Its a "Repair Manual", about 160MB in size.

You shouldn't need a download manager to download the file, just click on the link and then just wait 10 seconds until the link titled "continue to down load page" appears and then click on that and then click the link "click here to download your file".

Just to be clear I bought the manual off ebay (arrived on a cd), then zipped it up and stuck it on the interweb

It's an owners manual, and extract of the MB R170 Service CD, both of which are clearly copyright MB.

Firstly the SLK user manual has been a sticky on this site for ages. Secondly the repair guide has no copyright notices on any of the PDF's that I've looked at.

So if you've got nothing useful to say or able provide to help users with a cost effective means of looking after their SLK's...then better to say nothing at all....

Mincemonkey, the owners and service history manuals have been placed in the public domain by Mercedes Benz and are freely available. The service repair manuals are copyright Mercedes Benz and as such, your buying counterfeit copies from ebay is similar to receiving stolen goods.

When you signed up to join our forum, you agreed to our terms and conditions. You have broken these rules already, and what's more, after having been here only 'five minutes', you have started insulting one of our moderators and possibly the most helpful member here.

To this end, I am going to give you a 5 day ban, to reflect upon the error of your ways.

Thanks guys - timezone's are killing me, so maybe I was a bit terse. Posting links to Mercedes for information published in the public domain is perfectly fine. Posting copies is - in most of the world - illegal - see page 269 of the Owners Manual you posted as an example.

The R170 Service CD and it's contents are copyright MB, and someone has gone to a bit of trouble to strip off the copy protection and post it up as individual PDF's. If you like, I can post current screenshots of the copyright notices.

At the end of the day, we all are here to foster our love for all things SLK! I apologize if I jumped conclusions, and assUmed that you were aware of these restrictions.

do any of you longer term guys (Jbanks15, Woolly etc.) remember a website that was for the SLK (seems like it was german owned and had broken english descriptions) but walked you through a lot of the disassembly of the SLK with pictures? It even had it divided into sections like instrument cluster, dash, console, etc. for the whole car?

Specifically I wanted some hands on, photos of removing the top dash (horizontal black part). thanks,

Repair Manual

I know this is an old thread. I've always wanted to have a repair manual for the slk 32 amg. I discovered that the Chrysler Crossfire offers a factory repair manual (hard copy) and a lot of ebay bookstores sell it. It is basically the same for most part of the car. I just ordered a hard copy for $ 99.00.

At least you are not participating in piracy.
