This sale is for the PARTS ONLY to rebuild all 5 hydraulic cylinders. If you would like the comprehensive 43-page manual, too, please see item number 280773278277. (Click the link at the top to see my other items.)

Is your headliner wrinkled and bubbled? Do you have oil spots in your trunk? If so, the hydraulic cylinders that retract your convertible hardtop are most likely leaking.Lucky for you, you’ve found an affordable, permanent way to fix ALL FIVE HYDRAULIC CYLINDERS in your retractable hardtop'shydraulic system yourself! Please note: Luckily, the two small, spindly actuators that raise the trunk lid rarely leak--and if they do, they are easy enough to remove from the car. That's because these actuators require special drill bits and a hydraulic press to rebuild. (Simply contact me for the name and number of the shop that rebuilds these two rams using the o-rings included in the kit. The other three actuators are easily rebuilt by the DIYer.)Yes, this project is easy enough for DIYers. Just ask any of my THOUSANDS of satisfied customers. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise with fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) marketing--or outright misinformation. In a recent customer-satisfaction survey, 100 percent of responding customers indicated that this project was simple to do, the manual (not included in this sale; see item number 280773278277) was easy to understand, and that years later the o-rings are still working perfectly.

This rebuild kit is designed for the Mercedes R170 chassis:

1997 - 2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK200 Kompressor

For repair of Mercedes Benz part numbers:

170 800 0572 / 170 800 05 72 / 1708000572 (Left main drive)

170 800 0672 / 170 800 06 72 / 1708000672 (Right main drive)

170 800 0372 / 170 800 03 72 /1708000372 (Left trunk lid)

170 800 0272 / 170 800 03 72 / 1708000372 (Right trunk lid)


Ten reasons why you should choose this rebuild kit:REASON 1: No need to remove the actuators from your car and send them off for who knows how long. The hydraulic lines are permanently affixed to the actuators at the factory. And fishing those thin, stiff hydraulic lines through the various tight cavities of the SLK is incredibly difficult and time-consuming. Just consider trying to get the lines in and out of the B pillar. Not my idea of fun. (Note: You may have to remove the trunk-lid actuators from the car if you choose to have someone else rebuild them, but they are comparatively easy to do so.)

REASON 2: Here’s the root of the problem: The polyurethane material that Mercedes used for the seals in the five hydraulic cylinders that retract your hardtop deteriorates within 5 to 10 years’ time. It also isn’t chemically compatible with the hydraulic fluid they use. THIS IS THE SAME POLYURETHANE MATERIAL THAT OTHERS INSTALL WITH THEIR "SERVICE." Go figure. So those seals are continually breaking down and eventually leak--this is especially the case in warmer climates. If you’re reading this, you’ve unfortunately already seen the results for yourself.


REASON 3: The o-rings in this kit are composed of Nitrile rubber. This rubber WON’T break down like the Mercedes seals, ensuring a leak-free repair that will last a lifetime.REASON 4: This kit contains all the parts you need to rebuild ALL FIVE of the problematic hydraulic cylinders: the one above the headliner that locks the top to the windshield, the two in the front of the trunk that raise the top, and the two on the sides of the trunk that raise the trunk lid. Please note: Luckily, the two small, spindly actuators that raise the trunk lid rarely leak--and if they do, they are easy enough to remove from the car. That's because these actuators require special drill bits and a hydraulic press to rebuild. (Simply contact me for the name and number of the shop that rebuilds these two rams using the o-rings included in the kit. The other three actuators are easily rebuilt by the DIYer.)

REASON 5: The repair takes as little as 4 hours from start to finish--with common tools that you already have in your garage. And it's actually fun and easy!

REASON 6: If you go to the dealer, they are going to quote you something in the neighborhood of $4,000 to fix the problem. Now, that’s a nice neighborhood, but the Mercedes parts are only going to leak again. That is just insanity. And I feel for those people who have been suckered in by the “stealer” for that repair, lacking other options. It really should be a warranty issue, as Mercedes screwed up--the actuators should have been built with o-rings in the first place.REASON 7:If you need information on how to rebuild the cylinders, you can check out my other sales for this same rebuild kit paired with my comprehensive 43-page instruction manual that walks you step by step through the repair process. It features more than 100 highly detailed photos. (Note: This sale is only for the five o-rings. The instruction manual is not included. See item number 280773278277 if you want the instruction manual, too. Click the link at the top of the sale to see my other items.)
REASON 8: My stellar response rating.
REASON 9: You can't beat the price!

REASON 10: Your money back if you're not satisfied. But you should know that I've sold THOUSANDS of these kits to date--to many many satisfied customers. :) People love this kit!
