    Do you know where I can find the diagram of the electric mechanism of this hard top roof?

    I don´t have to just take it off, I have to repair the system also.

    Thanks

You have to have a 'allen wrench" set (metric) to get the front locks open, then just follow the owners manual instructions and it will pop off.

    You would have to get that from a Mercedes dealer. It's in the service manual, they will have it.

Can you hear the motor turning? If so, then the track may have came off motor gear. If you do not hear the motor, check the fuse, check relay with ohmmeter, and check power to and from the switch and motor.

The RHS rear door is locked closed with c/locking lever in closed position.


general reply because car maker not given


door lock actuator or switch failed
or child lock has hard locked the door

the fix
open other side door
remove the rear seats top and lower pads
from there you can undo most door cards when a door is closed

with the door card removed

you can physically unlock and open the door

only cut the door card away in desperation
if you have another door card from a wreckers yard
with same trim and color to fit back onto the door

Unable to open car doors with car key from outside of the car


Did you get in any type of crash with that door? I think it might be jammed or part of the locking mechanism was bent. You can bring it in, it shouldn't be too hard to fix.

I am unable to open the trunk to my 2003 Toyota Corolla. Tried first with the key. Key lock is now in a horizontal position & won't unlock or move back to a veritical position. Also tried the release...


try pushing down real hard on the trunk and see if the lock will move. And if it doesn't then if you aplly alot of pressure to the top of the trunk and removing it real fast such as hitting it or sitting it. It may shake the lock loose.

Unable to open my front passager door from both inside and out on my peugeot 307 sw. I is'nt frozen due to cold, not cold enough


Did a seat belt or other obstruction get caught between the door and opening? Try pushing hard on the door from the outside (and near the latch area) to see if it is fully closed. If no help, seek help from an auto body technician.

My soft top is not working, wont go down, when I release the catch the windows go down and when i press the up button to close thr roof the windows close but roof doesnt


No doubt your soft top issue has long been resolved but just in case someone has a similar issue:
I started to open my A4 Soft top externally using the door key method and like an idiot I must have disengaged the key before the soft top was fully down. I was unable to activate the opening or closing of the soft top automatically using either the key or soft top switch inside. I then manually closed the soft top using the users handbook and manual tool supplied. Soft top would still Not open automatically and the soft top alarm would activate. I solved the issue by manually opening the soft top fully and then manually closing the soft top fully. This seemed to have reset whatever had gone askew.

Unable to open hard top on slk230 1999 mercedes benz


another suggestion is that you need to have the code re-entered for the hardtop. I just had mine repaired due to a busted hydrolic hose, and the mechanic had a hard time getting it to work properly and ended up having to re-enter the codes.
