99 SLK 230 Roof Cylinder Leak, Help

I have had my 99 slk 230 for one day, top worked fine up till last evening. Fluid coming from all four corners. Where can I find a replacement cylinder that won't break the bank? Can it be by-passed? Then just use an Allen wrench to lock the top in place?

Search down in the R170 forum. R170 SLK Class - Benzworld.org - Mercedes-Benz Discussion Forum

Some people claim to rebuild them Search there you will find lots.

This guy claims to sell a kit to rebuild them. http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r170...hydraulic.html

Good suggestion!

I ordered a rebuild kit from them. I have rebuild several cylinders, just nothing this small, should be a fairly simple task, with the exception of removal and installation. Thanks so much for the suggestion. I will post my experience after installation.
