Six months ago I bought a burgundy 2009 SLK 350 from the dealer with 14,971 miles on it. I am delighted with it because it is essentially a brand new car without a scratch, blemish, door ding, or nick in the paint anywhere at a third of the price of a new one. I like to do minor maintenance and repairs myself but finding a repair manual on the car is tough. Can anyone recommend a good manual?

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.

Welcome from Wirral, England.

The better half has the same year/car in silver.

Nice motors.

A lot of what you'll be after is on this site, with some very good explanations, hints for tricky bits
and photos.

There's a R171 diy link in my signature.
