2003 E55 AMG
Thumbs down

Removed fuse & didn't do anything. Looked into the Xentry and that software isn't cheap nor does it look any fun to try to do. Looked around local to see if anyone has this software and came up with nothing in PA. Wondering if my local MB dealer would have that setup but fear what they would charge me for reprogramming. Ready want my SOS code and airmatic code gone with 0 malfunctions.

As someone who doesn't own a beautiful W211 (yet), but is using the forum for research, I thank you for taking the time to fix the links in the thread. Photobucket must not have realize the ripple effect that their (stupid) decision would have on communities like this one.

Wonderful thread and so interesting to see all of your mods. I'm wanting to do distronic myself and hoping to do it this year. I tried looking for part numbers for the trunk rail system. Do you have the part numbers or have a way to get a hold of Steve who aparently does know the part numbers? I definetly need to get that.

left side rail plus bar (or whatever u call it)


right side rail


trunk overview when not in use


pieces that attach to the rail in order to connect the bar and roller
these are aluminum finish... NOT plastic...

hello, I wanted to ask where I can get the rails for w211 trunk or maybe you know the part number for that
