SL 320 Hard roof problems

Hi
I'm a new member and have a Silver 1990 320sl with black leather interior. The car is in great condition and has 86,000 miles on the clock. The car is based in Ireland
I have two problems at present
1. I tried to put the hard top on recently and the passenger rear locking unit isn't locking the roof down properly. I had to release the roof manually. The soft top goes up and down okay . Any ideas

2. I'd like to take the cassette holder out and replace it with a storage box. Have had it out etc but don't know where to find a suitable insert to hold keys/junk etc

Any hints greatly appreciated

Philip

Have had it out etc but don't know where to find a suitable insert to hold keys/junk etc but i'm in the states, i want $20 for it + shipping. as far as the hard top, did you just get it? i heard from members that the 94-on will not work on the earlier models because of the seal. if your top is from a 90-93 try adjusting the latches,sometimes that works or you might have to get new ones, i have those too, since i'm in the process of parting out my 94 sl320. do you have any leaks from the cylinders? if you do then that's the problem, check the guys on the r129 forum, they are great help on issue like this

Any hints greatly appreciated
