#840 of 886 Trim Fitting
Jun 27, 2009 (10:05 am)
The "headlining" surrounding the bonnet release under the dashboard in my C200K Coupe (2004) keeps dropping into the footwell. It is a shaped piece of trim backed with thick felt. Any ideas on how it can be fitted back in place I cannot see any obvious clips etc.
PS Members might like to know that Haynes have just published an updated guide on the Mercedes C Class (up to 07) No.4780.

Tx, just noticed your message (!) and cannot say that I have heard the whining "cat" noise from the a/c. Since you only hear it inside the car and not outside, probably not a belt slipping. Could be something w/the fan. Good luck.

Wow, I just bought my 1st Benz and would like to know how often it should be "tuned"? It's a 1998 and the previous owner took pretty good care of it and I would like to do the same. It currently has 145+k miles.

Did you ever figure out where the fuse box was located? I have the same problem only mine occurs now on a regular basis and I have to take it to the shop to have them fix it. I have read the manual and I can't seem to find the location. I would really appreciate any info you may have. Thanks, Misty

I was told the dealer invoice is $34,635.00. I was wondering how much lower can I expect to negotiate with the dealer? Thank you.
#845 of 886 Hood open and Windshield wipers
Sep 05, 2009 (8:05 pm)
Ok guys, this sounds like a real problem, but wanted to check out with you all first. Earlier this week my "HOOD OPEN" started coming on and will go away when the car is at about 25mph, I checked the hood and it is latched and not open. Now on friday morning I'm going to work and it started to rain, got to the stop light and the wipers stopped working, when I took my foot off break and got to about 10mph the wipers came back on and will only come on when going 10mph or faster and the hood light goes off at the same time the wipers start to work. Anyone else experience this? HELPPPP

How old is your car? I have heard that MB's will exhibit odd behavior like this with a weak battery. If your battery is at the 5-year or more stage it may be worth replacing it as it will let you down eventually anyway. I always change mine a bit ahead of schedule so I don't end up stuck somewhere looking for a jump or tow.

Thank you for the info. this is odd, I just noticed last week that the battery is starting to get weak. Its a 2004 C-240. I'll make plans to have a new battery installed this week.

I bought my old C-230 Yr. 97 on 2006, and don't know how old my (original MBenz) battery is. But i'm having some problems like that.
The turn signals and the washer+wipers control doesn't work (at a time) as well as the hazard ligths. I was thinking that could be the control switch or some control module somewhere in the car. Now the question is: are you shure is something wrong with the battery or that can be just part of the problem.

All I can say is that the electronics in these cars are sensitive to proper voltage and weak batteries can affect that. If you still have an original battery in a car of your vintage it would be wise to change it anyway.
