hello

Hi Guys/Gals just saying hello..my name is raymond, i drive an oldie but goodie.. its an E class 320 cdi.. high mileage, but well serviced and documented.Ł12 grand was spent on it by the previous owner who was a private hire company..i have owned it for 3 years, and also serviced it by mercedes, but major parts by F1 Autocentres who do an excellent job. Always passes its MOT, drives good, and have recently come back from my other home in Bulgaria, where she handled and drove like a dream..except for the journey back where there was some vibrations coming from the car, a bit like a wheel out of balance, but no vibrations through the steering wheel, so its another issue..the gear box when changing gear, acts like a manual car with a slipping clutch as it changes from one gear to the next..maybe a gearbox service can cure that. unless there are other suggestions as to its cause.

whilst on the subject..am going to change the horn on my car to an air horn with compressor..no problem there but..just want to know which is live and which is earth on the wires to my old horn, just under the bonnet on the L H side, as these wires will go to my new connections..thanks.

We are a 100% SLK r170/r171 and r172 forum only but you are welcome to join us

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

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 or to ‘edit’, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome new members as we welcomed you to obtain your needed posts to PM/edit. You can always pm a moderator/administrator.
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 post you like. This saves you having to comment or use the 'quote' button so we know who you are asking or replying to or referencing.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar 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.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.
