MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Heated rear window retrofit on a Vito.Help needed

Hi I just bought a vito 108 D 638 and it is a 3 seat cargo. Since I am going to use this car most of the time in the city I wanted to be able to park it easier so between parking sensors and a rear window at the same price I went for the second one. I bought a rear tailgate from a V Klasse with the original mercedes heated rear window. Now the problem is how to wire the heating of the window. I got

I just bought a vito with less rust than my old one (battery froze and rotted out main frame member) The new one is more basic and I am going to retrofit the heated window heated and electric mirrors ABS traction control. The retro fits are easy mercedes parts being largely self contained because EVERYTHING is an extra at the factory. rear window needs glueing with proper windscreen adhesive......

Thank you very much for your answer. I was thinking to use the wires from the cargo area light because the connection with the dash is already made and I will only switch the button on the dash. You think that fuse will be enough Or I still need a relay

Run a NEW cable its not difficult and you need at least a 15Amp fuse (I havent checked but it may need higher - I will look) The lighting circuit is nowhere near enough power for the rear screen even if rarely used....... best bet is a red and black pair run around the lip joining the roof to sidewall and down behind the seat belt cover to the battery compartment. an in-line fuseholder from a car shop is perfect.

Just checked you may have Relay K3 under the passenger seat already unfortunately mb cannot say in what position but the wiring for a heated rear screen is commonly fitted.... if so fuse F63 should also be there rated at 30Amp. If no luck you need new cables and MUST use a relay rated 30Amp min and a 30Amp fuse. wish I could help more but it now down to you.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 VITO 220 CDI rear electric windows dont work

hi guys im new to this thread. im hoping some one can help me out i just bought my 2002 model vito 220 cdi 2 weeks ago i know nothing about a vito apart from they look cool i dont have any manuals with it so im not sure i know what im doing i can only get the rear left hand window to open with the controls on the drivers door the right rear window will not open at all nor can i get the two rear window switchies to work is this a problem with a vito or have i just got a bad one.

Hi Welcome to the forum. There are many threads on this subject and you will find that the answer is pretty much the same. The problem is most likly to be broken wires between the drivers door and the A post within the rubber tube. If you have any problems with the central locking then this will be the problem aswel. Hope this helps Sammy

I have a 2001 v220 & when i first bought it the one off the rear windows would not work. I slackened the rear inner panel & got my hand in there is a motor lower than the window that turns a cable upto the window (a bit like a speedo cable). Mine was just sticking probably due to lack of use. I got a friend to work the switch while i wiggled the cable and it started to work & has worked fine ever since. Might be worth a try if you dont find any damaged wires. Hope this helps

Before my vito I had a Renault Laguna estate on that as well as opening the tailgate you could open just the glass.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito 108d heated rear window help pls

Hi all the heated rear window in my 1998 vito 108D doesnt work Nothing obvious wrong to look at The switch on the dash doesnt light up when pressed so assume no power to the switch Has anyone got a wiring diagram tell me which fuse is the one (although all fuses look ok) or can give me any advice on where to start tracing the fault Thanks in advance

hope this helps from memory it contains window winders mirrors then rear window demister followed by fuse and relay information. in future it is best to give your vin for specific information re your vehicle.... however in this instance the data is already collated. COMPOSITE simply means a collection of MB data sheets (designed for mb trained engineers) you can check which sheets you need (doesnt

I think its a case that a lot of companies have flooded the market with cheap rubbish chips and have given companies like Superchips an unfair bad image. Its just my opinion but if a company has been going for more than 27 years they must be doing something right Regards benz Bling

Ramsteeth is right a remap is for sure the way to go. Again this is what youll get from Superchips. Ive got this off their website for you For turbo-diesel cars up to 30&37 more torque and more power fuel economy improvements Here too we deliver a smoother enhanced drive by ensuring our remap matches the fuelling to the increases in boost pressure. Ramsteeth who did your remap And do they do petrol engines Ive got a vito 113 (2.0 litre petrol engine) and I would love a remap but no one wants to know when I tell them its a petrol engined vito.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 2004 Vito 115 - problem with rear side door

I have a problem with the rear NS side door on my 04 vito. It will not latch when we close it. Cant see anything obvious when looking at the latch mechanism itself.

Hi I am about to purchase a window regulator replacement kit for the drivers side window (right hand side in Australia) and was wondering if anybody had instructions to replacing this. I have looked at it by taking the door trim off... And it looks complicated as well as hard to get in reach of all the regulator parts. Cheers selim

Hi I have a Dec 05 build 115 and am also in Oz. My drivers window does not go all the way up. When I try to close it it gets to about 34 up then goes down. I have to put my hand on the glass and pull it back towards the rear of the van to get it to close. What problem are you having Peter

Yes I spoke with a dealer. They said the rain has the effect of drying out the rubbersrunners in the window. He said all merc vito owners should grab a can of SilicaSilcon spray and tear the runners to a blast every now and again to avoid premature motoro failure. I will grab one as soon as I can find the time and report my findings here. I noticed before this became a major problem that the window

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Central Lock and the electric rear windows

Hi guys My name is Leonid and Iam from Moscow vito vans are quite popular here. I own a 2002 vito 110Cdi. The question is - do you know if the vito have some kind of central lock reset function like in E-class. I suspect the problem with my electric rear window is because of that.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Completely removing rear wipers on 2004 Vito

Ive recently purchased a 2004 vito with twin rear doors and windows. The windows are blacked out and there are panels inside meaning they are opaque. I would like to put a logo for my company on there but the wipers are in the way. Is there a way of removing the wipers and plugging the holes theyre attached to with some kind of cap Or am I stuck with them

the wiper is a simple nut on the outside of the spindle and a couple of securing screws on the inside. there are no special covers for the holes as the wipers are one of the few standard bits on all windowed vitos. Ive seen blind grommets used - from an electrical or electronics or car shop (including halfords)..... Ive also seen plumbing blanking plugs used.. the type used to blank off tap holes in a new sink.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito dualiner

Hi newbie here all being well I will picking up a cheap dualiner 98 next week with it just to transport my kids and dogs about. I plan to remove the rear seats and then refit the rear 3seat row behind the drivers seat for the kids leaving me with large load space to have cages installed for dogs.
