Hard top problem: 1991 Mercedes 300 sl (Leak on corners in front)

Hello!
I have a leak on the drivers side top left corner and a little leak on the right corner. It seems like it is not latching on when I lock the top down. Do these have a cable or something that is broken?
thanks for your advice! I appreciate it. Jim

Just had mine fixed last week. Your hydrolic hose is busted and once all the fluid leaks out, your top will STOP working. Mine stopped in mid-air!!! We had to put it up manually which was NOT easy. Also, the fluid leaked and ruined my leather headliner. Cost to repair convertible top was approximately $800.

RE: 1991 Mercedes Benz 500SL... when I put gas in the tank it doesnt leak until I start the car & then it leaks profusely underneath the rear passenger side.


Hi there. The reason it only leaks when you turn the car on is because the gas tank is pressurized, but only after the car has had a chance to pressurize the tank (when the car is turned on). To fix this, you need a new gas tank! Alex

1998 Mercedes Convertible Top Slow and Drips Oil


Your top is moved by an electric motor wich operates a hydraulic pump which moves two pistons which move the top.
The "oil" thet you see is probably hydraulic fluid leaking from the drain hole in the car near the tire.
You have a leak in the hydraulic system.
You need to start at the motor/pump/reservoir unit behind the seat and find the leak.
Most commonly, it is a bad line. Second in popularity is a bad cylinder(s). Third on the list is the motor/pump/reservoir.
If you replace a line, do them all. If you replace a cylinder, replace them both.
