I had noticed that the retractable hardtop on my 2003 SL500 was very slow when operating. I checked the pump and the fluid was low. I refilled to the proper level but noticed fluid running down the left side of the trunk compartment after operating the roof a few times. I'm sure the lift cylinder is leaking. Can someone please explain to me exactly where the cylinders are located and how do I gain access to them so I can remove them for repairs. Step by step instructions or photos would be a great help. Thanks
