    Hello! I'm in Houston and I'm looking for a rebuilt front valve block for my 2003 SL 500. Is that a something you sell? I'm not sure that my current block in condition to be rebuilt.

    Thanks in advance.

    JNash, I have a 2002 S55. The ABC valves need to be rebuilt. I see the list of sizes of o rings. The large odd ring at the base of two of the valves have cracked. Do you have a source for these rings? Do you rebuild these rings for others? if so i would consider sending to you the units. Thanks, Rick

    good afternoon

    I caught some of your posts and you mentioned in your sig that you're keen to mod your seat fans. In case you're interested to see how another S55 owner did his, here is a link to some pics of when I did mine. Long story short, it took about $25 and an hour, per seat.

    Hope you find it useful - cheers!

    Do you have the start button on the top of your gear select knob? if not then the upgrade is alot more difficult since you will need many parts and its not worth it. If you do have the start button just buy a keyless go module from a 2004 or above from ebay. Buy a new kG key and have the dealer or anyone with star configure the new KL key with the 2004+ keylessgo module.

    What part number is needed to replace the Keyless go module for my 2002 S55 so my Smart key works. I do not have the card but have the new silver key. Does the antenna needs to be replaced also? How do I know my module is outdated? Thank you.

    No, fluid only moves when a suspension movement occurs. Rodeo can be searched on Youtube. It exercises the suspension and removes all the air from the hydraulic system.
    It can be performed anyplace with anyone who has a STAR DAS diagnostic system.
    You replace the filter before the Rodeo that catches any debris during the rodeo, and then install a new one afterwards for when you are driving it normally.

    Is it true that fluid only return to the reservoir when the suspension moves? I thought it will circulate when the car is running? Btw, what's the rodeo setup consists of? A computer & software? Can this setup be done at home or has to be done at the dealer or shop? May I also ask why you have to replace the filter twice? Is the 2nd one if you do a rodeo test to get rid of the residual contaminants? Thanks.

    I didn't figure it out and i hasn't leaked since. I think there must be some over pressure purge safety vale in one of the pipes someplace or maybe the pump itself.
    Anyway, it doesn't hurt to flush it. Make sure you use two new filters. It fluid only returns to the reservoir when the suspension moves - that's why you need to rodeo it. It is quite manageable but always have someone help you to have the next open ready can of new fluid ready. You will need 12-14 liters in total. Keep doing it until you see fresh green fluid coming back on the return.

    Did you ever figured out what caused the extra ABC fluid on the floor? May I ask how did you do the rodeo? If I just flush the old fluid out by having the return hose in a large bucket & keep filling the reservoir w/ the engine running until I see clean fluid comes out then replace the filter. Will this be sufficient? Btw, how fast does it drains with the engine running? Mine is an 02 CL500 with new pump, valve blocks & hoses installed about 2 yrs ago. The car is great. No sagging at all at any corners even if I let it sits for weeks but every now & then I've got the ABC message when I started the car up but the message is cleared after I shut it off & re-started again. My indy told me the fluid is clean & no need to flush it but I'm thinking about flushing it as a preventative maintenance so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
