Question about 1995 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class
Your softop is actuated via hydraulic rams that close latches and pull cables too move the soft top. It is a common failure. I'am assuming that it is the front latch ram's located above the windsheild.If not they are all very similar. If it is an easy one to remove or if you can see it closely-there will be a mercedes part number on the ram. it will start with a 129 prefix because your model is a 129. it will be followed by a 3 digit number and then a 4 digit. If you can read the nunber call a dealership or independent german garage and give them the number and they can order it for you. Your owner's manual should explain how operate your top manually and how to bleed your hydraulic system. I know from experience with these tops tha if you leave your key on and partially operate your roof to expose these rams it will self retract every 15 minutes so do not have your hands in the way and take your key out of the ignition because once you loose complete hydraullic pressure the roof will move. Good luck
