    Hello Everyone, Well it's time to post again, as I just fixed another issue with the W245 2006/07 model. SRS failure warning message, Wipers (front & rear) not working & sunvisor vanity mirror light Failure Symptom: No power supply to the Wiper system circuit (fuse OK), SRS Failure Message on instrument panel, No light on Vanity mirror. SAM module not supplying power to the specific circuit on the fuse box. Fix: Replace faulty relay on the SAM unit. The relays for the fuse box and the wiper relays are on the SAM unit that link to Fuse box. The SAM unit (with relays) are located behind the glove compartment Locating the SAM Module: The SAM unit is in the footwell on the passenger side where your soles of your shoes are if you stretch your legs straight out. Remove the plastic grill at the top of the footwell, just under the glove box door. Secured by 2 torx screws towards the front and 2 clips at the back. Remove the wire to the light in the plastic grill. Remove the kick panel plastic left side just in front of the door. Pull back the carpet carefully as there is a lot of compressed foam glued to the carpet. Remove the relay plastic cover by gently pulling from the left side, and the cover will pop off Second from the left side relay (grey color) 4 pole is the faulty relay (A002 542 26 19) Tyco I bought a 70A replacement from an uncle shop at Alexandra Village (only shop open on a Sunday) near the food court as you drive out to Bukit Merah. $28 dollar - Cheaper than hundreds of $$$ Relay labeled "B" is the faulty relay (See Pics) Pole 87 goes to the right when you insert it, it only goes in one way so you cant get it wrong. Good Luck Desmo

    Dear fellow W205 owners, Just to keep you guys noted about my recent experience, with a terrible fuel leak. It started about 2 weeks back, that i notice the presence of fuel (by smell) almost each morning. As i had to rush daily to send the family to school and work.. i only could check after the end of the first commute. Opening up the hood, there is no more fuel smell, used torch to shine onto the undertray and its dry... so i left as it is. just over the weekend, since i had more time in the morning, i started the car, popped the hood and decided to check.... i started to smell the same fuel smell again... so started to shine my torch at the undertray.... i could see a puddle (which i initially tot it was water residue).... Just a min into the engine warming up, i start to see dripping! i immediately headed down to the workshop and have them check the car. Again, because the car has fully warmed up, there was no more leak! trays were just slightly wet and nearly dried up. Workshop then noticed the fuel stains around the high pressure fuel pump, and told me to leave the car overnight so they can check the next morning when the engine is cold again. True enough, they found the source of the leak. the factory clamp on the fuel return hose was not tight enough. After inspecting the hose, they said the hose was good, just the factory clamp wasnt tight enough. So they added another clamp and this fixed the fuel leak. I will monitor for the next few days to see if its really resolved. If you encounter the same issue where you cold start your car, and you smell presence of fuel, please do check for leaks, it can be as simple as checking if your undertray is wet or damp. I have checked that the a/c water drain will not drip at that same spot where the fuel leak is. I attached some pics to show you the leak, and the source of the fuel leak. As there is no modifications made to the fuel delivery of the car, i consider this a production defect from the factory. My car is purchased from PI, and even the PI told me this is not considered as wear and tear, and they will warrant the change of parts if needed. Hope this helps any bros, as fuel leak is a very highly dangerous situation we will want to avoid! IMG_3590.MOV

    so here's the quick update after collecting my car. First attached pic with the fuel leak circled in red, is on the stock clamp. Unfortunately the vid file is too large to upload, but basically on startup, the hose immediately got wet and covered with leaking fuel. The issue is not from the hose but from the clamp which is not tight enough. So the workshop replaced this with the screw type clamp. fired up the car and no more leaks. simple fix and lucky to avoid any further issues like accidental fires... will continue to monitor for the coming days.... hopefully this is the end of this particular issue. *fingers crossed*

    From CnC or PI? If CnC ask them where's your GPS Maps cos your car comes equip with Code 506 Audio 20 GPS and not just Audio 20. When in Mar this year, I went to CnC for 2019 GPS Maps update. They said I must pay and I told them my car comes with Code 502 - 3 years of map updates free of charge. If I've to pay, I go and write to Daimler Benz. CnC contacted me and I send my car in for the FOC S.E.A 2019 Ver. 7 - Maps Update. Before the Maps Update, the SA say this Map Version after updates the HU in some cars got hung. Told them if the HU get hang, they have to fix it Came out boh tai chee!

    Hi Rick, My previous W212, for servicing or repairs (minor & major), I used to go to to OptimaWerk - Ah Yong aka Vincent but he moves to Toh Guan. Ah Yong or Vincent came out from MBM long way back. Now I go to Ignite - They recently change all my brake pads for my W213

    I did my Express Service B for my W213 at about 27k km (30k km servicing) and next servicing will be Service A at around 42k km (45k km) Do the Express Service B for 1 day as it's supposed to be 30k km servicing. Tell the SA to advise you and do not change if a. Need to change battery (do it outside) b. Need to change brake pads and or rotors (do it outside) This's the scope of work they do for Express Service B Prices could defer depending on model
