    Hey, Recently I have noticed my SL is having issues. When I start the car I can feel the car shaking a little but I thought it was a regular thing. I pressed on the gas but the car struggles and it gets a delayed throttle. As I press it, it’s not instant. It’ll rev a few seconds later. I took...

    So my dad has a early 90's SL500 which no longer accepts the key into the ignition. It looks like something within the lock is blocking the key. We need to move the car and it seems impossible if the key is blocked from the ignition. Has anyone else had this issue and know of a solution?

    I am doing my valve cover gaskets and I have these photos of a decent amount of sludge. I whipped some of it off with a clean shop rag. Maybe that wasn't the best idea but I just did it a little on one side. That being said I was wondering how you guys would proceed? May I continue to get the...

    Hello, Sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find information on it. I broke the left side door mirror backing out of the garage this morning (the metal frame part, unfortunately) and I'm wondering if I could mount the mirror from a 90-96 SL, as there seem to be many more of those...

    Forgive me if there is an article already on this but I have not been able to find it on my own. I have just replaced all of the hydraulic cylinders on my 2000 SL500 and the soft top retracts completely as designed. When erecting the top everything works as it should until the front of the soft...

    Hi, I’m looking for where the cables to the dash speakers end. I believe they were for the phone and that the phone had a transmitter box. Anyone know where that box was located? the dash control unit and handheld device in the console have been removed. Cables there seem to be in place. thanks

    Hello, I have a USA 96 sl500, it has OBDII and OBDI ports. I recently got the icarsoft cr pro hoping it could reset a SRS code but I wasn't able to do that. The OBDII port only reads basic emission data and as I understand the rest of the modules can be read from the OBDI port, so I bought a...
