SOURCE: Leaking rubber seals
I had the same problem on my wife's 2000SLK, took it to the dealer, they did a water pressure test in this area, charging me $80.00 and came up with nothing. Upon my further investigation, I discovered that there is a drain built into the rubber seal at the top of the windshield, in the corner where the top of the door glass meets that rubber seal on the driver's side. look carefully and you will see three small holes in the rubber seal at the top of the windshield and a larger triangular shaped depression in the corner, this is a "catch-basin" drain that runs all the way down the side of the rubber gasket along the end of the "A" pillar emptying in the space in front of the door, then onto the ground. First I cleaned out the triangular catch basin carefully with a small flat bladed screw driver, then used compressed air to blow out the drain. Blow out the three small holes also. This procedure worked for me. Do the same on the passenger side. Good Luck!

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
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...

Should be a screw on top of the pump - upper right side.
It should fit a hex/allen/key size 5.
Oil level should be between min and max.
After filling, tighten screw with 8NM torque
If you look down through the "brush", you'll see the screw.
The screw on top of the pump is for the refill, the one on the side is to releave the preasure when you open the top manualy. There is a refill line on the side as well.
