Top release

HELP!! I went to release the safety catch in order to put the rag top down on my '73 450SL and something let loose inside and the release won't work. How do I get access to the safety catch so I can raise the rear of the top and get to the mechanism and fix it??

Go over to the 107 forum here, and search there, it's been hashed over a few times, so there's plenty of help available.

Remember: It's not just a car. It's an Adventure.
