i think these to be some common problems with slk's do you guys agree, im asking because a friend of mine fell in love with my car, now wants to buy one and wants to know some common issues, so here we go:

1. Interior peeling
2. Vibration
3. tail/brake-light problems
4. MAF Sensor

what do you guys think? do you consider those as common?

i think its more related to the "type " of slk he is looking at. for instance some common issues for slk may be
top issues ie: hydraulic cylinders leaking seals cracking hinges stiff
brakes and services performed.
slk32 issues are intercooler pump, lower a arm bushings
230 issues k40 relay in some older issues pse pump and water damage issues

ithink all of these issues are just quirks of the cars built. with forums like this it appears all these issues are small and fairly easy to fix.

Here's my list - posted before but owners are changing - I hope I don't have to add that roof ram seals are becoming a very common problem!!

The basics of the R170 are the same as the W202 - C class (same
engine/trans/brakes/diff/suspension.) so a Haynes book (3511) is
handy(no kompressor inf.)-- there is no manual in hard copy for the SLK but copies of Benz WIS disks can be found on Ebay - I got the set of 2 - never use them - dreadful to navigate but may help one day

>>>>>>>> Transmission -change fluid between 30-50k is good as insurance (jerky first couple of cold changes - normal)

>>>>>>>> Coolant change is vital - every 3yrs - use Benz coolant - cheap

>>>>>>>> If it starts throwing codes/running rough - Maf is first suspect.

>>>>>>>> Oil type air filter might cause Maf contamination - min benefit

>>>>>>>> Oil separator can be cleaned to ensure no oil gets to Maf - easy

>>>>>>>> Starting/stalling - look at crank pos. sensor or cam pos. sensor

>>>>>>>> Brake pads, easy - Brake fluid flush at 2 yrs - easy cheap job

>>>>>>>> Engine mounts are oil filled and can go at 140K kms+ - quite easy

>>>>>>>> Drive belts (2) at 100k kms - 10 min job - belts cheap

>>>>>>>> At 100+ k kms, consider the lower front susp rubbers - knocking
noise when braking hard (Dealer job)

>>>>>>>> Any noise from engine at start up is likely to be belt tensioner
brgs (2) - $30 fix - easy- Idler bearing is bought as a complete unit (easy fix but $60)

>>>>>>>> Kompressor runs until engine heats up (can feel noisy)- otherwise
cuts in at about 2300 rpm - (pre face lift models)

_____________SLK SPECIFIC________________________

>>>>>>>> Peeling console paint - all 6 colours are avail. - easy and perfect
$40 fix.

>>>>>>>> Shocks might be shot at 120k kms+ - easy install -KYBs - $300 USD from Tirerack, really worth it

>>>>>>>> IMPORTANT - use short wheel bolts in tool kit if fitting the
emergency spare wheel - using std wheel bolts will cause serious damage !

>>>>>>>> Important to keep PSE dry (pneumatic pump for central locking etc) - RH side trunk - under jack in foam jacket - Usual problem is a leaky trunk seal or aggressive hose washing - some guys wrap in plastic or mount upside down.

>>>>>>>> The K40 relay sometimes has an issue with 2 dry solder joints -
again fairly easy fix by checking and re soldering

>>>>>>>> Noisy diff/transm. sound is nearly always tyres -aggressive tread
is bad news - many posts on this. Soft tyres also aggravate the noise -you can tell when tyres need air by the sound.

>>>>>>>> Roof has 5 hydraulic rams - oil level inspection RH side in trunk - unusual to have to have to top up- generally reliable.(ram seals fixable) Any problems with roof - check switches first - Lube all hinges with silicone spray and cycle roof regularly- (lube 4 locking hooks also)

>>>>>>>> Clean rubbers where roof joins and lube with Krytox grease (dupont) (dont use ordinary grease on rubber) Lubing the rubbers will get rid of nearly all creaking - notice how quiet your car is after washing or rain

>>>>>>>> Rattle behind seat is usually 2 rubber blocks fallen out where window touches the parcel shelf (in trunk) -1 minute

>>>>>>>> Lights behind heater controls can be changed by pulling knobs off

>>>>>>>> Lights behind speedo cluster is fiddly but do-able -2 large 15 small

>>>>>>>> Headlights can mist up after washing (they have to breathe)- silicone bead down vert join on lights is cheap invisible fix - 2 min.

>>>>>>>> Loose indicator stalk is a remove steering wheel job - quite easy 2
bolts for airbag and 3 for stalk - large allen key for st/wheel (IMPORTANT - disconnect battery)

>>>>>>>> Door trims can creak/armrest come loose - easy fix - remove trims & re-glue armrest and other bits. - zero cost

looked up the manual 3511, it is the not for R170 in the sense that the engine is different. The title states NOT FOR KOMPREESOR!

It's a clip! I think Bazzle wrote something about this with some pictures showing the clip/tab. You have to open the leather cover to see the broken tab. Search under his name :rolleyes:

You are absolutely right - I should have added that in the list (now changed)- Regrettably, to the best of my knowledge, Haynes do not publish a Kompressor C Class manual so it is a bit of a compromise.

For any engine work not involving Kompressor bits, it is very handy tho'

Bruce, thanks for the pictures.

I recently bought the Haynes C Class Manual. As you go through it you begin to see how many of the components and systems are either common to both cars or are fairly close and it's well illustrated. It's definitely worth a look.

Great list Oberio, I have owned my SLK 320 now for 4 months and was considering purchasing an extended warrenty because of the perceived complexity of the car.($2700) Instead I have purchased a fliud extractor (Mityvac) for oil changes and Break fluid flush and have begun to copy and paste together an excellent "manual" for the car, including your list. I have looked at the PSE and will do some preventitive maintainance based on information availible here as well as some other things(roof stuff etc.)

Applying knowledge instead of cash to the maintainance of this car is satisfying and fun. Now the complexity of the engineering is not so intimidating, rather inspiring, after seeing how people on this forum share their experience and knowledge. These cars are great fun to drive as well as work on. $2700 can buy alot of parts and tools.



Zen and SLK Maintainance oooooohhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmm I'm converted....literally :)

Look in the w210 forum for 722.6 sticky, how to change the fluid - look at post by Yumling for optimal fluid change, quantity and type of fluid, etc. Type of fluid especially important! You also have to buy or make a dipstick. It does not stay in place, but is only used to measure the level.
