Remove the black plate surrounding the roll over covers like mentioned in the smartop installation procedure. From there on it should be easy sailing.

Judgeming, I have the roll bar deck off (easy enough once I spotted the little screw in the middle!) but now I can't see how the covers come off - are they clipped or screwed on?

The roll-bar covers are just clipped to each other. Remove the draft stop first (if you have it) and use a body work plastic tool to pry them apart. No bolts holding them together.

Yes, I've got it now.

Thanks.

it's pretty scary how little holds that whole area together. It literally all just clips into place. One screw.

Amazing!

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

First please update your location and vehicle (year?: 1996-2016, model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.

Your 1st thread should be your introduction so we can welcome you properly so post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. New Members Introduce Yourself Here - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum


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

Remove the central rear speaker. Pry loose from the top sides (lifting) with a plastic prying tool. Beneath it you will find the single screw. Be aware that the plug to the speaker and (if you have it) parktronic display easily break.

The silver ones are not painted, they are actually metal shells.

You can paint them (I have mine painted Fire Opal Red) but the paint shop has to use filler/primer on them to smooth the surface for painting. And then you have to be INCREDIBLY careful when you refit them as, if they flex, the paint can flake off. If I was doing them again, I might look at hydrographic printing the red colour onto them. It wouldn't save much money-wise, but the dip coating is much more flex resistant and you can remove it much more easily.

I have done it by myself ;)
it's really just a screw, it's "under" the rear speaker grid ... pull it up and you will be able to remove the rear plastic cover.
Also rollbar cover are fixed just with clip ... be careful but there's no screw, just clips.

Probably this evening I will have my painted cover, if so I will come back here to show you the result.
