#217 of 226 SLK Engine Knock
Sep 26, 2006 (5:21 am)
At 5,000 my 2006 SLK280 has developed an engine knock. Had it in the shop three times now and they cant figure out what it is or how to fix it. Anyone had similar problems? Any solutions? thanks

Have almost 3000 miles on mine and it sounds like a clock... TICK TICK TICK... First time I heard it was at 1200 miles took it to Mercedes, they said it was normal and to just turn up the radio so I wouldn;t notice it... great answer huh? I am keeping my eye on it for now. good luck~! They also said it was some air pump valve on right side of engine compartment looking at car from the front. I wrapped it with sound deadnening foam and its a little quieter but I still can tell its there. Tony

My roof started acting up and I had it into Mercedes several times for repair. they replaced the sensors in the trunk twice and it still wasn't working correctly. The red light would go on and the alarm would ring every few miles no matter if the top was up or down. It also began to feel like there was air coming in from the top of the windshield. I was told that if I drove it with the top down, then the windows should be up to prevent that from happening!! Great response from a mechanic to a female whom he assumes was stupid about cars. Needless to say, I traded it in for an ML and am very happy. I also won't return to that dealership for any type of repair.

I have also had problems with our roof. We have had the car 6 weeks and in the shop 2 weeks. The problem was that the top would not go down. When they tested it it worked. So they started replacing sensors. Same problem. Went to pick up the car after they said it was fixed and when I tried it, it didn't work so I went and got them immediately and it didn't work for them either that time. Seems when the car got warm by being outside that the sensor faulted. Also if something goes wrong, I was told to continue to hold the switch for at least 30 seconds so that it can write an error code which can be read by the tech.

Holding down on a control for at least 30 seconds is what the Service Manager and the Technician told me. That way it writes a code that they can read and retrieve. Since they replaced a board where the rearview mirror is, it has been working great.
I hope that this helps.

No if something doesn't work when you press that particular button, then hold that button down for 30 seconds. This will write an error code for that particular button. Say the remote side mirror doesn't work. Then hold that button down for at least 30 seconds.
