I just got a 98 SLK230K that has been sitting dormant for a couple years. Biggest issue right now are P0500 (and dead speedo), P1747, and several lights:
brake pads
ABS
Brake
ASR

I need to get service manuals - where would you suggest?
I'm likely to buy a Foxwell NT-530 with the round 38 pin adaptor.

I love this car and can't wait to get it on the road!

There are no service manuals
all manuals are copyrighted by MB
any you find are pirated or they will take your money and give you nothing

Welcome to the Forum, you will find so much stuff here on how the fix all the little gremlins from the R170 Chassis. I too have a 230k a 99 and have been fighting the same things as you slowly replacing sensors and updating maintenance that has probably been overlooked. They are great cars, hard to keep that smile off face when we are behind the wheel. Oh, and hello from down the road in Fayetteville NC.
