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.

Thanks for the information.
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.
