New SLK owner in The OC!

Just got my SLK 230 Kompressor, and I love it!

I'm located in Orange County, California.

Looking for tech info and interesting mods.

My current problem is the driver's side wing flap that jams against the head rest as the top goes down. Any ideas what might be causing this? Perhaps the spring tensioner is weak, or the hinge is damaged and not flexible enough? What usually causes this, and what is the fix?
