MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Broken AMG Front Bumper Diffuser Posts

The 3 front bumper supports that hold the diffuser (tow hook cover piece that snaps in and then you zip tie) are broken so I need to repair them. I figure Ive only got one shot since Id be filling the channel on the back side of these supports with some type of epoxy or bonding material. In searching the various threads for repairing OEM bumpers I have not been able to locate a reference to a specific

make it over sized before you begin the fiberglass work. Now understand that by eventually I mean that it lasted a little over a year and this was in Boston--snow slop salt and very long winters. In a milder climate it might last longer. Make sure you use the special flexible Bondoglaze. Regular Bondo will crack when the bumper flexes. Heres an instructional I did about 6 years ago.

MERCEDES BENZ CLK II 209 Front tire width

I wanted to know what the max width a W209 would allow (without rubbing of course) I have two sets of wheels but both are 225. Anyone have any experience on this Your feedback would be appreciated Thanks in advance

I just got rims and tires and fit is exact within only a centimeter to spare. I did not lower it but by the looks of it...I literally only have a quarter of an inch or less from the front shocks rubbing on the tires. On the back...I think I could of gotten away with 265 widths but not sure

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 HELP How do you remove the side markers on the front bumper

Hey guys I ordered the body colored side markers from and they are going to arrive in 2-days. You know the ones that go on the front bumper that are amber. Question how do I remove the current side markers. I previously owned an E-Class and there was an opening in the wheel well to pop out the side markers. How do you do this on a W208 Dont tell me I have to remove the bumper.

This is what ThrillKill posted on an earlier post on the same topic. I havent done it myself..... Getting it out of the fender is a whore too. Use a quarter wrapped in thin cloth. It pops up then slide back then out. I didnt put one of them back in good enough and it popped out on the expy and marked up my fender. Be careful.

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 clk door glass caution

Heres one yall need to hear about. One nite last week I was in a fellas driveway talkin about the price of flip flops in Angola and POW my door glass vaporized. I had been in the act of opening the door and grabbed the window to stop the door swing or something like you all have done before and my ring very lightly contacted the edge of the glass. That contact caused the window to break into a million

So I had the glass replaced twice Dont want to go into it except to say if the glass repair says they know how to work on a benz hook em up to a lie detector. Anyway they finally got the correct glass but couldnt adjust properly for the wind noise. Wind noise just happens to be a search that reveals considerable angst among clk owners. So to help some of my fellow owners here is a little primer on

off to look down at the screw and it wasis a kinda support brace that as mentioned can move the window closer or further and not up or down. I have still not corrected the windo noise without the putting the window down thing. Thanks.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Merc C32 or W210 E55 or w211 E500 or CLK

Hi all I currently have an E46 330Ci and Im interested in selling it so I can get something with more power but keeping the luxury and looks. Im thinking either a C32 a W210 E55 a W211 E500 or even a Merc clk500 or clk55 an Audi S4 B6 or BMW E34 M3. Ive noticed that most M3s have most likely been thrashed and are a little older looking. The W210 E55 also looks its age but I drove one and it feels and

experiences with the E46. Also a spectacular car. Increased HPtorque considerably over the E36. Arguably nicer looking than the chassis previous. Interior upgrades and so on. However one important thing to note is that crash test standards were changed in 2000. They are a lot stricter and most 90s cars didnt pass the new rigorous standard. So the E46 should also be a lot safer. Regarding the mercedes

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 CLK 320 vs. CLK55 AMG brake rotors

Question... My clk 320 needs new brake pads and rotors soon something within this month. And i wanted to know if it was possible to swap in the AMG rotors and calipers from a clk55 AMG onto my clk 320 without any modifications or problems. Please let me know if its as simple as switching them out or if theyre completely different and its not possible. Thanks guys.

Haha thats hilarious that the AMG calipers are actually brembo. Makes sense though. Anyway Im kind of in the same boat as yall are... My break pad wear sensor went off about a month ago and I replaced the front pads but since my rotors were scraped so many times by the past owner there was a wicked lip (About a quarter inch deep) ground all around the caliper... I also made a boo boo by putting auto

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 smashed clk 55

Hey guys my wife put my clk55 through a pole and up a guard rail. The insurance company is looking at the car right now but I went over to the body shop to assess the damage and see if I want to buy the car back and fix it myself if it is totaled. After looking at the damage it is not too bad so far I am waiting to see if the body structure is bent or if it is just suspension components. I was planning

What year is the car Depends on the insurance company. The age plays a factor but if the damage is only 80% of the wholesale value theyll fix it - esp when your deductable is SO high. IF the car is deemed unsafe to drive after a repair or the unibody is really trashed then theyll dump it. Also if the rear quarters are damaged badly or if you have been rear ended they seem to total it because of the

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Farewell to my CLK430 [totalled]

Its a sad week... Ill have to say goodbye to my clk430. Was driving from Houston to Dallas and a pickup truck rear ended me. I wanted it fixed but the insurance said it would cost too much and are calling it a total loss. I loved this car.. sleek reliable and fun to drive.

That is my fear. Love my clk it is in prestine condition but if you are rear ended you are going to have to kiss it goodbye. I freak out when someone follows too close on the highway or even local roads. With the market value on these pretty low even with very low mileage the insurance cos rather do a payout than deal with hidden damage and expensive welding - esp with the rear.

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Gap between rear tire and bumper

My 2003 clk430 convertible was involved in a collision and the repairs are (supposedly) complete. So I went to collect the car from the body shop and noticed that the gap between the rear facing edge of the rear tire and the front of the back bumper was larger on one side than the other. I could fit three fingers on one side but four on the other. Should this gap be equal on each side of the car It

So you have something not quite right there. It probably will not steer properly like that.. I have seen a body repair shop pull the rear section of a car with a power winch to get the alignment correct.

My friend asks me if the handling is better than the Accord. As we all love

i had a guy try to race me with a Taurus he kept inching up while we were both at the red light. Naturally I would beat him in a minute so I just decided to be a prick and moved out of my lane and right in front of him..........blocking about a quarter of the other side of traffic.....no big deal..just wanted to make sure he saw the clk 430 badge as for the hondas........more like The Last and the Furious..............

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 CLK 430 VS CLK 430 AMG

Hi guys i was wondering what is the difference between the 2. My clk has the rear and front amg bumper i think the side too not sure... And I was wondering what else is different between the 2.

They serve as extra Fender Drive and make the car handle like an all wheel drive ...The front fenders are now faster than the rear quarter pannels ...Drawback is that the door gap expands during acceleration..There is now a whisteling noise at 50mph (goes away once the rear quarterpannels catch up )

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 What the hell is this

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Inspection Report Decision

hi Guys Im posting this in a separate thread to get more views and advice. I finally received the inspection report on the car - here goes The good news is that it shifts well has no apparent engine issues and doesnt seem to crab - although I doubt it was test driven at highway speeds. The bad news is that it has apparently had some body repair. If it was done right and doesnt affect chassis dynamics

Hi Guys Heres a short update. I was able to find out that both the front bumper and rear left quarter panel were replaced. This means that this car was in a serious accident sandwiched between a rock and a hard spot. This makes the sellers story about the drivers seat being just a switch problem unlikely. One can instead assume there is a likelihood that the drivers weight during the collision broke

Hi. I currently own a W209 Softop clk240 with the VIN WDB2094612T025139. When I wanted to open my soft top it wont fully open.

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Looking at a 2002 CLK320 -- Any tips

Looking at a beautiful 2002 clk320....105k... Pros visually amazing interior exterior engine super clean could eat off it looks garaged cleaned regularly brand new tires brakes from inspection bad 1 accident on carfax when car was new but under lease so I guess MB probably fixed it... No history whatsoever someone keyd car on passenger side He wants 9k....KBB in excellent is 8400... Does 8300 sound

Im a former newused car sales manager. First nothing repeat nothing is KBB excellent unless maybe its a dealer certified car. Any car you look at in someones driveway no matter how clean it is is average at the most. If he has complete service records from day one until the day youre looking at it then maybe its good. Otherwise you can spend 1500 in the first week just catching up on the service requirements.

MERCEDES BENZ CLK II 209 04 CLK55 AMG - Periodic BuzzChirp alarm

Bought this car a few months ago and have had periodic alarm issue. Its full cycle (chirp to solid on) has happened twice that I know of... heres the latest example Last night I sprayed the car off (top and undercarriage) brought it home and parked it in garage. About 30 minutes later a brief (.05 sec) buzz or nasty chirp is heard (the chirp almost sounds like the buzzer warnings at a basketball game)

I actually thought of that (a tracker) ... but between the two instances of it going off (continuously) its been a couple of months.

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 Trim around windows

Hello all The trim around my windows is that brushed bronzy looking color (I forget the name of it but it was a trim option) and I dont care for it. To me it doesnt look as if if is supposed to be that color even though it is. Looks like it used to be chrome but faded to what it is now. (That is not the case but thats what it looks like to me). Considering the look of my car I would prefer the chome

Here is the link. Oxidized Aluminum The only problem with this kit is that it WILL NOT add black coating to the car it will only remove haze or oxidation that has occurred over time. If the trim has gone from deep black to say a reddish hue its recoverable because its just oxidized. If its gone to a semi opaque pink thats the aluminum showing underneath and you cant fix it as the coating has worn off.
