We don't deal with car issues in welcome threads.

However, here's two links to get you started (if you have more questions, please start a thread in the 171 General section):

If replacing then ensure you specify RIGHT hand drive.
Left will not fit, nor is it easily adaptable.

Done this job myself. Make sure to stretch before hand.
Job is easy, positions that the body has to get into is not (upside down in seat!!).

Further diys:

As it is new to you it's worth checking through the list:

Also clean and treat roof seals and clean drain holes.

If having heater issues, check drain holes under windscreen shield (especially passenger side) and the battery tray (it can fill with water if drain blocks).

See the 3 cars at the top?
Yellow is R170
Black is R171 (like myself and Jeff & I suspect yours from year)
White is R172 (SLK and later became SLC).

Hope that helps.
