Post convertible top issueS on 1992 r129 ( 500 sl) and car was broked into last night

the convertible top on my R129 is all messed up. first the soft top would only come up 1/2 way and went back down, nect day looked like rain, so i put the hard top on for a few days.
I have checked the
----------hydrqaulic fluid, its full and not leaking,
--------- battery has full charge
---------the motor still ok, not burn out and
--------- i just purchased a new switch Just in case.

Just recently attempted to take hard top back off and it gave me a bunch of problems. I ended up unlocking it manually and it finally came off. Now the safety chime wouldn't STOP so i started pulling fuses. (the #6 fuse under the hood makes it stop BTW, BUT it also makes your blinkers, horn and windows stop as well)
Anyways, now the top won't do anything , motor isn't even making noise. assume its another saftey issue cuz i removed top manually?
so NOW MY CAR WAS RANSSACKED LAST NIGHT AND I AM PISSED
Any help at all would be so so awesome

Jessica, very sorry to hear. First thing I would do is get on the phone with your inscurance company and see if you can get this covered by them. Not saying screw them into fixing it all for you but it was broken into and damaged as well. Where are you located and do you have a indi shop to have it looked at? Sounds like the top went into a certin type of saftey mode.
