To remove the hard top you have to operate the switch within 10 seconds of turning the key on. Also, I think the windows have to be down or the doors have to be open.

hi mohammed how are u.. in fact i'm looking for hard top seals which is around the windows both sides. if you can find it please tell me . by the way u need to chack few things for your soft top.. does the soft top switch flashs you you torn the key on? if it flashs it means there is a power to the control unit . does your windows moves when u operate the switch? if it operates the windows it means the control unit is reciveing the signal from the switch and you need to check the pump, fuses in the trunk and the relay on the pump. . if your switch flashes you can account the flashes to find which code does the control unit gives. every code is related to a microswitch in the system. check these things and tell us what u got... good luck.....

hi feras thank you very much for your kind advice, and i am looking for your parts around, and need to ask you about some thing i don't get it (if your switch flashes you can account the flashes to find which code does the control unit gives. every code is related to a microswitch in the system)

and my red switch is flashing but windows is not open and roll bar is not working up or down.

I need more of your help Mr. Feras

Mohammed, I would read codes from the soft top controller, erase them, and then retry the top. If it still doesn't work, read codes again and post them back in the forum.

The procedure for reading and erasing codes is described here: http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r129...pre-94-a.html?. Your car has a 38-pin diagnostic connector, and #21 is for the top controller.
