there is no easy way for the consumer to manually open the top. you will need MB software to diagnose whether this is a "control" issue (switch, module, etc) or if it is
"mechanical." the major issue on this car is loss of fluid
from a leaking cylinder or the pump itself. the top will not function if the pump is low on fluid and must be refilled to operate the top. suggest a good local MB shop,
as this is not a do-it-yourself job.
