Finally!!!

I finally got the son of a ***** hex bolt out. It took an air gun!

I also bought the column combination swifch. Itís quieter and much smoother when the turn cancels. It feels like a new car. Iím very happy with this mod!

Just completed the wheel upgrade myself in my 14 C250 Sport, but went from facelift wheel to facelift wheel with paddles. Love the paddles, makes you wonder why Mercedes didn't include them from the get-go. Easy install, took all of about 15 minutes.

Anyone looking for a facelift wheel without paddles? Ive got a spare now haha.

Will it work ?
It has different paddle shifters, and it is quite expensive.

How much and would you be willing to ship internationally? It's the flat bottom?

Yeah, flat bottom. Can ship internationally through work, but it can be expensive.

Lemme know how much you want plus shipping cost and I'll see. I've already got the A45 with suede but the flappers do nothing on my 5g 277.6 transmission.

Had some shipping issues in the beginning as the package was flagged at customs. Second time around using regular postal the package arrived with no issues.

When I originally went to install the clockspring everything worked until I turned the wheel left. After discussing it with Chris, it was decided the clockspring needed to be zero'd out. So after a few weeks, I finally took my car into a local shop that had the hardware to check the angle. Sure enough, the clockspring was off by alot. Luckily, I never turned the wheel too fast or violently so I was able to not break anything inside. Zero'd out the clockspring and installed the wheel and everything is working with the exception of the paddle shifters, I don't think my car is capable of utilizing them so I need to see if I can find a metal shop to make me some paddle deletes.
Can you explain the procedure for "zero out the clockspring' ? Is this an install issue or software related? A week or so after installing wheel, I get ESP, Brake (ABS) errors.

[QUOTE=henry666;7470870]You have scan tool, so no need to disconnect car battery, and airbag won't expose during plug in.

First remove car key and remove column,
install just the new column, (not install steering wheel)
insert key turn to position 1,
test turn signal and wiper switch !
use tool read angle sensor live data, see if you can get angle reading.... <-- most important!

I have tried some wrong column, turn signal and wiper also work.

if you done this, we can move on.

[/QUTE]

When I go into a left turn, I hear two clicks. Once I compete the turn the turn signal cancels. That does not seem normal. Thoughts?

I have ESP and Brake Errors 1 week later.
