Leaking oil behind driver side visor where the soft top attaches to body of car when putting top up. Oil just started leaking there today. Oil is light brown, similar to machine oil.

Most likely the top latch is leaking or the line that goes to it. With a car of that age, care must be taken when removing the trim to prevent any damage to it. If you are not experienced with removing these pieces, I recommend that you have a professional or Mercedes-Benz dealership do this repair for you. Here is a link to help you find a shop:
