MERCEDES BENZ SL R230 SL55 Vario Convertible Roof Trunk Flap Problem

Hi I have a 2005 SL55 with the trunk flap problem. I have searched around this forum and havent found any information on what parts to replace. So the problem is with the trunk flaps that fold in or out when the top is folding out or in the trunk. The flaps will not stay and no matter how much I adjust the bolts to hold them in place they do not work. My vehicle is currently out of warranty and itll be really helpful if someone can tell me what parts need to be replaced. Thanks

MERCEDES BENZ SL R230 mercedes R230 convertible failure

hi i would appreciate if any body answer my question regarding convertible failure the roll bar stay in half and the top does not open thanks.

I too have written about it extensively on this forum and the other popular MB forum. The first diagnosis showed a loss of hydraulic fluid and one of the left roof pistons had a seal cracked (probably from the car not being used much I bought it from someone who kept it in a garage and didnt drive it - a 2003 with 7800 miles on it). That piston was replaced and I thought all was well. Its back at the

My roof and bar would not move and it turned out to be the hydraulic pump.

Guess what...my last fix at the Dealer didnt work either. I thought when they bled the air out of the system that it was fixed. However the symptom returned. Very slow top movement on initial operation and better although not perfect after that. Within one day or so the symptom returned. Back to the Dealer and they finally determined that the PUMP was malfunctioning. When they compared the SOUND of

MERCEDES BENZ SL R230 panorama roof

Hi Guysbr br Im wondering if the Panorama roof has variable tinting via photo electrics () or other means. Does anybody know anything about itbr br Regards Lawrence.

Still debating about whether to add the Panoramic roof. Had decided against it until I saw the price today as less than half what is was for the old model.br br Anyone who has lived with the panoramic roof have any input Assume there are some trade offs (less insulation more noise) but since I live in an area where we have sunny convertible days only once in a blue moon perhaps the see through roof makes more sense here in a northern clime than it would in the sunbelt

MERCEDES BENZ SL R129 Roof Issues with Video Pics

Greeting everyone and Happy New Years Eve My R129 soft top roof refuses to retract back. When I turn on the vehicle I hear what I assume to be the roof attempting to fold back. It seems like its jammed but Im honestly not sure. Ive uploaded a few images along with a video so you can get a better visual. Thanks in advance mercedes 500SL R129 roof issues - YouTube

is the first step the system takes when trying to open the top. Please confirm. Do the windows move with the regular window buttons Do you hear a chime when you go into gear Have you checked the fuses in the trunk very carefully and does the horn work If fuses are positively good (not cracked or corroded at the holder) then the next step will be code reading.

You cannot retract the roll-bar headrests with the top closed. You must first lower the top manually. There are instructions in the owners manual for raising the top manually.

MERCEDES BENZ SL R230 Convertible trunk doesnt close

I have 2003 SL & I have a problem with the trunk. it doesnt close after opening or closing the roof. After opening or closing the roof I have to get out from my car & push the trunk by my hand little bit then use the convertible key in the console & it closes by itself. Why this is happening I can see that the hydraulic pump is trying to close the trunk but it cant. I have checked the last cylinder

MERCEDES BENZ SL R230 Hardtop main roof latch leaking oil

Im new to this board and hoping someone can help....I tried a search but came up empty. I have a 2003 SL-500 and the main latch piston on roof just above rear view mirror is leaking. I pulled the headliner out and its spurting right out of the piston seal when the roof closes. There are 2 small back hydraulic lines go into the aluminum housing.they look pressed in and Im not sure where to disconnect

seal well enough when there is no pressure on the line. Folks the removal and re-installation is a bit tedious but no rocket science -- you can do it The dealer would charge you lots of labor plus hundreds of bucks for a new cylinder when our rebuildsupgrades cost a fraction of new cylinders and are actually better than new. No kidding. Top Hydraulics rebuilds all hydraulic cylinders for all mercedes

MERCEDES BENZ SL R230 Roof broken

I have 2003 SL 500 and two flopswhich are inside of trunk and are supposed to flip over when roof is being lowered are not working and just hanging down in trunk. Anyone had similar problem with it And how to fix it I hate have convertible and not being able to use it... Alsoanyone has website for aftermarket body kits

Had same problem. Took it to MB because I have a 3 year warranty through MB thinking it would be covered but it was not. The final cost was 923 to repair. They had to replace 1 motor. There is one motor for each side. Now I have my convertible back. Good luck on your repair.

I needed a new Hydraulic pump for the same problem. It cost over 1900. Fortunately I had an extended warranty on my 03 SL500. I too now have my convertible back. Stan

MERCEDES BENZ CLK II 209 w209 convertible roof need to open manualy - no electricity

Hey there I need to open the roof manually as there is no electricity on the car. The reason that i need it its because i must replace on of those 2 parts under that panel that lifts to take the roof down in bonet and to replace that part i need that panel to be lifter a little up so i can unscrew the drive inside it thanks in advance

Please add your profile with modelyearlocation as this often helps. The details of this operation is in your handbook - if you have one.

MERCEDES BENZ SL R230 Convertible retracting top rubbing

2003 SL (R230) I have no idea when this problem started but upon the final closing sequence of the truck lid rotating down to conceal the folding roof the truck lid just slightly comes in contact with both sides of the top corners of the each rear (left & right) quarter panel. This metal-to-metal contact has caused a (..roughly..) inch long rub mark thats worn away the paint and exposed the metal.

MERCEDES BENZ SL R129 If it wasnt a convertible would you still love it as much

I really enjoy my R129. But now that its a little cooler out (South FL cold is under 70) I dont put the top down as much. Going to work its a little chilly but coming home its comfortable. Ive noticed that I dont have near as much fun in the car when the top is up. Not sure that I would put up with her high maintenance issues it was just a regular coupe.

MERCEDES BENZ SL R230 SL Convertible Top Hydraulic Malfunction

Hi everyone I have a 2003 SL 500 and have noticed hydraulic fluid leaking right above my passenger side window now for about a week. Today when I went to close my convertible top the rear hatch opened about six inches and is COMPLETELY STUCK My roll bar is retracted 90 percent in the downward position as well. When I push the buttons to activate the roll bar andor top I hear nothing but silence....

Obviously you have a leaking cylinder valve in the front latch area. There are several of such cylinders involved in the vario roof operation. The system has probably leaked to the point where the hydraulic pump is now empty. Hence it is unable to lift any of the components. Needless to say you should have taken care of this on first notice or at least stopped operating the roof till the issue is fixed.

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 Whats a 113 Convertible

The local Craigs List has a post for mercedes 113 convertible for parts. Another has a 1989 Marsadies Diesel for parts.

The R113 has more in common with the SLK than the SL. These cars which I believe were often called by the nickname Pagoda for their roof-lines (when the hard top is fitted included pic is topless so detail not visible) are generally small nimble and unlike our compartively lumbering 3800 lb. beasts are quite light even with the iron blocks they had in them. A good example should remain unmolested but

MERCEDES BENZ SL R230 Rattling and creaking roof

I bought a 500 SL 50K 2004 recently. While driving on uneven roads (and there are a lot of them here in Belgium) I noticed a rattling and creaking noise coming from the roof. I read on this forum that putting some lube on the rubbers might help. I did but the noise is still there. Is there anything else I can do (turn some screws ) or take it to the garage. Thx

I also got a 350 SLK and my wife s got a BMW convertiblethey are absolutely quiet. The SLK has the same age as the SLbut was new when I bought it.

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 Convertible top cable help

Hi all The cable that runs down the middle of the rear window on the convertible top has broken at the top. Im very unfamiliar with its function but I think it creates tension through the top right Currently the edge of the hood over the door windows do not sit tight against the frames - is this related to the broken cable Can this cable be replaced without having to dismantle the convertible hood

The rear cable looks simple to replace but the thread whilst showing install of the side cables and pictures of damaged ones doesnt show install into a roof already in situ as far as I can see. Ill have another closer look at mine and it may become clearer. Also the side cables appear to come with new roofs whereas I just need the cables - any ideas where these are sourced Mega thread btw

To bad the C-convertible will be the only one with a fabric roof.

MERCEDES BENZ SL R129 Can I remove roof hydraulic cylinders and manually lock in the roof

The hydraulic cylinders for soft top in my 95 SL500 are leaking and will need to be sent for refurbishing. Can I remove the cylinders and just manually lock in my hardtop till the cylinders are returned back to me This is my daily driver so need the top on daily. Thanks in advance for your answers

juuso congrats on installing the locks again without cylinders in them while you are waiting for us to rebuild your whole set. Congrats also on snipping the correct wire for the chime in the dome light assembly. You had already removed the dome light assembly to get the distributor 1298000022 out of the windshield header so that makes it a little easier. Just for completeness forum member rorypff pointed

MERCEDES BENZ SL 107 OT Family Convertible

Weve filled the r107 and weve also got a bun in the oven. Ive been shopping some upgrade r107s but should face the reality that if I am to sell my r107 (with the intention to upgrade it) I should consider a car that seats 5. I know these cars are still fun to take out even without the whole family but Ive got to admit that some of the most fun times have been with the full car going for milkshakes

Nobbys got a good point. BUT you can always ride with just two in a bigger car. No response on this one. Seems a little fishy with the listing in State College PA but a description that mentions California and has pictures of palm trees and clay tile roof that is beyond rare in State College PA. Lincoln Continental eBay Probably too good to be true.
