This area is for owners of SL models manufactured from 1972 through 1989. They didn't come with power hard tops (or soft tops), so I'll guess that you actually want the forum for 129 owners. They were made from 1990 through - 2000? 1999? One of those years.varcos said:how do i get my hard top off , because it wont lift up on its own,in fact it wont do anything at all.need help .
