:rockon:I am new to the forum as I have just purchased a lovely silver R170.
What a great car, love driving it.

Sorry to say I have yet another roof related question. I have searched but have not found the answer I need for this one.

When I try to raise or lower it the left side boot unlocks and tried to lift but the right side does not unlock.

If I pull the manaul cable release first in the boot the it works fine.

Is there a way to make sure both sides are in sync or a way to fix the lock.

I am in Devon in the UK.

Thanks

Check to see the tension on the cables are about equal. They do stretch over time, but are adjustable.

Welcome to the World’s Premier Mercedes-Benz SLK Community from Valrico, Florida!

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. And it only takes about 30 seconds to do!

You might want to post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already.



Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:

If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. Be patient and a knowledgeable member or guest will address your question.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message)- capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
New members and guests should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
