It took Mercon Dextron III.

Of course, MD IV, V or Mutli-Vehicle would be better (the new multi-vehicle formula is what is being widely recommended by all nowadays).

hopefully will be a easy fix this one, first check the micro-switches for the roof assembly (in the boot) and check any ground wire connections

you could try resetting the system also as this may help

if its still the same after this post back and ill try and help again.

SOURCE: how to reset airbag for mercedes benz c220 1994

This can not be reset by conventional methods. This must be done through a scan tool. Usually only the dealer scan tool will communicate with the SRS module. If the SRS light is on you have other issues and they must be remedied before the light will go out. There is no way of knowing what the issue is without running codes with the scan tool.

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.

I need to raise the soft top on my mercedes 500 sl but when i try with the switch it makes a noise but nothing happens is there a way to raise it manualy


There is no way to raise it manually. You most likely have bad seals/pistons that have leaked out the fluid. Check your manual for where you can put fluid into it, and pop over to benzworld.org for group help on mercedes issues.

the soft top module is receiving an illogical switch input. try retracting the top untill all the locks are secure. Make sure your roll bar operates o.k.. also only operate this top with the car running and the windows up. If it still won't work I would suggest having the car scanned for codes. You can try disconnecting the negative cable on the battery and secring the top manually and see if reconnecting neg. will clear the memmory.

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

How to lower soft top manually on 1995 SL500?


It depends how much hydraulic pressure you have in the system. Take your softop tool and unlock the rear locks via trunk. see if you can raise the rear of the top (do not force because you will damage a ram). Next unlock your compartment lid and then the front of the top. You may be able to then retract it into it's storage compartment. The manual should also tell you how to release the hydraulic pressure via your pump in the trunk by your spare. hopefully I have been helpful

On my 1991 SL there is a secondary hydraulic ram which is leaking badly. It is located in the roof linkage on the near side. Is it feasible to change this unit without major surgery? Where can I find...


Your softop is actuated via hydraulic rams that close latches and pull cables too move the soft top. It is a common failure. I'am assuming that it is the front latch ram's located above the windsheild.If not they are all very similar. If it is an easy one to remove or if you can see it closely-there will be a mercedes part number on the ram. it will start with a 129 prefix because your model is a 129. it will be followed by a 3 digit number and then a 4 digit. If you can read the nunber call a dealership or independent german garage and give them the number and they can order it for you. Your owner's manual should explain how operate your top manually and how to bleed your hydraulic system. I know from experience with these tops tha if you leave your key on and partially operate your roof to expose these rams it will self retract every 15 minutes so do not have your hands in the way and take your key out of the ignition because once you loose complete hydraullic pressure the roof will move. Good luck
