We have a new GLE300d :) with
Option # 846 Brushed Aluminum Running Boards-($670.00)
& Option # 267 Illuminated Side Running Boards-($650.00)
They are not to my wife's liking....she has a hard time getting in and out of the vehicle. My MB dealer doesn't seem interested in removing them.
So far, I have been unable to find the replacement rocker panels for replacement when the running boards are removed.
I would almost give them to someone if they pay to have them replaced with the factory OEM rocker panels.....Has anyone else wished for no running boards??

**How do you program the ECO Stop in such a way that it stays OFF...and I don't have to push the button every time I start the engine?

Thanks,
Ken

You can probably try another dealership to see if they are willing to remove those running boards and order you a rocker panel.

As for the ECO Stop, there doesn't seem to be any way to turn if off permanently. The default ECO setting is essential for EPA credits and that's what Mercedes wants.

Hey Ken,
I have the OEM Rocker panels. I wonder if it's the same for GLE 350 and GLE 300d? It's your if you want it.

I think they should be around the 40ish mark? But perhaps you have a leak. How much pressure did you put in there? The tire pressures should be labeled in your owners manual, door jam, and it also helps to check the tires as well.

If pressure dropped that much then the first thing you want to do is check for punctures. Either do it yourself or take it into your dealer/wheel tire shop. Not always easy to check it yourself. Sometimes on a hoist with ability to spin the wheels makes it 100 times easier.

I think it's always better to go to a shop to get it done, at home all you can do is an outside plug, at a shop they can take the tire off the rim and do an inside patch. Much more effective.

It could be a faulty TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) sending unit. My wife's ML350 has had all four fail since new. Three died in the first 4 months.

I think I can speak for a good portion of Mercedes owners when I say just learn to live with it. A few friends of mine have run into similar issues on their E-Class sedans. Some resorted to checking pressures manually, or getting a shop to do it.

Considering the frequency of those things messing up (not only on MB vehicles) it's always a possibility. They're very sensitive and extremely finnicky and just a PITA all the time. If I could opt out of them, I always will. I frequently like to check everything over myself and I still check tire pressures with or without the TPMS.

Same here.

I just make it easy for myself and let the dealership do it along with other things like topping up the fluids and so on. Most MB dealers have no problem doing that especially if you bought from them. However most don't even run you through the system.

If it's convenient, then yeah it's always good to go to the dealers and let the advisor give it a quick look over, and they'll top up everything accordingly, in and out. A lot of times they don't even put it into a bay lol.

But what do you mean by run you through the system?

Run you through the system as in check to see if you bought from them or any Mercedes dealer for that matter. I heard sometimes they will only do top up's for free on their own customers and charge everyone else.

Correct tire pressures are listed on the gas filler door on my 2017 GLE43 AMG. The pressures listed on the door jam are not correct.
