Hello every one. Just want to introduce myself and my car because I have been using the forum for months. This is my third SLK, a 2004 SLK350 with 41k miles from Texas that I bought last year. The first two were bought new in 2002 and 2006. I just keep falling in love when ever I see them on the road which is rare in Eugene, Oregon. When VW bought back my turbo diesel beetle last spring, I turned around and bought my old school- SLK 350.
Thanks for all the helpful repair columns that I have used including changing the rearview mirror, resetting the alarm system and fixing a droopy headliner. So lucky to have this forum. Thanks everyone.

A question to all:I have an ash tray that won't stay in and I bought a replacement on eBay some months ago. Does anyone know how to take out of the dashboard panel that it is attached to?

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.

Is your ashtray issue on your r170s or on your r171 350?
We need to know that stuff :D

here is r171

From a search of our site

https://www.google.com/search?source=hp&ei=u6mlWrLeFpC9zgKgkbvICw&q=site:slkworld.com+r171+replace+ashtray&oq=site:slkworld.com+r171+replace+ashtray&gs_l=psy-ab.3...1159.8922.0.9273.38.38.0.0.0.0.242.3447.25j7j3.35.0....0...1.1.64.psy-ab..3.5.524...0j46j0i131k1j0i46k1j0i131i46k1j46i131k1.0.bnBaU1JiXdE

I edited 2003 in your post to 2004

Welcome from Indiana! I totally agree with you, life would be a lot more difficult as an SLK owner without this site and the people who manage it.

Welcome from Portland, Oregon. Check out the SLK NW Group located under the clubs section of the forum. They are located out of the Seattle area but have drives that will bring the group our way at times. In fact I think we will be passing through Eugen this year on our way to Crater Lake. Enjoy the forum and the top down driving.
