    Greetings to you all.
    My name is Vic and I am a new member to the club, having recently purchased a 2008 SL500 (facelift).
    It is a truly wonderful car. However, it has all the usual problems and my main concern at the moment is the water leaks into the boot.
    I have found the wonderful instructions which "television" posted some while back but the photographs are extremely fuzzy and it is impossible to see what to do.
    I am sure the photographs would not have been this blurred when first added.
    Am I doing something wrong?
    Do I have to join "photobucket" or what?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks,
    Vic
