  2. Roof Hydraulics replaced, top stops after roof unlocks

  3. Roof Hydraulics replaced, top stops after roof unlocks

    R170 SLK-Class
    So got the cylinders from tophydraulics.com and got them replaced, now I'm having one issue. When starting the "down" cycle, I press the red button, the trunk opens, the roof unlocks but only moves back an inch or so and stops. I release the switch, then press it again and it then completes the...
  4. Trunk Lid not closing on roof engagement - help

    R170 SLK-Class
    So I finally got it closed. The main lifts blew their seals. So I worked with it so that it would finish the "close" cycle so the rear quarter windows would go up and its weather tight. Now just need to get the time to order the rebuilt cylinders and get to work.

    R170 SLK-Class
    So it finally happened. 170K Miles on my 2001 SLK320. I drove in to work today with the top down. I rarely take the top down as usually I'm on the motorcycle in good weather, but there are days I enjoy my sporty ride. Any way, get to the job parking lot, hit the button and i t t a k e s f o...
  6. Trim Parts Source

    R170 SLK-Class
    Anyone have a good trim parts source in the states? I just noticed the black trim that goes around the base of the roll-over bar cracked loose. I started looking for parts and parts diagram and so far, cannot find a part number, much less, anyone that has one. I also noticed the lower part of...

    WEll, my joy has been short lived. Today the CEL came back on and I wrote down the code. Now I have two codes - the original and a special new one. The original one is back P0410. The new one is U0900. Anyone have a clue on these two? I'm sure they are related.
  9. trunk won't open: another solution

    R170 SLK-Class
    Sorry - for the stupid question, but please clarify - what do you mean "bridged?" I hope I never need this but great investigative work!
  10. Install projector halo angel eye headlights on 1999 SLK

    R170 SLK-Class
    Billy22Bob - if you can find someone to ship to OZ but dont have the RH drive set up, see page 12 of this thread for KENZ modification to swap the light shield block inside the light for RH applications.

    R170 SLK-Class
    Anyone having issues with the black "insulation" goo they put in the wiring harness melting? I'm on my second set of these "VIP" brand and whatever stuff they put in the wiring harness to insulate the terminals from each other and hold them straight is melting out. Did I wire something wrong...
  12. Check Engine Light

    R170 SLK-Class
    2001 SLK320 So I know this is an old thread but I actually believe I finally found the cause. I WISH I could remember the code number that I had pulled (every time the CEL came on and I checked it, it was the same code) and the description was something along the lines of "Secondary air system"...
  13. LED Tail-lights, Dash light fault indicator light on

    R170 SLK-Class
    I found another seller on ebay that has this transformer pictured. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1998-2004-Mercedes-Benz-R170-SLK230-SLK320-Red-LED-Tail-Lights-Lamps-Left-Right/131770120458?hash=item1eae1c790a:g:xc4AAOSw9KpXAHAl&vxp=mtr
  14. LED Tail-lights, Dash light fault indicator light on

    R170 SLK-Class
    I'll try to get a pic of them installed. You can see the back of the light on the ad, and there's nothing special about the install except the large transformer that is not pictured. Perhaps I can pull the panel and post a pic of that box as well as them installed.
  15. LED Tail-lights, Dash light fault indicator light on

    R170 SLK-Class
    UPDATE - I had requested that they replace one of the assemblies because the QC had missed the lense to backing mating area and it created a 1/4" gap in the area which was in the rain channel of the trunk lid. I was afraid this would simply lend itself to fill the light and sooner or later the...
