Hi, I've just joined the forum having recently purchased my first SLK.
She's a 1997 230K in Brilliant Silver.
Done just 79000 miles and still so smooth.
What an excellent forum, thanks to you all for the amazing contributions.
I have a slight problem with my boot/trunk lid which I can't find an answer to.
The roof functions perfectly but after driving for a while I can see in my wing mirror that the front edge of the lid has lifted about 1/4 inch. If I stop and press the roof closure button the pump starts and lowers the lid and the limit switch then cuts power to the pump as it should.
Any ideas ?

Thanks again for sharing your expertise.

Bill

Welcome from Madrid...


Could be that the lock on that side is faulty or needs slight adjustment, that the latch is entering in it's place and activating the micro switch for the roof function, but not locking in place..
