Welcome to SLKWorld.com from Northern
California

:burnout::Beer:

Please update your location and vehicle (Put Looking!)(year?: 1996-2017,
model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55) in your profile as it helps the members
answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about
30 seconds to do.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side,
‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does
not update your profile.

You will never need to ask about part numbers again.



Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
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 enough
new members to obtain your needed posts to PM/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
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.
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.

Welcome from Wirral, England.


========================================================





First please update your location and vehicle
(Put Looking!)(year?: 1996-2017, model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55)
in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
This takes about 30 seconds to do.


Follow exactly to update:
‘Usercp’ at the top of page,
then ‘edit your details’ on the left side,
‘additional information’ near the bottom,
edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’.
Info in your garage does not update your profile.


The reason that we ask you to update vehicle/location details
is to save repeating the same information every time that you ask a question.

Also, this site is truly worldwide. That can matter when you ask for help and information.

Are you looking for a bonnet, or a hood, a boot, or a trunk? Makes a difference.

Driving on the left, or the right?








========================================================

Welcome from Northamptonshire @Rathborne11 , George.

Check out the UK Members Location Map - We have several members in Ireland, and I'm sure they are mentioned on the this map (despite it being called the UK MLM!)

There is also a meet planned for ireland this year, so check out the UK Meet Calendar too.

Remember: 'Search is your friend'.

Hi George, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us and posting an intro! :)

First please update your profile with your location (e.g. "Ireland") and vehicle year and model (e.g. "1997 R170 SLK230"), if you haven’t already done so, as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
Follow this to update: ‘User CP’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’ (and then click ‘SAVE CHANGES’ button at the bottom of the page). Info in your garage does not update your profile.


Thank you
Dave

check the temp probe
is it still in its holder in the grill?
maybe they sprayed over it hence no temp reading from outside
