2004 hardtop

Hi All, my name is Jim and im new here...

When i tried to close my hardtop yesterday, Oil started dripping from the ceiling on both sides...Now my rear windows are open but the roof is closed...Simple or hard? I appreciate any help, I'm not that mechanically gifted.

Hi Jim, fairly simple-ish. There are quite a few posts here on R170 hydraulics. If you don't fancy doing it, print out the details and take to your local garage - will be a lot cheaper than an MB dealer.
