The SLK is a popular convertible model produced by the German automaker, Mercedes-Benz. In production since 1996, MB has produced three generations of this sporty roadster. As much as Benz owners love their SLKs, mechanical issues do come up from time to time and need to be addressed.
There are many reasons drivers may be experiencing noises coming from the inside of their car's cabin. A noisy engine valve can certainly create a disturbance and give the impression that the noise is being emitted from inside the cabin. Some drivers report that there are mysterious noises coming from the dashboard of their vehicles, while others think they have traced the noise to the seat rails.
Whatever is causing these noises, and regardless of where they are originating, this can be very vexing for drivers and the root cause needs to be addressed. While there's a good chance that this is not the sign of a major problem, it definitely could be and so nothing should be ruled out. This could be a sign of a more serious problem developing in another area of the car. When safety is a concern, drivers are well advised to take no chances.
If you are the owner of any generation of Mercedes-Benz SLK convertible, and are experiencing noises emanating from the inside of the cabin of your car, you should take you SLK in to your local German auto maintenance mechanic. A mechanic will be able to conduct a full investigation and provide you a detailed estimate of the repair.
