Hi, I'm a new SLK 200 171 owner and require a service manual for it. I have already been ripped off by an online company that you are meant to download, but it does not open. This I think is the OM part number that is no longer available P-2700-171-07.
Any suggestions?

there are no 'how to service' like chiltons or hayes etc

all of that is online through MB like WIS etc and you get to pay for access for those
MB is copyrighted so you won't find those unless pirated


if you mean the service book with when to do service, see my link above

There exists a service manual on CD. This doesn't cover oil changes and that kind of stuff, but repair and replacement of parts. It also has full electrical diagrams.
The CD unfortunately comes with a 16-bit viewer software that is no longer compatible with modern versions of Windows. I last had it running on Windows XP. Not sure if that is the article you are looking for or not.

I haven’t heard of anybody making the service manual work on anything newer than Windows XP. I have an XP virtual machine I’ve been dragging along for a decade for this purpose. If you have a hyper-V-capable Windows edition, or kvm-capable Linux, and can find Windows XP install CD, and can find the STAR Service Manual, it will still work.
