    R170 slk

    Hello all ,my father has an R170 SLK and he is going to replace the cam shaft magnet at the front of the engine. From reviewing on the web it seems that when this is done the starter line (blocker) from it should also be changed to prevent oil going up into the ECU. I have called my local MB...

    SLK230K R170 Vivanite

    Looks OK - Vivanite is a bit of a Marmite colour, I personally quite like it. The SLK looks in pretty reasonable nick and only 1 owner. I'd be surprised if there isn't some tin worm in the equation, but it seems like a lot of car for the money! 2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK230 Kompressor - One...

    R170 SLK 230 start problem - start error 493

    Hi everyone, I've taken the plunge and bought a 2000 SLK 230. It had a gear box problem, so I bought a replacement box and had it fitted. The car run really well for a day and now seems stuck in reverse. As such it won't start, I assume because the car thinks it's in gear. The display show a...

    R170 230k

    Hi all, Can anyone recommend a performance air filter that can fit onto a 2000 (X) 230K? I am thinking more of a cone type, nice looking one rather than a replacement flat element type. Thanks guys, Smokey Fontaine.
