Hi to all:
I'm very happy with my 1999 slk had it for several months now and was fixing the salsa paint scratches inside which came ok.
Now I really messed up! I was trying to replace the headliner and instead of leaving the switch on as the manual states, I took the key off and my top went down. I tried to close it but it did not go up, I moved the top switch up and down and finally I forced the top out with some help and put it up (not locked). Hydraulic fluid leaked from the top by the front right and the right rear side.
The top is up, little windows down and the warning sound comes up while driving. Hydraulic reserve looks empty and my attempts to make it work have been negative.
Any ideas and help will be very appreciated from this retired U.S.Army soldier.:usa:
Thanks in advance,
Jose

Jose, I'd like to welcome you, but can't help with the top. There are several smart r170 owners here who can help.

Welcome from London, and as others have said, Gabus is the R170 man, so hopefully he'll be able to give you some pointers!
