MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito reving its ns off help

Hi all When I push down the accelaraterand release sometimes it keeps going up in the Revs until I have to switch off and start again. Anyone with advice (apart from the Merc dealers- CC maxed out)

The throttle in these are like fly by wire. When you accelerate the cable actuates a magic box which sits up under the windscreen behind the heaterbox air intake ductwork passengers side engine compartment... (On a RH drive dont know where it is on LHD). On my van 108CDi the after market AC pipework as fitted by the MERCDAD pushed the bowden cable to the point that it was around 30 degrees off straight...

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 Clutch problem 1991 300E

Im sorry if this is a novice question but I know very little about hydraulic clutches. I just got this 1991 300E and the friction point on the clutch is very high up almost at the end of the arc as opposed to close to the floor. If im not mistaken you cant really adjust a hydraulic clutch like you would a cabled clutch so im trying to figure out if this is a problem with the pressure plate or possibly

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS A I 168 A170cdi automatic gear box problem

My A170cdi lost engine power on a busy highway in England when I managed to pull over the gear indicator was showing F guessing that it was computer failure I restarted the car and all was well. br br mercedes have run diagnostic tests and say that the computer was showing a cured fault and therefore nothing was wrong with the car I was told that if it reoccured to bring the car back to the dealer.

Hi lot have been spoke on automatic but for me something not clear yet. My car at R is having some clutch problems. It seems like in a manual you try to release clutch pedal too fast. I see no F indicator. So as far as I read clutch in automatics are similar to motorcycles wet disks but in this case I think for each gear is that true I also understood that the copper pistons inside the automatic gearbox

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Err I think I got a Lemon

Well I bought my mom a 1998 E320 and I knew this car needed fixing but now by the time I finish fixing one thing I find another thing wrong. I held off on posting for a long time and search has been my only friend here since now. So I come to you now needing some feedback. Heres my list of problems. 1.) First the brake pedal goes to the floor before and after I replaced the front rotors and pads so

If I remember correctly a falling brake pedal with constant pressure on the pedal can only be either a worn master cylinder (an internal leak) or an external leak somewhere in the system. If youre not losing brake fluid then its the master cylinder. If its a leak or bad master cylinder dont waste time bleeding the brakes until the leak is fixed or the master cylinder is replaced. It should be a simple

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 RPM related clicking - tachometer cable

Im getting a clicking sound that can be heard best at idle inside the cockpit with the roof up. I thought it was a pulley bearing but Ive changed out all I could on the front of the engine--supercharger idler tensioner and AC. My car has 80k miles so Im glad I did it for preventative maintenance but the clicking is still there and driving me crazy. Its most noticeable at idle with the car in neutral.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 To be or Not to be on Neutral gear

My friend has a W210 with 722.6 gearbox. We are debating whether we should put on the neutral while stopping on the traffic light instead of keeping in D. Someone said switching between N and D fequently causes more problem on the gearbox while another saying that the gearbox will do more harm keeping in D while forcing the car in idle. Dont know whos right.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 auto to manual

Am i right in thinking that if i bought a manual vito van i could transfer all the manual conversion into my 1999 auto v220.If so is there a specific model that i need to get.

One thing (amoung many) to sort out is the pedals and cables BEFORE you put the engine and box back in.....the clutch is fluid and the pipework is attached to the firewall...i had a leak in the pipe (no clutch) and found it impossible to remove the pipework without bending it totally out of shape theres no room to extract it easily....i had to get a stainless flexi made to replace it....all much easier if there was no engine in the way....

Just a small update.Ive fitted the clutch pedal and gear change.damn nightmare getting the clutch pipes fitted with the engine in place.clutch and flywheel fitted.I also have the gearbox on I didnt change the subframe yet though.Ive still got to connect the gear cables and clutch pipes to the box.I am nearly at the stage where I need to find out what writing needs to be done.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Gear Selection Problems W639

Hi chaps can someone shed some light on an issue with my Vito. My Vito is a 54 plate 111CDI that only has 36000 miles. When I start the van from cold I am unable to select any gear especially reverse this has become worse now the weather has been below zero. I have to start the van from cold in gear but once moving I can select gears ok however if I stop before the van has warmed up and select neutral

one other thing i should have mentioned about Mrclutch is that they operate an aftersale clutch inspection service after they have fitted your clutch they hand you a card which has to be filled in and stamped on 4 different occasions at different mileage intervals within the first 12 months they apparantly inspect your clutch (god only knows how) and check that everything is adjusted correctly (again

MERCEDES BENZ 190 W201 Gaz ans clutch pedal adjustments

Hello to you all i was hoping any of you could help me out with a little question. 1 My gaz pedal has about a whole inch of loose play at the very top before anything happens when depressing it. I got in a BMW last night (E30) and the gaz pedal in that one had absolutely no loose play. RPMs go up as soon as you make contact with the pedal. This leads me to beleive that the 190 should also be like that.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C I 202 Converting my 94 C220 from Auto to Manual 5speed

Converting my 94 C220 with 249 000 miles from Auto to 5 Manual. Here is what I have done and found out so far 1.A manual transmission out of a 190E or 190D will fit. It can be the 5 speed 717.411 or the close ratio 5speed getrag with dog leg first gear. 2. Pedal assembly from the 190E 190D will fit with small modifications in order to connect the top bolt on the bracket. 3. The Shifter from 190E190D

comparing the flexplate to the flywheel. I marked it and moved the timing plates to the flywheel. Epoxied them for testing. Got the car running but it was always scraping in to something and woudnt start easy. Tried it a few times and gave up and ordered the flywheel from germany. Removed the center console and automatic shifter. Installed the manual shifter and ran a cable from the reverse light switch

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 OT but I really need help

I know Im not supposed to post this here but Im at a loss at an issue with my Z. Mr. Moderator delete this if you feel it doesnt belong here - but please I really need help and I feel theres enough knowledge here to help - even though our cars trucks arent manual trannies. Introduction My daily driver is a 89 Nissan 300ZX Turbo with about 240K. Several years ago (and I believe that was under 100K)

Let me start out by saying I am no expert in this. But in reading your post before coming to you mentioning the throwout bearing I was thinking the same thing. Does the Z have the old style clutch cable set-up Just before the throwout bearing on my 911 gave out I had a metallic sound that disappeared when the clutch was depressed. Snapped my clutch fork as well when the bearing gave way.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 need some gearbox pictures

Hello all I have a vito 108cdi thats been having problems with gear changing especially when cold 2nd gear is a killer until engine warms up.I have read all the posts of similar problems gerabox magic.. etc. and its not that bit might be the cables... but the counter arm weight is knackered just flopping about. so had to by a new one from merc as mine was missing plastic rectangle and bushes were cracked

Yes it worked still not 100% smooth but I would say at least 80% better. Maybe a bit of extra greese inside the gear knob gaiter end and it might improve also adjusted the gear linkage pretty much made the yellow cable that does forward and backwards movement as short as possible under the ashtray. That helps too if its too long 3rd gear kept jumping out and didnt feel like it was going in properly.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito 108D 2003 Heater Control Knob

My heater control knob seems to have no resistant & moves very freely. Consequently when you move it slightly it just blows hot air. When you turn it back to cold it sometimes continues to blow hot. My question is there a cable at the back of the control which may have come loose or is it electronic I suspect the Heater control is part of the whole unit of switches so realise I will have to take centre dash out to get to it. Thanks.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Shopping for a E430 (W210) what are some things I should know Parts that should be

Hi all Ive read the stickies and searched through the forum taking notes but I know theres no replacement for experience. So any and all opinions are welcome. Im shopping for a E430 (W210) and am wondering what things I should be looking for. Im aware of the rust & harmonic balancer issues. Are any years better than others Were most of the issues resolved by the 2002 model year Are there any options

When looking at cars & their service records are there some things that I should check for being changed at different mileage or age intervals From the A & B service manual I downloaded I know Coolant is every 3 years Brake Fluid every 2 years Oil & Oil Filtergasket every 10k miles spark plugs every 100k miles & Fuel Filter 60k miles or 4 years. How long do X last Which will probably go bad with mileage

Control cable Theres a blue cable that runs from the heater controls to the valve that is above the clutch pedal you will need to remove center dash panel and the heater controls and lie on the floor to see the bit that connects to the valve. Sometimes the cable bends at the end or becomes disconnected. Might be an air lock Might also be the valve broken they are not very strong.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 V230 Ambiente (W638) Gearbox Problems

I have recently had a new clutch fitted to my 1997 V230 Ambient. When the car went in the gearbox was working fine ( for a V class ) apart from a reluctance to go into reverse ( especially on cold mornings ) Since the new clutch has been fitted it is now impossible to even find reverse gear let alone get it in to reverse. The same problem applies to 2nd and 4th gears. We have taken the car back but

sounds like you need a reverse selector cradle its the bit on top of the gearbox that has 2 heavy cables attached to it (the gear lever cables) dont mess around - change it .... 2 bolts hold it down and the cables push on off... about 23 from merc for the part and 10 mins to change. Im surprised the clutch guy didnt fit a new one --- ask him to do it if you pay for ( supply ) the part.


I am getting a 79 230G. Where can I find a replacement engine for my 79 230G How much does it cost Where can I get an AC retrofit system for my G

For the swap from 230G to OM617A (5cyl 3 liter all iron turbodiesel) At the least youll need engine support arms and motor mounts from a 300GD. Then youll need an oil cooler and lines from a 300GD. A radiator from a 280GE works well too (need more cooling than 300GD rad gives). I THINK you can use your existing transmission and bell housing but not certain 4x4 rancher would know better as hes seen

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C I 202 722.600 VS 722.605

I need to replace the transmission in my 1998 C230. It has a 722.600 in it. I have found a cheap 722.605 from an SLK230. What is the difference of these transmissions Can i use the 722.605 I know the mexican 1997-1998 C230 used the 722.605.

There are many flavors of this transmission. The biggest difference is the gear ratios. Then good thing is there are two flavors. Small NAG for V6 (4 cyl) applications and Large NAG for V8 applications. There are different combinations of clutches hence all the revisions. The revision numbers xxx (722.XXX) also include the tcu programming. The transmission you have should work just fine. The electrical

Hi all Just bought an 2005 vito and sometimes it will select 5th perfect and drive fine and other times you think it is selected unto you release the cluch and it is not in gear and grinds a little there is about 150000miles on it do you think this is the gearbox or maybe just the gear oil needing changed i will guess it will never have been done Any help would be great

Ive just got a 639 Vito replaced my 638 and I am now wondering why Its a 115 2004 dualiner. It occasionally pops out of first (gearstick doesnt got far enough forward then it pops out).

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Noisy mechanical gear change

I just bought my first Van Vito. Its a 2007reg 111CDI. When I change gears there is a noisy (from the exterior) mechanical clinking clanking sound. Its not gears grating Its more like cables and metal being knocked about. Is this normal Gear selection works fine. Just a bit ing noisy

I just heard from the garage. It is as you suggested the linkage needed some greasing. They have also changed the gearbox oil for good measure. Im not sure I understand it right so correct me if I am wrong. The clanking noise was from a loose cable being pulled taut by the counter weight. When I press the clutch the gear linkage goes loose then the counter weight kicks in a bit late due to the lack


Well not really. I cant claim any responsibility at all for this fine piece of craftsmanship. But I thought Id share the fact that the TopTent arrived from South Africa today.

Ill get it on the truck this weekend for some action shots. But to get an idea here it is closed up -Dave G.

Make sure the motor is a through-shaft design or better yet an offset gear reduction design with over-running clutch so that the hex shaft is still available for use when needed. Just after I got the top-tent a buddy of mine returned from a week-long jaunt with his pickup-bed camper. Its the kind with a roof that lowers a bit and the roof is raised by an electric motor.
