    R172 SLK Luggage cover

    Hi I picked up some Holts Silicone Spray from my local motor factors for £3.99. https://www.holtsauto.com/holts/products/silicone-spray/ States it's for lots of things including rubber seals around convertible roof, doors etc, so just give it a go with that whilst the weather was good...

    Yes good point, I'll pick some up and give it a try. Any ideas which is the best or is it a case of any will do?

    R172 SLK Luggage cover

    Pretty sure it's the luggage cover. More of a creaking noise than a rattle really, when I think about it.

    R172 SLK Luggage cover

    Thanks, I had considered something like that, but it's how to fix them to last, as the catches are being opened/closed quite regularly

    No, it seems to be correctly engaged on both sides, but there is a bit of play and I can't see any adjustment.

    Does anybody have any tips on how to stop the rattling of the luggage cover when it is closed. I assume it is coming from one of the catches, but it's damn irritating

    DAB still cutting out after dealer update

    I have heard that said before, however I am using the same dash cam & wiring kit that I had in my E220 and the DAB in that was perfect. I am convinced this is an SLK issue in my case. Could be down to the fact the antenna is within the windscreen, hence why I am going to try another antenna...

    DAB still cutting out after dealer update

    Hi Until recently, I had a 65 plate E220 Bluetec and never had problems with the DAB radio. I now take the same route to work in my SLK and lose reception in 3 or 4 locations on that journey. My issue could be down to the fact that the antenna is in the windscreen, which I don't think are as...

    SLK Glass roof

    Hi All I have read on another forum that in many cases, you can change the headliner in the SLK so you can access the panoramic glass roof which is now fitted as standard. At some point in 2014, MB started to fit a black foil to the underside of the glass roof possibly to stop this DIY...

    DAB still cutting out after dealer update

    In my case I have had the dealer replace the DAB antenna which has made some improvement, but I still lose signal ( BBC 5 Live) in weak areas and my dash cam which is hard wired can sometimes cause problems. I have ordered another DAB antenna as suggested by gIzzE a member on this forum...
