    Hi,
    I have just bought an SLK 230, 2000 so am new to this club. I LOVE the car but have a few niggles. Firstly, where is and what is the pse please?
    The supercharger is rattling like a diesel engine and want to know if it's just about to give up on me. Lastly, the aircon is not working- before I get the system recharged only to find that the compressor is broken, are there any common issues with it?
    Sorry if I am posteing on the wrong page but will hopoefully get the hang of things as time goes on.:D

    Hi and welcome :)

    Just had my PSE replaced under warranty (fortunately).

    The PSE is found in the boot, down on the bottom right hand side next to spare wheel and jack.

    Enjoy :)

    The rattle you mention could be exhaust the front section clamp bolts rot away causing a rattle and exhaust blow.
