SOURCE: slk 230

The hydraulic cylinder lines are designed to not be removable from the cylinder. There have been people who have done it, me, but it requires redesigning the attachment point. Not for the novice. If you are replacing the part, the new one comes with the lines attached. You must remove the plastic interior in the trunk and disconnect the lines at the pump. If you are only rebuilding the cylinder and reinstalling it, it can be done without removing the lines from the car. You will rebuild it sitting in the passenger seat. you will need the replacement O-rings sold on Ebay.

Bad news, if you are experiencing one cylinder leaking, it is very likely the other two that raise the top will begin leaking very soon. This is because all three cylinders use a rod seal made of the same material that degrades over time. The two remaining cylinders (of five) that raise the trunk almost never go bad because they were originally designed with the O-rings.

Costs:

-New cylinders run $300 to $400 apiece
-About $40 to $60 to have your cylinders rebuilt, apiece
-Around $10 to $20 to buy the O-rings on Ebay

Where is the fill plug for 1999 mecedes slk 230 hydraulic roof pump


Should be a screw on top of the pump - upper right side.
It should fit a hex/allen/key size 5.
Oil level should be between min and max.
After filling, tighten screw with 8NM torque

If you look down through the "brush", you'll see the screw.


The screw on top of the pump is for the refill, the one on the side is to releave the preasure when you open the top manualy. There is a refill line on the side as well.

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.

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
