    For those interested to have instructions on how to remove the door panel, please refer to the other thread on that. http://www.sgmerc.com/topic/25356-glc-remove-front-internal-door-panel/ After the interior door panel is removed, this is what you have. Notice the empty triangular speaker grille? Look at the following picture for reference on where are the clips and connection points. This will let you know where to push/pull to release the stock grille as well as where the new rotary tweeters should be installed. The highlights are colour coded to show where the surfaces are mated. Blue to blue, green to green and red to red. The 3D Rotary Tweeter main housing installed in the position of the former orginial empty speaker grille. This is the 3D tweeter held up and labeled to show the important connection points. Essentially split into 2 sets: S= Speaker L=Led. The various connection points before attachments After connecting to some of the stock door connectors Now hold up the interior door panel, connect S1 connector to the door panel speaker, plug one of the blue connectors to "5" slot of the DCM. Plug the other blue connector to L2 connector. Next, you are ready to reinstall the door panel: - reattach the door latch wire - thread the door lock knob through the hole in the door panel - line up all the panel holder 8+1 bits, make sure the top horizontal window edge is "hooked" along the attachment ledge. Start to give firm hard thud using heel of your palms to secure down the door panel to the metal frame. - screw in the 2 T30 torx screw into the original holes. - switch on your engine and enjoy the fruits of your labour!

    Just DIY installed my own set of 3D Rotary Tweeters for the GLCs with non-Burmester (ie. Audio 20) setup. Everyone knows by now the Audio 20 do not come with tweeters and the wing mirror area grilles are empty. Stock sound is passable for my non audiophile ears, but it could be better. I don't feel like spending 3-5k on aftermarket Burmester. The effect is amazing.... Especially if you have installed tha matching matt silver speaker grille covers for your mid speakers in the doors. The led lights will match the 3 colours of your original ambience light automatically. The center round piece will light up and rotate out on start up. Will retrack back when power down. There is an immediate improvement in the sound quality with better clarity and staging. It does so by hijacking rhe original signal to the mid range speakers and split the higher frequencies to the tweeters and sending the rest of the lower frequencies back to the mid range door speakers. Unboxing: Before: After: Startup sequence video:

    There are request for DIY walkthrough for installation of the 3D Rotary tweeters. I shall split the instructions into 2 parts for categorization and ease of search. The tool you absolutely need is simply just a Torx driver with T30 Torx bit. The rest are really good to have: trim removal pry, grip work gloves, addition narrow tip flat heas screw driver to depress the connector's release tabs. And before starting, lower both the front windows until fully retracted, reduce the chance of brealing the glass panels. Next swtich off the engine and power to the car. 1. Using the T30 torx bit driver, unscrew the torx headed screws from the 2 locations circled in red. A magnetized torx bit will be better to make sure your unscrewed screws don't drop into some of the narrow gaps in the door frame. 2. Next, use the interior trim pry to pull the interior door panel from the metal door frame. The locations of the various panel studs are shown in the picture as illustrated. So pry at the right location. Be careful of the door lock stub once the panel is pulled free from the frame. Make sure you don't lose any of the panel studs. 3. Once the inteior door panel is free from the door frame, remember you still have a few connections to release before the whole panel can be moved aside. - Unhook the door latch cable and unplug the connector as shown. - unolug the original speaker cable and connector from the door panel speaker. - unplug the wires and blue connectors that are plugged into "5" and "6" slots on the Door Control Module (DCM) After all the above is done, you can remove the interior door panel and move it aside to a safe location so as not to scratch or damage the surfaces. Now you are ready to install the 3D Rotary tweeters.

    Haha. A black car is nuch harder to maintain. This is a quote from one of the detailing forums: "I own a silver vehicle, and a black vehicle owns me. The black one demands attention, washing, detailing, waxing, and an occasional dinner out at a nice restaurant, while the silver one (new) demands nothing and it looks just fine. I am beginning to think the black vehicle is taking advantage of me, and the silver car is more my style. We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready."

    Hi Guys, I know this forum is funded by sponsors, and probably their rice bowl, but the profit margins they are taking from all the retrofitting is getting a little out of hand. Started this thread to share important information so all other C class users and GLC users can save $$$. Appreciate users who have knowledge on these info to come forward to share. Wrote this post because I'm taken aback by how much Elebest charges for the retrofit, $2000. Blown away. The smart phone integration pack for A class or B class is only $300. Also I'm a little disappointed that this forum don't share prices. Users, please share price, so fitters don't get to rip us off! Attached is car-play integration set, and its cheap. https://www.ebay.com/itm/OEM-GENUINE-MERCEDES-BENZ-SMARTPHONE-INTEGRATION-PACKAGE-B-CLASS-CLA-C117-/272403481489 Its only $90 US for the licence. Please, C class owners, before going to any fitters, go with eyes wide open about their margins. car-play.pdf

    I did some read up on these air valve caps and their effect on TPMS internal sensors. Corrosion due to the material used for the special valves with these aluminum valve caps are top issues overseas but that is also partly because they have snow and salt on their wheels once a year. Another school of thought is that the special TPMS air valves acts as an antennae to allow the communication of the internally mounted sensors with the vehicular body TPMS control unit. so putting an aluminum cap might mess with the signal. I keep my dull grey plastic caps on despite it being an eyesore..LOL

    Hi all, Just wanted to share the latest modification that I have done for my GLC Coupe. With my Comand NTG 5 that was installed, I wanted to see what else can be done to the car and since there is no CarPlay or Android Auto on the GLC Coupe (C253), I was thinking of the possibility to have AirPlay instead of just CarPlay since Airplay effectively means that I can have my ENTIRE iPhone mirrored to the screen of my car. Wouldn't that be cool ? Asked around and was looking fro HDMI input but it was a tough hunt. Many video input in the after market space are still stuck at the traditional RCA plugs which does no good to the latest Apple TV since it's all HDMI. Why get another converter and try to convert from HDMI to RCA etc. More points of failure. Found some sources out there and it turns out that it is only 480p resolution which is not fantastic. No HD on the Apple TV ? No Way. Managed to find someone that was very willing to explore and found a a HDMI input box @ 720p. The problem is of course there was no Aux in for my car model (Somehow I don't know why) and I eventually settled for FM transmitter which works out pretty well considering that I am stationary when I play with my Apple TV for entertainment. Here are some photos to share. I can have Netflix, YouTube, Vimeo, Toggle (Live TV requires Toggle Prime membership), AirVideo HD (For streaming all my videos from home), Viki ( VOD for Korean Drama) and I even have games on it. iTunes Music(With Lyrics) is not too bad on Apple TV because it's FM for me, it's not as ideal as someone with an AUX In. My internet runs off an portable wifi in the car for streaming and since you have plans like Data Infinity from Singtel @ 50GB more on top of your plan, it should not be any big issues. Reverse camera (or 360 camera if you have) all works as per normal since it will auto toggle when you hit the Reverse Gear. So for requirements, you got to have NTG5 Comand in order for it to work since the video box requires NTG5.
