The hard and soft top of your SL are superbly designed, but a stretched cable or broken latch can ruin a dry sunny day. Your soft top should seal correctly to the windscreen and decklid, while all levers should operate the mechanism without being stiff or difficult to use. Time and poor maintenance can make your soft top a misery, and it doesn’t need to be this way. The same levers that release the soft top also secure the hard top, and anyone who’s experience a hard top getting stuck will appreciate that it takes three people to resolve the issue.
The operating mechanism for both your hard and soft tops will be checked and serviced, along with all the relevant levers and cables. The end result will be a roof that works exactly as it should.
There can be nothing more frustrating than climbing in your car on the first day of the season only to find that the soft top cannot be lowered, or that the hard top is stuck fast and will not be persuaded to come off. Having a correctly functioning roof mechanism is one less thing to worry about – concentrate on where to go with the roof down, not how to get it down!
