Is this brake problem apply only to the first 12 months or is it an additional bulletin to fix squeaking brakes during the 4 yr warranty? My dealer says it only applies to the 1st 12months and won't replace the pads. They also say that they aren't familar with the number LI42.10-P-O4862424 JAN10. Where did this bulletin come from?
Thanks, cliff4781

One Button Push To Open and Close The Sunroof

I know when I had my BMW 750LI, I could push the sunroof button once to open or close it, but on my S550 I can push button once to open it and in order to close it I have to hold the button. I don't know if this is a true issue or not, I may just need to get it reprogram? Does any one else have this same issue?

Thanks,
Tony

Tony, I have the same issue. When I had the CL63 AMG, it did it automatically.. I'm sure 2009+ S-class has it automatic closing too.

On our previous S550, it wasn't necessary to press and hold the switch to close the sunroof.

Tony,

I think I had this issue after picking my '07 at the auction. I believe there is a position sensor resynchronization procedure involved. Have you tried opening the sunroof and then holding the button down to close, then once closed hold the button down in closing position for something like 7-10 seconds? I think I got the condition to clear up after I did that and the closing of the sunroof became a one-touch operation. Certainly the dealer would know my way doesn't work.

Hey Serge,

I tried the resynchronization procedure, but it didn't work so I guess I'm going to have to head to the dealership.

Thanks,
Tony

If attempt to synchronize fails, dealer may need to clean & lubricate for express-operation to function normally.
