Thanx for reading, the problem basically is that I have the top down, and when I try to close it, it gets stuck in the first phase, which is the trunk lid opening and the top getting out of it! Basically it stops, half way, it did it a couple of times, and I had a friend yank the top and it went passed the resistance point, didn't do it again for several days untill 2 days again! and it's raining now, good thing I still have my other car!... so does anyone know about this problem? solution? suggestions?
thanks in advance :)

    I am not who to recommend, a body shop or an upholstery shop or the dealer/independent Mercedes shop. Everything has to remain in sink and the last thing you want to do is strain something or brake it. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
