since ive had my 110cdi vito the heater has always blown hot even on cold setting does anyone know what it could be also rear wipers do not work when van is put in reverse have been told it could be a relay have check fuses and they are okay. if it is a fuse where is it to and which one is it
I had this problem with my 108CDI it turned out to be a kink in the control cable causing it to bend behind the switch when turned to cold. Replace the cable and all should be ok. You can adjust the temp by putting your hand up behind the dash between the brake and clutch pedals and pushing the valve towards the front of the van for cold and using the control for hot. Hope this helps Sammy
I have a 06 plate 109 Vito with an on going problem with the gear box. It is stiff going into 2nd gear from 1st. The problem is more obvious when the van is cold. I have to come off the gas and drop the clutch
as normal but it seems i have to wait for the revs to drop right down before going into 2nd gear (from 1st) to avoid crunching. It get much better as the van warms up. i have taken it back to
Hello there Recent convert to the versatile Vito. I need to fit a towbar and dual electrics and need some advice on the electrical wiring. I will be getting the WIS DVDs. Anyone in possesion be able to tell me if they have relevant info on this Thanks Mo
Adamuk No solder used I used cablecraft CHSB1 connectors. These are crimp connectors with heatshrink sleeving borrowed from work stock. We use them in pressurised oil filled enclosures subsea with no problems so they should be OK for use in british weather conditions I also used self-amalgamating tape to seal the back of the sockets on the towbar as the rubber boots were not a great fit.

Hi I have just bought myself a new van mercedes
vito 109 95000miles and very clean. I have had the problem that it jumps out of first gear almost every time (it will only stay in if you are realy smoth and ride the clutch
). could any one help how to sort this problem all the other gears seem to be fine. My thought are the gear cable
s or gearbox rebuild I have checked the cable
s which seem fine but
I Dont think its the cables as you cant even hold it in gear and whens you go underneath the selector linkages are moved fully when you select first. Im also not sure about the 1st gear syncro as when i neutral it goes into gear quietly and it is as the power is increased and clutch is engaged that it will jump out into neutral. my thoughts are a damaged first worn bearing or dog clutch damaged . seemingly
Hello guys recently i left my 93 v12 for front timing covers reseal. The shop did great job. Engine is very shiny but now it wont start. heh. I took injector harness for rebuild but after resistance measurement it looks good (no shorts). I will rebuild it anyway but i wonder now how to take my early style ETA connector apart to do eta rewire. ETAs look like they are still factory units. Never replaced.
hello guys Yesterday i checked both ETAs and they are fine. Today i put my restored injector cables on car but engine did not run. After 2 hours of thinking we hooked up the star diagnosis. What came out is that driver side 4 pin temp. sender reading was really out of range. 17 degree C on pin 1 and -11.8 degree C on pin 2 - yes - 11.8 on a 25 degree C sunny day. And next thing is that with ignition

Anyways I got the pretty much base c300 sport white on black with just the premium p1 package and 4matic (have to take what they have). I have a question about the audioradio

hi allim new to this forum and its my first thread so here goes.i have a 99 108cdi and having problems engaging reverse gear sometimes it just grinds the gearbox and then flyes in.also selecting the other gears are very notchy.is this possibly the clutch
on its way out or could it be something else
the gear linkage is a cable so it might just be a stretched cableor as you said it might be the clutch. have you checked the fluid
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

Hi All I can get a 1996 C280 for 800 Canadian with 200000 kilometres or about a 120000 miles. Would really like any advice on what to look for etc commen problems. I do notice it has the green antifreeze in it I know that everyone over in the W124 forum say it is a big no no. I know the paint job is horrid but it is cheap. They want 1650 but talked him down to 800 Here are some pictures
The story is lost his job. The car was listed for 1650.00 but I mentioned the two tone paint and how it had the green antifreeze in it. So that needed to be replaced. He came back with an offer of 1000 I held my ground and said was pretty firm with my offer He just emailed and asked when do you want to do the deal for 800 I have a 1988 300CE which is a driving project car This C280 will be my daily

is there any way to install a new universal navigation in replace for the 7 non navi
Are you looking to replace non-multimedia setup with multimedia setup Or replacing multimedia setup with new double din setup Confused by the question cause multimedia setup is 7 but it has navi. Non multimedia has no navi but you can install UMI which will give you navi features as well as real time traffic. To my knowledge only one person has replaced their stock console with a double din setup (got_thang).
This first post is going to be long. I like to provide all the details. Update posts after this one will be more to the point.

Might as well get into the tear down. Most people know or have heard this on here before but I am going to emphasize it again. Digital photos (more than you think you will need) and bagging and tagging. Taking things apart is always the easy part. Its getting them back together correctly that is the challenge.

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.
you may be stretching the cable Id replace the stopper on the floor. there is a free-play adjustment at the top of the pedal its a white plastic threaded collar an absolute sob to get at. keep in mind however that the free play you experience may not be related to the cable but to wear on the bellcrank on the CIS. my car has this problem... and if you dial out all the cables slack your throttle will
I have a 2000 w202 with about 85k miles. When I start to accelerate i hear a slight grinding noise coming from the engine. It goes away as I increase in speed but every time I stop and then start to accelerate it does it again. Its not super bad but Im wondering if anyone would know any causes and remedies of this. I just had my tranny oil changed by independent benz
shop as well as a leaky camshaft. Any help would be greatly appreciated
i have exactly the same noise in my 99 c230 kompressor are you sure thats what it is when pulling the throttle cable and listening Ive heard the noises around the supercharger (electromagnetic clutch area) to be specific... cause the noise is kind of grindy but also like a computer hard drive type noise... I also found a rebuild kit for 60 bucks including new sc oil and the bearings for the snout.. but maybe I am wrong...

Whenever a repair is performed following a CEL there are three methods of extinguishing that light. The first and most preferred is using a scan tool to clear the code(s) and by doing so all eleven monitors (some vehicles only require 9 or 10) have to be proven worthy again. If after three drive cycles (explained later) the CEL light does not illuminate again the repair you made was a success. The
Hi I have a 1997 C 230 benz
. Usually almost everyday my transmission seems like it slipping gears. Like it would take a while going at 20mph to 30 and if I do add more acceleration to it the car will jerk to the next gear and then after that it everything would be fine. Any ideas I ask the service rep and a mercedes
Authorized Mechanic they said it was OK Seems like a safety recall to me.
My car would be perfect until you pull of on a steep hill or slowdown and then pull off again without stopping. It would then feel like a manual car with a worn clutch where the car still moves forward but the the engine races away. It seems that some where before i got the car some one messed with the selector adjust cable running from the throttle linkage to the transmission. its been a couple of

Hi i have bought an ex handicap car vito. to get it legal for me to drive i have to take out most of the handicap gear. It was a little more work than espected... so much extra wires and reles to get it right i need to unmount the dashboard and put in a new used one. there are screws in the side inside the instruments and under the steering wheel. its almost loose but its still connected to something. ideas anyone or does anyone have a digital manual would be most grateful
Theres also some screws in and around the center consoleswitch panel. 1 is access from underneath via the ashtray and you have to take all the switch plate heater controls and vents out. Then there are 3 or 4 locating pegs that are right up against the windscreen side of the dashboard so you need to lift the dash at the front to get it out. I went through exactly the same thing as you. Im still pulling
When I first start the AC it blows out cold air. If I turn the temp control knob to hot it blows out hot air. When I turn it back to cold if the blower speed is 3 or 4 it continues to blow out hot air. If it is on 1 or 2 it goes back to cold air. Also since I bought the car I can get little to no air to the footwell. I have reviewed some of the posts on this site and have read about some of the air

Hi My AC clutch

Anybody have any idea when iam driving ( 270cdi ) 2002 when it goes through gear changes it revs high for some reason. any ideas anyone.
do you have an auto or a manual if you have a manual its reving cuse your gas pedal throttle cable is sticky so when you put in the clutch the engine revs. if you have and auto then you have a problem that the dealer needs to look at.

yepp thats what I figured. Guess I was holding out some strange hope that the 2002s some how worked with a motor that tightened the cables. Seemed like a long-shot but why not eh Looks like I will just be buying the old one its lost its ability to engage the clutch on my compressor
Hello all. Im hoping to form the definitive thread on this problem once and for all. Ive got bit of a story so bear with me.. I had my gearbox service done 5k miles ago.

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 cable
s and metal being knocked about. Is this normal Gear selection works fine. Just a bit ing noisy
Thank you for your excellent advice. Ive done some more driving this morning from cold and have come to the conclusion that the loud clanking from cold happens on gear release or rather when I get a delayed release. I had a gear change from 1st to second when I had the clutch fully pressed and I got a delayed clank about 1 second later. Sounds like your idea about the counter weight is a good one.
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 cable

Hi again all. The saga continues. Got the van back after getting the clutch
done and its spot on but now there is at least one if not more horrid knocking noises when moving. The garage cant recreate the noise when the van is still or jacked up. They have prie barred all the mounts and he finally told ms the top mount was gone as it was moving so much. One trip to my local merc dealer later they said
Just had a look at the drive shaft and most of the bolts are now missing and the ones that are left are only hand tight and ready to drop out. One of the washer plates has flown off and chopped the low pad warning cable in half.

Hi I have a Vito 110D from 97 (210000 km) with the following problems with the manual gearbox. Changing gear is in general not easy. Sometimes it seems like the gearbox is not properly syncronised and you have to disengage the clutch
twice to push it into gear. In the winter time the gearbox seems more heavy. The problem seems to have increased for the last couple of months. Is there an easy fix to this problem changing oil in gearbox changing gearbox cable

Hi Arndbr Was Rotler the winch fitted to Gs by MB from the factory when new Does the cable free wheel out with a clutch It looks very good.I had a PTO winch on a landcruiser and it was very good.br br Roly
Yes. The Rotzler winch was a DM4460 factory option in 1984. By pulling the round ball out on the end of the cable spool it free wheels out. Its not a clutch per se but is a gear that disengages to free wheel out.br br If youd like to see more photos of my Rotzler winch as it came from the factory click on the link below.
