MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Roof Stuck Open Has My Piecha Module Failed

Ive spent the last few hours reading the numerous threads on r171 roof issues as well as aftermarket control modules and no one else seems to have experienced quite the same issue as I am now. Back in 2006 I was among the first group of r171 owners in the U.S. to install a Piecha Comfort roof Module thanks to the gracious assistance of several other European SLK owners on this forum. Ive had no trouble

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Mercedes SLK Vario-Roof is quietest-running of entire segment

From another website The standard-specification vario-roof makes the SLK sports car from Mercedes-Benz the quietest-running model in its class. This has been proven by testing carried out in Stuttgart Universitys aeroacoustics wind tunnel using a revolutionary new concave mirror measurement technique. The vario-roofs ability to absorb wind noise more effectively than a soft-top roof means that when

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Roof seal lubrication

Hello guys Im getting a bit of squeeking and creaking around the boot and windscreen area. Does anyone know of a good product to lubricate oil grease the rubber seals with Will just a standard pot of Vaseline from the supermarket be suitable What about silocon rubber lubricant spray Many thanks

I was just talking to the service tech about this. He advised me not to lubricate the seals too much cause this seems to cause alot of creaking that other SLK drivers experience. He advises to clean off dirt and dust from every rubber surface that I see on the SLK. The squicking seems to be like when you have two glass panes with dirt in between rubbing together it makes that sound and can damage the

I find most of the creakingrattlling noises i get actually come from the plastic boot separator that you pull down when you want to operate the roof. I think this is just the material it is made that cuases these noises a fairly cheap piece of plastic

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Roof water leaks and squeaks

Is this a common problem With the roof up most noticeable at slow speed I have a mixture of squeaks and creaking noises from the rear. I have also got water running down the inside of my side windows in alignment to the front roof seal and water collect very nicely on the plastic ledge before it drips onto the seatbelt strap Garage has had 2 attempts so far

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Vario-roof noise SOLVED

just got back from my local official stealer cos i ve had some strange noises coming from the roof and two weeks ago that noise got worse. and guess what it was fixed in just about 5 mins it just needed some grease and that s all now it s smooth as silk. i would also like to send my kind regards to gatecrash. he was one of the first who suggested oiling the roof in our forum.

Hi I am sorry - I cant find the other thread when you mentioned the oil - but where can you get it and what is it called. Can we apply ourselves or does it need to be applied places where we cant get to it Thanks Most of my noises have gone - but get occassional creeks..

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 SLK Roof

Is it normal to hear occasional roof rattles going over bumps etc.. First day I had the car returned it to have a rattle fixed on drivers side now hearing one on passenger side mostly going over bumps. 2006 SLK280

Quote RonJeffries - 1162005 1200 AM Mine is the most rattle-free car I can remember ever having. Same here. I have heard no suspect noise so far. My other convertible was a soft-top and although it was a smooth running car I could sometimes hear creaks coming from the roof doors and frame. Car critics say the SLK is a relatively quiet roadster but some roof noises can become more noticeable in cold

1182 miles to date. No rattles or other undesired noises. COMMAND NAV Sat radio iPOD all work flawlessly and beyond expectations. Burned 0.5 Quarts of oil during break-in millenium. Averaging 17.1 mpg. My only problem so far was the illuminated door sills that didnt work initially. Took 15 minutes for the dealer to swap out new door sills and they are sharp

No rattles squeaks or any untoward noises here. I frequently hit potholes that make the springs bottom and rattle my jaw but the car doesnt protest at all.

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Finally fixed my roof rattle

Hey all After 2 years of quiet operation i have started to experience as many members have the dreaded roof rattle between 15-20 mph over bumpy and not so bumpy roads. I tried b55s trunk rattle solution and the piece of felt solution and even had the dealer do the roof rattle without the felt solution (which btw is a tsb). No luck. Finally today i pressed on the right side of my trunk (the quiet side)

Thanks for the info. My roof makes slight rattle noises at low speeds on bumpy roads and was going to mention it at the first service. I will try your fixes

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Problem with roof on new car

Yesterday I drove my brand-new SLK280 over 250 Miles from the dealer to my home in El Paso without any problems (roof repeatedly opened and closed during stops). It was a real treat due to first class handling and a beautiful engineexaust sound Even on uneven pavement there were no clacking clicking or any other unexpected noises neither with the top up nor down. In the cooler evening hours I took

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Noisy Roof Seals

Has anyone had their roof seals cleaned and lubricated pursuant to Technical Service Bulletin (TSB)P-77-30-30A How willing was the dealer to perform the procedure described in the TSB and did it fix the problem Sounds like my car (05 SLK55) is afflicted with the problem as described. My roof creaks on bumpy roads (I assume its the seals and not the roof itself) most noticeably when the outside temperature is below 40 degrees. The colder the temperature the louder the creaking seems to be.

Dealer performed the task on the second visit for noisy roof and didnt take much persuading. I have to say it did eliminate the noises (squeaks creaks etc.). Also be aware that the back deck behind the roll bars can tend to rattle if it is not seated and adjusted properly.

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Creaking roof partially solved

This is something I noticed yesterday in relation to my creaking roof. It may not apply to anyone else but I thought if I posted it it might help someone. I keep the mesh wind breaker on all the time even with the hood up cos its a real nuisance to take on and off all the time. My passenger seat was pushed back as far as it went which meant that the top of the headrest was pushing against the wind

Thanks Angela (I live in a dry country and I got de same problems with de roof noises normally in bumpy roads)

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Vario roof noise..

Hi to you all. I have already got about 2000 km on my new slk and a small but annoying problem has appeared. The vario roof when closed makes an annoying noise when the road has few bumps in it. When the roof is open then the noise disappears. Has anybody noticed the same problem. Is it normal If not can it be fixed because my dealership advised me not to touch the vario roof.

Hi The only wierd rattling noise I can hear is the movement on the button which holds the seat belts in place...annoying but cant be helped...apart from that I havent heard any noises.

hey greekslk i ve got 4500 km on the clock already and so far so good. did your dealer say to change engine oil after the run-in periodi m gonna do it after 7500km i have a dealer who is really into this stuff. he s so clever.some friends also who are mechanics advice me to do it as well. ok your prob now i hear some creaking noises from my roof too when i switch off the radio i there is complete silence

Im still wondering if I should get an SL or an SLK [D] so I have no owner experience with the MB folding hardtop [(] Ă‚however I do have a fair bit of experience dealing with noises from the rubber seals for doors and sunroofs. If you think the noise is coming from a seal try applying some automotive grade silicone rubber conditioner on it. For the SLK I would suggest you spray the silicone on a good

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Alldata Mercedes Technical Service Bulletins Recalls - UPDATED April 2006

Ive trawled through the entire alldata library and sorted out the r171 specific bulletins - some of them make very interesting reading If youre having any issues look through the list maybe its already known to MB. It may be a bit like a hypochondriac getting hold of a medical dictionary but Im convinced I have the Fuel Consumption problem -) My car meets all the criteria apart from the fact its not

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 anyone else experiencing similar issues

Hello I have owned my r171 200k since March 2004. I have had noises with my roof which have been solved. Now i have noise comming out of the dashboard area (or so it seems). I also have have an issue with rear right hand side license plate lamp faulty now this has been going on for quite some time and i have taken it into MB for repare a number of times and each time the tell me that they have fixed

Hmmm.... The SLK is a roadster is it not Other roadsters Ive driven or ridden in are fairly rough riding and a bit on the noisey side. Noise from the roof doors dash seats and items inside the car. In my opinion these noises contribute to the feel of a sports car and not that of a sedan. I also have a 2004 SL 55 AMG and a 2006 ML 500. These also do have some creeks and rattles too. Otherwise there

The body of a vehicle flexes a lot when driving on uneven surfaces. An SLK with a fixed roof would be bound to produce more creaking noises since the roof is multi-split and attached in many separate locations. However if the creaking is consistent then you will need some adjustment. For the smaller creaks the rubber joints will need to be treated with silocon spray or similar. This happens in all

100% unacceptable for a brand new car to have noises from the roof... I myself and people I know after a couple of years and 30.000km hear noises coming from the roof but I cant understand it for a new car I am very dissapointed from Mercedes regarding this matter

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Squeaks and bumps

My 2005SLK200k makes a lot of noise (bumps squeaks) when driving over Bangkoks rough roads Our 2004S280 makes no noise over the same roads. I drive the SLK wife drives the S usually. Is it just the cars differences or is there something that I can do to minimize the SLK noise We have a 2006SL55AMG in the States that does not make shuddering noises. Are the SLK noises something that I have to live with...or

rigid as those on saloons (such as the S class). The SLK also has less sound deadening material then the S and SLs. But a little grease and felt pads go a long way to reduce these noises according to a lot of the members. Make sure you check your car throughly because the noise may be coming from the weirdest and smallest of places. Actually I am reluctant to fiddle with the moving parts in the roof....I

Its probably worth mentioning that these noises only happen when the roof is up. When the roof is down it is quiet as can be... except for the wonderful rush of wind. I too get the occasional noise from the roof seals. I notice it a great deal more when the cars been sitting out in the sun all day. If its not too warm I console myself by dropping the top to stop the sound.

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Visit to dealer

Booked my car in to the dealer this Wednesday having a few minor niggles. Anyone got any experience of the following- 1. Knocking noise from the boot- When the roof is up there is a noise from the back of the car which sounds like there is something loose - sounds like there is something bouncing when the car goes over any undulation. Doesnt sound mechanical more a trim problem. 2. CD stuck in the

me a while to locate the source of the noise. I couldnt believe that such a small fix could basically turn a noisy car into one that is virtually silent. I choose to try and find the noise my self rather than just take it to the dealer because I know of people who have done this and the problem just got worse and worse. I just put a tiny piece of felt inside the area on either side where the roof

Pics as promised. For the boot try gently pushing it down from one side and see if it makes any loud noises. The roof stop is in the middle of the second picture. You cant even see the felt in the pic I had to look really hard but it is still there and still keeping the car creak free. You have to open the roof a bit to see it. The roof closes on its own after a few minutes.

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Am I being too picky Need your opinion

I am so much disappointed with my dealer. I purchased my r171 SLK 350 about a month ago. 1. On the delivery date my dealer called me and asked how I was going to pay for the car. I told them that I would pay combination of cash and finance. Before the delivery of my car I had pre-approved loan from capitalone and e-loans. So I thought I had no problem but my dealer told me that they would not accept

My MB delaer in Swiss Cottage London UK has been great. The salesman has just picked up my car for the 3rd time from my office. Even dropped off my matts when they came in. In case your wondering why it has gone in so many times. 1. replacement of door seal 2. test drive for sound problems (fixing today fingers crossed) 3.pick up today for fixing roof noises and creaking (see earlier point) The only problem is they refuse to order me an AMG saying their allocation is full for 2 yrs

the main pronlem with the SLK seems to be the vario roof noises. This has been identified by MB and a solution found which incorporates using a silicone gel on the joints. I have read elsewhere on this forum that the remedy is good so I just hope they get rid of my noises. The funny thing is the MB garage just called me and claim to be unaware of this problem Either they are lying or are generally

Car back and roof noises NOT solved[(] They have booked my car in for the end of the month and will be giving me an A class to drive.

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Source of creak identified

As mentioned a few times on this site Ive had an annoying creak noise which happens when I drive over a really rough road surface. It wasnt much of a pain at first (summer months) and I was reluctant to take it in until I had a better idea of what area it was coming from. My colleague had a creak on his 170 and they took it apart piece by piece making it worse each time until he finally sold it back

Many sunroofs make groaning creaking noises that lubricating the rubber seals fixes until the seals dry out again in several months. This may be the same problem. Try using Amour-All or some other type of automotive rubber trim restorer on all the roof rubber seals and see if that helps. I used a BMW product Gummi Pflege that stopped just about all the roof noise from my SLK 280. Gummi Pflege seems to last longer than other products.

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 Parcel Shelf Rattle

I just got my SLK200A last week and discovered that the rear parcel shelf rattlessqueaks with the roof up especially at slower speeds on not so smooth roads. I spoke to the dealer and they told me that they all do that as the parcel shelf is not solidly fixed. Is there any way to get rid of this rattle or at least reduce the noise it makes which is very annoying

Not all do that... I have an SLK 200 as well and I know exactly that you mean but doubt that the roads in SA are any worse than those here in Panama. Do you keep the real parcel shelf open or closed when you drive My car was making noises when I drove with the roof up. I oiled the rubber seals and it took the noise away Yes it does smear the windows for a few days but nothing a bit of windex can solve. I hope you are able to solve your problems... Cheers

the window then the rubber recess will be overwhelmed and some of the water will flow over. You might also want to look into the trunk and make sure the little tubes that redirect water are correctly fastened. These can get clogged with leaves and dirt so they need to be cleaned out. Failure to do so may result in some water seeping in. Just a by product of having a convertible with a complex roof
