#1 of 42 Garage door opener
Mar 13, 2001 (7:14 pm)
We just purchased a 1997 E320 last week and have been trying to program our Genie intelicode garage door opener to the car's remote. After calling Genie, they faxed us with directions that did not work on our car. They told us that if the car was an early 1997 model, it may not work. Has anyone encountered this problem or have any advice as to how we can program it into our car. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Susan, just try this regardless of what the instructions say.
1. Push the "training button" located under a little door on the opener itself (the unit that is hung from your garage ceiling). A light may come on when you push the button.
2. Then push the hand-held garage door opener button that makes the door go up and down while you are holding the hand-held opener 2-3 inches from the button you are "training" in the car.
3. Hold both buttons (on garage door opener and in car) until the light on the visor (or rear view mirror, depending on the model) starts to blink quickly. That should do it. Try a couple of times if it does not work the first time.
#3 of 42 Larger wheels and tires...
Aug 16, 2001 (8:05 am)
I own a 2001 E430 4Matic. It came with 17" stock aluminum 5 slot wheels and Pirelli P7000 SuperSport P235/45/17 94W M+S tires.
I would like to put larger chrome wheels and tires on this vehicle. My idea was to use the stock wheels and tires for the winter and the new ones for the summer.
What is the largest wheel and tire combination I can use?
Who has already done this?
My concern is that I do not want to get incorrect readings from my speedometer/odometer/on-board navigation...
Thanks for any input!

i would go to 18 inch max since anything bigger than that is very expensive. try the tirerack.com people. they are great and have sample pic of your car with the big wheels on it.
#6 of 42 Wiper blades
Jul 25, 2002 (10:33 am)
I just went to replace my wiper blades for the first time for my E320 (2002). The blades did not really last that long(6 months) with not much use. Does anyone have any suggestions for replacing them with something other than the normal replacement wiper blade. Something that might last a little longer?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Not sure they last any longer, but I switched to a standard 24" blade a year or two ago and they work just fine. You won't even notice the 1" less coverage. The good news is the blade refills are available at any auto store for less than half the MB price.. You will have to initally buy the entire blade assembly, usually around $7-8 dollars; then it's just the refills from then on..
#9 of 42 cell phone for 1999 E 320
Dec 24, 2002 (10:44 am)
The factory Phone was analogue that year and has since been rendered obsolete, Is there an aftermarket digital phone that can be adapted to the original setup. What did all the original owners do when the cell phone companies went digital. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm in the same boat sculptordean. I'm not sure but I think MB has a new phone that will retro fit. Motorola V60 or something like that. Check it out!
