New issue with the hard Top

I recently purchased a 2001 SLK230 Kompressor. Its been a great car so far, until this morning that is. i was sitting at a red light and decided to put the top down, and i did not notice the boot raising up in my rear view mirror, so i turned around and notice that the drivers side would not raise up. i pulled over and pulled the emergecy release and it promptly popped out. after i got home i did alittle digging i took a look at the latch and everything there seems to be fine that i can tell, and it looks like the other end of the cable attatches to the base of the hydrolic arm. so im not really sure what is wrong. once i pulled the emergency release cord the top goes up/down just fine, but i just cant get it to release without holding the button down and wearing out the motor..the fluid level is a bit low but im not sure if that has anything to do with it. help would be greatly appreciated.
