  1. I am looking at by-passing the N11-3 connector as Pin 11 seems to have erratic connectivity issues. I am hoping someone could point to where in the SAM I would terminate this to. Thanks, George
  2. Well, that worked for fixing that issue, but my non working brake lights are back. have you been able to source the fuse holders in Alberta: Also wondering if you know where I can source a replacement wiring harness with a N11-3 connector with cable? Is this something MB carries in stock?
  3. Perfect...likely my problem Thanks for the info
  4. I recently had issues with my SAM, where one of the pins had fused together with an adjacent pin. This was impacting the brake with (No brake lights) I removed the SAM and considered bi-passing the wire as per a thread on clubsmartcar, but thought I would start with cleaning up the connection and try that out first. This seems to have worked, with one exception When I remove the key from the ignition, the dash remains lit. No values show, just the templated circles and other parts of the display. I lock the doors, it stays on, 24/7. Is there a power lead that is feeding this? Any thoughts as to how to resolve the issue? Thanks, George
  5. Any tips on removing the gas lines, other than lots of paper towels to soak up the diesel?
  6. I have a 2006 CDi, which is running in limp mode. The tech at the service department identified the high pressure fuel pump as the culprit. Instead of forking out the nearly 2K to have them replace it, I'd like to try and have a go at removing it myself, replacing the seals and re-installing. If anyone could share documentation specific to the HPFP, it would be greatly appreciated. Any suggested tips as well? Thanks
  7. I see a Bosch available in the UK for under $600 CAD Has anyone looked at aftermarket fuel pumps? fuel-injection-pump-high-pressure-pump
  8. Just ordered an eBay version. Thanks the the files though...I keep them for future reference
  9. Can anyone suggest new front strut and spring set, prebuilt? I'd prefer not to buy from the dealer, so appreciate any suggestions.
