  1. Update - did the thermostat housing and coolant change together, since removing the thermostat housing also causes quite a spillage of the coolant. And removing the thermostat was quite a chore... saw the mechanic having to remove the air filter box and manifold before getting to the thermostat housing. The cost with labour was ten blue notes with a small change. Now the temperature gauge reads 90 deg C - no more 80. I'm happy now... I planned a road trip to KL in Aug, hope no more CEL during the long drive. If I don't post again, it's good news. Cheers all.
  2. Thanks! the error code is P0128 - guess i hit a “known” problem as Google threw up multiple hits. Will plan a change of thermostat housing along with the coolant since it’s due for major service. Update back later.
  3. Hi guys, My beloved 2012 C180 is reaching 120,000km mileage. So far no big issues except for CEL in March when I was driving back to Singapore along NSH. I made a detour to Malacca (MBSA) to check the error, they found a coolant fault which may resolve with a software update. They cleared the light and asked me to follow up with C&C. Then I took no action since the major service is almost due anyway, and the CEL didn't appear again with driving in Singapore. I also observed that the temperature gauge on my dashboard has been unusually hovering lower at 80 degrees C even if I drive hard. I'm not sure when exactly it started but I'm pretty sure the temperature would read 90 degrees C normally for the past few years of ownership, unless weather is very cold. Come last week before the major service, I made another run to KL and sure enough the CEL came back again. Back at C&C, the SA informed of a possible temperature sensor fault, so maybe need to replace the electronic item with the sensor (i guess this is the thermostat housing). Any similar experience from guys here and how you resolved it? Thanks.
  4. Finally changed out 2x engine and 1x GB mounting last week on my 7G. the middle section of the engine mounts is completely sunk in, refer to picture. Symptom is vibration on the steering wheel. When the aircon is turned on, the vibration is stronger.
  5. Got CSC5 for $155/pc, with complimentary nitrogen gas. Alignment $60. Interested guys can PM me for shop name.
  6. Can ask where you guys did your change of mounting? Contemplating a change, my mileage is close to 80k now. C&C quoted me $1000 during service clinic.
  7. Hi bro, my W204 7G is approaching 28 months, C&C will likely ask me to change out the stock batt during the 60k servicing. No issues on cranking so far. Need your advice if this AGM tech battery is only available on Varta? It is interesting to note the stock battery installed in my ride is a Varta 80AH model. There is a label "VRLA / AGM" on the battery, so I think I'd better do some homework on this. Thanks
  8. Any bros recently did an install of these replicas? Wondering if the recent shipments are RHD, appreciate if any bros can feedback.
  9. Is the capacity more than 10,000mAH? My opinion, it takes 6-8 hours to charge such batteries from a normal iphone charger. It may be a case of the battery losing more charge than it can be recharged.
  10. Practised the hold function, now able to make it hold by braking normally, then a quick and deeper pump of the brake.
  11. Mine at the 6th month mark threw out lots of bulb errors, calling out the rear lights eg. tail, brake and side. All were working, but the signal left/right blinked faster than usual, suspected that the computer wrongly detected no bulb installed. The errors miraculously disappeared after I parked for a while. At the boot, on the side there is a compartment. Open it up and reseat all the connections. You may see some frayed bits, I think it is a known issue for the harness.
  12. I thought 15k service interval is already kind of long when compared to my previous Honda... was thinking of doing servicing outside C&C midway every 15k.
  13. Hey bro, not yet. Interested? - sms me at 92300080.
  14. Hi all, I am selling a set of 3D Maxpider car mat for W204. It came with my ride but i have purchased 3M ones already. Not opened yet. Would like to sell the set for $100. Pls PM if keen. Thanks!
