SL600 retractabke top/trunk closure problem

I was caught with my top down; and I can’t get it up, Please help. The top on my SL600 will retract open and close however the trunk will not close when the retractable top is closed.

Once the top is closed I continue the pull the lever and the light will say in operation and I can hear the motor running however the trunk is stuck open. This problem originated when it started raining when the top was open. What can I do to fix my car?

TRUNK WONT CLOSE


After years of use either the actuator is interfering with closure or the pin assembly has pushed the lock asembley down. May need to be loosened and raised for proper closure around the pin that keeps it closed. Also oiling may free up some funtion of the trunk closure assembly.

How do you put the top down. I have a rental, and their is no owner's guide.


1.Empty the trunk of all contents
2.Park on a level surface and set parking brake, shift auto trans into Park or manual into R
3.Turn the ignition off.
4.Open the trunk.
5.Pull down the convertible top latch located above the rearview mirror and turn it counterclockwise to unlatch . Leave the latch open and turned to prevent damage.
6.Pull rearward on the side edge of the convertible top and pull it off of
the windshield frame.
7.Push the convertible top down into the trunk
8.After the top is stored, push on the convertible top to ensure that the top is fully retracted and securely stored.
9.Close thet runk by pressing down from the rear center of it with a swift, firm motion.

2000 mercedes benz retractable hard top will not retract


underneath the trunk liner by the spare is usually where the pump and relay are located. The reservoirs are generally in the r side of trunk. These vehicles are very compact and they have a space saver spare that has an air pump to inflate tire. Remove those items and look in owners manual for reservoir and fluid specs.. Try starting your car and raising the top all the way on. You also may have not retracted your cargo cover in trunk or the microswitch on the side has fallen off giving faulty input to the module. Even though the pump is running the fluid isn't being dispursed to the proper r.a.m.s for 1 of 2 reasons. either you have a bad or loose microswitch. Or a cable is broken or loose not closing or opening up a microwitch and the module is in "limp home mode" it is the default of the system designed so no one or no thing gets hurt. If none of these things help you the top can be raised or lowered manually. your owner's manual tells you how to do this. Then you will need to get the car scanned for codes to properly diagnose the problem. Good luck
