    I will attempt the measures just submitted. However, maybe I didn't make it clear in my original message that all locks are locked except the left rear. I am unable to unlock the three or lock the left rear. Thanks.

    The left rear lock is unlocked. The other three locks remain locked. Unable to proceed with locking the left rear, or unlocking the other three that remain locked. I think there must be a manual unlocking of those three to proceed.

    The Mercedes Sl500 has the left rear unlocked. Unable to lock or unlock period.

Hello, I see you have not been served so I will try to help you. There are two things I would like you to try.

1. Your car like all others has an amount of flex in the frame to body region. Usually there are rubber Isolators which the body is laying on. You can try jacking the frame on the right rear edge.
You do not need to lift the right rear tire. This may shift the body enough so you can release your lock.

2. Use a hair dryer on the hardtop latch assembly. The heat may give you enough clearance to release the lid.

3. Check your gaskets to see if they came out of their groove and doubled up on you. Once you remove your top this will be possible.

4. If these procedures have not helped you may be able to relatch the front mounts and see if this will free up the right rear. Leave the left rear unlatched.

Steering wheel locked how to unlock


HI,
is the vehicle on a full steerring lock left or right?
Apply the parking brake, Trans in P / N.
Insert the ign key.
Place one hand on the rim of the steering wheel and "rock" the wheel as you attempt to turn the ign key. You will feel the pressure against the steering wheel, keep "rocking" it and it should unlock as you work the ign lock.

Good luck.

How do i remove hardtop on a 1990 mercedes sl 500


Assuming the hardtop/soft top system is operating properly-push the red switch in the console towards back of car until the top pops up. Make sure you unplug the defroster harness at the r rear of top (behind passenger seat. It will take 2 people to grab the top and pull it up and off. If this system is inoperable- there is a tool in the tool kit(if not you can buy one at the dealer-called a hard top removal tool) and unlock the 2 locks in the front of the top by the sun visors, and 2 locks located behind the seats by the quarter glass panels and the 2 locks in the rear accessible through the trunk. Your owners manual will describe how to do this procedure. I hope i have been helpful

You'll need to replace the solenoid (motor) that doesn't work. Not hard once you get the door panel off. I suggest you buy the correct part, not a universal one.
