If I could do it over again this would be the first mod I did to my car. It is awesome Trust me - youll love it.

Would the Smart Top work with the standard key fob (RF) or only if you had the optional key fob off of the Premium pkg. My key fob does not operate the top only the interior switch.

My key fob does not operate the top only the interior switch. My key fob is a standard one that only operated the doors until I installed the Smart Top module. To make the Smart Top work you press the same keys but you press them 2 or 3 times depending on what you want to do.

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R171 New to BenzworldHaving trouble with 05 SLK convertible roof

Hello I am new to this forum. I joined because of a terrifying experience I had last night with my slk 350 convertible roof. This has never happened to me before and I was wondering if any others ever experienced a similar problem This weekend (of course being a holiday weekend when the dealership is closed) my roof started malfunctioning. Several times this weekend when taking the roof down on my

I am very sorry to hear youre having trouble with your roof. Youll definitely want to get into a dealer to have it tested and corrected as necessary. I have not had the symptoms you describe but I have had my partition get popped in the open position after the roof started to lower. It happened I think because the handle of a parcel bag got stuck in the trunk latch and the bag shifted when the boot

Thanks Taroliw. Your explanation makes a lot of sense to me now. I had been grocery shopping yesterday evening and perhaps maybe one of my bags bummed the partition causing it to open - not sure and Ill never really know. But I do know that I will never reach in with my whole body to reclose the partition if I ever have the same malfunction. I hope I dont sound too dramatic but for a short moment my

welcome lisanne as a precaution I usually check the roof partition in the mornings before I lower the roof and check it again when I return home from work unless the roof is in the retracted position already. Glad you were not seriously hurt. When you get a chance pleae update your profile to include location--stateprovince and country. This info helps those who are answering the post as options vary from country to country. Welcome again.

The roof partition may pop out but Ive never had it happen to me... I think it might happen if you dont fix it in well enough because if you do the clips on the sides should latch in and lock the partition in place. From there on its impossible to push the partition off unless you unlock it. Ive seen dealers putting the partition in place but doing so haphazardly with one side not completely latched.

If there is something bulky under the luggage cover open the boot and take it out.

The convertible 911s (or some other Porsche) as well as the Ferrari 360 Spyder use technology developed by the company who made the slk vario roof.

They posted a link to the company page on the R170 forum a year ago... Anyway leave 2 feet of

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

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 is there a special edition with a moon roof or black colored roof

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 Question about the roof.....

This may be a stupid question...but I have just recently been given an old slk and whenever I parked the car outside for lets say a few hours the roof would not happen especially on a sunny day. I know the heat could expand the parts which may prevent it from opening properly (ie the boot opens but roof wouldnt retract) but this has also happened on a partly cloudy day. Therefore it would be great if people can share their knowledge on this issue and all help is appreciated.
