2003 CLK320 Soft top issue
I've read probably several hundred post regarding issues with the soft top not going up and down. Most have issues similar to mine but i haven't yet figured out the problem so I thought I would post my own.
My 2003 clk320 top will not lower or raise. When I release the top latch I get a fast blink on the button. The windows do lower automatically when the latch is released. The rear rollover headrest function fine no problem.
I have removed the rear panel in the trunk. Here is what I have done.
The fluid was low - topped it off - no change
From reading the post I thought that it might be the 30 amp relay so I replaced it - no change
Taken to a dealer - no codes are being thrown and the dealer wants $230 hour to diagnose with no guarantee - decide to trouble shoot myself first
Next from reading it sound like it may be a microswitch - the luggage cover is in place ( released and reset it 5 or 6 times ) so seems okay
Trunk closed when testing...
I can't seem to find online or looking around in the trunk for these "micro switches". Could someone describe to me where the are or what I am looking for? I am willing to buy a replacement and see if I can get lucky one at a time. Or is there a way to "test" them?
