    SLK 350 - Whining noise from front of engine

    There is someone on SLK World who appears to have the same whining noise that I have. His car is 05, mine 55, his car has done 55K, mine 57K. To much of a coincidence? Now he took his to an indy and they think it is the pump. My noise seems to be also coming from the pump but difficult to be...

    SLK 350 - steering response

    Checked the PAS fluid level and it is at minimum for 20 c, so looks to be no problem there. The belt I can deflect around 1/2 inch on the longest free part between alternator a upper pulley, so cannot see a problem there. The whining noise appears to be from the PAS pump below the reservoir. Any...

    SLK 350 - engine noise

    I did not notice the noise I have now when test driving the car I recently purchased but having driven it for only a few miles there is something not right. To make matters worse the car had a full service less than 1K miles ago. With the bonnet open there is a high pitched noise coming from the...

    SLK 350 - steering response

    I've read the steering response on an SLK is not the best in the class, however having just driven my newly purchased one want to be reassured it does not have a fault. There is no play that I am aware of (I see this was an issue in a previous post) and turn in is quite good but could be a...

    7G Tronic - manual gear shifting

    Had a test drive in a SLK which had the paddle shift. When using the paddles on upshifting I could see the gear display going up 1,2,3 etc but on getting to 6 the next paddle operation displayed D. I was also watching the rev counter and in addition feeling the slight surge when shifting...

    Designo paint finish

    How expensive do you think a repair to a small dent in a designo silver paint finish would be compared with a standard paint? For example is the designo paint itself so much more expensive.

Looking at around year 2005 and there are not that many 350's and most appear to have been on the market a long time. I missed one with right spec/price, so there is a market. Do you expect the market to pick up...

    Parameter v Direct steering

    Thanks Phil, I must have been looking at an old spec on the MB website (says 2004/10) as the info from your link is different. So I understand that face lift models started spring 2008 but the direct steer was not available until 2009
