    R170 Gearbox issues

    Sorry my fault, should have been clearer. I'm more than capable of doing the job. What I need is to find somewhere off road to do the work. I have a spare 13pin connector so I will probably find someone local to at least swap that out. I would at least then know it's the conductor plate.

    Starter Issue on SLK200

    There is a Relay Control Module located next the battery, I know this can cause issues with cranking and starting on the SLK R170 320. Not sure if it is the same for 200 and 230.

    New (ish) wheels for the SLK

    Yes they are 16's 8j on the rear with 7.5j on the front. No noticeable ride difference other than the power steering feels a shade heavier which is not a bad thing. Nr Canterbury so your welcome to test at some point.

    What Have You Done To Your Merc Today?

    I cleaned my MAF :) and reset the ECU. pleasantly surprised..... Now have an intermittent low coolant warning light, but coolant is fine. and connections all look good. I did use the wipers and screen wash to clear some bird poop off the windscreen, perhaps there is a link between this.:(

    I looked at two MX5's and a Mr2 (not sure what made me to do that). Then two other SLK's one silver which I guess was the 103k car which I made an offer on and the seller agreed only to back out the next day, and a blue one but that one just didn't feel right. The Slk won out because in some...
