Re: MB W204 / W203 / W202 Owners

... So my SRS check light came on for a moment and then went off ...

Gonna get it scanned. Hoping it a low voltage / weak battery issues and nothing more.

Galvanised might have to be removed and framing re-done and then sheeting.

Get someone to check the quality of the rafters to determine how bad it is.

Thanks Ru$$el.

The Anker reviews has been good.
