    Inner tubes!

    Leaking alloy: I have a set of very expensive SL65 AMG split rim alloys. One of them has had a repair done at some stage.

    SLK blocked drain tubes

    Hi. I've searched for an answer to this and can't find anything. Apologies if I've missed it, but... I've seen references both here and on other forums to keeping the various drain tubes clear on SLKs - especially the ones on the boot lips so that water doesn't get into the boot and ruin...

    A/C Musty Smells, Air filters & Drain Tubes

    I have the classic musty smell for about 5-10 mins after the A/C is switched off. I have replaced the pollen filter (in the passenger well) and have tried two different aerosoles ( a Comma product and one from Euro car parts), both have helped but not eliminated the problem. I have two questions...
