SOURCE: without warning my x type will not turn the

There is usually a light on the instrument cluster that tells you if hte immobiliser has disabled the starter. Something like a key with an X through it or something similar. See if that light is illuminated. If not, check the obvious things like fuses. Jags ignition switches have been known to have a short life span. You may need a new ignition switch and that should be done by a professional mechanic. Good luck.

1999 slk 230 kompressor convertible top sticks halfway down, hydralic fluid looks brown is it possible fluid needs to be changed?

no the fluid doesn't need to be changed. it most likely is not seeing one of the micro-switches for the convertible top or the windows are not syncronized meaning the one touch/express mode is not working. to sync windows just open and close windows using the 1st detent on the window switch. when the window is fully closed hold switch for 3secs longer. as for the micro-switches the wiring sometimes breaks behind the headliner.

Mercedes slk 230 kompressor supercharger doesn't kick in when gas pedal depressed to gain speed.

only a turbo "kicks in".a supercharger is a compressor that uses the speed of the engine, so the faster the engine the more pressure....use the gearbox for rapid acceleration....

Just but an Mercedez SLK 230 Kompressor 1999 and the hard top will not go down.

First check that you have oil on the hydraulic pump that it is inside the trunk on the rear right fender the oil should be between the marks. If thats ok check when you put the ignition on if the switch that operates the roof is on, should be off, on means that something is wrong, if blinks 6 times one of the 5 or 7 switchs are not closed, check one by one. check the two that close the trunk at the middle, the cover, the trunk limit switch, the trunk switch

I am looking for a replacement alternator. Mine

There are many parts places. We are here to help you in repair not finding parts.

You don't say if you want used or new parts. The Kompressor car is a very complicated automobile and most likely well above your expertise so please be careful if you intended to attempt this repair at home as one slight misjudgment and the turbine can be ruined for life.

I would just google for the part you need.
