Easy DIY fix. Google "TOP HYDRAULICS". Paid $55.00 each after sending in the ones I took off. Got back a set with better seals installed and droped cylinders back in above windshield. Saved Over $1,000 dealer wanted to charge. Instructions and Video on YouTube also.

    You'r wecome. My 95 SL500 has served me well but from time to time something needs fixing. I research how to do it myself whenever I can because the dealer in my area "sees me coming and lick his chops." The repair was not difficult and I don't feel Ripped Off by a dealer.
