    Here's what evilution says about it...

    https://www.evilution.co.uk/Info/not...ng_reverse.htm

    I only had it once in two years but I am not sure I had the same thing I as couldn't select 1 or R whereas this issue is with selecting R only. Selecting 1 works fine.

    I use my car once a week so over two years that's just over 100 starts and only once did I have a problem.

    It needs networked diagnostics, so unless you fancy a drive to somerset to see us then it will need to be main dealers I'm afraid!

    Up to the 2014 update can be done without network. All updates since 2010? have cured the problem.

    Need some advice guys, mine has been getting worse over the last few weeks so I got a quote for a software update from a local independent and they want 88 for an hours labour.

    I fear it may be the clutch however as it never used to be this bad and if it were the software surely it would have been happening a lot more as I have had the car over 2 years.

    So is it worth me taking the risk and having the software updated for 88 I don't know what version is currently installed anyway could be a more up to date version anyway.

    You definitely need to have the software patch applied before doing anything else.

    It needs to be the genuine Merc thing too, don't just hand over 88 to someone who says they will put it on 'their computer'

    It may be all that is needed , but you won't know unless you apply it...

    End of.

    They proudly claim on their website "We are the only Independent repairer that has genuine factory diagnostic machines and software licences."

    I think they are ok, not some cowboys.

    88 aint so bad but what you need to do is get them to teach the clutch for no extra charge, they should do that.

    If they won't then go and find someone else to do it, most people with Xentry can offline update for vehicles up to 2014.

    What does that mean? Doesn't it do the teaching as part of the software update? I found this youtube video of the software update process...

    It does not do the clutch automatically but they should do it, you need to make sure that they intend to. The gearbox teach can be forced without the diagnostic equipment but the clutch can't.

    The video is not actually doing a car, it is in demo mode.

    Just heard from the main dealer, they want 78.75 for the software update but it took them a couple of days to reply. I've already booked it in with the independent for 88.20.

    No worries in any case as the main dealer is 6 miles out of town whereas the independent is just round the corner so worth the 10 extra due to convenience.
