Question about 1997 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz Sl Class
Yes there is a manual release for the locks. Hopefully you still have the tool kit with the soft top tool in it. It will have a open wrench on one side and a allen on the other. For the rear locks use the open end wrench side and behind the side trunk panels you can see the mechanism for the rear latches. Slide the tool over the release mechanism and move upwards while lifting up on the top. For the front latches swing the visors to the side and remove little round cover. Insert allen side of tool and rotate until latch unlocks. Make sure vehicle is running when ever you operate the top or hard top as voltage can affect the operation of the latches.
