Please help me i am going crazy
Hello good slkers, I am a member from dubai.
I had a 1998 slk230 which was running good except that I had broken dasboard and that was so annoying.
I couldnt get it anywhere in dubai to replace so I so a whole perfect working car to scrap buyers for $800
I went to someone who brought a 2000 slk from japan a bought.
on the first day car was started good and all was ok except for the roof that was not operating. there were leaks on the top roof. I took to a garage who happened to have clean accidented 2001 slk230 lying there.
on openning he discovered that all 5 cylinders were leaking.
he replaced the one in the roof then the trunk leaked. so we replaced all 5 cylinders on the car.
now his employee make a big hole on my hydraulic pump just to top so I was mad why he had to open a whole on the plastic part of the pump so this made me to buy his pump on that scrap car. that made everything on my car fresh.
I notice that when the roof button is pressed, the rear windows does not go down but the two driver and passengers windows start going down and stop. I will leave the switch and press again they will start again and stop. I have to do that about 4 times to get them fully down then the roof will open but without the rear windows going down.
yesterday I noticed some awful sound in the hydraulic pump so I went to him, he removed the pump complete and replaced a new pump, filled the oil completlely full even above the max marking. now I have a full hydraulic in the pump.
when I press the roof button, the windows does the same thing start and stop If i continue when windows are fully down trunk will not lift and I hear hydraulic pump running. If i press the switch to close the roof the windows will come up normal in full speed. I noticed the first day the roof open the trunk did the same thing the windows are doing. I have press it will start opening and stop. I leave switch and press again until full open then the roof would open normal but now the trunk wont lift at all. seems the trunk locks where we pull back for manual operation is not releasing the trunk. I tried to pull manual to release but it seem stiff what can I do I got angry and took my car from him
That is how i was made to change a new gear box after the painter painted all the speed sensors and I got all lights on dashboard until later someone claimed he changed gear computer without showing me the old one.
please help me what can I do?
first the rear windows why are they not going in at all when i open roof?
why are the windows starting and stopping?
why is the trunk not releasing
the trunk also start and stop if i manually release it
I have spent an amount that can buy 3 cars because of wrong diagnosis.
also I notice a click on all cylinders when the roof button is just pressed even the inside top roof cylinder. I noticed the guy fixed some of the hydraulic lines on the cylinder on wrong places so relocated them based on the numbers i saw on the plate and on the cables. please someone help me
One last thing
the vent openings in the car: air is coming in direct based on outside temperature. I am speeding and outside is hot, hot air comes direct inside. the same when its cold.
but if ac is on then ac works normal.
