New Member - R129 Technician

Hi folk,
I've just joined and thought you might appreciate an experienced R129 Technician and Owner in the group.
I may be able to help out with some tech info from time to time.
Tag me into your questions.
Keep those R129's safe.

Mercedes aren't for people who want to have one, it's for people who can have one.

Welcome Craig. Perhaps you could give your advise on this issue that cropped up with my soft top? Seems to creak for 20 or so seconds after closing.

There is a short video as well.

Thanks.

I have not seen this sort of thing ever.
A daylight video might help but I think for diagnosis the car will need to be seen live...
