ABS programming error? - Cars can't move on ice

While no longer the season (It's 90 degrees here at the moment), I have been meaning to write this up for a while. I have now had exactly the same strange issue with both my old E280 4-Matic, and my...

Not here

My local MB workshop knows nothing about the campaign. Possibly US-only? My two engines are not affected in any case.

Cyclical vibration at 70mpk/120kph

I have recently started getting a cyclical vibration at speeds around the above. It repeats about every five seconds. As an obscure reference, it is similar to what you get in a twin-engined plane...

95 or above?

Hmm - 95 or above was written on my SL fuel filler cap. The engine changed in 95 to the 24-valve head. Perhaps that dropped the octane rating. However, my new CLK500 is also marked 95 or above. Is...

Winter tires on CLK500

Getting some interesting advice on this from my MB dealer and an independent. Both agree. The standard setup on the CLK500 is 225-45 tires on 17x7.5" rims at the front and 245-40 on 17x8.5" wheels at...

Numerous seal changes and other tricks

There are a number of threads on this. Searching for "leak" in the SL forum may be enough.

I used to have a few drips on one side, at the front. Here is what I learned:

Well, the XK8 is a step below the SL from a price perspective too. They are now very reliable, and the V8 engine is really nice. Personally, I don't like the way they look. The rear overhang was...

Delta between speedometer and cruise control

Both my new CLK500 and my new E320 have small differences between the speedometer and the cruise control. Is there any way the individual owner can correct this, or is it a dealer-only job?

Well, the old rods are supposed to be bent just before the threads. I thought mine were damaged too, but then saw that the bends on the two rods were mirror images of each other. In any case, I...

A tip I got from the garage is the following:

Even though you may have screwed the new rods in "to the same depth", it may still not be perfect. One check is to make sure that the roof edge is...

And the answer, from another site, is that there is no minimum waiting time before waxing a car for the first time.

CD-ROM is very poor

Before you rush out to buy it, I forgot to mention that the quality of the CD-ROM is very poor. It is better than nothing, but that is about it.

Yes, absolutely all the parts are essential. There are also rubber rings that have to be replaced if in bad condition. They are not on the list, and mine were fine.

Yes, the web link solved the problem. Apparently the MB kit is OEM HomeLink, as the programming is identical. My Normstahl door has a "teach" button (Lernen in the photo below) that only stays on for...

Seems to depend on your location. When in South Africa recently, I noticed that fully half of all cars are white. SLs no exception.
