Has anybody experienced condensation issues on their SLK boot lid and how do I rectify
This can be a problem on a convertible in that the heat from the cab leaks into the boot creating condensation, it is the same on a building with a tin roof, the colder air outside will cause the inside to sweat and drip.
Just make sure that no water is getting in, particularly in or near the PSE pump where water can run down the wires and into the pump PCB board
Make sure your parcel shelf / roof spacer is always closed.... will stop drips into the boot and onto its contents.... and I think it helps insulate the boot a bit??
Probably a good idea to check the drains. The R170 has 2 drains at the rear. I'm not sure what the R171 has. If they are blocked water will come over the seal into the boot. As TV mentions, water in the boot can be a serious problem and cause major damage to some of the electrics.
