I bought a 1990 500sl and the convertible top closes and latches in the front half but then the back half of the top won't go down and latch. Any suggestions on what's wrong and what to try to correct the problem? Thanks in advance.

it's your proximity and limiting switches (unless your tops frame is bent). The dealer is best equipped to handle this repair, trust me. They can use the hand held tester and it will pinpoint which switch, sensor, etc. is the culprit.

I have the same problem, can you help?

Guys -

The posts on the rear bow of my soft top overshoots the holes by about a half inch. Can you help me to identify the problem? Is there a proximity sensor that dictates how far back the rear bow extends?

This problem occured when I was greasing the rails on my hard top, maybe I dislodged something when I was in ther emucking around?

Thanks,

Mark D.
