Hi,
I picked up my 99 SLK 230 in July with just under 50k miles on the clock.
The car is in pretty good condition, however I have already had to replace the MAF which failed soon after I bought the car. Now I am experiencing stalling issues which the diagnostic codes are saying is due to the K40 relay.

I am pretty handy when it comes to mechanical things so I would like to do most of the work on the car myself. Where is the best place to get new parts for these cars? For something like the K40 relay do I have to order it from Mercedes or are there other aftermarket retailers in the UK that I can order from?

I am very impressed with the amount of help and information that is being shared in the forums and look forward to being part of the SLK world!

Aaron

Welcome from Eugene, Oregon!
The problem with the K40 board is mostly failed solder connections and you should be able to fix it yourself.
Good luck!
