Hello All.

Just a word of caution. My SLK had a very slight dent in the roof, which I only saw around a week after deliver. I took it to MB and told them that it was probably some mechanism in the boot pressing against the top of the roof to cause this slight dent. They ofcourse denied this and said it was probably a shopping bag! (I would never put a shopping bag on my roof) Anyway last week it seems the left fan (attached to the backboard that opens and closes as the roof opens and closes) completely gave up and stayed closed when the roof opened (it should have fanned out when the roof is opened) This caused a huge dent in the roof. It appears that some of these "fans" are not completely aligned from the factory and may go off their hinges once in a while like mine did. A whole new part is now on order for me from germany.

I am confused. In a previous post re paint problems, you stated that MB is going to replace your entire car to be delivered in March. Is this a separate problem that they are going to repair plus give you a new car?

My "fans" were not working correctly especially one side, kept disengaging from the holders. Took the dealer hours to adjust almost right.

yes it is being replaced. However I am using the original one until my new SLK arrives. This problem occured now and has to be fixed in the interim it seems!

Can someone post a picture - I do not have my 350 yet but would like to check this alignment at the factory. Problem is I really do not know what fans you're talking about.
