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.

forgive me for saying in your time of need, did you do a search, top right for your query?

also do a search for leapyfish. his signature block has links to r170 roof issues.
