Dear friends,

It is great that this website exists. My name is Dan and I was born in Holland, although I've been traveling around Europe for my work (with my SLK) and before, I always was a lease customer of Mercedes Benz. I decided to buy my current one (MB SLK250, 2011) after the leasing period, because I believe that this SLK will bring me joy and pleasure in the future as well. It is amazing to read your enthusiasm on this forum about that beautiful car as well!

Unfortunately, two days after buying my SLK, the front dashboard speaker broke down and I would like to replace it myself instead of paying a lot of money to the local dealer in Croatia, where I am now. That is how I find this great forum and I created a topic, hoping that someone can tell me how to remove the broken speaker from the dashboard and replace it without breaking it all, haha.

I will keep reading your posts and contribute where possible. Thanks for building this great community and I wish you all the best,

Dan

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, 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.
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.

Thanks Jeff, I will take a look at the smarttop! It's a R172, I will add it to my profile. Any other mods that you would suggest? Right now I am really sad about the bad service here in Croatia regarding replacing my speaker. I hope someone on the forum will be able to help me in my other topic:) Have a great day! Dan
