So, I've been having some problems with my SL. When I came back home the other night, the doors would not lock when I used the Key Card. So I tried with the key, but still the same problem. The indicators would flash as if the alarm was engaged, but the doors would not lock.

I took it to my dealer today and they checked it all out and told me what the problem could be... water leaking through the trunk.

I know one or two of you have had this problem, but I'm sure there must be more. Mercedes must be aware of this, so why after already announcing 2 recalls did they not address this previously?

I'm pretty annoyed as I don't get my car back until Wednesday...

How about a month. I am taking my car in next week to get my leak fix. On both attempts, it has taken over 2 weeks to get the parts in.

Call Mercedes customer care and report the trunk leaking problem. Of course, they will say it is the first time they herd this.

Go here and see how many folks have leaking trunks. Take out the spaces

My 2005 Sl 500 had a terrible time with the trunk leaking water. I had to have it serviced twice from the dealer. The first time they adjusted the rear deck lid which did nothing. The second time they had to replace the decklid and entire rear glass window.

It doesn't leak anymore, but what a pain! Interestingly enough, the water only leaked in when I took it to the car wash.
