Although I haven't opened the SLK door panel yet, normally they have plastic fasteners at the bottom and a hook rail at the top. You need a trim tool to open the bottom first. The armrest may have three to four hidden screws that you need to find the caps first. Almost all modern doors are made this way.
With that said, using a dent removal service is the best. They can do this without opening the door panel. Removing the trim panel may cause minor rattles etc.
I recently had PDR done on my passenger car door. My passenger had opened the car door all the way and didn't realise there was a metal bench next to the door. Sharp dent results Got the PDR guy to come out to have a look at it, and he said from the start that he could minimise the dent, but because metal stretches, it won't be 100%. Fair enough.
He undid some screws on the metal cover just below the door lock pins and just stuck a metal pole in through there and got the dent out that way. Now, there's just a small dint where the dent was, which is not that noticeable unless u look for it.
Thanks for advice - I thought what the heck and booked it in but Pulp fiction comes to mind...
I just wish I caught 'em doin' it, ya know? Oh man, I'd give anything to catch 'em doin' it. It' a been worth him doin' it, if I coulda just caught 'em, you know what I mean?..."
For those who live in SF, if unfortunate dents happen to you, there's a guy who works in BMW of San Francisco's parking lot who does what I consider pure magic. (He said the arrangement is that he does it for all BMW new vehicles for free as sometimes they arrive with dents, and in exchange, BMW lets him use the lot.) I had an Audi with a huge dent from a big SUV's sharp door angle, and after PDR, I couldn't find a trace of it. Make sure you go to a PDR technician that's good - as it's really all in the skill of the technician. This guy at BMW SF worked on the dent for about 45 minutes, and with all these reflection-mirror tools, etc. to make sure it's perfect from all angle. He also sprayed on little bit of water to see the flow, etc. It really was amazing to watch the dent disappear completely. The car was as good as brand new after PDR.
The car was driving fine, then suddenly the check engine light came on and the car lost some power and I could feel it like it was missing or shaking the engine.
It drove like crap until I got home. I turned off the car then started it back up to drive into the garage, the check engine light...
I noticed that my rear turn signal light and the right license plate light is not working. I tried checking the bulbs, and the contacts. The contacts are not getting power. Also, i checked the fuses and all of them are good. It seems like an odd problem that only 2 bulbs are not getting...
I live in Korea and recently bought 2005 r171 slk55 amg, which was firstly sold in USA. It must have had several owners, so I don't know much of its history and have a question of its speedometer. Please see attached picture.
I don't know if this instrument cluster was replaced one...
