SLK 230 (R170) owner for almost 2 years. Love the ride, made a couple of cosmetic improvements to make ride look newer, snazzy. i joined to get some help with a problem that just cropped up. My Vario Roof will not retract. The trunk opens as it should, then nothing happens. The red light on the console switch flashes fast, so something is not right. Any ideas on trrouble shooting or approx cost to repair? Heck even my side windows are now stop down. Is this a relay problem or hydraulics? Hmm. Help!!!

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!


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.
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.

It's best to keep help questions separate from your intro.
Not everyone reads the intos.

Search for the roof troubleshooting tree. It's pretty good.
You problems have been seen before.

There's a handy R170 diy link in my signature below.

Your regional threads can be found here:
U.S. Southeast Region - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Good luck fixing your roof.
