The Difference Between

What is the difference between the C-class the E-class and the S-class Mercedes Benz cars?

The Mercedes C class is a car that you can use everyday, because its small, powerful with a V6, and luxury. Varying whether you get the C300, which comes with standard RWD or optional 4-matic. In the C300, you will not get a standard navigation or multimedia package, you will get (standard) driver and passenger heated seats, Bluetooth, climate control, sunroof, and disk changer. But in the C350 you will get all of these options plus a more powerful engine, navigation system, and special designed rims. You can also purchase the c63 amg, which comes with all of the features in the 350 + better rims, a V8, RWD, and a panorama roof.

The Mercedes E Class, is better in terms of luxury and performance. Its basically a C350 Saloon with extra packages and more performance and luxury. But the E class is not a everyday car.

The Mercedes S Class is the most luxurious and the best performer, coming with an standard v8 or an optional v12 or v6 hybrid engine. In the S- class you will get all of the options that you would normally get from the e550. More luxury. But the S class is for busness use, and is not a normal everyday car. It depends on you, would you want to drive a powerful car around on busy streets risking getting your $90,000 car scraped?

Is Napa Power Steering Fluid 9800 ok for an Audi?

No. Get the Pentosin CHF 7.1 and CHF 11S fluids or Audi VW power steering hydraulic fluid part number G 002 000 or you may want Bilstein 08972. It is a select non-synthetic hydraulic steering fluid which has similar properties to CHF 11S with the exception of synthetic mineral oil blend vs non-synthetic mineral oil blend and thus, should be changed more frequently.

Why doesn't your transmission change gears?

my 1998 ford escort has had this problem for a couple days and I went to Shucks and borrowed their fail code sensor for free. when I hooked up the code sensor, it said that our shift solenoid was failing. So, your shift solenoid may have gone out if you have an automatic transmission.

There are 3 plates that will need to come off. The 1st of the plates is the outer black plate that you see when looking striaght at the headlight. It will have 3 screws you need to take out. the second plate is underneath the 1st plate. it holds the headlight in place. there are 4 screws, 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom; take all these out. Before you can remove this plate you must the the obsured 3rd plate out. This plate is tucked almost inside the the frame. take the 3 screws out and pull down and out, this may be difficult. the headlight can then be pulled out and unplugged then replaced by the new light. do the opposite order to put it all back.

Does a v or h rating change the performance of the tire?

The "h" or "v" rating is the speed rating on the tire.. the later in the alphabet the higher the speed rating.. h rated tires are the lowest rated and are not reccomended for high speed driving... Z rated tires are the highest rated and are reccomended for prolonged high speed driving .. think autobahn. ---------------- Beginning in 1991, the speed symbol denoting a fixed maximum speed capability of new tires must be shown only in the speed rating portion of the tire's service description, such as 225/50R16 89S. The most common tire speed rating symbols, maximum speeds and typical applications are shown below: ---------------- M - 81 mph - 130 km/h ---------------- N - 87 mph - 140km/h --- Temporary Spare Tires ---------------- P - 93 mph - 150 km/h ---------------- Q - 99 mph - 160 km/h --- Studless & Studdable Winter Tires ---------------- R - 106 mph - 170 km/h --- H.D. Light Truck Tires ---------------- S - 112 mph - 180 km/h --- Family Sedans & Vans ---------------- T - 118 mph - 190 km/h --- Family Sedans & Vans ---------------- U - 124 mph - 200 km/h ---------------- H - 130 mph - 210 km/h --- Sport Sedans & Coupes ---------------- V - 149 mph - 240 km/h --- Sport Sedans, Coupes & Sports Cars ---------------- When Z-speed rated tires were first introduced, they were thought to reflect the highest tire speed rating that would ever be required, in excess of 240 km/h or 149 mph. While Z-speed rated tires are capable of speeds in excess of 149 mph, how far above 149 mph was not identified. That ultimately caused the automotive industry to add W- and Y-speed ratings to identify the tires that meet the needs of new vehicles that have extremely high top-speed capabilities. ---------------- W - 168 mph - 270 km/h --- Exotic Sports Cars ---------------- Y - 186 mph - 300 km/h --- Exotic Sports Cars ----------------

What does the Mercedes-Benz badge mean?

It stand for the three modes of transportion. By land, by air, and by sea. It's called 'the three-pointed star,' This came about when Gottlieb Daimer was staring into the sky one day and decided it should be a star Addendum:

It is a three pointed star, but was not arbitrarily decided. It symbolizes Daimler's pursuit of transportation over Land, Sea and Air. Three mediums, three points on the star.

Abs warning light comes on sometimes when driving and computer says take to garage dealer says ignore itbut its a bit worrying?

If your getting a ABS malfunction, "drive to workshop" you definitely need to take the car in, if the ABS light is on, this means that the ABS (anti-lock braking system) is not in operation. There should be some codes that a dealer could pull out, but I would not ignore this issue. However, the S-Class Mercedes from 92 to 99 (140 chassis) has a computer that if it senses a short, or grounding problem, can turn on the ABS check light as well as the Engine or OBD (On Board Diagnosis) check engine light. If this is the case, you can stop the car, turn off the engine, and restart the engine. If it is an intermittent fault code, the light will go out - at least for a while. However, if it is an ABS failure, the light will come back on immediately when you turn the key and not go out when the engine starts.

How do you fix a rear window that went off track on a 99 S 320 Mercedes?

Take the inside door panel off..... First remove small cover that fits over one Phillips head screw below the arm rest. Remove the cover behind the inside door handle. Remove the screw there. unscrew the push down door lock. now, from the bottom of the panel, gently pull the door panel back away from the door. there are small, white, plastic clips, along the edge that hold the pannel. just pull away. lift the panel and disconnect the wire that leads to the latch. disconnect wires to the speaker, small light below, and power window switch. now take off black sheet of plastic. connect back the switch by itself so you can move the window track up and down. reach in and replace glass into track. use some clear caulking, and spread into track.(not much is needed). make sure that you place the glass back in the exact previous location. reverse process to install the door panel.

What is average life of Mercedes brake rotors?

If you are worried about that, then you probably should buy a honda.

ANS 2 -With average driving and changing pads as soon as required, I would expect Mercedes rotors to last as long as the car (or at least 20 years.)

What does the 'S' stand for?

Large Sedan.

S also perhaps stands for "SUPER" meaning it required higher octane gas for the high compression engines, and may be also because of its opulence. I guess no one really know where it came from. But what is for certain is that the L (in 300SEL, 400 SEL etc.) stands for a long version of the sedan which has a wheelbase that is a few inches longer than the regular sedans. Since the W140s were introduced the L has follen into obscurity and S classes are now offered with a single length wheelbase: sad!

the 'L' has not been dropped from the line and can still be had. As for what the 'S' stands for it means that the sedan or saloon depending on which country you come from and the 'E' in 'SEL' stands for electronic fuel injection these letters have stood for these meaning since they were first put on the back of the flagships of Mercedes Benz

How do you replace the hood ornament?

After you buy the new ornament, to take the old one out, get a small Phillips head screwdriver and a big, soft rag. Basically, you just use the rag to keep from scratching the paint on the hood as you work the screwdriver (may be easier with two) underneath the ornament, and slowly work it up enough that it just pops right out.

The ornament has two posts at the 3 and 9 o'clock position. Work evenly at these two points. An alternative to the screwdriver and rag are silicon tools that won't scratch the paint. These can be purchased on BavAuto.com
