Hi All
Just got a 2005 SLK 200k, Black with red leather. Only 36k miles with MBSH!
Just got it back and display saying both reg plate lights not working, even though they are! Checked the forums and seems a common problem so will look at it tomorrow in daylight. Looks to be a great forum - The SLk replaces a much troublesome X5 4.4V8 with a great forum for it so great to see this one too!

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.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Hello and welcome from sunny France.. unseasonable hot..but not really complaining as it is great for top-down. :smile::smile::smile:

If you have just got your car and it is showing faults.. why not go back to the supplier and ask them to check it out.... just a thought...:wink:

Thanks for the welcome!

Thanks for the welcome- I did check for LED's due to this great forum but they are originals-The warning has gone now! it may have tripped as I was changing the licence plate!

Welcome from Basingstoke (& Burnham at Weekends) :tu:
Good luck in fixing the lights - Have they been replaced with LED Bulbs?

Trev'

Burnham, Eh! That's close! No LEDS! This car has obviously been owned by someone who never mods and gets serviced by MB- I am tempted to keep the MB service history but then again I haven't won the lottery yet!

Welcome swifty, I am just down the road from you (J11, M4). I recently got a 2005 200 with similar milage and love it. Had to fit new gas struts on the boot lid which has caused it to rattle and squeak. Sounds like a shopping trolley in an old land rover. Got some info on here for causes so will check it out at the weekend.

Hi Mortimermerc- My boot is really stiff to open-I guess it is pushing against some hydraulics? Not sure if this is just how they are meant to be! Good to know another Berks SLK member!
