Re: 2000 G500 Europa Transmission Problem

Get the codes read. Very likely that they will point to the shifter. However, the more data you have the better. Junk yards are full of this exact shifter.

Re: 300GDT SWB

It shifts well now? I'm starting to sense a faint 2->3 shift slip on our E300, maybe I should prep for a spring replacement.

Don't worry about the shifter faults. I have yet to hook to an early 722.6 shifter that didn't whine about those faults. They don't seem to affect performance at all.

Re: Professional side mirrors

Pretty sure you can drop a wire from your newly drilled mounting hole and then reach in through the nearby speaker hole to continue the routing.

Re: 1997 G320 warnings - RELEASE (P) BRAKE / ASR / ABS

As you say, the parking brake switch grounds the line. It is possible that the wire is being shorted to ground elsewhere on it's way to the cluster. Might want to pull the connector off of that switch and verify that it stays high all of the time. It probably has +5V or +12V on it. From the wiring d...

FS: W463 factory cargo mat

From my G. Has been rolled up in the garage for the last 8 years or so. Needs a scrubbing on the visible side. On the back side there is a side to side crack that is exposed when rolled up. The crack does not go through to the visible side. Does not affect its fit or function, just full disclosure. ...

Re: W460 Elektrischer Geist

You mentioned cleaning the ground. There are lots of ground points. Specifically, I think there is one behind the instrument cluster that could well be your problem.

Re: 33 inch tyres on w460

...I was getting just under 20mpg. Now only get 15mpg if I drive conservatively. If you haven't corrected the speedo then there are two factors to consider: 1) the odometer is underreporting by 16.5%. So 15mpg is really 17.5mpg. 2) the speedo is also underreporting. So, when you are going 65, it on...

Re: Removing door seat adjust switch

No one has answered. I don't actually know.
Here is what I would try.
1) a suction cup pull in the upper right corner.
2) it looks like the window switch pack can be lifted out, then you could see the back of the seat switch pack and any fasteners.

Nevermind the "I don't give a damn photos". Grey, black and walnut wood tone just clash.

Re: Remote or driver's door not unlocking doors

Too bad. We ought to have a spare to ship around for testing. The system is rather opaque.
