Re: D3 airbag light

Happened on my Sprinter. It was the seat buckle that had a bad connection - maybe the microswitch within. On the Sprinter the seat buckle is connected to the airbag module. The module expects to see 400ohms when buckle is unlatched and 100ohms when latched - guess there is a small circuit of resisto...

Re: Slow (front) wipers ... who’s the culprit

My guess would be the linkage. Had this happen on my Hyundai van, and apparently the bushings was made of aluminium which reacted to steel bolts going through them and expanded. Had it cleaned out and it worked again. Have not heard of that on the disco though...
