SOURCE: roll bar on clk 320 cabrio

I have a 2005 CLK 320. Roll bars deployed on a bump with the top up. Here's how to fix it: There is a reset port about 12 in below each headrest. The port is hard to find, but you can actually glimpse it with good light and/or a flashlight and some head/neck contortion. When facing forward the port is on the left side of each headrest. The port is oval in shape, about 4mm x 8mm, positioned about 10 mm forward of the support post and about 5mm to its left. Essentially, its an oval hole in black sheet metal. Mercedes mentions an allen key tool included with the car, but you can use a very long screwdriver or, preferably, a metal shishkabob barbecue skewer (by far the best) to reset the mechanism. Slide the tool (skewer, screw driver or allen key) straight down along the side of the headreast and then very carefully angle the tip forward and to the left (of car) to go into the port. Again, you can see this if you try. Push down on the spring under the port and hold down while you push down (Hard) on the headrest to its full reset position. Then remove the tool. Voila!

Before the reset, the top would not go down. After the reset, no problemo. Dennis

SOURCE: cant get soft top up

Sounds like you are probably low on fluid. Check for leaks and fill system. Also make sure car is level. I also suggest you get an owners manual as all of it is covered by the book.

Replacing the hard top on a Mercedes SL 320. The roof has docked at the offside front but none of the other points are in. However, now I cannot release the one point that has gone in... Is there an...


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.

My roll bars (back seat head rests) are stuck in the UP position and I can't close the top while they are up. How do I get them down mechanically, the guide shows plenty of info for the top but nothing...


just push the roll bar button in the up position like you raising the roll bar. hold it for about ten seconds or til you hear a click sound. basically your just going to reengage the mechanism again since the roll bar got deployed while driving. If thats not the case then you might have a separate problem but I would start there.

I own a 1995 mercedes SL500 and recently started having trouble with the left front door window. While stopped in a construction zone, I rolled both windows down. After leaving the construction area, I...


The window position is monitered by the softop control module. It sounds like the glass is very dirty and drawing too much amperage during window operation. The soft top is electro hydraulic. The roll bar is operated normally with hydraulics but it is mechanically released in an emergency situation. 1st make sure your windows are clean and the express(one touch operation) is working-the soft top will not function properly if the windows are not synchronized. Next be sure your roll bar works-hold swith in up position to lock roll bar rams in if they have been deployed. next put your top all the way up. untill windows roll up and try it with the engine running and trans in nuetral- if it still does not work mechanically secre rear of top with tool provided in your tool kit the owner's manual will tell you how to do this. good luck

THE SOFTTOP ON MY 98 SL500 won't go all the way up.


I solved my own problem by accident! I checked the hydraulic fluid under the spare tire and voila' the top started to work fine! It has worked perfectly now since July!
