Not familiar with the W124, but if the hydraulic tank is empty may be you can just fill it to get the top to lock. With the top working again, you can then move on to find the leak.
You need to use MB approved hydraulic fluid, not the 'cheap' one from Auto-stores or risk contaminating the rest of the system and more leaks in the future.
