1999 230 SLK -
My top stopped working and I took it to MB dealer - they quoted me $3200 for the fix. After looking at the posts here, I found the kit on Ebay and ordered it with the instructions.
I was lucky to find a great mechanic that was familiar with the other repairs and willing to take a try at this repair, since he has had other clients that need the service. We took about 7 hours, some trial & errors. IT WORKS!
His quote- 'There are only 2 kinds of tops-those that will need repair or those that have been repaired.;)

Good gig.

I resorted to the "I'm 6'9 and can open and close the roof manually from a seated position" and temporarily gave up in it.

Did he replace the ones in the trunk too? I've got the guide and while it looks possible, it looks a lot easier just to send them away for a rebuild!
