Good day all. My real name is Dan but I acquired the nickname MacGyver over 10 years ago when I welded a shifter back on my son's Harley at 1am on the side of the road with jumper cables and a penny. I have a newly purchased 2005 350 SLK and am anxious to get and give any help to keep it in top shape. I'm a decent wrench and have owned two SEL's in the past. I hope I can be as helpful to you all here as I know you will be to me.:smile:

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 MacGyver

I'm a decent wrench

Welcome MacGyver from Avondale, AZ. I too am a decent wrench (Aircraft Mechanic 4 American Airlines) and a Do it Yourselfer. I try to post videos on my 2005 SLK 350 fixes, to assist others. I'm rather new myself, joining quite recently. Look forward to your posts :smile:

Welcome from central Florida. Great story on how you earned your nickname. I'm sure you'll do well here and your SLK will benefit.
