Is there a downloadable R170 manual on here? I have the glovebox manual but could do with the more technical one.... so I can tell my mechanic what I want..... as all my spanners are left handed .... and I am not :D

Thanks Jeff... I had found that one and it is very useful - I have it bookmarked

Over here we have Haynes manuals which show you the car and how to strip it down and put it back together. They dont do a manual for the Silk strangely

I have manuals for my Yamaha

You can get the service manual on CD from Mercedes, about $120 last I heard.

I don't $120 sounds like a bargain either- I will keep looking on EBay and other sources I think

I just received a service manual on cd that I bought on E bay. its pretty much a dealer service manual/program. very complicated and I have yet to get any useful information out of it. would really like to find a nice simple manual like Haynes.

I got one off Ebay for $30. Really useful. It has all models up to 2013. Don't know what's the difference between one for $120 though =) But it was well worth the money!

I downloaded the Crossfire manual that's in Leapyfish's sig. To me it's very user friendly and most procedures are step by step removal and assembly.

+1 on this - I use the SRT-6 manual (equivalent to SLK32) in conjunction with a set of R170 service pdfs I found (bought for $10) on the net.

I brought the £10 cd version off EBay - still to upload it on to my PC
Hi, Let me know what you think of the Workshop Manual. I'm looking at the same on Ebay but would value your opinion before buying. Its not that I mind the wasted £10, but I could do without the wasted time and PC disk space.....!
