Sapphire Blue Metallic 2002 R170 UK Owner

Hi,

I just replaced my blinker unit in the nearside door mirror housing and am pleased to report that it is working well.

However, the rear stoplight strip on the boot has three lights not working in the centre.

I have read this this is a dealership job and not to attempt a fix myself

Can anyone advise me on this please?https://www.slkworld.com/images/SLKWo...face_plain.png

Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us!

I can't help you with the question about your rear stoplight strip, but I would have thought that would be possible to do yourself... I'm sure some other R170 members will be along shortly to offer their advice!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
• Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
FREE!! How to get a free data card!
• If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
• If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
• Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If iPhone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as iPhone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
• Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
• New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
• Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Thank you
Dave
