Sounds like you are probably low on fluid. Check for leaks and fill system. Also make sure car is level. I also suggest you get an owners manual as all of it is covered by the book.

I can't figure out how to open the gas door on a 1995 Sl500 Mercedez. Any idea


I believe the door is hinged about 1/3 of the way back. If you press on the door toward the front of the car it should swing open. Make sure your doors are not locked because it also locks the fuel door.

Dont forget to accept this answer so I can get credit. Thank you

Replacing the hard top on a Mercedes SL 320. The roof has docked at the offside front but none of the other points are in. However, now I cannot release the one point that has gone in... Is there an...


yes there is a manual release for the locks. Hopefully you still have the tool kit with the soft top tool in it. It will have a open wrench on one side and a allen on the other. For the rear locks use the open end wrench side and behind the side trunk panels you can see the mechanism for the rear latches. Slide the tool over the release mechanism and move upwards while lifting up on the top. For the front latches swing the visors to the side and remove little round cover. Insert allen side of tool and rotate until latch unlocks. Make sure vehicle is running when ever you operate the top or hard top as voltage can affect the operation of the latches.

How do I open the soft top on a merceedes 320 sl and move the wing mirrors


Wing widows should go down on thier own after you release the winshield locks and rear defroster wire and pull the top down switch back. If it doesnt work the button will flash that means something is wrong. Car running is usally a good idea when doing this to speed it up.

I need to raise the soft top on my mercedes 500 sl but when i try with the switch it makes a noise but nothing happens is there a way to raise it manualy


There is no way to raise it manually. You most likely have bad seals/pistons that have leaked out the fluid. Check your manual for where you can put fluid into it, and pop over to benzworld.org for group help on mercedes issues.

Did you release the winshield locks? and remove the defroster wire? After that you should pull back on the switch and the pins should just release to the body.

Car must be on a level surface. Make sure hydraulic system is full and pistons dont leak and go from there.

the soft top module is receiving an illogical switch input. try retracting the top untill all the locks are secure. Make sure your roll bar operates o.k.. also only operate this top with the car running and the windows up. If it still won't work I would suggest having the car scanned for codes. You can try disconnecting the negative cable on the battery and secring the top manually and see if reconnecting neg. will clear the memmory.
