MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 Water in Trunk CD Compartment

I have found water enters the left-hand trunk well where the audio amplifier and CD changer reside. I notice this after a drive in the rain or a trip to the car wash. This is a low-mileage car that has never been wrecked or had any glass replacements. The trunk weatherstripping looks perfect and the trunk closes fine. I have not locked myself in the trunk with an assistant manning the hose yet. I have

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 Scud Missle in the trunk

I presently own an 8 month old s430 4 matic. This car has been a nightmare from the beginning both electricialymechaniallywater leaks you name it Ive had it. The icing on the cake came last tuesday after picking the car up from the Dealer on one of my bi-weekly service visits. While they were trying to fix one of my many problems I also asked them to preform a recall repair on their faulty trunk pistons.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 Clicking sound from rear of s430

Hi I have a 2000 s430 which I have had for a year now. I have noticed a clicking sound coming from the rear passenger side. It is random and happens whether the car is on or off. The sound persists even when I first enter the car. It seems it may be coming from the trunk or somewhere behind the passenger. After further investigation it seems that the sound may be coming from a black box located in

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 Help me Weird Stuff going on S430

Hello O.K like a dumb ass I thought I found a great deal on a 2003 s430 with pretty low miles 66K. I got the car in AZ. then relocated to South Carolina for a job. I have had the car for about a month and a half and had no problems when I was in AZ. but the second I got to the East Coast the passanger side rear air ride goes down and ends up sitting on the wheel wells (when it drops below 60 degrees)

Had a similar problem after getting my s430 last year. Going forward make sure that the water drain at the bottom of the airbox is free of leaves and debris. I have a two foot long 14 inch wooden dowel in the trunk for periodically checking and reaming the installed water drain. Now Im considering drilling another backup hole near the bottom of the box like other forum members. To try and fix what

You have a soft pad I wish I had a soft pad. Actually there should be two sorts of trunk mat. One is the plasticrubber mat with ribbing for the wet times and then there was a carpet. I sourced my rubber mat from the junque yard from a 280. Fits great and looked better once I cleaned it and made it shine. The carpets are all dead now. There was much rust in the trunk so I replaced the existing rusty

About the only thing to deal with moisture in the trunk is to deal with the window and trunk seals so that no water gets in. Condensation is really minimal in a well sealed trunk. Gump is on the mend. Not sure if there is damage or just how mended she is. Took her out after repairs and in the short drive for fuel and fuel drier she did not exhibit any issues.

I let the s430 sit for a couple of weeks and when the wife and I started out last night the battery was dead. The dash lights were flashing off and on rapidly and nothing worked. I attached a small battery maintainer (1.25 Amp output) but when I checked it this morning the battery voltage was only up to 5.7 Volts. I disconnected the ground cable and hooked up the big charger at about 25 Amps. After

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 S500 Reliability vs S430

Hi everyone. Im a new member here as Ive always wanted an S class so Ive finally decided to get rid of my BMW 5 series for a S class. Im interested in 2004-2006 S class s430 OR S500. Im pretty familiar with the engine differences hp options etc between the s430 and S500. Ive also read the detailed sticky notes on them. My Question is one better then the other in terms of RELIABILITY For example in

Probably not but the owner or seller should be able to tell you. There is no visible exterior indication of ABC or Airmatic. The W220 S-Class Encyclopedia httpwww.benzworld.orgforumsw220...tart-here.html has links that tell you how to identify the differences from the buttons on the dashboard as well as from the tops of the front struts. The short version is a car with ABC will have a button labeled

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 2001 S430 rear fusebox

Im having some problems with my wifes car. She left the window cracked at work about a month ago in a rainstorm and everything in the drivers door stopped working. Power seats windows mirrors trunk release. Everything. Ive been doing some reading on the forums and it would seem that the drivers side door control module needs to be replaced. I removed the old one and theres no obvious damage so before

Welcome to the forum. As you have already determined your car has several fuse locations. The primary two are on the left and right side of the engine compartment. You also have three Signal Acquisition Modules or SAMS - one under the front seats and the one you saw under the rear passenger seat. These may have fuses associated with them the one under the right rear passenger seat does (the accessible

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 01 S430 Nav fix

After reading a lot of very helpful input on nav problems I sort of put several ideas together and figured out why mine would not read satellites. I pulled the gps antenna off the rear window and took it apart to check for water...no luck. Then I traced the two antenna wires into the right side of the trunk just above the battery. Both small coax cables were disconnected and dangling. After plugging

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 HELP S430 battery draining smoke out of vents numerous other problems

Hi I am new to the forum but have been using advice from you all for a while on my 2000 s430. Just recently the battery went dead on the car so i thought ok lets get a new battery so i did that and the car turned on. But now the fuel gauge wont work even though it has around 8 gallons of gas the seats and windows wouldnt work but then suddenly started working again the radio will turn on but not play

Welcome to the forum. You have multiple problems for which there will not be a single easy answer. The most serious is the smoke from your vents which I suspect is related to the fan or the fan controller. Replacing a battery will not ordinarily cause fuses to blow. I hope you did not have the key in the ignition when you replaced the battery or the audio system on. If so you may have damaged equipment.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 s430 Remote Issues... Please Need HELP

Whoa this is great stuff guys. Now were getting somewhere. Before the battery died my mother in law reversed and lightly bumped a truck. no damage but the truck did shake quite a bit. after that she drove it home parked it and there it sat till the next morning. next morning came around i popped the trunk with the remote and closed it. 3 mins later the battery was dead and all locks refused to openclose.

I had called the Mt. Vernon fellow a few weeks ago when he had it for 100. Never was able to get there. If I could survive SWMBA finding a junker outside I would snag if fast just as a parts car. Any 114115 you get will need parts and free is best price. What the CL guy with the 220D describes is the common failure points for the car. From discussions with people on other lists this car is not worth

The blower did not work in Gump and that was why it was sold so cheap. I had to weld a new sheet into my trunk to deal with the rust through. Professional job would run over 500. No real simple fix other than that. If it is not stopped and soon there is no need to bother owning the car for more than a year or two. That would be a 500 car in my book. There is nothing more expensive than a cheap benz.

after a few years. The lubricant dries up and the clock just stops ticking or the little capacitor dies. I have not seen a really dead capacitor yet more just bunged up solder joints so a refresh of the connection helps. To relube use a feather and gently dab some ATF on the working parts.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 2004 Inside Rain Damage

In Maryland here... My sunroof was left open last night and we got some major rain. When I got in the car I felt the front floors and they were dry. I thought I got lucky.

All the elctronics worked at the time but the rear shade (would not go up or down when pressing the dash button). The other

Skylaw Thanks for your response. You have helped me out many times in the past with my two MBs. I took out all the rear components. They were very clean with no water in any of the modules. Although the SAM (bottom unit) did have some water but it may have been residue left over after I soaked up all the water in the body-well. I checked all the fuses where I could locate the fuse boxes (under rear

You found all the standard rust spots. The cars leak at the drop of a hat at this age. Windscreen up front rear window into the trunk area. Door seals also let water into the cabin. Some may drool into the cabin from the front vent. Pretty rare. The body rust is from lack of keeping weep holes clear. The gunk builds up and keeps water from exiting. Best to get ahold of the shop manual and search out

Great looking example. Congratulations and much luck with your project. I would advise against adding power anything to the car. Everything you add will rob power and make it slower. Also the plumbing is a pain to retrofit. Best to sort out all the bugs you find now before attacking AC or PS. Rust loves our cars. Seals on windscreens are most to blame for leakage into the cabin and trunk. Replacing

Congratulations on the new car. Does it really have only 80k or has the odo rolled over What ever the miles she needs fresh fluids of the Mobil 1 type.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 Aftermarket GPS antenna for COMAND 2.5

Hi My original antenna is broken somewhere either the antenna or splitter and I dont think its worth paying the big price for a new Tele-aidphonegps antenna and or splitter. I want to buy an aftermarket GPS antenna on ebay because all I want to work is my navigation (phone and tele aid are long dated anways). Only thing is that im not too sure what to buy because In the back of my comand there are

Thanks for the info. The splitter and connections appear to be clean and free of corrosion. I note that the chrome trim around the rear window is missing the small piece that links the window trim that is just under the shark fin. water could have come in that way and perhaps messed up the antenna. I will buy an aftermarket and connect it to the port that the antenna feeds on the splitter and see what

Main difference is that the w114 is the lighter car and smaller engines. The w115 is the diesel and large engine sedan. I have no real issue with daily driving Gump. She is old so I have to repair or replace worn things that any old car will need attention to. Rubber bits and wear items are normal. Get some back up cash to fund the needed parts.

Dave The fresh air vent where the wipers are is what you will be removing. First remove wiper arms then the bolts holding the cover. The vent cover has a lip that slips under the window seal so slowly work the cover out and away. This will expose a big hole that is full of dirt and debris. Clean it out so that water will flow and flush away again. There is a metal roof thing in the middle of this hole
