control system. Replacing the Digital Heater Control Valve solved the problem. It turned out the the original valve was completely frozen, it could even be manually manipulated to open.
