Among the many problems I have had with the top operation is one of the worst. I've had numerous problems with it and the most current is the car top will not line up properly with the windshield top so it will not close.
Can the top be rebuilt somehow to make it work
I turned car on and then turned the knob to turn on lights but nothing came on.
This is for a 97 sl500.
Top goes down slowly and needs manual help occaisonally when putting it up

We have taken it to 3 different mercedes mechanics and none of them have figured out why it is making the noise. If we open the hood it does not sound like it is coming from that area, but it is still inside the car. It seems to only happen after the car warms up.
I have a 1997 SL500 with 57000 miles on it and it was working great one day when I had the top open as soon as pressed the red botton to close the top the engine turn off and I couldn't start the car any more, I had it towed away to a mechanic when the car got there the engine started but the top never closed, mechanic said car needs a soft top panel control which cost ove $1000, I can not trust the mechanic word, is that possible?
