I have a 98 SLK230 Kompressor earlier model and differnt engine from yours, but
I have purchased two different OBD devices from ebay and downloaded the MB codes from this site and other sites of the internet I could PM them to you.
The devices i purchased were first a gereric OBD code reader only to find i did not have the correct plug for my model Round 18 pin located inder bonnet near battery, but i did buy an adaptor cable to make it fit, works well but limmited useability. At same time i purchased a different device specifically with software to read the MB vehicles needed an older computor (laptop) with windows 98 to install the software which i luckily had allready. Some minor issues with learning how to understand the program and use it but gives a printout of the codes saves the file etc. Very good to use but i have only performed basic functions with it.
Look under left side/ centre of steering colum for a small cover of rectangulat shaped receptical to determin what type of plug you need (later versions than mine will all have a standard plug/receptical) whether it be; MB Nisan, Holden/Chevy, Ford, BMW, etc. If you are interested i can look up the names of the devices i purchased and advise you!
