Hello, My mother picked up a 2007 SLK280 at the weekend and everything was fine until we put the roof back on and the drivers side rear quarter window didn't close all the way, you can pull it closed a bit more but obviously that's not ideal!

Anyone know of this being a common fault and/or how to fix it?

Thanks

Lots of Mercedes!
Its likely the battery has been off and it hasnt been set up properly.

- Close roof, windows etc.
- disconnect battery for 5 mins
- reconnect
- sit in car with doors closed
- with ignition on, take the windows up and down 3 times each. hold at each end for a second or so.
- run car and go lock to lock with steering 3 times.
