New_98 SLK 230


New here, but awesome site already. I have a 98 SLK230, my wife and i love the car however it has bee costly to maintain it. We bought it used with about 35,000 miles on it, it now has 104,000. So as you can see we drive it.

I am having Top issues, so if anyone knows and understands the workings of the top i would love to chat!

The top folds up and falls into trunk (as it should), but the trunk lid will not close to finalize the cycle.

Any Suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Awesome Site!!!

Welcome to the site. I am not to familiar with the convertibles, but I would suggest having an experienced Benz mechanic take a look.
