HOW WE DIAGNOSE YOUR R129
Whatever the symptoms of poor operation you are experiencing, our team will follow a strict routine to establish the source of the issues. Depending on the year of your R129, we will start by testing your roof’s operation before using the relevant ECU reader for your era of R129. Early models depend on a simple flashing code reader, whereas the later models require a STAR computer to establish the roof of the issue. In the occasions where the ECU doesn’t reveal the issue, our expert craftsmen will test different modules and micro-switches to establish the root of the issue.

WHAT WILL IT DO FOR YOU AND YOUR CAR?
Issues with your Soft Top’s electrical components will likely reveal wider problems with the state of your hood. Over time, the hood will rip and lose its tightness, allowing water to penetrate the interior of your R129 SL. In some scenarios, diagnosing and repairing electrical faults can lead to a replacement soft top hood, ensuring the issues won’t reoccur.
FUTURE VALUES & USABILITY
A fully operational Soft Top will ensure your R129 ownership experience is pure joy. You’ll be able to continue to use your car with confidence, knowing that you won’t be stranded with the roof stuck down or up in the wrong scenarios. In addition, a fully functional and new soft top hood will be a valuable record of maintenance, showing to potential buyers you have cared for your vehicle, enabling you to achieve a higher return for your vehicle.
