1998 SLK 230 owner with top going up problem!

HELP!!! I'm trying to sell my 1998 slk 230..I put the top down and all worked
well. Then I went to put it back up..the truck raised up, like it should, but,
the roof wouldn't come up. I noticed that the black piece that folds upward didn't go up...finally a friend and I had to maually put the top up. I'm not a
mechanic but if you can talk me through it I can repair it..I can't afford it because I'm out of a job because of the economy so PLEASE ELP a stranded
Benz fan..I'm the original owner and the car is real quality and I know have 226 K miles on it and going strong..HELP MY BENZ LOVERS!!
