recent topic. Have you tried a 'search' top right?

Here are some links in Leapyfish's sig block that are helpful:

Thanks Jeff... I had found that one and it is very useful - I have it bookmarked

Over here we have Haynes manuals which show you the car and how to strip it down and put it back together. They dont do a manual for the Silk strangely

I have manuals for my Yamaha

You can get the service manual on CD from Mercedes, about $120 last I heard.

Service manual

It's probably more of an MB copyright issue that keeps Haynes from producing one.

I don't $120 sounds like a bargain either- I will keep looking on EBay and other sources I think

I just received a service manual on cd that I bought on E bay. its pretty much a dealer service manual/program. very complicated and I have yet to get any useful information out of it. would really like to find a nice simple manual like Haynes.

I got one off Ebay for $30. Really useful. It has all models up to 2013. Don't know what's the difference between one for $120 though =) But it was well worth the money!

I downloaded the Crossfire manual that's in Leapyfish's sig. To me it's very user friendly and most procedures are step by step removal and assembly.

+1 on this - I use the SRT-6 manual (equivalent to SLK32) in conjunction with a set of R170 service pdfs I found (bought for $10) on the net.

Hi, Let me know what you think of the Workshop Manual. I'm looking at the same on Ebay but would value your opinion before buying. Its not that I mind the wasted 10, but I could do without the wasted time and PC disk space.....!
