Most mechanical diy for rwd C34's is the same as R33/R34.

Check the DI/how to thread in the main SAU forum.

What are you trying to do that you can't figure out?

Or do you just want people to spend heaps of time making tutorials on stuff that isn't required just on the off chance it might help you in the future?

There's a thread on a manual conversion.

It's all the same as awd, except no transfer case or front tail shaft.

anybody know what the little steering wheel switch is for on a c34 s2 tiptronic auto?

Yeah it enables the gears to be changed via the steering wheel controls when the shifter is pushed to the left.

How to repair seat switches in the M35 Stagea.

You MUST find someone with a proper, professional quality desoldering iron. The switches are pure copper and will suck up heat easily. Seat_1.JPG

Steps:

 

·        1)  Remove seat.

·        2)  Remove switch PCB from seat.

·         3) Remove switches from PCB.

·        4)  CAREFULLY lever switches apart (I used a Stanley™ knife blade), taking care not allow springs to end up 10 Metres away, by removing the switch cover.

·         5 Burnish and clean the switch contacts.

·         6) Condition switch contacts with De-Oxit™ or equivalent.

·         7) Allow to sit for a few minutes.

·         8) Clean off excess De-Oxit™.

·         9) Place a minute segment of Blu-Tack™ on the end of the two springs and re-insert.

·        

 

·         Here is where you need 4 hands:

·         10) Place a loop of strong cotton (I don’t like using mon-filaments, but use whatever you like – it must be fine enough to allow the switch cover to be re-installed whilst the cotton is in place) around one end of the switch body.  

·         11) Replace the two switch levers and ball bearings.

·         12) Install both switch actuators.

·         13) Ask you second pair of hands to place a second loop of cotton around the other end of the switch.

·         14) Both switch actuators should be reasonably secure at this point.

·         15) Replace the switch cover.

·         16) Cut the cotton.

·         1 - 16) Repeat as necessary for other switches.

·         17) Re-install on seat.

·         18) Re-install seat.

 

Happy days.
