Re: 04 E55 AMG: right rear door won't open from inside

I just realized I never tried the window after my repair. So I just tried it. Rolled all the way down and back up with no issues. Phew.

Re: 04 E55 AMG: right rear door won't open from inside

Even though the functionality of the door simply reverted to no Keyless Go, I couldn't let that ride. At the very least, I had to see what kind of carnage was inflicted. It was off to pull the door panel. I actually did this all from memory which I guess isn't that amazing since I just did this only...

Re: Mercedes E55 AMG hunt (W211)

I just checked the oil level. It still says the level is OK and it has been 1,026 miles since I added the last quart. This is a clear improvement so I am curious how far this will go. If it actually stays above the 1,000 mile/qt range that could be enough for me to just defer this repair...

Re: Mercedes E55 AMG hunt (W211)

Road trip report. Summary: Left RI on 7/1 around 8:15am. Pulled into hotel in WV around 5:15pm. We all lasted 4 hours before a single stop which was incredible. Filled up at a Sheetz in PA and got 21.7 mpg. Then I electronically checked the oil and it said to add 1.5 qts, about 447 miles since the o...

Re: 04 E55 AMG: right rear door won't open from inside

I did the easy thing and pulled the handle. The wires on the handle are fine and the handle buttons are fine. The issue is inside the door. I will need to remove the door panel to find out more. Hopefully this can be a no parts required fix, but that will be some other time. 20210711_144044.jpg 2021...

Re: Cars that should be bought

That hydraulic power hard top is cool. Plus it has ABC suspension for extra....fluid.

Re: Cars that should be bought

It's kind of crazy that this same year SL with the same engine as my car was $40k more expensive.

Re: Cars that should be bought

I found this locally. It is extremely clean but also pricey.

Re: 04 E55 AMG: right rear door won't open from inside

Bad news. No the latch didn't fail and the issue did not recur. I rolled all the windows down yesterday because it was nice and Ian's window stopped about 2" from the bottom, made a nasty clunk and rolled down more. I was thinking, great, another regulator working on failure? You would think so...

Re: 04 E55 AMG: Restore TPMS system

Still the same and consistent with my last update. The display always comes up when I scroll to it, and, as previously mentioned, ALWAYS comes up with the Reactivate message when I start the car. Annoying (just press up or down on the steering wheel to clear) but the consistency and overall TPMS fun...
