New 300 SLK - Now what? What do I have?
OK, bought the wife a new 2011 300 SLK. Loaded with everything available. But being a motorhead of sorts, I surely would like to know more about the car. But MB seems to be rather stingy on what manuals it makes available. I have absolutely no plan on doing anywork myself on this gem (I do work on my 72 BMW and 93 Cadillac) but without ANY reference materials on the MB I can only "guess" where the battery is, what kind of lifters it has, O/H cam? Oil drain plug?
I can't find ANYTHING that will detail what I have !! Is the top hydraulic? Or electric?
Does anyone know where I can find even BASIC repair or reference manuals for a new SLK? I'm not asking for blueprints of Fort Knox (which I bet are easier to find, and cheaper) !!!
(My first post at this forum) Thanks All !!!
