SLK Knowledgable Garage in the South West

Hi all,
As the subject says, is there anyone/garage that knows SLK's well?

I have an issue with the roof and want to look at options, but have someone "SLK + mechanical minded + brave" to do it!

Any thoughts ....

Cheers
James

I can recommend Robin Lamb in Gloucester.
He and his crew are all ex Chelt and Glos Mercedes main dealer employees.
I use him for everything and he is a lot cheaper than the dealers.

It’s normally Robin himself that answers the phone but any of the guys will be able to help.
Just give them a call.

so i dropped in to see him today and explained the issue, he said he hasn't seen a roof like mine before and would have to research on what to do! Did say the gaps were massive, and that he hadn't heard of de-lamination....

Garage
To be fair, we have reached the cross over point of 172 going back to dealers with the DL issue.
So not many Indy's will have come across it yet.

But as ex MB employees, they will be able to look up the tech service bulletins.
Should be a tsb on it.

Ah, I didn’t realise you had a roof delamination issue.
All of the cases so far will have been back to main dealers as the only real fix is to replace the roof with glass ones.
I think your only option is to go to the dealer.
