Question about Mercedes-Benz E320
Posted on May 28, 2011
The hydraulic cylinders that move the top need to be checked. The have likely lost their oil or seized. This is a common problem. It becomes very expensive even to diagnose completely. There are some DIY instructions on the various Mercedes forums but it is not for the faint of heart. A range of interior panel removals, error code checks from various electrical sockets in the vehicle and a working knowledge of hydraulics is needed. The cylinders will have to be sent for a rebuild and no way to know which ones are good or bad. Your vehicle has 8 hydraulic devices to get the to down and in place. Sorry I don't have better news but it is a big job. Finding professional help that is not a dealer is the best option. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of shops that know how to do this. They will also want to sell you new cylinders instead of getting the originals rebuilt.
