Hi all. Name is Filipo Su'a, Samoan Pacific Islander living and enjoying the Finest City great weather in San Diego California. I just bought a Black 1998 SLK 230 with oyster black interior' 122,400mls for my 18 year old daughter. She just graduated from high school and was working part time saving her money for her first car. She loves the car(Sporty looks & it's a Mercedes) even though there are several cosmetic flaws like the paint peeling off the interior, the top not working in auto, small windows are jammed in down position. Brake lights did not work - which I did not check when purchasing - but did not work when we got home. The recall on lights were done in 2005 when I called MBZ. I have since repaired the lights with my own quick easy fix. I am looking at slowly fixing up the car(as my daughter gets money) so it will be so much better for her. I am going to tackle the small windows' issue first for safety, and then the interior before tackling the top. I will greatly appreiciate all the help/information you proud owners can give. I am very handy and pretty much DIY first(money issues). I need a repair manual for the car. I had it smogged for change of ownership but the P1519 code shows. Some blogs talked about checking the K40 relay but I have not idea where that is located(no schematics). Thanks for all your help. I am learning about this car every day. It looks cool. ;)
