WELCOME > Projects > SimpleRoof SLK R170

SimpleRoof SLK R170

is a simple retractable hardtop automation module for the SLK type R170

The SimpleRoofSLK V1.00 retractable hardtop automation module for the Mercedes SLK R170 model year 10/1996 up to. 04/2004 permits retraction of the hardtop without the need to hold the hardtop control knob.

  • Holding the hardtop control knob for just a second, SimpleRoof takes over control from the time when the control knob lights up.

  • Retraction stops at the moment the control knob lamp extinguishes, so that the windows remain open.

  • Retraction can be stopped manually any time by pushing the control knob in the opposite direction. It can be restarted in either direction directly after releasing the knob. The possibility to stop retraction in the "cleaning" position remains unaffected.

  • The double click function for opening or closing both of the windows remains unaffected. Even speed shift modules for allowing retraction beyond the 5mph limit are unaffected. SimpleRoof does not implement allowing the retraction at higher speeds than 5mph.

  • SimpleRoof is connected via piggyback connectors on the wiring harness of the hardtop control knob. No wires need to be cut. The module itself can easily be removed at any time.

  • The module contains a self healing fuse, in the case of a short circuit.

  • Replication strictly allowed. Board layouts and sheets EAGLE-format are freely available.
