Protecting the environment
H
Natural resources form the basis of our
existence on this planet. The objectives
of our policy are for these resources to be
used sparingly and in a manner which
takes the requirements of both nature
and humanity into account.
Our declared policy is integrated environmental protection. This policy starts at
the root causes and encompasses in its
management decisions all the consequences for the environment which could
arise from production processes or the
products themselves.
You too can help to protect the environment by operating your Mercedes-Benz
SLR in an environmentally responsible
manner.
Operating conditions and your individual
driving style to a large extent influence
fuel consumption and the rate of engine,
brake, and tire wear. To reduce fuel consumption and the rate of wear, please
consider the following:
2
• Avoid short trips.
• Make sure that the tire pressures are
always correct.
• Avoid frequent, abrupt acceleration.
• Do not carry any unnecessary weight.
• Remove ski holders and roof racks
once you no longer need them.
• Do not warm up the engine with the
car stationary.
• Shift gears such that each gear is
used only up to 2/3 of its maximum
engine speed.
• Keep an eye on the vehicle's fuel consumption.
A regularly serviced vehicle will also help
protect the environment. You should adhere to the maintenance intervals displayed by the Maintenance System
service indicator, along with other maintenance work described in this booklet.
We recommend that you have services
performed by an authorized MercedesBenz Center using Genuine MercedesBenz parts.

Maintenance Booklet
Introduction
We want you to enjoy your MercedesBenz SLR. Vehicle safety and operational
reliability are two very important factors
and to maintain them, regular
maintenance services are necessary.
Following each service, your authorized
Mercedes-Benz Center will reset the
Maintenance System service indicator by
confirming the service items performed.
!
We continuously strive to improve our
product, and ask for your understanding
that we reserve the right to make
changes in the required periodic
maintenance work which is required for
our vehicles.
Your Mercedes-Benz SLR comes
equipped with the Mercedes-Benz SLR
Maintenance System. The Maintenance
System tracks distance driven and the
time elapsed since your last service. The
next necessary maintenance service is
indicated in the maintenance service
indicator in the instrument cluster.
Additional work that is not calculated by
the Maintenance System is required at
each maintenance interval. Please refer
to “Additional Work to be Performed” on
page 58 for more details.
4
If the Maintenance System service
counter was inadvertently reset, have
a Mercedes-Benz Center correct it.
Please only reset if the proper
maintenance service has been
performed. Resetting the system
without performing the proper service
will result in engine and/or other
vehicle damage not covered by the
Mercedes-Benz Limited Warranty.
Maintenance Booklet
Introduction
A detailed listing of service procedures
performed are contained in this booklet,
starting on page 49.
Additional work
Additional work means any work that is
not calculated by the Maintenance System. This work is listed in the section
“Additional Work to be Performed”, see
page 58. This type of work has to be carried out according to the individual vehicle type, due to the specific technical
parameters, wear processes or special
equipment.
Special service requirements
Brake fluid should be replaced every two
years, preferably in the spring, see page
59. We recommend that you only use
brake fluid approved by Mercedes-Benz.
A reminder for the next scheduled brake
fluid replacement is affixed in the engine
compartment.
Coolant should be checked for the proper concentration before the start of the
winter season (or once a year in hot regions). Have the coolant (water/anticorrosion/antifreeze mixture) replaced
every 4 years, see page 59.
Replacement of coolant (water/anticorrosion/antifreeze mixture) may be required more frequently if coolant is not
maintained according to instructions
and/or other than approved anticorrosion/antifreeze products for your vehicle
are being used. For instructions on coolant, see “Coolants” in your vehicle Operator’s Manual. For a listing of approved
anticorrosion/antifreeze products for
your vehicle, refer to the Factory Approved Service Products pamphlet in
your vehicle literature portfolio, or contact an authorized Mercedes-Benz
Center.

Maintenance Booklet
Introduction
Interior filters (e.g. dust filter, recirculating air filter, activated charcoal filter or
combination filter) are replaced according to the maintenance intervals listed.
Under severe dust conditions, or with the
Climate Control frequently operating in
the air recirculation mode, the respective
filter should be replaced correspondingly
sooner.
Tire inspection - Your vehicle’s tires are
a critical component to overall vehicle
performance and vehicle stability. The
useful life of tires will vary and is
proportional to tire type, speed rating,
ambient conditions, tire loading, tire
inflation pressure, road surfaces, and
individual driving style, among other
factors. Therefore, Mercedes-Benz
recommends regular checks for wear and
proper inflation.
The first tire inspection, which includes
checking for proper inflation pressure
and tread condition, is at no charge provided it is performed at an authorized
6
Mercedes-Benz Center prior to 6,500
miles on the vehicle odometer.
For your convenience, this Maintenance
Booklet contains a tire inspection confirmation page on which you can record the
date and mileage when tire inspections
were performed.
Tire rotation - Tire rotations can only be
performed on vehicles with the same tire
dimensions on all four wheels (e.g. winter
tires). In cases where your vehicle is
configured with staggered tire sizes
(different tire sizes, front vs. rear), tire
rotations are not possible.
If your vehicle’s tire configuration allows
for rotation, tire rotation should be
performed by observing a front-to-rear
pattern that will maintain the intended
rotational (spinning) direction of the tire
(on unidirectional tires, an arrow on the
sidewall indicates the intended rotation
or spinning direction of the tire) and in
accordance with the tire manufacturer’s
recommended intervals, or sooner at first
signs of irregular (uneven) tread wear.
Maintenance Booklet
Introduction
Tire manufacturer’s rotation
recommendations will necessitate a tire
rotation at least once in between
maintenance services and at every
maintenance service based on
Mercedes-Benz SLR maintenance
intervals.
The first tire rotation is at no charge provided it is performed at an authorized
Mercedes-Benz Center prior to 6,500
miles on the vehicle odometer.
For your convenience, this Maintenance
Booklet contains a tire rotation confirmation page on which you can record the
date and mileage when tire rotations
were performed.
Spark Plugs should be replaced according to schedule on page 60. Severe operating conditions (frequent starting and
stopping, excessive idling, sustained fast
highway driving) may call for spark plugs
to be replaced correspondingly sooner.
Engine oils and oil filters are specifically tested for their suitability in our engines and durability for our service
intervals. Therefore, only use approved
engine oils and oil filters required for vehicles with Maintenance System. For a
listing of approved engine oils and oil filters, refer to the Factory Approved Service products pamphlet, or contact an
authorized Mercedes-Benz Center.
Using engine oils and oil filters of specification other than those expressly required for the Maintenance System or
changing of oil and oil filter at change intervals longer than those called for by the
Maintenance System will result in engine
damage not covered by the MercedesBenz Limited Warranty.

Maintenance Booklet
Introduction
Regular checks
In addition to the services, we recommend that you check the following items
regularly (for example: weekly, when refueling, or before any long journey):
• Engine oil level - Check the engine oil
level using the engine oil dipstick. Further information about engine oil level
measurement can be found in the vehicle Operator’s Manual.
• Coolant level - Please refer to the Operator’s Manual for the correct procedure to check the coolant level.
• Brake fluid level - If brake fluid has to
be added, see an authorized Mercedes-Benz Center to determine the
cause, e.g. leaks or worn brake pads.
8
• Windshield washing system - If the
washer fluid level drops below 1/3, the
windshield washer fluid level warning
lamp will illuminate. Add washer fluid
mixed with Mercedes-Benz windshield
washer solvent/concentrate, test
function and check wiper blades.
• Check lights
• Tire condition and pressures –
Check at least every other week.
Please refer to section “Tires and
wheels” in the Operator’s Manual for
guidelines and correct procedures to
check tire condition and pressures.
Please refer to the Factory Approved
Service Products booklet or see your
Mercedes-Benz Center for more information on selecting the proper fluids, lubricants, and oils for your vehicle.

Emission System Maintenance
General
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and, in California, the Air Resources
Board have certified that the emission
control systems of your vehicle comply
with the applicable exhaust emission
standards for model year 2006 vehicles.
This vehicle also complies with the applicable Canadian Motor Vehicle Emission
Standards.
To be certain that the emission control
systems function as designed, regular
maintenance is necessary for components of the vehicle which affect exhaust
and evaporation emissions composition.
The vehicle owner is responsible for the
regular maintenance of the emission control system, as well as the use of premium unleaded gasoline with an anti-knock
index of at least 91 (displayed on the
pump) in all gasoline engine models unless otherwise specified.
Failure to properly maintain the emission
system may result in repairs not being
covered by the emission system warranties.
Explanations of each maintenance job
are given in numerical order on page 63.
11
Maintenance Booklet
Emission System Maintenance
Emission Control System Caution Gasoline Engines
Your Mercedes-Benz SLR vehicle is
equipped with both a three-way catalyst
and a closed loop oxygen sensor system
to comply with current exhaust emission
regulations. Keep your vehicle in proper
operating condition by following our recommended maintenance instructions as
outlined.
The following has to be adhered to:
a) In all gasoline engine models, use
only premium unleaded gasoline
with an anti-knock index of at least
91 (as displayed on the pump) unless otherwise specified. Damage to
the engine could occur if premium unleaded fuel is not used. Refer to the
Operator’s Manual for special precautions.
12
b) Leaded gasoline should not be used
under any circumstances. Damage
to the emission control components
will result.
c) The specified engine maintenance
jobs have to be performed completely and at the required intervals. Correct ignition timing and
properly functioning spark plugs for instance are important for the service
life of the catalysts. Failure to properly
perform the specified maintenance
jobs may adversely affect the emission control system on the vehicle and
reduce its service life.
Maintenance Booklet
Emission System Maintenance
d) The operation of the emission control system must not be altered in
any way. Alterations are not permissible by law. In addition, alterations may
result in damage to the catalysts, increased fuel consumption, and impaired engine running conditions.
If the “CHECK ENGINE” indicator lamp in
the instrument cluster illuminates when
the engine is running, it indicates a possible malfunction of the engine management system or emission control system.
We recommend that you have the malfunction checked as soon as possible.
e) Irregular engine running conditions
should be corrected immediately by
an authorized Mercedes-Benz Center. Such irregular running conditions
can influence the proper function of the
emission control system.

If applicable to your vehicle’s tire configuration (see page 6), tire rotations should be performed in accordance with the tire manufacturer’s recommended intervals, or sooner at first signs of irregular (uneven) treadwear. Tire manufacturer’s rotation recommendations will necessitate a
tire rotation at least once in between maintenance services and at every maintenance service based on Mercedes-Benz maintenance intervals.

Description of Emission System Maintenance Jobs
The composition of exhaust emissions is
influenced not only by the special emission
control equipment, but also by various engine components and their adjustments.
Therefore, emission system maintenance
must include these engine components.
Some maintenance jobs are actually only
tests. They are important however, because they allow early detection of discrepancies which can later lead to
increased exhaust emissions. It is generally less expensive to have such items adjusted immediately rather than allowing
them to contribute to costly repairs. The
maintenance intervals have been determined so that the vehicle, under normal
conditions, should operate properly between services.
0101 Engine oil and filter change
Change the engine oil and oil filter every
10,000 miles. If oil consumption should increase, determine the cause and take necessary corrective steps. Reset the
Maintenance System counter.
0980 Replace air filter element
Under normal dust conditions, replace air
filter element approximately every 20,000
miles or 2 years. Clean air filter cover and
housing prior to removal of air filter element.
0780 Replace fuel filter
Replace the fuel filter approximately every
60,000 miles or 4 years.
1351 Check engine poly-V-belt condition
The poly-V-belt is subject to wear and aging. It must be checked for cracks and
wear at every service. Replace poly-V-belt
if necessary.
1580 Replace spark plugs
Spark plugs are subject to electrode erosion and must be replaced according to
schedule on page 60, or more frequently
as may be required when subject to severe
operating conditions.
