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!

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.

98 SL500 dead battery. Can't open trunk to get to


Hi Your S class has two batteries. The smaller one is located in the engine bay, and the bigger one in the boot (trunk). No need to access any of them, simply open the door with key, insert key to start engine, you will notice that not all ignition lights will come on, but the engine WILL start, and the batteries will be recharged after a short while.
