Hi! You may want to spray a WD40 to the top to ease up the motion. Dirt may prohibits it from working and lubrication will really be necessary. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

The reason why the top gets stuck is because of the two flaps at the back. The problem is that the metal bracket under the flap gears have bent and then the gears don't open/close correctly. They have a micro switch inside which tells the roof when the flaps are closed. Have the metal bracket looked at and then adjusted

Can I use a 2007 sl500 clock in my 2003 sl500 car


Yes, it works perfectly. It has a new model number because the old model is known to fail. Keep the plastic cover from your old clock to cover the little white plastic part on the clock.

2003 sl500 the right side line is leaking hydronic fluid and the top won't open


your problem is the fluid is low and doesn't have enough fluid in the pump to operate. you can add fluid at the rear underneath your spare tire. the fluid is a special blend only at mercedes benz dealer. anything else will cause the top cylinders to fail and it is very costly to repair. the fluid is about $20. It leaks because you have a leaking seal in the top cylinder. Mercedes knew this would happen this is why it leaks right in front of your face hard to ignore that huh.

Recently started having problems with convertible top getting stuck in both the opened and closed positions. 1995 Mercedes-Benz SL500. Any idea what the problem might be? And, is there any way to bypass...


hopefully will be a easy fix this one, first check the micro-switches for the roof assembly (in the boot) and check any ground wire connections

you could try resetting the system also as this may help

if its still the same after this post back and ill try and help again.

Sl600 the retractable hard top will not retract


Its possible there is or has been a fluid leak if there isnt enough fluid the roof wont go up it will go down as the fluid runs back into the resivouir but when it goes up it needs enough fluid to go into all the pipes and hydrolics to make the roof lift this is where i would start i yhinkbthe resivoir is in the boot on the right hand side behind the panel
