In my search for a manual for my R170 I came across a seller on Google offering electronic manuals on line. I bought a manual for my car but after the download I found that I could not use them despite having the correct readers on my PC.
When I tried to contact the seller direct I had the message that their account was in dispute with paypal and it was not possible to contact. I tried to contact the seller through Pay pal and got the same message. I immediately made a complaint to paypal.
After my complaint the seller made contact in a series of abusive and rude e mails. The dispute is on going, thankfuly it was not a lot of money but the principal is morally wrong.
If you are tempted to use this site, and from my experience dont touch them.

If it's an owner's manual you're looking for, you can probably download one from Mercedes Benz.

Bryn, I'm afraid that this 'scam' has been going on for many a year now

https://www.steelrat.net/index.php/emanualsonline-scam/

If there's anything you need to know about your R170, this forum is very hard to beat.
As a starting point try here

SLK-Class!

and if you don't find your answer, then as they say, search is your friend.

Failing that, post up your query. These cars have been around a long time and I bet that there's a member here who can help you out.

Thank you for responding but I was after a more technical manual, in particular one with wiring diagrams, I have an owners manual which is useful for fuses etc but not so handy for wiring.

The sun was out, the roof was down and the car was fantastic, I have owned many cars over the years, but none come close to the character this SLK has
