I'm a new member with a 2005 SLK200 in Dorset UK.
I've had the car since May and really enjoyed the summer, but alas a little water is finding its way in now. The front windows are not sealing properly with the rears so I believe a little adjustment is required from reading many posts, possibly new seals.
I have already been able to fix my A/C thanks to the great info shared on this site.

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.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Hi and a warm welcome to the forum from Wiltshire.



As @Avel Du says:

It is! But I'm kinda whizzing around on the Wiltshire/Hants/Dorset borders too! Look out for me in the car in my pic below!
