The SLK does not use an electric motor to open and close the hard top. It uses a hydraulic pump and five hydraulic actuators (or cylinders). Of course, the pump itself does contain an electric motor, but it is considered to be all one pump unit. They can be purchased used on Ebay for about $500 to $600.

This symptom almost always points to a mechanical issue, not an electrical one. The SLK hardtop is notorious for needing to be lubricated every couple of years. Here is a link with directions and photos:

Sticking joints are the most common culprit to intermittent raising and lowering problems. Once those have been lubricated and that has been checked off the list, then consider looking into electrical issues.

The moisture from the rain may be helping to lubricate these joints and that might be why it works fine in the rain...
